Summary: We bought this a gift for our son (after doing extensive research) for part of his college graduation gift. He then drove cross-country and captured the trip in pictures. He loves the camera because it is compact and takes great pics.
Summary: I used to have a finepix f10 (and a much older before that which I used for 5 years and only replaced because it was old; was still working great and very sturdy). I used it a lot for taking photos for my food blog. It was great on close up with no flash.
Summary: Maybe I am doing something wrong but my battery gives up after only 6 hours and four or five pictures if the GPS tracking system is not manually turned off, at least that is why I think the battery has such a short life. apparently the GPS does not shut off when the camera is turned off.
Summary: I did a lot research on this class of camera. This is by far the best choice for: battery life , ease of use, and picture quality. Buy a Sandisk 16 Mg ultra memory card, (the camera does not come with one) and you will have enough speed and memory for any outing or vacation.
Summary: Purchased this camera through Murphy's Camera Shop and was very impressed with how quickly it arrived. They even sent the $50.00 rebate form. I sent the form in and received my check in a week..wow! Now for the camera..I purchased for a wedding gift for my son and his new wife.
Summary: Tiny little camera with amazing results. Bought this for my husband, but now I want it. Haven't learned how to use all the features yet, but point-and-click is excellent. So is video. It's so much easier to slip this little camera in your pocket when you're on a trip.

I am reposting that here also, in its entirety, because it contains quite a lot of info in the F300EXR too, and thus may...
