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. She hasn't played around with all the features yet but she is happy so I'm good with that.
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. The mini manual supplied will get you started well, but I recommend downloading the PDF manual for complete and excellent instruction on all aspects of use. You'll LOVE the panorama function!
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. Easy to use. Love it.
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. I was getting sick and tired of trying to get a quick picture, only to see my eye looking back at me in the LCD screen.
Summary: Perfect size, abundant features, easy to use. What more could you ask for in a compact camera.I reccomend this camera for anyone looking for a point and shoot with more capability and control than the pocket point and shoot category.
Summary: It's a good thing I found the manual on line! This is a great camera and I love it but it's complicated! I like the eye level viewfinder for sunny days and the fact it's rubber coated so I can wear my glasses when looking thru it.
well worth the money. much more powerful than little cameras.

Summary: I LOVE this camera! It's got a little weight to it, which (for me) was exactly what I wanted. Works great and it's the perfect size, as well. It's a good basic, beginners camera. Nothing flashy or fancy about this, but at the same time, it has some nice features. What I'm saying is, it's perfect for the amateur or beginner ~ or someone like me, who likes to take just regular pictures, here and there! I highly recommend it.
