Summary: Even though it is *last years* model I am pleasantly surprised with my first few uses. Color quality is exceptional and it is extremely easy to use in auto mode (haven't had a lot of time to try all the features). My first shoot was in the mountains where I live.
Summary: I got this package for myself for an early birthday present, as my patience with point & shoot cameras has run out due to shaky and lower-quality photos. Everything listed was included, so I feel I got an excellent deal.
Summary: I love the camera. Everything else has been great except that the charger for the batteries does not work. One light never comes on, and the other never goes off. No way to tell if the batteries are charged. I could not find a link to contact the company to have this replaced.
Summary: After much research of all the Fuji digital cameras, I went with the S8200 (Black). It took me a good minute to go over all the cameras pro's and con's. but I went with the best bang for my buck. I have had Fuji cameras in the past this makes my 3rd one.
Summary: Great camera for school and personal use. it allows me to do almost everything I need to do when taking pictures. the only thing, i was under the impression that the zoom could be manually moved, but i realized that it is not.
Summary: Great camera, amazing zoom, fair video capture (the high speed capture is useless since it records at 240p). And the auto focus is ok, but is to fast when taking videos. The auto mode is quite good as-well. I did not buy the camera from amazon, since amazon was $50 more then my local camera store.
Summary: Have had it for two weeks now and it has exceeded my expectations and having compared it to the Nikon P510 and the Canon SX40..both good cameras, but the Fuji color is working great for me. Picked up mine at Costco for $229. with Fuji bag and a 16GB SD card!
Pros: Great lens that is sharp at all focal length. Good build quality, very good ergonomics make it easy to hold with good button/control placement. EVF is good as is the LCD. Love the easy to navigate menu system..quick and easy to make change settings. Pretty quick to lock focus, even at full tele. ...
Summary: This review is an initial impression from a long-time Kodak EasyShare user. Every camera I have owned had its strengths, its weaknesses, and its places that improve with a learning curve. The FinePix S8200 is no exception.
