I think the A40 offers better value but it very much depends on what you are looking for in a DC.

I previously owned a FJ2800z. Love the 6x zoom and very friendly and easy to use. Can also take video clips of 60sec each. The total number of clips depends on the size of the smartmedia.

Pictures turned out very nicely and look more saturated than compared to A40. It is also easier to take macros with it.

I sold my FJ2800 cos its maximum shutter exposure is 0.5 secs. This means that you can't take night shots with it. It is purely a P&S camera.

I bought myself an A40 cause it allows me to play a bit more with manual settings, maximum shutter exposure is 15 secs, can attached lenses and filters to the camera. What I miss abt FJ2800z is definitely the zoom.

BTW, you should be able to get the Fuji2800zoom at $650. A group of us got it at that price at Alan Photo in Dec 2001. Prices could be cheaper by now.

hey thanks for the insights!!!

really appreciate it. i think me and my fren can make a decision. we will go for the 2800Z instead of the A40 coz we really dont dig night shots.

so i guess being newbies, the 2800Z is kinda fine with us.. especially like the movie mode- 60 secs!!! and the zoom for digital stills. 6X!!! and we also like the more bulkier body. weve held a A40 once- very hard to hold coz we got huge hands.


thanks again for the comments. :D:thumbsup: :thumbsup: good stuff.

i bought the 2800Z for my gf... she just loves it. carries it everywhere and takes anything. the use of AA batteries is also a plus cos can use rechargeables and it's more convenient for travelling overseas.

yeah .....coz from onlines pics i saw , the cam look quite "fat" or big.....
however , it is really a VERY small and compact for a 6x optical cam(the lens are big though :p)....you just have to hold it in ur hands to feel it...:D

4 AA batt is the norm.......anyway using AA batt is an advantage cos its available througout the world...unlike proprietary batt.

U ought rechargeable batt? Can save $$$ in long-run.
