Excerpt: First of all I have to say that I'm not a photographer, not even an amateur one. I'm just a guy (an electric engineer) who lives abroad and who likes to make photos about his Friends doing parties, playing billiard, hiking, etc... Mostly there are people on my pictures. I have not so high expectations from a camera, I used happily a Canon Powershot SX100 compact for the last 3 years. I can only compare the HS20 with this compact. And the HS20 still fails for me.
Summary: I ordered this item for my Christmas present. I was so excited. I was replacing my old Sony DSC-H2. My son does ballroom dancing and we are in low light and need action shots. My old camera did very well with this; it is a 12x 6 mega pixel. I was excited for the extra zoom and the high pixels. I tried the new Fuji Camera and was very disappointed. The time to record to the memory card was excessive.
Summary: I love this camera. I am only using the auto settings on it at this time as I am a novice. I will be taking photography classes and I know this camera with all its features will fulfill all my needs. I love the way I get crisp clear pictures and am able to zoom in with such clarity. And so many features to choose from. Also bought the accessory kit with the filters screen scratch savers wide angle lenes. Very pleased.

Summary: As with all the latest technology, sometimes a sophisticated device can throw you for a loop no matter how technologically inclined you may be. Some reviews here on Amazon, about this camera, are not so positive, but most of them are. This really is an excellent camera. There are not many cameras like it out there on the market. I'm no pro by any means, but i have learned one valuable lesson regarding the newest digital cameras. READ THE FULL SIZE PDF MANUAL.
Summary: I owned a Sony DSC-H2 (6MP, 12x Zoom) for many years until finally its auto focus just stopped working. After 4 years of heavy use it paid for itself and it was time to lay it to rest. I'm an Architect so I'm no "pro photographer" but I do have an eye for details. I was looking for a high-end point-and-shoot that would out perform my old camera and bring some modernization into my pictures.
Summary: I love this camera. The zoom lens is great and the package was at a super price. I especially wanted Fuji because I've had Fuji cameras in the past and they take great pictures. I highly recommend it.
Summary: I got this as a gift this holiday, wanting an upgrade from my 8mp Fuji, with hardly any zoom. This camera is smarter than I am. It has SO many bells & whistles, I think it will take me a year if not more to learn all it can do! I love the 30x zoom; that's one of the main reasons I wanted this camera. Any point and shoot doesn't give you the zoom this does.
Summary: When I buy, I needed a camera a little more advanced that I had, and this has done, you must use a tripod to achieve zooming. HD video is not the best, and that is focused on each goal, so it is not very practical for that. I conclude that it is very good camera for the price, I hope to use the device's features.
Summary: I am a very old customer of Fuji cameras. I had several cameras and amateur proficionais. I loved all the pictures, videos and functionality of this tag. This home wanted to change my old Fuji 9000 and HS20 series seemed the best choice. The camera arrived very fast and I excited, I started to take pictures of everything at home and garden.
Summary: This is a full feature camera to say the least. I am very impressed with the quality of pictures it takes. I am new to this type of camera so the only negative thing I can say is the fact that this camera comes with the complete owners manual on a cd in a pdf file versus a hard copy with the box. I would prefer a hard copy to refer back to for newbies like me and did not appreciate having to print out 136 pages to supply this need.
