Summary: Very disappointing. This is my 4th Fuji cameras - I bought it because I liked the previous three. Have an S5000. Liked it a lot, but it was slow to start and I wanted more MP and optical zoom capability. Bottom Line: It doesn't take very good pictures. I've tried all image qualities and conditions.
Great pictures and features for a low budget price.

Summary: I needed a great camera to take pictures of Jewelry. I got this today and was floored how well it took the pictures. I was told I needed a SLR with macro lens to get the close up pictures I needed. I did not have a $1000 in my budget so I started to research other options.

Summary: Arrived on time and as decribed. It has more bells and whistles than I really needed, but it's easy to use and takes great pics. I use manual settings and have been able to capture some fantastic images. The macro feature takes killer close up images and the zoom is fantastic as well.
Summary: I am a camera nut, i like to take pictures even though i am just an amateur, thats why this camera works for me, the one great thing i really like in this camera, is that if the subject should move, you still get the shot.
Summary: Having used advanced model SLR cameras for more than twenty years, I was finally dragged kicking and screaming into the world of digital photography. Surprise! The model S4500 has made the transition practically painless.
Takes great pictures, but the zoom leaves much to be desired

Summary: I got this camera as a birthday gift, and was very excited to see that it advertises a serious zoom! But, upon actually trying to use the zoom- literally, right as I try to zoom even a fraction- it immediately becomes a blur.
