Summary: S2000HD Not recommended
Pros: Full featured: HD video, 15x zoom, wide angle., Good build feel and weight., Large LCD., Good grip position and overall ergo design., Good IQ and saturated colors in bright light.
Cons: Inconsistent focus, esp. in video mode and at long zoom., Purple streaks appear on LCD in bright light - these don't appear in still shots, but do sometimes appear on videos., Overall video quality not very good despite HD resolution., Slow startup., Tends to overexpose highlights., Lot of noise in low light., Menu required for some common functions (such as self timer;) where others have buttons., Below average weather resistance and overall sturdiness/reliability. (...
Summary: For the money, I really expected more from this camera. Even my tiny Nikon micro-handheld camera goes down to an f3.3; and this Fuji with the nice big lens only goes down to 3.5? C'mon. Most superzoom cameras these days go down to f2.8, which provides much better image quality by allowing lower ISO and faster shutter speeds. The lack of adjustablity in the aperature is disappointing; you really can only choose either a 3.5 or 7.0 (nothing in between).
Summary: Could not hold camera steady enough to take shot even with stabilizer enabled. Returned this and purchased a Canon SX10 IS which didn't have any problem with stabilization on same shots. Canon does not have HD but I already have a Flip Minio so I didn't need the HD function. Overall the Fuji pictures were good quality as long as you didn't use the zoom feature or shoot close ups that needed stabilization.
Vast amount of features - but dubious picture quality

Summary: Having owned a Fuji F602 Zoom for many years, I was looking forward to receiving this gift from my wife. The 602 image quality (bearing in mind it is a 3MP camera) was fantastic producing clear precise images across a range of speeds and apertures. Its 'auto' setting also produced excellent results. So it came as a surprize when I downloaded my first images from the 2000HD that they all appeared blurred - and those taken using the integral flash were all overexposed.
Summary: I read all the other reviews at Amazon for this camera and not one mentioned the time delay from when you press the shutter to when the camers actually captures the picture, truely awuful. I bought it to take pictures of my 2 year old daughter and have taken about 100 pictures, i will be lucky if i have 5 decent pictures as the camera is just not quick enough to 'capture the moment'
Summary: Much about this camera is great, but it is seriously flawed by its inaccuracy in handling reds - seem to come out as pink. Never had a similar problem with any of the many other digital cameras I've owned and used over the years. Astonished that you can buy in camera in 2009 with such a significant shortcoming.
Summary: This camera looks good and is easy to use. It's got some great functions - such as removal of red-eye and zooming whiling videoing - great fun! Only problem is the picture quality in photos - very poor (not sharp and overexposed on AUTO) and not a patch on my 'old' Fuji Finepix S7000 which I have had for 3 years and have been very happy with it. I'm afraid to say I had to send the 'new' camera back and I'm now looking again for a replacement for my S7000.
Summary: Efectivamente las rayas azules si aparecen en los vídeos, fuji tiene a disponible un parche para la cámara, pero el parche no soluciono el problema. si alguien tiene una solución, por favor dela a conocer.
Summary: Acabé vendiendo esta camera después de un año. Hice muchas fotos con ella. Los primeros 50 los hice en una fiesta de fin de año en modo escena, eran casi todos para tirar. Después aprendí a utilizar los modos manuales y la cosa mejoró bastante, pero requiere mucho tiempo configurar todo el tiempo la camera. Cosas buenas: +Buen Zoom con buen estabilizador. +Controles completamente manuales. Cosas que no me gustan: -Las fotos en modo Escena o automático son malas.
Pros: Buen Zoom, controles manuales
Cons: Mala calidad de imagen sobre todo con poca luz, distorsión cromática
Un 8 para la cámara. Un 0 para el servicio técnico

Summary: La cámara bien, la tengo y en relación al precio ofrece fotos de buena calidad incluso en condiciones de poca luz . Tiene un gran zoom y vídeos HD bastante aceptables. Lo negativo de Fuji según mi experiencia es el servicio técnico. Si acudes al servicio técnico pasado el año pero dentro de los dos años de garantía que tienen todos los productos en España no te lo arreglan porque dicen que la garantía solo es un año y por tanto ya pasó.
Pros: Buena calidad fotos y vídeos en comparación al precio
