Great grab and go camera for the digital photographer.
10 December 2012
Summary: Amazing quality for the value. Has a quality video feature that actually has very good sound. Dial allows SP setting with text option, no need for a copy machine with this camera in your pocket. Fairly durable to my surprise and user friendly. The manual is very readable and easy to understand.
Summary: This is a good Camera. But it ain't waterproof. Learned that the hard way. The optical zoom produces a good upclose picture. It's just a good little camera worth the money. Just don't take it fishing with you.
Summary: I Bought this camera from ebay, it has Great video Quality, Great Picture Quality, and it has a lot of Other Options. The Only things might be postive is the battries, it takes alot of power quick, but i fixed this issue by buying rechargeable battries. Video excellent, Photos excellent
Summary: I bought this camera to take pictures of my garden. I used it maybe four times, and then started having problems with the batteries. I would take two or three pictures, not even using the flash, and would get a low battery message.
Summary: I bought for my work. It is simple to use and fits in my pocket. It also worked with my current Fuji photo program. The macro feature is what sold me on this camera, takes great close-ups of print.
Summary: This is my everyday 'backpack' camera, when I'm not carrying my slightly larger Fuji S700 or much larger S9000. It replaces my excellent A400 because of it's added features, such as the 4X zoom instead of 3X (not a big difference, but enough), as well as all the added scene position choices.
Summary: For the first 5-6 months, my 820 did fine with 2700mAh NiMH batteries. Suddenly, upon turn on, the empty battery icon flashes and it shuts down within 5 seconds. I am using the same batteries and even bought new ones. No deal. Sent it back to Fuji for repair. They sent it back with the same problem.
Summary: i bought this camera in July and was immediately impressed. Now its 5 months later and it is starting to act up. The auto focus has become unpredictable and when you power up and down the camera is making a "mechanical" noise that is making me worried that one day it wont power up at all.
