Summary: Hello friends, I originally bought this camera to replace a very dinky $50 digital camera two years ago when I needed a good camera to take quality pictures while studying abroad. Let me tell you, It was worth every penny.
Summary: Two parts to this review the product itself and then my experience buying it. First, the camera itself is great for a "point and shoot" camera. I bought this as a present for my wife and she loves it. It takes good crisp photos and the camera functions well.
Summary: Everything about this camera is great, especially for ease of use. Great macro capability, and it captures color exquisitely. To get REALLY good low light photos, you'll need to go to manual mode however, but the learning curve for this is not bad.
Summary: I researched many cameras before going on our trip to Colorado and Yellowstone National park this past September. Read many good reviews of this camera, and the price was right. Came home with some beautiful photos that look professional. The automatic setting works great, captures great detail.
Summary: The specs on this camera are very impressive, starting with a 26X zoom, huge 3 inch LCD, a viewfinder and lots of interesting touches, like the automatic panarama feature, which stitches three images together inside the camera to create great panarama shots.
Summary: I've owned this Fuji S4300 for a few months now and have come to love it's features and overlook any shortcomings. The #1 feature I absolutely love is, it has a VIEWFINDER. I was missing this feature from all my recent point & shoot cameras.
