FujiFilm FinePix A170/A175
Released July, 2009
The Pros:Solid build quality, doesn't feel cheap and can handle a few bumps. Lens has great light-gathering ability, results in sharp and clear images with great color. Zoom motor is fairly quiet, won't disturb other people.
The Cons:Battery meter seems a little inaccurate, not a good judge of how long the battery is going to last. Darker scenes are very noisy, details get lost. Video file sizes seem disproportionately large considering the resolution and length of the clip.
