Summary: I want to make it clear up front, I bought the AX560 refurbished, which may, or may not make a difference in my review! Simple review, it works VERY well, and is small, and light! Detailed review, I am still exploring the features of this camera, but have noticed odd glare, or purple lines/haze a few times on the screen, BUT have since bought and used brand name rechargeable batteries, and have not noticed this wierd effect.
Summary: It worked for about a month, then the low battery warning came on and the camera went off, permanently. I changed the batteries, only to have the low battery warning come on immediately and the camera shut itself off. I tried several different brands of batteries, nothing works. When I did some research, I found out this is such a common problem with this model, Fujifilm no longer makes, sells, or supports it.
Great basic camera with little to no grainy images

Summary: I bought it to create close-up photos of text on machinery. Just a few minutes of experimenting with the (easy to use) menu, and I had perfect photos, anywhere from 2ft to 3inches from the subject. The zoom is excellent at automatically focusing on a subject at any distance. I also took photos of my property from approximately 100ft distance, and those photos also turned out just great.
Summary: I like the small Fuji cameras. The ease of panorama pictures makes for some excellent pictures. I got this one used for a good price but I would not have gotten it if it did not have that feature.
The camera size works out great , 16megapixel great , but sizing needs sma

Summary: This is the third small camera I have bought. I had an E550 that I dropped in Turkey -- replaced it with AX550 that work great for about a year, it just quit -- bought the AX560 about the same as the AX550 -- took it thru Cambodia, Vietnam worked great except 1 night I forgot to reset it -- couldn't get pictures that night --- next day reset it and worked fine- I use as a backup for places I don't want to take my bigger camera.
Summary: I bought this camera to replace the same camera I had used for 7 months as a home inspector. After receiving it, I started to use it. It lasted a week. The telephoto button stopped working. I am keeping it as a backup with no telephoto options. I will not buy another from this site.
Summary: ~ The battery and memory chamber door broke on my Canon PowerShot SX 100 and the cost to repair was about $100.00. I paid $70.00 for this camera from Wal-Mart. The Canon is about five years old, has more wheels, switches and setting than you can poke a stick at, does a good job of taking pictures, but requires a keen memory to remember all the settings. Plus, it is a little too large to carry comfortably so I went looking for another camera.
Can't rotate pictures, can only post one picture at a time

Summary: I am really disappointed in this camera. I wanted a camera that used regular batteries as I've had issues with the rechargable cameras (namely, no charge when you needed to use the camera). There aren't many cameras on the market now that use regular batteries. This camera has a much faster shutter than my old one, which I liked, but imagine my surprise when I went to post pictures on Facebook and found that I can only post one picture at a time.
Summary: LOTS OF FUN EASY TO USE AND AWESOME CAMERA MODES FOR THE BEST Quality, I use it a ton for every event that comes my way. Such a great buy I bought it twice when my first one sustained water damage. The night photos are really good in night mode.would buy it over and over again.
