I have just bought a Fujifim S2980 camera but as I do not live

This answer was rated:

I have just bought a Fujifim S2980 camera but as I do not live near an outlet I'm confused about which accessories are required before ordering online.
1. Mains adaptor or mains adaptor/charger plus coupler if required
2. rechargeable batteries and charger
3. camera case - I think it will be the one for Finefix S/SL/HS

Thank you for using Just Answer my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help with your question.

carlday1 :

The camera has the following with it when you buy it

What’s in the box

  • Fujifilm FinePix S2980 Digital Camera

  • 4xAA type alkaline batteries

  • Shoulder strap

  • USB-A / V cable

  • Lens cap and Lens cap cord

  • CD-ROM

  • Owner's manual

carlday1 :

The mains adapter is useful when downloading lots of photos to your computer it will save you wasting battery power. You could also use rechargeable batteries in the camera but you will need to buy ones with a high mAH so that they last a while.

carlday1 :

This link has all the accessories listed.


Thank you. I know what was in the box. My problem is identifying precisely which mains adaptor featured above is compatible. It is a pity that Fujifilm does not provide any form of customer service attached to the link you quoted. Hence my problem.

carlday1 :

You will need the mains adapter and the coupler because the camera does not have a mains input you need to put the coupler into the battery compartment.


Thank you -but I already know what came in the box. I need help regarding which specific mains adaptor I require. There are quite a few to choose from and I don't understand fully the specifications. It is a pity that the website you quoted above -the same that I was using doesn't have its own customer enquiry/advice service -preferably a phone number. I do hope you can help.

carlday1 :

You will need the main adapter AC-5VX and also the coupler CP-04

I would recommend buying the Fuji adapters and not any compatible ones.

The contact numbers for fuji UK


They will be open tomorrow and hopefully they will be able to help you order the correct one direct off them.


Thank you but I do know what was in the box. I have used the website you quoted but my problem is that I don't understand the specifications re compatibility and in particular the mains adaptor. Which one do I buy that works with my camera ? it's a pity that that website doesn't have it's own enquiry line- preferably a phone number. I do hope you can help me by providing precise information as I am at a loss and I have a holiday coming up.

carlday1 :

Did you get my reply with the uk phone numbers?


Many thanks - brilliant help -sorry I sent several versions of reply but when I hit Reply I wasn't sure whether it had gne or not
