Summary: I don't know why there is so much negativity about this camera. I for one love this camera. I bought it to bring with me ever where. It's compact and easy to use. It has lots of features that are on my Fujifilm Finepix S1800 - I know it does not zoom far, but for what it is and what most people will use it for, it's great.
Summary: There must be a bad batch, but I bought one, and it would only turn on when plugged into the wall. As soon as it was unplugged it turned off. Returned and exchanged it for another one, and same problem. Very frustrating, and I wont be trying a fuji again anytime soon.
Summary: WOW! Was skeptical at first--a 16MP digital camera and video maker for under $50 PLUS a memory card! Took a chance and ordered this without much investigation or review--just knowing the reputation of Fujifilm in the digital camera industry and, boy, I was not disappointed! This camera does it all, and does it in a compact unit that's easily stored in my shirt or pants pocket.
Summary: I just bought this camera a month ago. I used it once and am already experiencing a problem. I used this camera over the weekend and last night sat down to review the pix. I was in the process of deleting some and zooming in on others to get a closer look at them. At one point on zooming in it froze. I tried shutting it off, but that didn't work, so I pulled the battery. It reset itself after that action.
