Summary: I was sent the S4300 camera instead of the S3400. Because they said they were out of the S3400 even though it showed being in stock. The S4300 only had 26x zoom and a couple other things I didn't really like. So, I had to send it back. Then I had to find and order another camera. I'm sure I would have really liked this camera, if it would have been sent to me(& not out of stock).
Summary: I love this camera!!! Clean crisp pictures come out of this baby! It has many different settings and I like to use them all. I am a big fan of FujiFilm SLR style digital cameras. I always have it somewhere with me. I am an aspiring freelance photographer and am in my beginning stages so this is definitely a great camera for beginners. If you are looking for a decently priced camera, this is a great choice. You won't be disappointed!
Fujifilm Finepix takes excellent quality pics and is highly reliable.

Summary: This is an excellent buy on an all in one zoom camera. The possibilities are endless, from full manual to full automatic with panoramic pics. The pics are crystal clear. I looked at Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Panasonic and Sony. By far this is the best value for the dollar. An incredible low price with features of all the other models at one third of the price. I like the simplicity of using this camera.
A good choice for non moving subjects and normal travel photography

Summary: It has it quarks like any other, the zoom sometimes hesitates and focusing in wide area mode is not the best at low contrast situations. Great focal length range 24mm to 500mm (about) and the panorama feature kicks butt, even handheld. Good choice for record keeping, inspections and real state photography. Processing of flash picture and rearming could be faster, but it is tolerable.
Summary: DOES WHAT IT SAID IT WOULD DO. THE PICS ARE AWESOME FOR THIS 14MP POINT & SHOOT.THE SR-AUTO WORKS REALLY WELL, AND I USE IT WHEN I'M IN DOUBT OF A SCENE IN MANUAL OR S-MMODE. I BOUGHT THIS CAMERA BECAUSE IT IS 14MP WITH 28X ZOOM. MY OLD FINEPIX S2000HD WAS 15X ZOOM 10MP. WHAT I LIKE MOST ABOUT THIS CAMERA IS THE 28X ZOOM AND THE SR-AUTO FOR THOSE IN DOUBT MOMENTS. I WILL BE TELLING MY FRIENDS TO GO OUT AND BUY THIS CAMERA.
Summary: In a field crowded with product somewhat the same, this camera is outstanding from the standpoint of features and price. I am guessing that it will exceed the ability of many users to take advantage of all that this camera offers.
