Summary: There was a gap in my digital camera inventory for a superzoom camera. I now use this camera at the beach taking pictures of my windsurfing mates. OK so you do not get great image stabilisation (as with Canon)but then I only paid £90 for it from Currys (currently much cheaper than Amazon).
Summary: I have had the camera for 4 weeks, and it is just what I was looking for, a camera that gives me a great auto option but also the opportunity to make my own decisions about settings when i have the time to try to be creative.
Summary: I've had this camera for a few weeks now and brought it specifically because I wanted to step up a grade with my photography as I was expecting my first Grandchild. I have to say I have not been disappointed.
Summary: I bought this camera in November 08 to upgrade from my Fujifilm A800 for only £75! Great bargain! The camera is great if you are a beginner. I'm not quite good with manual controls yet and instead of having a huge camera like a Canon or a Nikon, this works better for me to play with.
Summary: I bought this as a replacement for an olympus compact. I wanted better optical zoom and some more features The camera works well, pity about the batteries, it would be better if it was rechargeable but battery life is OK. I would be happpy to recommend it for a real amateur like me.
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.
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.
