Excerpt: I only bought this because my previous Canon Powershot A710 is suffered a terminal drop :-( Bad decision: This camera needs a lot of light to focus properly and then does so slowly. Indoors, focusing speeds and low-light performance are terrible. It is really unusable for me. I do not enjoy using it at all and am going to dump it in the bay asap.
Summary: The camera is right for me in every way. This is my first pezozerkalny apparatus. Image quality is excellent, while photographing mostly indoors. The flash is very strong, no complicated setup and clear, the camera is easy and comfortable to hold. I am happy with the purchase.
Summary: I had purchased this camera at a Wal-mart and had to send it in for repair once during the 1 yr warranty after the camera was eating batteries, and freezing. When I got it back, it worked for a little while (we used the camera very little) but shortly after the 1 yr warranty was up, the same problem started happening again. I thought that Fuji was a good brand, but we were not lucky with this camera at all. When it worked, the pics were good.
Summary: Background: I am no professional camera person, but I love to take pictures, especially scenery and interesting shots. I bought this camera in replacement of a Canon A520 that I have had for several years. I liked the Canon, except for the lense cover that wouldn't open from the start (I'd have to flick it open with my fingernail). One time it fell and the focus got stuck.
Summary: I just love this camera. I have a powershot that was 7MP and trust me it is good but not that good with the flasher. I bought this camera for some time now and just didn't have the time to review on it. I really need a new camera to catch up with the new tend of MP. Done alot of research and read alot of review. Walmart has some great package and price on camera so I bought this one.
Summary: What a great camera!!! Me and my wife had been talking about getting a digital camera for a while but money has been tight. And I didn't want some cheap compact digital. We had one of those at one time and we both hated it. So for Christmas we received a $200 Wal-Mart gift card so we checked to see what they had on line. And for a $169 with all it was offering, this camera couldn't be beat.
Summary: I love this camera. Take the time to read the owners manual and practice using different settings. This camera takes great pictures, and has features of much more expensive cameras. Why spend more? My only complaint is the Fuji Finepix software. I didn't like it years ago when I bought my first Fuji camera, and I still don't like it. I wonder if I can just delete the program and use Windows to deal with my photos???
