Excerpt: I have owned quite a few Fuji cameras over the years. So when I saw this little beauty I have to take the leap. The size is perfect for carring around and not as heavy as some of past years models. This camera has a great optical zoom. You are able to get close up pitures nice and tight. The construction on this unit seems to be very solid and will last for years.
Excerpt: My husband bought this camera for me after my other camera died right before our trip to Disney World. I was a little nervous since it seemed to boast a lot of great features, yet cost very little. I quickly read through the manual on the way hoping to learn how to use it in time. It was absolutely perfect! One feature I feel is lacking on many other cameras is a great zoom. This one has 18x optical zoom which is phenomenal!
Excerpt: When I first bought the camera a little over two months ago I was very impressed with the quality of the pictures.The manual was very helpful in learning how to operate this camera. The only downfall that I've had with it, is that after the first two times of uploading pictures to the camera through the USB cord, it won't allow me to do that now. Every time I try it tells me that there are no new pictures or videos found on this device.
The Fujifilm S1800 is a budget camera with lots of greafeatures.

Excerpt: The Fujifilm Finepix S1800 is a so-called megazoom bridge camera, because it has an enormous 18x optical zoom and looks like a DSLR (albeit a little smaller). The main thing that people are concerned with is the image quality, and I have to say that the Fujifilm Finepix S1800 does not disappoint for day shots and wide landscape shots.
Excerpt: I am an avid photographer and recieved this camera as a Christmas gift from my parents. So far, I have really enjoyed it. Pros: user friendly, takes high quality pictures (good enough to make large poster prints), 18x optical zoom, large lcd screen, great features like panorama shots, great for beginners or experienced photographers, good price Cons: sd card is in battery compartment (so you have to open the battery compartment everytime you want to take the card out),...
Summary: If you are new to photography or want a good point-and-shoot camera that is easy to operate and takes really good pictures, then this is the camera for you. This would be a wonderful camera for an absolute beginner because as another reviewer pointed out, it is really hard to take a bad picture with this camera.
Summary: So far I really like this camera. I have not finished reading the manual but the basic functions were pretty easy to understand. Sometimes it does not snap as fast as I want it to...I may need to read up on that. I have an infant and sometimes I want to capture quick actions and I miss them due to the delay. Other than that I am having lots of fun with my camera.
