Love this camera!

Excerpt: My husband bought this camera for my birthday last year after a lot of research into the easiest and best digital cameras for the price. We wanted something that had a zoom for sporting events and for outdoor shots. I aboslutely love this camera. It is easy to use and the pictures turn out great. I love the zoom option and is great for sporting events. It takes great outdoor pictures, they are very clear and the colors are sharp.
Excerpt: I love my digital camera...I got the Fuji Finepix S8100 in January of this year right before we went on vacation and I am very pleased with the pictures. I am someone who loves taking pictures but is not a professional. I used to own a small digital camera with a very limited zoom and minimal megapixals. It served a good purpose but I had difficulty when I was far away or when the lighting was not good.
Fuji Digital Camera is easy to use but disappointing

Excerpt: The photos I've taken with the Fuji Digital Camera S8100 are only average. They are grainy and, sometimes blurred. While the camera is easy to learn and simple to use, I could have achieved the same quality of photos (perhaps even better!) with a point and shoot compact camera. I would not recommend spending your money on this. I wanted the "sports" functionality and zoom and neither has resulted in satisfactory photos.
Great camera for someone who just wants great pictures

Summary: I have had my camera for about a month. I am not a photo hobbyist just want good pictures. I use it on 10MP mostly but can take low resolution frames for posting on the internet. The the 18X zoom really makes it easy to use as I don't have to move around a lot to frame my pictures. I can also take macro and super macro pictures which is great when I am trying to explain something to someone on the net and I can take a cloe up picture and send it to them.
Summary: With the 18x zoom lens, you can do almost everything you want. I have taken couple shots with the 18x, very details, but your hand need to be very steady, even with the stablize function on. This is normal however. The only thing which is weak on this machine is the video, you can't zoom during video is taking. The new Nikon P80 can zoom. Many other brand offer the zooming in video taking like the Panasonic, and canon.
Summary: I am not a photographer, and I have no wish to set this and that and that and that in order to take a picture, nor do I want to trust an auto that produces pics that nobody wants to look at. THIS CAMERA SOLVED THOSE PROBLEMS. I use auto and sometimes the anti-shake and sometimes the fast shot for moving objects, that's it. On 18x full optical, the shots are better than anything I've ever gotten on a digital (and I've had three or four of slightly lower price).
Summary: I've used Fuji products for many years. I've had an S7000 for several years and love it but wanted the added zoom and megs. The S8100fd is lighter, well laid out, and does all that I want in a camera. I was a professional photographer about thirty years ago but left that career to work for Fuji for about six years. I started using Fuji products at that time (employee discount!) and haven't stopped. I was hooked on both their film and cameras.
