Fujifilm FinePix 4900 ZoomA 2.4 Megapixel Super CCD sensor – produced 4.3 megapixel images, back when Fuji used to interpolate the images to a higher resolution than the sensor for a little bit extra detail. This camera has a whopping 6x optical zoom lens and SLR styling, with manual controls, and the ill-fated SmartMedia card. This was thin, fragile and limited to a maximum of 128mb. (That’s right, there was something worse than XD cards). It was one of the first, if not the first digital camera with an electronic viewfinder, it features a 2 inch normal screen on the back as well as manual focus. This camera was announced and released in 2000 – which goes to show that Fujifilm’s “bridge camera” / “ultra zoom” heritage goes back a LONG way. Rather impressively the 4900 Zoom shoots at 5fps for 5 shots at full resolution! You can still find working models on ebay, and the camera uses a rechargeable NP-80 battery shared with a couple of other cameras (some other Fuji and Kodak cameras).
