Fujifilm FinePix Z2 | Digital Camera Review | Storage and Energy
The Fujifilm FinePix Z2 digital camera comes with a 16MB xD Picture Card. This is nice, but you will soon need more storage capacity. Using the card 122 pictures can be taken in the lowest, but only 6 in the highest resolution and that isn't much. In practice, a 256MB (or higher) should be enough - this is the advantage of digital photography. You could even extend it to 1GB and that's a lot! Look at 1GB storage: 1639 pictures can be stored in the resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels that's more than 45 rolls of 35 mm 36 exposure films! In the lowest resolution of 640 x 480 you can save the unbelievable number of 8000 pictures. To stay with the comparison with the 135 mm: that is 222 35mm 36 exposure film rolls. Of course, people will prefer the high quality resolution that works so well with the Fujifilm FinePix Z2 digital camera and that enables you to print high quality pictures.

xD Picture memory card
The storage capacity of the Fujifilm FinePix Z2 camera can show some deviations in regard to the instruction guide, but with 8000 pictures, you won't care. Large storage is also a good idea for the Fuji FinePix Z2's video function as it will allow recording almost 30 minutes of video. Placing and removing the xD Picture memory card requires some practise, simply because the card is small and there is not much room to place it in. As mentioned earlier, it would be best to invest in an xD Picture memory card with a larger storage capacity.

Considering a storage capacity of 256MB:
Resolution 2592 x 1944 pixels - Fine - 102 pictures
Resolution 2592 x 1944 pixels - Normal - 204 pictures
Resolution 2735 x 1824 pixels - 3:2 - 207 pictures
Resolution 2048 x 1536 pixels - Normal - 325 pictures
Resolution 1600 x 1200 pixels - Normal - 409 pictures
Resolution 640 x 480 pixels - Normal - 1997 pictures

Video resolution 640 x 480 pixels - 30bps - 3 min 43 sec
Video resolution 320 x 240 pixels - 30bps - 7 min 30 sec
Fujifilm Z2 - NP-40 rechargeable battery
The NP-40 rechargeable battery supplied with the Fuji Z2 camera is with 3.5V and 750mAh well equipped to supply energy and last for a long time. According to the manufacturer, approximately 170 pictures can be taken with a fully recharged battery, but as we know, this is at odds with reality, both in the positive and negative sense. If only taking outdoors pictures at ideal temperatures without any flash or zoom movement and an economical setting for the LCD screen it will be possible to take more pictures with the Fujifilm FinePix Z2 than the numbers stated. The number of pictures you can take with full use of all the possibilities will be obviously lower than the stated number. The manufacturer's number was an average and users will make optimal use of the possibilities with a bit of experience and after finding them out.

Fujifilm FinePix Z2 - Recharge your battery
Recharging the battery is done with the battery still placed in the Fujifilm Z2: the camera is placed in the charging station and the LED deftly indicates if it is still recharging. Considering the format of the Fujifilm NP-40 battery, this is the best way to recharge. The Fujifilm FinePix Z2 digital compact camera also scores top points in the areas of storage & energy.
