Summary: Not at all happy with this camera. Purchased to take on a trip to Europe, leaving my larger SLR at home because of the lack of space in my luggage. I knew this would not compare to the SLR, but had hoped it would take decent enough pictures. However, it is terrible!! Inside forget it!
Summary: Unless you actually know a lot about the technical uses of this camera, it is an ok camera. However, if your photography is one of your hobbies and you need a good camera with a low price, this is it. The macro option for this camera is better than most of the Nikon cameras I've seen.
Excerpt: 8/10 for it's many great features. The weight of lugging around a camera, extra lens and 2 tripods during large outdoor events is not much fun because after a little while ONES shoulder does get a little sore.
Summary: I LOVE this camera. It takes great pictures and is within a very reasonable price range. I read several reviews on it before I bought it and I am not disappointed. And it was delivered even earlier than expected. Great camera for the price!
Summary: It looks like a professional camera and it takes great pictures. Packed with features but I was disappointed I was not able to figure out the 3D picture. Battery life is good. Great lenses. Flash is weak.
Despite its zoom capabilities, it's not the camera to purchase.

Summary: After extensive research, I bought the the Fuji S8400W as a bridge camera for an overseas trip I was taking with my wife to Italy. I am an avid and knowledgable photographer, often taking a couple of hundred shots per day using multiple cameras.
