Summary: I already had a Fujifilm Finepix S1500, but the longer zoom range and higher resolution of the S2800HD seemed to make it a better choice for some specific tasks we had in mind; chief among them was taking pictures of small items for posting on the website.
Summary: Camera is overall a good product, but there are only two F-stops available F3.1 and F5.6 - frustrating. The camera has a lag of 2seconds before it focuses and then you can take the picture. The rest of the camera is great to use.
Summary: I compare this camera with previous (model Fujifilm S2550HD) - are almoust same, except resolution (14Mpix). What missing in S2800HD? Is not possible to set different aspect ratio than 4:3. Why? The model S2550HD have 4:3, 3:2, 16:9. If I forget this = good rate price/performance.
Summary: I really expected more from this camera, after reading some comments and the presentation in Fuji's site. But all I got is a pretty looking small digital camera, with just decent resolution and an 18x Zoom with zero focus, which makes this feature useless.
Summary: The S2800HD does a fair job of photography. I was somewhat disappointed to see my wife's CoolPix do a lot better job. I use the S2800HD has a quick point and shoot with some quick up scale attributes. However, to be 14 MP it left a lot to be desired.
Summary: HD video captures as an Easy to edit AVI in premiere and windows movie maker. camera is noisy, you need to use separate audio recorder for this. Great zoom. a bit plasticky compared to my old Fuji bridge camera. I had to have a replacement as the first one was faulty..
