Excerpt: The reason I bought the Fujifilm FinePix S100fs camera is it has a fixed lens with a large zoom range. Therefore there is no need to change / carry an extra lens with you. Also there is less chance of dust or dirt getting into the camera. I have used Fujifilm cameras before, which made it easier for me to learn the new features. I absolutely enjoy the S100fs camera!
To save the cost of SLR lenses,Great image quality than other megazoom.

Summary: Great ISO.1600 usable.3200 and up depends upon conditions.Versatile lens with strong zoom and image stabilization.Neutral to bright and sharp colors.Good flash.Nice ergonomics.Easy menu.BUT heavy.Automatic mode works perfect.Potraits and macros are amzing.More than a point and shoot.Bridge between point & shoot and DSLR.Sensor size is 2\3 which is great for low light and night snap shots.Actually,did i say excellent?
Summary: Just about any shot you can take with a dslr camera you can take with the S100FS. I took courses at a local camera shop and at the local community college and my instructors were amazed. Much more powerful than the hs10. All the bells and whistles of just about any canon, sony, or nikon. Only lacking a wider range for the apenditure. Other than that, I take pictures like the pros!
Summary: I bought this camera as a gift for my sister, she was pleased to see that the camera was smaller then she expected and light weighted.. She also liked the design and the fact that the camera has lithium battery that can be chatged by USB cable.. The camera is easy to use and operate.. It has pretty big LCD screen.. Pictures quality are impressive until you go into 10X zoom.. Bottom line.. great camera for the price.. recommended.
Summary: I needed a new camera and liked the features this particular model has. It is lightweight and easy to operate. Does everything is promises! The 10X zoom in is awesome. The company I purchased this refurbished item from held up to their offer of replacement if anything went wrong. I did have some difficulties, mailed the item back to them and received a replacement within in a week. I would recommend purchasing from them to anyone.
Summary: After waiting 2 years to buy this camera I now know the wait was well worth it! Great Camera, was a little surprised how heavy it felt at first but that was only because I was using really light weight cameras. What a differents with my pictures, everything is just so easy to find. Really a great buy for my 'with love from me to me Xmas gift'!
Summary: Why would anybody buy an SLR when the Fuji s100fs has all the features and performance in a smaller more convenient package. No lugging extra lenses around to get the versatility. The only preference I would have is if the camera used AAA or easily purchased batteries. Although the supplied battery holds up well and can be easily found it still ties you to 110 volt for charging. I choose to carry more than 1 at all times.
