Fuji Finepix 2800...

Tue Oct 01, 2002 9:36 am

Hi all,

Today I went out and bought a Fuji Finepix 2800...I intend to use it for aviation photography when I get the chance, although that was not the main reason I purchased it. I'm wondering if aviation photos that I do take with this camera, will they end up being of a.net standard or no...max res is 1600x1200...

Thanks,
Greg

Sure they can make it, it matters if the photographer makes them look good enough, and most important: shoots them!

Greg,
I've got one of the 2800's as well. The 6X zoom can limit you at times, so I usually use my Olympus C-700 or my Nikon N80 with 400mm lens.

It does do well with color saturation, and shows little or no chromatic aberration.

Just get close, hold it steady, and squeeze 'em off!

Hi Greg,

congratulations on your new camera - I used to take pictures with a Finepix 2800 before I bought a Finepix S602Z.

All of the pics I took with the Finepix 2800 made it into the database !

Good luck !

Fabian

Thanks for the help...glad to know I finally have a shot (no pun intended) with it...my old cam was a Finepix 1300 and I never managed to get a shot accepted with that but thankfully that recently met its end a few weeks ago so I got an excuse to get a new one...

Thanks again,

BA777,

I really love this great camera ! I would highly recommend it, and no, I haven´t heard about the teleconverter...

Best regards

Fabian
