Summary: This camera is very easy to use. Great for a beginner or experience user. Easy to switch from photos to taking videos. Only problem I have found is a humming noise when in video mode play back when the video is zooming in and out.
Summary: I have been able to shoot pictures of my neighbor over a block and a half away and they had good clarity on full zoom. Inside shooting with the flash resulted in good skin tones and sharpness. The camera is easy to understand and came with a manual. What is deceiving about the description is there are 2 models of the S8200 on Walmart.com this model Walmart stock number 551204418 currently $279 and Walmart stock number 551289240 currently $269.
Summary: This camera replaced a Canon PowerShot A560 Point and Shoot which had develolped some issues. The Fujifilm FinePix has lots of neat features, but the documentation that comes with the camera doesn't begin to address them all in any detail. That's why it's titled "Basic Manual" and is only 28 pages long. The bundle includes a CD-ROM which has the owner's manual which you can save as a PDF. This manual is 140 pages and covers everything you might need to know.
Pros: good pictures with very little effort.
Cons: only playing movies in a quicktime program. can't really stick it in my pocket as before.
