Excerpt: Paying a little bit more than for a typical point-and-shoot camera, I have been somewhat disappointed with the Fujifilm S1800. There are more options with this camera than with cheaper models and brands, however, the pictures taken do not seem to be any better than those taken with my previous (significantly cheaper) camera. I have noticed this especially in situations with lower lighting.
Excerpt: I finally bought this camera after spending what seemed like weeks trying to determine whether it was worth. I have seen a lot of fashion bloggers using Canon cameras, and I thought well I'm just a beginner, I have no clue how to work a sophisticated camera, let me start off with a less expensive camera and work my way up. So I landed on the Fuji Finepix S1800.
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: 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.
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...
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).
Summary: Idependientemente del modo que le pongas, sea automático o en algunas de sus formas intentando controlar la apertura o velocidad de obturación, los colores quedan "apastelados". El jpeg resta mucho a la calidad de imagen.
Summary: Hatte noch nicht viel Zeit mich mit der Kamera zu beschäftigen. Eines kann ich jedoch schon sagen. Bei der Einstellung (Filmen) und dessen Ausführung mußt ich leider feststellen das die Zumgeräusche doch sehr laut beim Abspielen des Films in den Fordergrund rücken. Mit freundlichen Grüßen H.L..
