Summary: So a few years ago i really wanted a camera because i did not have one. I like to do a lot of research about what im looking for before i buy it. So i found this camera and it works really well. The pictures are amazing and the zoom is real nice. Its slim and slides right into your pocket. I have a case for mine because i did not want it to get messed up because it looks so nice.
Summary: I purchased this camera as a gift because I own one myself and love it. It takes great pictures and is very reasonably priced. My only complaint about this camera is the lag time of the shot. Sometimes the subject has moved on before the flash/shutter snaps ruining the shot. Of course, this is a point and shoot not a digital SLR so that is expected across all brands, not just this one. For the price it's a minor, although sometimes aggravating minus.
Summary: Small, easy to use. Good quality pics, great value for the price. Some cameras do more, but this does everything a novice could possibly want, and the 8.2 megapixels is a high resolution for an entry level camera. No complaints at all. Great little camera.
Summary: I now have 3 of these cameras with one battery charger. It is a nice, compact camera but the battery charger is separate and easily lost. The after-market battery chargers are cheap to buy but don't last more than a week. You must buy the Fuijifilm battery charger and it's about sixty dollars (twice the cost of a camera off ebay)! If you buy a camera off ebay make sure you get the "Original Fujifilm Charger" otherwise you'll get junk like I did.
Summary: I ordered this camera on Nov 24th from Amazon.com as a Christmas present to be sent to my son in Montana. Because of the range of delivery days the seller gave for delivery, I had to wait until Dec 17th to find out that he didn't send the camera. USPS tracking showed he had sent electronic notification that he intended to send a camera, but they hadn't received it.
Summary: I bought this for my mother who is still using film and mentioned she might like to try a digital. I wanted one that was very simple or i know she wouldn't use it. This camera has all that a lst time user/very technically challenged person would need or want. No bells and whistles. Just simple good pictures with a bit of zoom to it. Compact and good size lcd so can see easily what your taking picture of.
Summary: This camera takes pictures that are very crisp looking until enlarged beyond a standard 8.5" x 11" paper size. It has a generous amount of functionality although I would have liked the option of changing the shutter speed in the manual shooting mode. Overall I am very pleased with this point-n-shoot, especially for the price.
Summary: My wife and I were originally going to buy a Canon SD1200, but the Fuji was $30 cheaper and I wanted to try something different after my old 4mp Canon, which took very good pictures but had been damaged. Within a few days of buying the Fuji I regretted it. The flash creates very washed out indoor pictures. I was shocked when I saw the first shots of our baby- my old Canon had much better colour definition with flash.
Summary: I think that the pixels are really great on it, however, I've had better cameras.
Pros: The quality in the pixels are great and that's the only thing i can think of.
Cons: I've had this camera for a few months and from what I've recognised only using it a few times, is that the flash on it is way too powerful. The very first picture I took made me white, to the point where you'd think I was a ghost, and I'm pretty tan. The lens doesn't even focus on the person. Some pictures I take end up blurry as well. Since I'm an amateur photographer, this really bothers me and I really want to throw it against a wall or break it into a million bite...
