Summary: I purchased this camera as a Christmas gift for my husband. He only took about 20 pictures when the lens wouldn't retract and an error message appeared. We called Fuji and they advised to turn it off, remove the batteries and let the camera sit for 24 hours in the hopes that it would reset itself.
Summary: It has not been a year, and this camera is not working properly. The lens will not extend and the camera errors out. I am currently making a attempt to see if it is a warranty or something so I can have it replaced. It has not been dropped or wet or anything, it just started malfunctioning.
Summary: I really wish I'd read the negative reviews about this camera before purchasing it. I got the camera, got it out of the box, set it up, took about 4 test shots then stuck it in my bag to take to a yearly event I attend. When I got there I took it out of my bag and it simply wouldn't work.
Summary: I have updated this review on the strength (!) of the other one star reviews this camera has been given. There seems to be little doubt that you have a good chance of buying a defective camera.
Summary: i bought this camera as a replacement for my broken finepix 600 ,i wish i hadnt the pictures are terrible no matter what settings i tried,they are worse than a cheap mobile phone .this camera is going back for a refund
Summary: worst camera ever bought sent this back as it was absolutly useless was very plastic and cheap looking couldnt even load memory card it wouldnt accept it stay away from this product waste of hard earned cash
1 minute of enjoyment - tears for the rest of Christmas Day...
25 December 2012
Summary: Sadly not allowed to give no stars as the camera appears to suffer from a design fault in that it takes one or two pictures and then the zoom fails/jams... Reading other reviews, which I wish I d done more thoroughly prior to purchase, this seems to be a common failing.
Summary: Settings always failing and finally stopped working after 14 months..not covered by warranty and Picsio?Fujifilm want £60 service charge . My camera is now held ransom having returned it , was told it was covered. NOT HAPPY. Offered upgrade..cheapest similar..£350 !!
