Excerpt: After my son was born, I decided to buy a better quality digital camera than the 5 year old point and shoot that I had been using. At the same time, I wanted something user friendly, without too many confusing bells and whistles. After much research, I decided on …
Excerpt: I have this camera for about 1 year. It shot some great photos with good ilumination. Problems: The camera after some time started to shutdown when I'm recording my videos, the camera doesn't focus where I want to. The low light performance is awful.
Summary: I got this camera to replace a Nikon L100 that went bad. Compared to the Nikon its obvious the quality on the L100 is superior. The zoom is almost identical L100=15x vs the s1800=18x which is strange to say the least.

Summary: I've been looking for a camera for months now, so when given the opportunity to review this Fujifilm FinePix S1800, I jumped at the chance.

Summary: If you are one of those digital camera users who want some of the high end features of an SLR without the big price tag this might be right for you. It is so new hardly anyone knows it is slowly coming out on the market. Got mine at a special launch on HSN.
Summary: Fuji Film has done a wonderful job with this camera. From the time I opened the box, read the manual, took some test shots and was viewing them on my computer (I didn't install the supplied cd for picture viewing direct from the camera) approx 30 minutes went by. Camera setup is a breeze.
