This was my first Camera when I serious got into photography. I bought this initially to take pictures when I was out clubbing, and for my Undergraduate dissertation. I then started using it a bit more, and realising I really enjoyed taking pictures.

This is an 8.3MP compact from Fujifilm, released in 2007.  It has a relatively good featureset, but is fully automatic with limited override of the settings, and at anything from ISO 400 up the quality begins to get a little ropey.
