Summary: Purchasing this Fujifilm FinePix was a great solution for my husband. His original camera, identical to this one, was in need of repair which would have cost more than purchasing this camera. It arrived promptly in original packaging and it works great.
Excerpt: In 9 months that I own the S7000 I've made about 10000 pictures of different style. I love this camera 'cause it's a very flexible robust companion. The more I work, the better I can use all features. Most of all, I use the M-Mode, because it offers shutter speeds down to 1/10000s.
Summary: Quality, much better than I imagined. I was unsure about switching from 35m SLR film to digital but this little beauty has changed my way of thinking. The controls are very similar to an SLR. The results speak for themselves. I have used the camera now for about 6 months, taken over 500 shots.
Summary: OK - I am not a "camera-phile". I read all of the reviews by the more experienced camera users. All very informative, but very technical. From a "regular mom" consumer point of view, I wanted to add my comments. I LOVE this camera. The quality of pictures I am able to take is just fabulous.
Summary: This is the best non-dslr camera you can buy. I'm taking near professional photographs and I'm still on full auto. Ability to add tele or wide lenses and a variety of filters is also a great plus. Buy it, it's worth 2x this price!
Summary: May be this sounds interesting, but I'd been upgraded to the FinePix S7000 from a Canon A95. You can ask me the question: why did I ever upgrade when I was mad about my A95? The reasons are simple: - Because I cannot afford two digit cams at the same time at this price level (so my second one is a...
Microdrive is fast enough. Video capturing is excellent

Summary: This is my 2nd digital comera. I have been using it for over 8 months. I am very happy with this camera. I agree with other reviews about the good photo quality from this camera. Just to address something not heavily covered by other reviews. 1.
Summary: I haven't seen any battery drain with the FinePix S7000 and use a CompactFlash card to store the images. Also when it arrived it was factory set at 1 Megapixel so you need to push the f button and change the quality setting to a higher level [I keep mine set at 6 Megapixel].
