Summary: We bought this as a replacement for the family digital camera that was old and outdated. This one did not last very long at all. Granted we do have 2 little guys, but the screen on this quit working all together within 6 months. It was still taking picture, you just had to download the SD card to see them. Well that lasted maybe a month and then everything started coming up white.
Summary: I purchased the Fuji JZ300 for the 10x zoom and the HD video with zoom. I purchases this camera to replace my 6 year old but still working and trusty Fuji E550. I quickly realized that the JZ300 has a hard time focusing. Many, if not most of the test pictures I took were out of focus. The ones that were in focus were pretty good, but this was only about 25% of the pictures. Not only that, but you just cannot see the viewing screen in bright sunlight.
Summary: I bought this camera to replace my Casio Exilim camera because sadly it broke after 4 years. I read all the reviews and thought that this Fujifilm camera would be awesome for the price, sadly I was wrong. The quality of the picture is horrible. Almost all the picture I took where out of focus. I took several pictures of the exact same thing like 10 times in order to get one decent shot.
Summary: We bought this camera after careful research but we are so disappointed. The camera was extremely disappointing in low light and photos that were taken w/ the zoom or in low light are unrecognizable. This is probably our 8th digital camera and the worst one we have ever had. Even outside the faces are completely washed out.. Do yourself a favor and buy a Cannon.. I will never buy Fuji again.
Summary: I would have given this camera zero stars if I could!!! This camera takes the worst photos. DO NOT BUY THIS FUJI CAMERA. I seriously thought my camera was defective and corresponded with FUJI representatives via emails as they kept saying the setting I have on the ISO was wrong. It didn't matter what setting it was on - every photo I took indoors was grainy, blurry, and if the flash was used, the photos were still very dark-completely worthless.
"Will never purchase Fuji over canon, nikon, sony again"

Pros: 10x optical zoom and reasonable price was the reason I purchased plus even though I 've never owned Fuji before it was a well known name.
Cons: LCD leaked. This camera was pampered (new toy) compared to my nikon, cannon, and sony ( wanted newer technology and easier to see bigger screen all older camers still work great!) Horrible customer service!!!!
updated 9-20-10 so-so videos, but indoor photos not good at all

Summary: I am not pleased at all with this camera. I bought it to replace an older Fuji camera. That one took great photos, inside and out, but it only took 1 minute long videos. So I decided to get another Fuji camera and this new one takes much longer videos. I assumed the photo quality would be the same, if not better, than the older Fuji camera I own. I was SO WRONG. No matter what setting I use I get grainy indoor photos.
Summary: My Samsung L100 died last week, and despite being over a year old and "just" 8.2 MP, it was a great camera. I got this Fujifilm JZ300 as a replacement, and I can't believe how much worse it is in every department aside from size, compared to the Samsung. I'm no professional photographer, or even a photography student by any means, but I have an eye for detail, and there's no way you can convince me that this is a real 12 MP camera with HD video capabilities.
Summary: appareil de très mauvaise qualité. On ne dirait pas qu'il a 12MP. Il y a constamment un voile sur les photos, quelques soit le mode et la luminosité. Le macro est quasiment impossible à utiliser, trop de flous.
