Summary: I've had good luck in the past with Fuji F20 and F45 cameras. The F100fd looked to me like an F45 with more zoom and image stabilization; an attractive package. The camera is just that. It takes dependably good pictures in Auto and Manual modes.

Great camera if you take the time to learn how to use it
