Summary: I bought this camera last year. I didn't use it much at all. When I charged the battery it charged fully but when I turned it on it only. Stayed on for a few seconds and turned itself off. Once it actually went off before the lens even compressed back! I called the customer serviceI was told to buy a new battery.... 2 things, if this battery is going to last less then a year, I don't think so.
Summary: I bought this camera so I could have a small camera to take every day pictures. After charging it for an hour (the camera said it was fully charged) it only last about 15 minutes. I charged it again overnight and it last a bit longer, maybe 2 days but I only actually used the camera 30 minutes. I'm returning this camera. I don't want a camera that I have to charge up every night. This pictures that I did take seemed to be good.
Summary: We ordered two of these cameras. When the red one arrived we were able to set up the basic information, but when we went to take a picture we received an error message saying "Please turn off the camera and then turn it back on." The lens is stuck out and won't retract back into the camera. The black camera let us take one picture before giving us the same error message. After searching the Internet I found that many people have these same problems with the lens.
Check the serial number it might not be what you thought

Summary: After having a problem with the camera we found out Megadeals.uk had sent us a cheaper model which looked identical to the one we thought we bought. Having contacted Fuji about a problem with the battery pack which Megadeals.uk say isn't their problem. Fuji wanted the serial numbers which then told us that the camera we bought as a JX500 was in fact a JZ100.
Summary: My first ever review, bought this as an xmas present for one of my boys (7yrs old). Bad points Rather than use the flash indoors its auto mode changed to iso800 and smaller resolution gives a photo that is just noise. Flash inconsistent even when forced on, only worked 1 in 4 times and varied outputs. Setting to manual mode camera has a mind of its own and is still useless.
Summary: Es war Liebe auf den 1. Blick. Sie war bildschön, klein, griffig, handlich, kurzum :sie ließ mein Herz sofort höher schlagen Schade, es hätte eine sehr lange Freundschaft werden sollen. Für immer? Nein, was ist schon für immer? Doch schon nach 3 Monaten war es mit der Liebe vorbei. Ohne einen Mucks hat sie mich eiskalt von einer zur anderen Sekunde abserviert. Jetzt bin ich auf der Suche nach einer neuen Liebe, treu und zuverlässig und hoffentlich für längere Zeit.
