Summary: We bought this as a replacement for the family digital camera that was old and outdated.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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
Summary: I purchased one of the JZ300`s less than 16 weeks ago, i have used it about 10 times (totalling about 200 pics and about an hour of HD 710p video) The quality of the pictures in midday daylight were ok, but any pics taken inside look worse than a cell phone 2mp camera.
