Summary: A great camera! I am a professional of more than 40 years and have owned Nikons, Hasselblads, Rolleiflexes,Minoltas, Pentax, etc. This camera can compete with any of the above and at much less cost, and with ONE lense! In fact, I liked it so much I turned around and bought an even later updated model ten (10) days later! Fuji is coming out with the best Bridge cameraas available today with all the functions needed/required by most professionals today.
Summary: I bought this for my wife who works in the Newspaper industry designing classified ads and doing special projects. She loves the camera. Big enough to do high quality photo's, but small enough to not be offensive to carry in her purse. Perfect. But use lithium batteries.
Summary: I love this camera. I Ghosts Hunt and this works wonderful for what I am using it for. It takes great pictures. I was looking for a full spectrum camera. For the money this was the best buy that I found on the internet.
Summary: This camera is fantastic for those who have never known anything other than your cheap, standard 'point and shoot' cameras that don't allow for any customization. This camera offers all of your standard 'point and shoot' options, but it also offers so much more so for those who want to learn this is a great (and affordable) way to do so.
