Stylish-looking camera, but the photo & video quality is poor

Summary: I used to love Fuji cameras. My first digital camera was a Fuji A205 2 MP camera and it still takes decent photos. Not this one....and yes, maybe I received a defective camera, but I don't think I did. Build quality is great. I happen to love manual flashes and you can bounce this one off the ceiling if you wish. Although I don't know how long it would hold up if this was done often. The zoom motor sounds strong and responsive. I got the white and it's beautiful.

Summary: The camera arrived from Amazon defective. The lens would not come out when the camera was turned on. Amazon would not exchange it for one that worked, therefore I had no choice but to send it to Fujifilm for repair. I have returned from being away from home - would have been nice to have the camera along - and the camera had arrived back here. I haven't re-installed the battery, hand strap, etc. and do not yet know if it now functions properly.
Excerpt: As an original, longtime owner of a Fujifilm Finepix F30, I have fond memories of a camera that outperformed most in its class, especially where low light performance is concerned. That being said, I also have no illusions: Fujifilm makes some great digital cameras but quality control would appear to be a weak point. I started off years ago with the Finepix F10 and after two duds in a row — each had issues with "focus hunting" — I ended up with the F30.
Summary: Hi users and reviewers of this camera: The blurb above says, "High Speed Continuous Shooting Capture action at almost 8 fps at full 16-megapixel resolution or shoot at 11 fps at 8-megapixel resolution" and the manual on page 47 describes how to do this ... but I only ever got three pics. That's hardly continuous. So I called customer support and they confirmed that it does not shoot true continuous, just three separate pics with one shutter press.
Summary: 4-stars for camera design and still image quality, 1 star for video. I have tested and compared images, video, features, and usability for all the top ultra-zoom compacts including Fuji F770EXR/F750EXR, Canon SX260HS, Sony HX9V, Panasonic ZS-15 and ZS-19/20. This was the last camera I compared and I was expecting to really like it as Image Quality is my first priority criteria, followed by video, then features/usability.
Summary: Ha un buon zoom però è complicata e le funzioni in manuale sono ripetute da varie funzioni dissociate tra di loro.Se si mette in modalità silenziosa non funziona il Flash?!Perchè non si sà?!Il fuoco nella modalità video non esiste bisogna aspettare che trovi un soggetto abbastanza grande e poi mette a fuoco.La batteria non dura tanto è la stessa di un piccolo cellulare. Ci sono macchine migliori allo stesso prezzo.
Excerpt: Ich stelle Euch eine Kamera vor, die ich mir Ende November auf Amazon.de kaufte, mittlerweile aber wieder retourniert habe, da ich mit ihr unzufrieden war. Hätte ich mich VORHER besser im Web informiert, wäre mir eventuell der Fehlkauf auch nicht passiert, denn auf digitalkamera.de wurde genau die fehlende Fotoqualität, die ich erlebte, auch schon mehrfach bemängelt...
Pros: schöne Optik, sehr guter Videoton, kleine Abmessung, 20x optischer Zoom, 3D
Cons: kein wav - Format, schlechte Bildschärfe, Probleme beim automatischen Scharfstellen bei Foto u Video
Summary: Die XXX draussen im Viertel nebenan knallen - ALDI etc. seis Dank - schon wieder Vögel im Garten zu Tode mit Böllern, die sie sich ja eigentlich angeblich nicht leisten können, daher lenk ich mich mal ab mit meinem Bericht über eine Kamera, die ich mir Ende November auf Amazon.de kaufte, mittlerweile aber wieder retourniert habe, da ich mit ihr unzufrieden war.
