Summary: I bought this camera in July 2013 and it's already broken... The zoom just decided not to work and it's stuck ! Please help!!! What can I do????? I have only used the camera a dozen or so times. I use my bigger Cannon when I travel.
Summary: battery life is only 2-3 hours and if you are using the camera constantly and using the flash, it might even be less than that. the quality of the pictures is not as good as the "specifications" might suggest. the bulging front part makes it ugly and very difficult to carry in your pocket. the flash is basically useless and u have to take many pictures before you are satisfied with the lighting. focus is not good at all.
Summary: It did indeed look good. My wife was very happy with her Christmas present. After 1.5 days of taking pictures, an error message was displayed. "lens control error' fatal. I sent to Fuji because instructions said to send it to them and not the seller. Fuji sent me a repair notice: $115.00 to repair it. Not bad for a item I paid $129.xx. I had four Fuji cameras years ago and they were flawless. IMPORTANT FOLLOWUP. I finally received a response from Fuji.
Summary: Complete garbage. Battery life is bad, Does not focus when using the zoom feature, shoots horrible video, and the zoom lens gets stuck in the open position at full zoom. The screen keeps indicating "lens error, turn camera off and back on to reset" EVERY TIME I use the zoom feature. Finally the zoom lens got permanently stuck in the open position and I threw it in the trash! Undependable, ANNOYING piece of junk! DO NOT buy this, you will be sorry!
Summary: Before purchasing this camera, you should be prepared to purchase additional batteries, and keep them charged at all times. The camera takes beautiful photographs, but battery life is literally about 3 days whether you take 2 photographs or 200. I followed all the suggestions on Fuji's support page for changing settings that might be sapping the battery life. It made no difference. One suggestion was to never use the EXR shooting mode. That's why I chose this camera!
Summary: I did a lot of research when looking for a camera and found this to be the best one for the money. By no means is this Amazon's fault but it is a defective camera. Sending it back, getting a new one and hoping the new one does not fault.
Summary: Resuming in one word: disappointed. My zoom button broke in two weeks Images on low light are awful, definition pass really far from this camera. I've tried to use an stand but still looks like that is sand on the picture. Camera its very pretty and small, zoom when work is great too, but image quality are poor.
Excerpt: Just got it as a replacement for the F31fd but the images that come out are less. I might need to play around with it more but so far I'm disapointed. Should have spend a bit more moeny and listen to the sales men and go with maybe less zoom but better camera.
Summary: I ordered this camera with high expectations..BUT upon using it for 2 weeks I am returning it...like the one reviewer stated...It would not focus at full telephoto...a couple of times the telephoto lens would not retract ..had to turn it off then back on to reset..when taking some outdoor photos with the sun at my back 2 of the pictures were completely washed out...as was already stated ..very poor low light pictures..slow response on focus.
Summary: Hi I purchased this camera after waiting for a month for it to hit the market. I read the specs over and over before I got it. After I got my hands on it,I took it out on a beautiful morning and got the shock of my life. I have a D-90 with a 18-105 and a 70-300mm. I wanted something pocket-sized to carry at all times.Also I needed something to reach out 500mm.The focus on this camera was terrible from 25 through 500mm.
