Summary: Everything was in excellent condition. What more can I say. The camera speaks for itself. Since I'm unable to use the camera at this time. You'll just have to settle for meaningless words to fulfill the one hundred characters.
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. So after 2 years of using it (still working great and sturdy despite being subjected to flour and oil) I thought I'd "upgrade" to this one. Was I in for a major disappointment. None of the indoor photos were clear.
Overall a very nice camera for serious point and shoot user. Great value!

Summary: Easy to use. Excellent picture quality. Long zoom. Flash on left pops up at fire up, kind of annoying and located where I would like to hold that side of the camera. Slightly small for my large chunky hands!
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. Took forever to figure out how to format and since it is one of the steps you must do to get the camera to work I wonder why they made it so hard to find?
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: I decided to buy this camera because of the features, particularily the 15X zoom feature. It fits comfortably in my pocket and is easy to use. The only complaint is that the operation Manual is on a CD disc. There were some features I wanted to use while out on a trip obviously I could not reference a CD while in the field. Serious shortcoming !! Except for that item, I really like it. My first outing with it was at the Albuquerque Hot Air Balloon Festival.
