Excerpt: The camera is compact, light and very handy. The auto-focus requires lots hard work since it confined to backdrop variations. The 18x optical zoom is awesome for shooting still objects but if you are planning to take pictures of a sports even or birds it is rather slow.The viewfinder is extremely good. The camera is extremely user friendly with a good power management. A pack of duracell alkaline batteries could give you 100 to 150 shots if you are using flash.
"Good camera for the money; but rather spend more."

Pros: Excellent features but on first try the link to Youtube failed. It kept saying my username and password were incorrect even though I could log directly into Youtube, just not through Fujifilm's software.
Cons: NOISE - very bad when shooting movies. The location of the mic allowed every single sway of the camera lens to be picked up. There is no external jack for a remote mic.
Excerpt: At first glance, the Fujifilm Finepix S2950 is really a very well designed compact superzoom. It sports a nice to hold DSLR-esque body which is also nicely compact in frame. Upon using it, one will find a considerably user-friendly interface which is unfortunately laggy at times. As for taking pictures, the camera is capable of taking good shots, but there is a big question mark over the success rate because it does have its problems such as slow/inconsistent auto-focus,...
It suits the needs of a casual photographer that wants a little extra.

Summary: I bought this camera to take with me on holidays. I will not be happy if it is lost but at this price I'm sure I will be over it in a week or so. You can get some nice quality shots under the right conditions. Pictures come out looking smooth most of the time but some detail is missed. Well it is OK as far as digital cameras go but definitely a low end DSLR camera.
Summary: Mit dieser Camera habe ich so meine Erfahrungen gemacht,zunächst mal möchte ich sagen,dass Fujifilm im Großen und Ganzen meiner Meinung nach qualitativ sehr hochwertig ist,jedoch was die Bedienung und Steuerung des Apparats angeht eher zu wünschen übrig lässt! Die Bilder,die man mit dieser Camera machen sind allerdings wirklich gestochen scharf und farblich 1A wenn man mich fragt.
