Fujifilm FinePix Z1 - First impression extremely positive
The Fujifilm FinePix Z1 digital camera has a beautiful appearance. Nicely finished matte black of solid quality which certainly won't give you a 'plastic' feeling when holding the camera. Despite the stiff design, without handgrip, the Fujifilm Z1 lies comfortably in your hand. The large LCD monitor on the back of the camera makes it possible to share your images with others without having to fight each other off to catch a glimpse of a small screen. The monitor works really well as a viewfinder and we don't miss the optical viewfinder at all. The status of the Fujifilm FinePix Z1 digital camera is not ready for production yet, not yet anyway at the time we had the camera in our possession, but the first impressions are extremely positive.
Fujifilm FinePix Z1 - Further development
The Fujifilm FinePix Z1 could be the first one of a new series of digital cameras that can be expected this year. The design can develop further, for example more colours, or different resolutions. At this moment the Z-series has one lonely representative, the Z1 digital camera but I can imagine an enhancement with lower and higher resolutions. In any case Fujifilm presents a beautiful digital camera with the FinePix Z1 at which quality and design go hand in hand effortlessly.
Fujifilm FinePix Z1 - Recommended
At this moment we have come to the conclusion that the Fujifilm FinePix Z1 is recommendable. Unless the final production model differs a lot from the pre-production model we've got here, but that seems not very likely to me. The Fujifilm Z1, with the built-in 5th generation Super CCD HR technique and the application of the Real Photo technology distinguishes this new Fujifilm sibling from the other competitors. The trend of designer cameras didn't escape Fujifilm's attention, and introducing the Fujifilm FinePix Z1 made it obvious that Fujifilm understands how lifestyle products should distinguish themselves from traditional digital camera models, and I would like to add, Fujifilm didn't miss the actual fact of what a digital camera is about: photography and quality. Shall we say: to be continued??

Fujifilm FinePix Z1 - xD Picture card
The features of the xD Picture memory card are: ultra compact, light as a feather and a large storage capacity. 2GB xD Picture cards are also scheduled for the upcoming period. And finally the storage capacity will be able to grow to an astonishing capacity of 8GB! The Fujifilm FinePix Z1 is standard delivered with 16MB of memory which is nothing more than a nice gesture for a 5 Megapixel digital camera. A card that size is not very useful, so I'd advice you to go out and buy a minimum storage capacity of 256MB, or preferably an even higher capacity.
Concerning a 256MB xD Picture memory card:
