Summary: Agreed, it is a great camera for the price, but it does have auto focus!!! Three focus modes (manual, shutter and continuous) are controlled by a rotary switch "AF-[C-S] MF" on the left side of the camera.
Summary: I decided to buy the Fuji S9100 as an upgrade for my present Fuji S5200. I was watching & considering a comparable Nikon, but the going prices were out of reach for my budget. However, I am not disappointed with my choice for Fuji. As stated previously, this camera was an upgrade.
Summary: Oh, you didn't want to buy this camera. Its 28mm wide-angle is way too useful for you; you want one of those 14x zooms on a Canon or Nikon that doesn't have a true wide-angle setting (maybe only going out to 35mm). And the pictures are way too sharp for your needs.
Summary: This is a great, easy-to-use camera for the beginner and experienced photographer alike. It features all the advantages of a Digital SLR without the problem of dust accumulation on the mirror or lens, because it features a permanently attached 10.7X zoom lens.
Summary: I have used this camera now, for over a year (bought in March of 07) and I am completely satisfied with it. It performs well, in automatic mode, in my wife's hands and yet it has the complete range of controls that I require.
Summary: Well, I don't even know where to start for this camera. But about a year ago, when this camera first got launched to the digital camera market, it costed nearly twice as much as what you can pay for it now. For the price, this camera has alot to offer. I just love the color tone of Fujifilm.
Summary: Have owned the camera for a month. Very nice camera, great deal for the price. Controls of the camera are well thought out and with a week or so of practice you become comfortable with it. It has many tools and features that enable the ability to take great pictures.
