Summary: Excellent camera in its class. My only issue is the battery cover which is very flimsy! I have handled mine with extreme care and so far so good, but bear this in mind. In actual use I'd give it 5 stars!
Summary: We bought this camera in 2008. It was our first experience with a digital camera and we wanted better photo resolution than we were getting from our SRL Minolta we'd had for 20 years. The zoom is fantastic and the option of the standard view finder was a must. I also like the idea of not having to remember to recharge batteries. The image stabilization is great especially when in full zoom.
Excerpt: I couldn't ask more in a camera, seen less features on a camera costing twice as much. Including 18x zoom and a great macro function. I suggest; get one before they sell out during the Christmas shopping season.
Summary: I loved this camera - until I got sand blown into the lens when I was taking photos on the beach. (NEVER take a camera to the beach.) So it no longer works. I'm heartbroken. I've replaced it with a very nice Nikon (I was out of town and the camera shop did not have this Fuji camera or I would have bought the same one!) So far, I'm disappointed (taking photos is just not as fun - because the pictures aren't as great.) MISS this camera.
Summary: i have had this camera before and i no for a fact that it works awesome if you want a camera that can reach out well this is the one for you plus it has that 18x zoom plus it works on 4 AA battery quality pics on every shot plus you can add diffrent len rings for it plus the lcd is 2.5 so you can veiw your pics before you save them for that family moment i simply love this camera i rate this one 5stars*****
Summary: This was my first digital camera I loved it got it for $279.00 and would have given it 5 stars if it had not died ,I ordered it feb 18 2008 it came in about two weeks .I have taken about 3000 shots and made two short videos all good till it died last week May 30 2011.I have not found a local place to have it repaired area code 94589 so it may have a second if the repair is not to costly.
Worked fine for a while - but in the end disposable.

Summary: This is one of four Fujifilm cameras I've owned. My complaint about this one: It simply doesn't focus anymore. One out of 10 photos is acceptable. I suppose this is because it's old. Two whole years. That's about par for my experience with products from this company. I've sworn off Fujifilm now and will buy top-notch brands. Other problems: * Poor battery life. But this seems to be the case across the entire industry.
Summary: I love the zoom the picture quality and the 4aa batteries life.So I don't have to worry about the batteries going dead.It take great pictures.Haven't tried to take videos with it yet.Dislike is the review button sometimes gets turned on by accident.Otherwise a great camera.
