Summary: One item in the package damaged, the lens cleaning fluid in the starter kit was damaged and needs to be replaced. All other items are fine and in working condition. The kit was not opened as it was obvious that there was some fault with it.
Summary: Received this camera as a gift. Impressive features and a good value compared to similar competing models. Unfortunately mine almost immediately developed an intermittent issue getting the camera to turn on.

I think you should know I wanted the Fujifilm to win, it's just so much more fun to use...
Summary: I wanted a travel camera with a good zoom lens to replace my Nikon D300. After one trip I'm more than a little disappointed in the quality of the image that this camera produces. Downloading the images to either Photoshop or Piacsa, I'm only getting 6 or 7 MP in the JEPG format which isn't enough to...
