Summary: I have used for a few months so far. There are a lot of settings for the "pros". As I only take a few pictures, I only use a few settings. So far, good. The battery lasts a lot better than my other camera that used AA batteries.
Summary: I don't like carrying my SLR on long flights or hikes so this is a very nice pocket style camera. Compact, with good zoom, wide angle and some other decent manual options including f-stop changes and variable shutter speeds, it's a good substitute. I'm concerned about durability since my first camera broke down after about 2 years; but Fuji replaced it free of charge.
Summary: If it's a point and shoot you're looking for, then this is a good camera and seems to be a better bang for the buck than a lot of the other point and shoots. It does a lot. Takes pretty good pictures. The menu isn't as easy to navigate as I'd hoped it would be but I get where I want to be in the end. It does have a manual setting, where you can adjust aperture and shutter speed, which I've never seen on a point and shoot.
Summary: Overall, a GREAT point and shoot. Very fast response from the off position to the actual shot. Lots of cool modes to play with. However, the movie mode was somewhat blurry at times. I start to record a shot and a shot that was completely crisp will suddenly get all fuzzy?!? Not every time, but very annoying nonetheless. Other than that, an awesome value.
GOOD camera: MY Mistake: NOT Out-of-focus zoom, color too yellow

Summary: One day later...I realized I wasn't using the camera correctly. There's nothing wrong with the camera--it was user error. I'm revising my rating and apologize for giving it such a poor rating in the first place. I received this camera last night and was eager to try it out. What a disappointment to discover that zooming in on an object (cat) just 15 feet away would result in a very blurry, out-of-focus photo.
Summary: I like this camera. Lots of functions, and attractive, seemingly high quality. Takes a bit of time to learn the locations of everything. My only complaint is that you can't charge it through the usb port and that it has a special connector for the camera to the computer, not the typical android connector. So I have to be super careful not to lose or break it, and to remember to charge the battery in the battery charger.
Summary: Had to find a camera, inexpensive, long zoom for taking pictures rapidly. Results are very good with details and nice color balance. Decent flexibility in settings for a point and shoot camera. Sometimes colors are not as vivid as real life. I would buy it again for general picture taking.
