My First Digital Camera: FinePix A330

Tue Oct 19, 2004 11:34 pm

A month ago, I broke down and got my first digital camera. I've been a film shooter (especially SLR 35mm), but my Olympus IS-20 broke down just before I left for London to start school (so I could not get it fixed in time). So, I had to scramble and get a camera. Mom suggested I try out one of the digital cameras at our local RadioShack.

I found, for $312.30, a Fuji FinePix A330 and extended warranty and 128MB picturecard. I've been getting used to it.

Last Saturday, I went out spotting at LHR and got some nice approach shots at both runways, as well as some on the ground (including the aircraft-crossing-the-road area).

Does anyone else use a FinePix A330 for planespotting photos? Please let me know if it's good for that. My photos look pretty good (weather was not the greatest, but I got some nice widebody approach and aircraft-crossing shots).
The zoom is not as long as I would have liked (my Olympus IS-20 had a good, long 110mm zoom lens built in), so I later on zoomed and cropped my photos on the camera.

Please let me know how you think of the FinePix A330 for planespotting. After all, it's my first digital camera.
Thanks!
