Summary: I like this Fuji camera because it can take better low light photos without flash than others in the same price range. I like it also because it does not limit the use of memory cards to the XD format but can register on the low cost,universal,ubiquitous SD. I dislike it because of its ridiculous limited built-in memory. Like other point and shoot cameras, this built-in memory,good only for a few photos, is a joke in this age of multi gigabyte memory cards.
Summary: Almost loved it except that it sometimes takes a while to take the next photo. Still have not figured out how to set it to maximum pixel size as it always defaults to an average of 2mb which is not enough if I want to blow-up photos. But then again, maybe I just need to read the manual.
Summary: This was bought for my son to use with the underwater case he already had for use in Thailand when he takes tourists on pleasure dives. They like to give them the pictures afterwards for them to take home and show friends and family the underwater experience they had on their holidays. My son likes this camera very much as it is simple to use and sturdy.
Excerpt: "I have had this camera for a few months, overall i find it good value for what i want it for, i generally take pictures indoors in low light and this seems fine for that purpose. It had a handy face detection setting, automatic mode, several pre set options (sports, flower, fireworks, underwater etc) and a manual mode amongst other ones. It will take two photos together - one with flash and one without - and has a handy video mode. The flash seems ...
Pros: Lightweight, Small, Good Range of Settings, Good Picture Quality
Summary: For the money this is very good - the only real gripe is purple fringing (as others have mentioned in back lit trees especially). I especially like the abilty to shoot two shots with and without the flash automatically, this is very handy when you are not sure. Low light abilty is exceptional although an image stabiliser would be useful (both my other cameras have them so I am spoilt in this respect).
Summary: This is my fourth digital camera and this little gem has been amazing. The low light function is quite good and produces crisp results most of the time. The face dectetion also works wonders and faces are much clearer than my previous cameras. The only downfalls are at 8MP the focusing is a little bit soft and if the distance shots aren't as sharp as my other three cameras and the ISO2000 is a definate no-no with this camera as photos tend to be very grainy.
Excerpt: "This digital camera works very well in all kinds of surroundings and you can change the style of picture by the different options such as natural light, 2 photos at once as well as a movie option and a automatic option. This camera also has face detection which enables the camera to pick up faces and use this to improve the quality of the photo. The downfall of this camera is that the photos dont always look good with distance photos being a problem. ...
Summary: If you are looking at this camera, you have probably heard that this Fuji, along with the F31FD, are probably the best small cameras for low light shots currently available. You are probably also agonising over which one to get. Firstly, I rarely print my photos and do not blow them up to 100% to scrutinise on screen so I am commenting from what I see from normal screen viewing.
