Summary: Totally disappointed. My little Sanyo $75 job takes better, more focused pics in auto mode. Taking pics of flowers in bright sunlight using the Macro mode gives me 50% black pics, and the rest are unusable. Maybe I just got a lemon, but I'm not taking a chance and swapping it for another.
Summary: This was a great camera. Several of us at work all bought it at the same time. We were all so impressed with it we talked the boss into buying one for use at work. Within weeks the work one started to play up (pic storage problems), but we suspect it was due to poor quality batteries.
Pros: Once you learn how to take them, this camera produces awesome panoramic shots. I've used it at the Grand Canyon, Baja Mexico, and Australia's east coast, and taken quite a few shots worth enlarging to poster size. Until it died I had been very happy with the quality of the pictures it takes.
Cons: Well, it died after less than 3 months. Enough said. One other con (more a Newegg.com one) is that it's only covered for 30 days. With all the specials around for xmas I'd buy this camera somewhere else that offers a decent warranty. I'm in the process of contact Fujifilm to get their thoughts, b...
Summary: Well, the price is good but performance is spotty and very problematic. You get less than what you paid for. Aggravation is pretty costly. When it works (half of the time) it's pretty good. Lots of features but not enough for a pro and for "normal folks" the auto mode is poor.
Summary: This is my honest review. I have owned this camera for a few years now.... After only a few months owning it I had to send it back for repairs over a "zoom error", Jessops kindly sent it away and fixed it under my warranty.
Summary: It's a good camera for someone who doesn't want to go into photography, It's a good first camera for someone who wants slightly higher quality, but if I were you I just wouldn't bother, go for a Nikon or a Canon. You can get something much better for the same price.
Summary: Reading some of the reviews makes me wonder if I have the same camera. The picture quality of this camera on shots taken outside is truly dreadful and quite frankly shameful. The colour quality is drab, bright colours are over exposed, actually looks artifical as if they have been altered on adobe...

Excerpt: When i first purchased the camera it seemed excellent and the picture quality was very good. As soon as i took the camera on holiday where i was taking a considrable amount of shots you realise that its not that good at all. The battery seems to go flat very quickly, i was buying a pack a day.
Summary: J'ai acheté ce bridge fujifilm il y a voilà deux ans , et je suis très mécontent de l'appareil . Les photos ,malgré un réglage adéquate de l'appareil , sont flou , un grain trop prononcé . Peu de couleur . Un flash médiocre , et un zoom qui lui est par contre bien .
