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: 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: We purchased this camera as a replacement for an aging Canon point and shoot. Overall, it's very nice. Zoom is very good and takes surprisingly good photos at 40x. The night shot and panorama features are also very impressive. We have a very similar Fujifilm camera that we bought several years ago.
