Summary: I've owned this camera for about 3 years now. It is an overall nice little starter camera, takes decent pictures for a point and shoot. The video quality could be better ..... and it's not very good at taking pictures in low light situations (for example: a child's school concert where you're sitting in the middle of the auditorium, pictures are very blurry when you try to focus up on the group).
Summary: I really liked this camera but it just didn't last like it should have. After about a month it developed a dead pixel on the viewscreen. Within three months half the screen had gone black making it difficult to see exactly what the picture looks like. After about a year the rubber came off the lens. I'm not sure precisely how long it will continue to function after this (perhaps the damage is mostly cosmetic) but I feel like the camera is on its last legs.
Summary: I asked the seller a product question, took sometime to reply and referred me to contact the manufacturer. The camera charger could be a little tricky; make sure to plug it in the right dimensional area.
Summary: I upgraded to this camera because of the 10x zoom feature. The manual which had to be printed did not give much information as to taking photos at a distance inside (i.e., concerts). I'm working this one out on my own. They could upgrade the instruction manual. Thus far, the close up photos have been great.
Summary: I was expecting so much more from a Fuji! The photo quality was a huge disappointment. Outdoor photos were average. Indoor pictures were terrible..grainy, mottled, dull color and not crisp. The only setting that I could get good pictures in was the 10x zoom, or the macro! Also, good video. If you are looking for a camera that will take easy, quick snapshots on an auto setting that produces clear, crisp shots...this is NOT it!
Love the size but not the perfect all around camera

Summary: If you're looking for a camera that does it all, this might not be the camera for you. If you're looking for a low budget, beginner or second camera with features and zoom in a compact size, I would definitely recommend this one, as long as you know its limitations. To the positive. This is definitely a pocket compact: small, weighing just 5.5 oz, it slips easily into purse or pocket. It's also a fast P&S.
Summary: HD video is exellent in daylight,nightime is a bit grainy.Daylight pics are also very good ,but grainy at lower light levels ,however there are different tweaks and settings that can improve these.I mainly use this camera in daylight and use a couple of other cameras for low light photography. I use 32 gig sd card in this camera as i shoot a lot of hd video. Also the flash has a very short range for party /evening pics etc ,but a good overall camera for the price.
