Summary: Pros: Much better pictures than smaller digital cameras. Has a zoom lens.and an alternate viewer which is nice in the sun. Cons: Can not import photos via USB cord with Windows 10. According to internet forums, this seems to be a general problem with Fujifilm cameras at this point.

Summary: The closest you can get to a digital SLR without getting one. It's 1/2 the price of a DSLR with 95% of the features. This is the 4th Fujifilm FinePix camera I have purchased. This is the first one I have purchased that uses a proprietary battery.
