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.
Not as good as Fuji's Finepix S5200 5.1 MP Digital Camera

Summary: In February 2007 we purchased a Fujifilm Finepix S5200 5.1MP Digital Camera with 10x Optical Zoom . I loved this camera. It was my go to camera for stills and videos. Easy to use and easy to get into, i.e., removing memory card, changing batteries. Then it stopped working earlier this year. So we ordered a new Fuji Finepix because we had liked the original one so much. First the pros: 1. This camera has a wider viewing screen. Love the viewing screen. 2.
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.
Summary: I have been shooting with the camera for about 8 months. I purchased it as a stepping stone to a dSLR, and most often shoot in manual mode. For $200, I think the super zoom lens is pretty awesome. zoom is reasonably quick, and despite the barrel/pincushion distortion at either ends of the zoom range, it does very solidly in the middle range.
Summary: I've had the camera about 3 weeks and it takes great pictures, but impossible to view the screen outside. You have to use the view finder to take a picture. The battery door is very hard to open, and the worse problem is it won't accept a SD memory card unless its a Fugi or San Disc card. I have a HP, and two other brands and none will work in the camera, plus the stupid fact that the internal memory only allows you to take 4 pictures. Ridiculous!!!!
Summary: So i bought this for myself for christmas and let me tell you that this camera is SLOW. My digital camera is faster. This camera operates like a snail. Hd recording is nice and all but taking pictures is very slow. Im not going to lie but it takes nice pictures ! I just hoped it was a faster camera. The pictures i added are pictures i took and edited. Im 15 and this is a easy to use camera.
