Excerpt: sensor broke down after 3 months of use. I really wanted to like this camera. Initial impression was awesome. Nice long zoom capability. Great image quality. But.... Problems: ....sensor broke down after 3 months of use. Need to send it back to manufacturer for repair. No more Fuji cameras for me.
Summary: Fuji can do much better. Construction quality is excellent. There is no excuse for the poor performace. Fuji made me waste my time to return it. So I am writing the experience here. I really like the way the camera feels. It functions like a poor quality 5x optical, where is the 10x?!
Pros: Bad in low light, Bad Zoom despite 10x, Complicated to use, Good Image Quality, Small / Compact
