  • 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.

Decent Camera, Good Value

K. Salinger, MSN, FNP, RN AHN-BC, Amazon

  • Summary: My husband was surprised by how small and light this camera was when he took it out of the box. For some this might be a positive, but he found it a little small to hold comfortably in his hands and with not enough weight for it to feel steady. He was looking for an alternative camera to his Canon Powershot point-and-shoot camera which he uses for vacations... basically a home use camera that he didn't have to worry about putting in his pocket.

A lot of fluff

  • Summary: The rechargable batteries & charger are great. The memory card reader is wonderful. The other stuff went to storage. I'm keeping out the tripod, but in 4 months I haven't needed a four inch tripod. Now I would find a good card reader & skip the rest.

A Quirky Camera

  • Summary: Great price, but quirky. Poor metering and few aperture settings make it hard to recommend. Reasonably good pictures after experimentation.
  • Pros: low price; decent feature set; panorama mode
  • Cons: poor metering, few aperture settings

Decent Camera - For the Money

StevieSnacks, Amazon
7 September 2010
  • Summary: Overall, not a bad purchase for the money. Key phrase: "FOR THE MONEY". The camera has some nice features and is really easy to use. It felt comfortable in my hands and the battery life was great compared to some other inexpensive cameras I've owned. The battery/lense cover are cheapies. One wrong move and you could easily render this camera useless if you break the battery door. So - aside from the cheap parts (what do you expect out of a $170 camera?

An Adequate, But Flawed Low Priced "Super Zoom" Camera

Alan Houston, Amazon
6 July 2010
  • Summary: At a price of $120 to $150, the S1800, with its 28mm to 500mm zoom lens and numerous manual control options, may provide the most "bang for the buck" of any digital "super zoom" camera. The S1800 produces photos that vary wildly in quality when using its "auto" modes, due to auto mode selecting high ISO levels, low shutter speeds, and the wrong color balance.

Pretty good all-rounder BUT there are issues

Miss K, Amazon

  • Summary: OK, a bit of backstory: I've had this camera for 5 months now. Last year, convinced I needed a DSLR (and after months of research), I actually purchased the Canon 550D - it was a pretty cool camera that took good pictures. I found however, it was just too bulky for me to carry around and it just stayed in the box, at home.

S1800 - "Modified rapture" [to quote G&S].

Mr. E. I. Warren "ED W", Amazon
16 February 2011
  • Summary: I admit I also own a DSLR camera, but I travel on business where it's too bulky for the luggage. I leapt at the S1800 as it seemed so well equipped at a very good price. It went to South Africa with me and also did a safari there, then to Turkey with plenty of sights to capture, into the Welsh hills on a sunny day and then an indoor social gathering. At its best the zoom is super [one great, clear shot of the distant Snowdon massif...

Fuji s1800

Amazon Customer, Amazon
18 January 2011
  • Summary: Good camera spoilt by a horrid eye level finder and a noisy zoom that is picked up by the mike. Also for some reason my camera did not have printed instructions in English. Plus points is that is light and compact (compared to my Fuji S9600) and I wanted a lighter camera - with view finder - for travel. The LCD screen is brilliant (but not in sunlight).
