Summary: I was looking for an affordable digital camera. This one has one pin broken in one memory slot but there are 2 of them so it' is not the matter. I was lucky to buy this camera with a very right price. The product technically obsolete but the quality of the pictures is excellent.
Summary: I own 4 S3s & would love to give them up as I have 3 Nikon bodies that are probably better cameras. But I have used Fuji's my entire digital career & feel they have been a true extension of my arm.
Summary: I've had the Fuji FinePix S3 Pro for several years, and just bought my second one. It's a great camera for someone who knows photography. It uses the Nikon F-Mount for lenses, which opens up worlds of possibilities.
Summary: O.K. It is slow in comparison to 2012 models, but BUT everything else about it is still first rate - resolution, tone, reliability. And it doesn't eat up pc memory yet still delivers large print quality.
Summary: I love this dslr. I can use all my Nikon equipment and the prices are great and falling all the time. I have the S2 pro and this is my second S3. simple controls and settings. read the manual and you are good to go
great camera for pro or amateur or budding pro, for $ nothing beats Fuji

Summary: I had an s2 for years (is was stolen) and an s3. For the money, there is absolutely no reason not to buy this camera. And it's interface is easier to use than Nikon, which I have been shooting for years.
Slightly old camera but no problem to use. I could save money.

Summary: I was a Fujifilm Finepix S2 pro user. I purchased S3 pro for replacement. There are no problem now. I like Fuji's CCD and I can use my Nikon lens. And I prefer AA battery operation. So S3 pro is the best choice.
Summary: These Fuji DSLRs shine in the IQ department. Its sensor technology was ahead of their time. I bought this in 2009 for less than $400, and it's still kicking now. I use it mostly for landscapes, which I don't need the speed.
