Summary: I am a BPO Photographer and I ordered this camera because my Kodak EasyShare did not have a wide enough lens angle. I think that this camera is a good buy used or new if you are looking for a wide angle lens. The many features allows me to expand on the types of photographs I shoot.
Summary: I have been around Photography about 45yrs. and have had allot of excelent equipment(Nikon)so I feel qualifyed to make these comments. I say that honestly not arrogantly. I was looking for a camera that had the capability to do what I require of it without allot of weight to carry around.
Fuji FinePix S4000 is a great middle of the road camera
28 January 2012
Summary: I bought this camera a few months ago and am pleased with the results. It is a great little camera for the price but does not replace my SLR for special trips and artsy shots. The 14 mega pixel photo size gives sharp photos, overall. (Use the largest file setting for this sharpness.
Summary: I bought this camera from Amazon in Big Value Inc. The camera is in good value with the bundle kit where the camera has one year warranty of the product company. It is not as big as the SLR cameras. So it is somehow portable and suitable for travelling.

Excerpt: before i bought this camera i had to look for a lot of review , and i would say i write an email to the fuji guys , questions about this product but luckily they had answer all the questions i asked , so i was convince to buy this product.
Summary: This camera is a good starting point for learning digital photography and the modern DSLR. It can be simple or complicated, manual or automatic. If you take the the time to read the manual (going over all the options) you will discover it is a very versatile camera.
Excerpt: I was initially very concerned about the lack of physical aperture. In the 4000 the aperture is actually ND filters to control the light depending on shutter speed. But if you go into the physics of this, the small sensor (1/2.3", CCD) and small format mean that diffraction will start affecting the...
Summary: Due to some of the negative reviews, I was reluctant to buy the S4000 camera. However, the good reviews and my previous experience with Fuji (S7000 & A600), I decided to buy it. At first, I had some of the problems as previous reviewers.
Excerpt: I love night photos with long exposure or high sensibility...and this camera works very well at ISO 400/800 with proper light and without flash. In other conditions like a sunny day, indoor photos (with or without flash) it's simply perfect! Image stabilizer works very well also with super zoom!
