Summary: I had purchased this camera for a concert that I went to last month. The zoom was working perfectly than my last malfunctioning camera I had 2 years ago. I had taken alot of photos with & it was amazing. I was also pleased on how fast it came in the mail. I like this camera so much that I can't get my hands off of it.
Summary: I purposely waited before reviewing this camera. The camera has nice functionality and ease of use. I have not had lens cap issues as others have mentioned in their reviews. I did however find some focusing issues. If this camera has it, I have not found a manual focus. Only the automatic but you can trick the focus with a halfway press of the shutter button. The zoom motor is quite fast. That makes it difficult to get the precise zoom level easily but it is possible.
Summary: PROS: Camera is great for all needs. Easy to use and software friendly. Light and sturdy with a grip makes taking pictures more ergonomic. Plenty of functions to choose from for that perfect picture. SLR Camera feel and quality CONS: won my Camera for $170 with free shipping....Went to a Walmart a few days after receiving it and saw the same Camera for only $210..
Excerpt: This is probably the best camera for its price. Loaded with a powerful flash. The image stabilization works wonders. Pictures taken in the "N" mode captures good quality low-light images. HD quality video exceeds expectations. Outstanding zoom and not very complicated. All in all, a well constructed well featured decent camera. and it's cheaper than cameras with the same features.
Summary: I love this camera. I have read the previous reviews as well. Yes, the lens cap is a little cheap but it stays on. Yes, you do see lines when aiming to direct light but the images are wonderful. I was a little dissappointed at first (for about an hour) when I first started taking pictures but after I spent that first evening reading the manual and playing with the various settings (about 1.5 hours) I am now in love with it.
Summary: So far so good with this camera. I'm still learning about it. Colors are vibrant & I have taken some pretty amazing shots with it. As mentioned in another review there are sometimes purple smears on the LCD screen when the camera is pointed at a very bright light. I don't know where he got his info that this is a camera defect but I looked this up on Fuji's website and here is what it said: When composing an image, vertical stripes appear on the viewfinder and LCD...
