Summary: I loved this camera from the time I got it. It has great settings and takes very good pictures and love the zoom. Also good videos. My baby girl grabbed mine with a wet sandy hand and I just ordered the exact same one.
Summary: I wanted to get a new camera for Christmas, because my old one had a slow zoom. I travel a lot and I love taking pictures. The zoom was so slow on that one. On this camera, it takes a few seconds and you can get a full frame shot of a person's nose even though he's across the room from you. I may not be using the camera for that, but for traveling and taking pictures of the sights, it's great! It doesn't have many different ways you can take the photo.
Summary: OK, I've read the reviews on this camera in Consumer Reports and on-line. It gets middle of the road scores but you have to ask yourself this: what do I want in a compact camera? I find the size of the camera very convenient but the features are excellent. The zoom is great and the video is crisp. The flash photos do come out a bit dark...I'll say that much, but shooting pictures using ambient lighting, even at night, works very well.
Summary: The auto mode indoors seems to be inconsistent in low light. The neat thing with this camera is the dial has sp1 and sp2 you can program from 13 different programs. I had good luck using the nighttime mode indoors in lower light and the colors and contrast seem more accurate. The dial has a scene recognition auto mode and a auto mode, again using it indoors seemed pretty inconsistent in lower light.
Summary: I would suggest that the manual be downloaded for this camera. It has lots of features and the manual that comes in the box is way too basic. I am very impressed with this camera for outside pictures only. Indoor shots are grainy and are a terrible disappoint. The camera is quick in terms of recycling for the next picture and that is a positive!
Summary: This is my 4th fugi digital camera. Just as easy to use with great quality photos. I have two toddlers and take a ton of pics. they are usually perfectly focuses. I love the natural/flash setting that takes the photo in natural light and with flash in succession. Then you can pick which one you like best. I love this camera just as much as i loved the other ones.
Summary: Length:: 0:27 Mins Sample HD movie taken in Las Vegas using this camera. Amazing quality for the money. Fuji packs 12 MP with 10x zoom into a point and shoot with HD movie mode. The night pictures are second to none, even without a tripod. You cannot go wrong by purchasing this camera.
Summary: I bought this camera yesterday to sneak into a concert. I worked awesome. The size is small, and since I already own another FinePix camera, the buttons and options were familiar. Needless to say I got some incredible photos, and a great video as well. Anyone who wants a compact camera, with great photo quality, this is the camera for you ! I got mine at Target, but it was because I needed it yesterday, and they had the best price, same as Amazon.
