A good camera...BUT

Summary: Takes great photos and is easy to use. Has lots of features for a point and click....however I am using this for my job, which requires GEO-Tagging on all photos, The GPS on this camera is picky about when it gets and signal, which is unacceptable as all my photos MUST have this data or i wont get...
Summary: Takes great pictures on auto mode. Good thing, because all of the features on this camera are new to me, and I'll probably never learn how to use them all. Has many interesting features, including the ability to take black-and-whites and that old-time yellowish-looking pictures.
Summary: Pros: In high light settings it takes fairly good pictures even at full zoom in my shaky hands. The settings took a little getting used to but are nice and easy to work with. There are several settings and I've had fun testing most of them.
Summary: It has lots of features and they are easy to use as long as you remember how to get to them all. The GPS is nice but it's far from accurate. Pictures I've taken have been tagged with GPS as far as a mile off. It's like it takes a long time to catch up to where you are currently.
Summary: This is a good camera, I love the color and the feel it the hand. It has endless features and functions. It always takes great picture no matter who in the family grabs it. The down side is it never seems to stay in the same mode that I set it (family).
Summary: I purchased this model for a vacation trip to Hawaii last winter. I'm rating this model an OK, but I don't think I would buy another Fujifilm product. I would have been better off with a waterproof/weatherproof camera (see Canon) at half the price. Cons Battery life: Wow!
Summary: Camera has a serious problem with vignetteing in the corners at lowest setting. I haven't done anything with this type (P&S) in a very long time and so far it is a learning experience. Once out from minimum zoom the vignette problem disappeared. Photo quality is okay.
Summary: This is potentailly a great camera but has a few draw backs. Before I go into those I must say that it takes really nice photographs. The first problem is that it is not very intuitive to use. Even basic functions are hard to work out without the owners manual.
Excerpt: Best compact I have ever used. Amazing how far technology has advanced. But you need to know a bit about photography to find this out. I am a dslr user, so I am able to exploit the camera and push the sensor to its full capacity (simple things like watching the shutter speed to prevent camera or...
