Summary: . broke my other camera .recommened by 2 retail camera stores .got exactly what I expected to receive . this was my first choice what's to dislike Not a computer geek so task was daunting but we got through this with everyone's help. tks so much.
Summary: I'm really enjoying this camera, it is easy to use with simple programmes and the zoom and filters are good too. Takes good pictures and the quality if fine for my use. My only complaint would be that this product comes from Germany and because of that only come with a European plug on the charger which is not much use in the UK. Had to spend extra money buying a charger.
Summary: I am enjoying this camera a great deal. Still working out all the things it does but that is part of the joy of a new camera. Taking it on holiday next week so will be able to play with the zoom,trying to keep up with the wild life.
Summary: A have had my Fuji Finepix F30 for about 7 years and it is still great, but only x3 zoom. I am now doing more wildlife photos so decided to upgrade. First stop was Fuji, as they use great lenses and are very intuitive to use. I have only had this F800 a couple of days but I am already impressed. The optical zoom is great (could resolve our cat's whiskers from 10 feet away) and general picture quality is excellent, as expected.
Summary: So complicated for a 70 year old to get the best out of it. I would need to carry an instruction book to remember all the very good points this camera has. But I am happy with it and am determined to conquer RAWs.
Summary: I'll start on the superficial. This camera looks great; I chose the black design and it has a matt, rubbery texture which gives it a superior appearance compared to shiny, cheap looking material. The camera has a decent weight to it, which is certainly explained by the magic of having a 20x optical zoom folded neatly inside. When the lens is extended fully it still looks stylish (rather than a clown-rolling-out-of-a-tiny-car scenario).
Summary: Very easy to handle and a vast improvement over my last camera, Fuji Finepix S3000, with many more functions. It's a fault not too include an Owner's Guide in the basic pack, this makes it difficult to use all the functions. There should also be a "Memory Card" supplied with the camera.
Summary: I recently tried the Fujifilm Finepix F800EXR camera and although there were a few teething problems I liked it. Compared to my previous F100, this is a much better camera and the picture quality is evident from the outset and the zoom is great. Now to my teething problems. First off, the menus look quite daunting and complicated but once I switched the camera to EXR mode it seemed to work fine - this was a new feature to me from my F100 and makes life much simpler.
Summary: I've been impressed with the images that the F800 takes despite the size of the camera (easily fits in front jeans pocket). EXR-Auto mode means that I just point and shoot and it does everything for me. The Filter modes are nice fun to play with. I found the wireless transfer really good for my Andriod smartphone, but not as easy as I would have hoped on my iPad (although I think it might be a limitation with the iPad rather than the camera app).
