a great beginner camera to learn features of more expensive cameras
4 June 2012
Summary: I find this camera really easy to adjust to, and a great beginner camera to learn features of more expensive cameras. I am shocked by the quality, though it can vary. The only thing i wish it had was longer continous shooting at 12 MP, as well as maybe panoramic shots...
Summary: This sweet little camera replaced one I damaged by putting too much pressure (unknowingly) on the back screen. I was so heartbroken, I sourced the same camera to replace it, and was able to recover my photos, which I couldn't get via cable on the old camera or directly off the SD chip. The feature I use this for most is to take pictures of meals - the macro button is extremely easy and convenient to use, and the pictures come out well.
Summary: I was preparing for a trip to Peru, and needed my first digital camera for my first trip out of the country. Because my room is very sparse, I was hoping to be able to decorate with some very large pictures. In fact, the only thing I cared about was the ability break a picture down into many smaller pieces, print each of them out, and to print each out so that they could be combined into very large pictures of high quality. In this, the camera worked perfectly!
Pros: Very good image quality. Good results at high ISO; even 800 usable for prints. Easy to navigate controls, both on screen and external buttons. More control than most compacts, including shutter/aperture control. Good ergonomics for a small camera.
Cons: Lens cover seems a bit fragile. Battery life poor in quick auto-focus mode. USB port is awkward, buy a card reader.
Summary: I work as a journalist and part of my job is taking photos for the newspaper. I have used this camera on many occasion because of its compact size. It's less intimidating to some. The LCD is bright and clear and my photos look great. Great camera for the price. But I must say, I haven't tried any real action photos yet.
Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Easy to Keep Clean, Easy To Use, Great Picture Quality, Strong Construction
Summary: Excellent camera for the price. We bought the same camera last year and used it while in Bonaire scuba diving with a Fujifilm under water case. I added an Inon 240 and took pictures that rival the Nikon D80. We used the camera in San Francisco last year and lost it in a crowd. We bought another one just like it. Nice color. Easy to use for my wife and kids. The 12 megapixels allowed us to enlarge several pictures that turned out AWUSUE.
Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Easy Setup, Easy to Keep Clean, Easy To Use, Great Picture Quality, Strong Construction
Summary: Very nice camera that easily fits in your pocket but delivers very good picture quality. Low light performance is excellent, and the preset scene modes work well. It is lacking in manual controls, but most people won't miss these features.
Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Easy to Keep Clean, Easy To Use, Strong Construction
Summary: This is actually my third Fujifilm. The first one I had dropped and it wedged one side of the lens in so I kept getting a zoom error. This one I had the same thing happen to. I am very careful to make sure I have the string around my wrist. However with this new one that I haven't had for 2 months yet, I went to hand it to someone and the lens was already opened. It was dropped and also wedged on one side of the lens.
