Summary: My older Vivicam had quit working so I needed a replacement. The Fujifilm camera has worked very well for my purposes. It is easy to use and takes very good quality pictures. It is lightweight and small. Screen size nice. Batteries don't last as long as I would like but is acceptable. Would like to have a viewfinder in the camera, but not many seem to have this feature anymore. Overall, a great little camera.
Summary: great for first time user--not so good for adults--lacks the capability that other digital cameras have--uses batteries instead of recharger which can be advantage with children, but not adults

Summary: Solid Camera. Awesome that it runs off 2 AAs. Decent camera for the price. Don't expect insane options since this is a fairly cheap (in terms of price) camera. I also traveled to Harbin, China, where the temps were around -25 C or -15 F in the daytime, and the camera would not function or open after about 15 minutes in this weather. However this is extremely cold weather so I am not sure many digital cameras would work.
Summary: I bought this because it rated well on the web. I really like it because it is very easy to use, has a nice sized LCD view screen, and takes decent pictures. It's only fault is the picture is about a 3.2 Meg file. I was expecting bigger. I just got it, so I may have to make a setting change I don't know about yet. The only other minus is it isn't rechargeable like my other camera. You have to buy rechargable batteries and charge them yourself.
Summary: Good camera. Do I like it better than my old Kodak EasyShare? - NO. The picture quality is just okay especially for this camera to be 10MP. My old Kodak EasyShare was only 5MP and the picture quality was much better. Am I sorry I purchased it? - No, not at all. I like the ease of use and how light weight it is. It's a good camera. I hope it lasts longer than the Kodak EasyShares which only has a lifespan of about 2 to 3 years.
Summary: I choosed this camera for the easy of use stated on some reviews. It was a gift for my wife these Christmas and I'm very satisfied that the unit is so easy to use, just put the batteries, the sd card and you are ready to take photos. I love it.
Summary: I purchased this camera Thanksgiving of 2009. I shot around 400 pictures with it. Slowly but surely the zoom lens stopped working. I went to a lot of trouble to ship it to FujiFilm. They found a few specks of sand in it and said that voided the warranty. I took good care of this camera and have to strongly disagree with the result I got from the company. I think they're just looking for reasons to not replace the camera. Big disappointment.
Summary: This little camera is great for me. It is easy to use and connect for uploading. The battery feature is appealing for me, meaning I don't have to rely on an electrical outlet. I always keep a couple batteries with me for back up emergency. I am very happy with the picture quality for my needs.
