Good camera with a few issues. Serviceable for the amateur photographer.
4 weeks ago
Summary: As an "amateur" who wants to take quality shots for business purposes, I would rate this camera as a good buy. The huge negative is that it takes AA batteries, and they run out incredibly fast. I would have loved a tilting, semi-articulate viewing screen, but this is okay. The shots are great, the features are easy to use and in Auto mode, it produces well-balanced photos.
Excerpt: The Fuji FinePix S6800 Digital Camera, Is really easy to use, and takes great pictures in low light and the zoom , is great to with 30 times zoom. I had other cameras and when I started to use this one , I feel I miss alot . I so happy I got this FinePix S6800 Digital Camera !!! This is a point and shot camera but can do yojur own settings. Its fantastic. I miss so much taken pictures before I got ths Fuji FinePix S6800 Digital Camera !!
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
Excerpt: Early Birthday gift for myself, light weight, multipurpose, fun to use. The sales clerk took time to explain, usually let on AUtO and truly takes great pictures! having many grandkids involved in many activities, and little ones just being cute this captures all!
Not my all the time camera, but it has some nice features.

Summary: I Purchased this camera to replace a Panasonic Lumix DMC-Zs8. I used to work for Panasonic and I have always loved their Cameras so anyone reading may want to consider any of my biases before purchasing. I used the Lumix for a few years to take outdoor images of my son's sporting events. It has a long zoom for a point and click camera and many features similar to a bridge camera.
Excerpt: I purchased this on close out just prior to a trip. I have a Pentax K10D which is a fine camera, albeit several years old, that is considerably larger and I wanted a camera which I could stow easily in carryon, and that would be easy to carry whilst walking around. Like the K10D, it's capabilities exceed my abilities. Unlike the K10D it uses regular, not rechargeable, batteries but so far, with dozens of pictures taken, the batteries are still going strong.
Excerpt: I love this camera...Great for us inexperienced photo takers. Take aim, click and great photos every time. I was looking for a camera that was easy to use, no fuss, and took great photos. This camera is everything I was looking for and more.
The camera seems nice, but the strap broke immediately

Summary: The camera seems nice, but the strap broke immediately, and I can't seem to use any other strap for it. The eyelet for the strap won't accept any of the straps I've tried. Any idea where I can get a good camera strap for it? I didn't like the one it came with - too short - and I also like a strap that identifies the camera immediately.
