Summary: This is my second used camera purchased on Amazon. If my luck holds out, I just may not buy another camera new, period. The camera came as advertised. I popped in new batteries and a memory card, and started taking pictures.
Summary: Even though I returned this camera, I still think it was a good camera. The reason I returned it was because I found another fuji with a higher optical zoom and more MP for the same price. I did give up the panoramic feature that this camera had but the next one I ordered did not.
Summary: Well,it took me awhile to get to know this camera. It is in between a point and shoot and DSL because it can go sooo manual you can get lost...or you can point and shoot but what a waste to only do that! If anyone says it is not fast..they have not set it at continuous 0,03 and kept firing!!
Great camera, but, doesn't come with an instruction booklet

Summary: I have had this camera for two years now, and can't say enough good things about it. The 18X zoom with the stabilized optical zoom is great. While taking pictures of Whooping Cranes down in Texas last winter, I saw several people who missed getting great shots because they where to busy trying to...
