Summary: I previously owned a Fuji which I lost on vacation. Earlier I had fallen on top of it on another trip and dented the case, but the little bugger kept on working nicely. The screen, however, was hard to see in sunlight and was small. The new Fuji has a huge screen,much more brilliant that the earlier model. Very easy to use. It also has a rechargeable battery that holds a charge for a huge number of shots.
Summary: This review is based on my personal shooting habits - the ones of a lazy and unskilled photographer that expect the equipment to do the job for me. In more than 90% of the times I shoot in pre-defined or full auto settings. I bought this camera about an year ago, and it was an year old release by then. And just like another reviewer here, I previously owned a J10, which I liked a lot.
Summary: I bought the FinePix J250 to replace a non working 5mp polaroid shooter that i got three years ago. The things i like about this camera are: the huge 5x optical focus, that the usb cable is a standard mini B and that it comes with rechargeable batteries. It's also a very stylish camera and looks really good.
Summary: I previously owned a Fuji similar. So when I received this one, it's just as I expected. Fast delivery. Great camera. It's nice to not have to pull at a larger camera I have and I can still take quality pictures. Nice for storing in your pocket or your purse.
Summary: This is a great camera by Fujifilm. It has plenty of options and is still simple to use. The auto adjust for lighting is more intuitive than my other cameras like Sony and Panasonic. I was surprised to find that the video mode has zoom capabilities while filming - a major plus for me, and the camera's construction is classy but sturdy. The only downside to this camera is its thickness, but then you're getting 5X optical zoom, so it's understandable.
Summary: It is a good low cost little pocket 10Mp camera for $99. It is a simple snapshot camera without too many special function. The body is a little thicker than the newer model of this class. I like the big viewing screen, black metallic body and battery life. The wide angle is also a useful feature. Like all other cameras of this class, the small body isn't easy to handle and the snap button doesn't have a good touching feeling. It doesn't have 16:9 proportion option.
Summary: Camera was received quickly, charged battery and started taking photos. Ease of use and excellent quality photos. Nice and compact, fits in my pocket. I have bought one for myself, my wife and daughter.
Summary: A nice little camera that I can carry with me at all times. Have a lot of problems in sunshine taking a picutre. Guess I'm old fashioned and miss that view finder. But, if you just want to make sure you have a camera that you can easily carry anywhere, this is a good one.
Summary: I got this as a replacement for a older Fujifilm camera that was recalled for a defective Sony Made CCD Sensor Chip, and even tho the older camera was state of the art CCD when new, this new J250 blows it completely out of the water with image quality and low light capability. I tryed Canon and Pentax, as well as Sony and a few other popular brands first, but Fuji as always has the best features, quality and pictures for the price than anyone else.
Summary: I've only had the camera for a couple of weeks now but it seems like a great buy. I don't profess to be a photography buff but picture quality seems excellent to me and I really like the 28mm wide-angle lens and 5x optical zoom and 10 megapixel resolution. Battery life seems excellent and I like that it uses a rechargeable lithium ion battery. Camera construction seems solid and I also like the LCD viewfinder/display.
