Yesterday I brought a Fujifilm Finepix JV300 so as to have a basic camera to hand until finding a DSLR replacement as I have felt quite bereft without a  camera to carry about.

I chose the cheapest camera on offer in the shop as I just wanted something basic to have to hand and wasn’t expecting too much.

The battery has been unreliable, suddenly cutting out after showing that it was fully charged and I haven’t enjoyed working with out a view finder even though the LCD screen is a good size.

One function that I have enjoyed is the panoramic option that knits three shots together. (I have come across editing soft wear which will do this but it is a fun widget to have it available on the camera).
