Summary: I own a DSLR camera and love the manual controls. However, wanted something which was bit more portable but which would still provide images which were better than the usual point and click cameras. This Fuji fits the bill. It comes with an excellent range of DSLR style image controls for aperture, exposure etc.. with a truly excellent 10x optical zoom (which is obviously miles better than the digital zoom on most compacts).

Summary: What else can i say, for the price and the period that it came out this is a fantastic camera, if you're looking for a cheap simple macro camera this thing is awesome for it as it has a very good macro settings. It does have video which is 420P not the best in this day and age but can come in use. The camera is small and light weight and is very easy to use. I highly recommend buying rechargeable battery's for it and a simple 8gb card will do fine.
Summary: Bought this camera for a relation who saw the 5700 model i had bought for myself a year earlier. Like me she is not a camera buff, just wants something reliable, works well does what it says on the box and doesn't eat batteries. If this is what you want this camera could be for you. The price from supplier was good, dispatch was quick,secure and well packed.
Summary: I ordered this camera on a Tuesday evening and it arrived, well packaged, on Thursday morning!! Fantastic delivery time!! I chose this camera because I already own a Fuji and thought familiarity with the brand would help in learning how to use it. Additionally, I was looking for a camera with a viewfinder, and one which would use my existing xD memory cards. I am amazed at the number of different modes and functions this camera has!
