One minor complaint is parts of the menu navigation can be complicated. It

Summary: Bought this camera casue I needed a camera that took pictures and videos at the same time, Becuase I take a lot of videos of dancers and needed to take pictures too, with this camera I dont have to go to the menu and change from video to pictures (missing the dancing part), I just press the shutter button for the perfect picture . Thus not lossing a great shot! The pictures come out great! Videos beautiful, zoom excellent, the price excellent.
Summary: I just got my camera this morning and I am already in love with it. It's the first "real" camera I've owned (all others were just crappy little handhelds that weren't worth a flip) and I literally teared up when I started taking pictures with it. It's amazing. I took clear pictures of a bird in a treetop for at least 80 yards away. I could barely see it with my naked eye, but it's beautiful in the pictures! I am delighted with this set.
Summary: I come here from pocket Lumix (good) and Canon with mobile LCD's (very cool). This is a new venture for me, and this camera is amazing, but a little big perhaps for what I was thinking of. I can't see why haul different lenses around tho-this starts with a great wide angle and shoots 1 cm macro!
Summary: I got this camera as an upgrade from my small handheld canon powershoot point-and-shoot camera. And man, was it an upgrade! I was first considering a DSLR but the price was way out of my range. I got this camera after reading several reviews and jumping from camera to camera. I used it at my brother's college graduation and we sat in the way back of the Big House (google it, i was far up) but I was able to zoom all the way in to see the Commencement speakers and the...
This is my 4th Fujifilm FinePix and this one is the best yet!

Summary: I have been so pleased with this brand due to its versatility. I take a LOT of photographs and I love being able to instantly switch from the zoom setting to super macro to capture whatever catches my interest. At first I was disappointed to see that it didn't use AA batteries, but I bought an extra Li-on battery and that way I always have a spare. The battery life is good and I've been averaging about 300 pictures before needing to replace it.
The best camera possible for the price. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.

Summary: I do not know how they packed so many features into a camera for this price. It has everything you could want in a camera and more. One thing I can think of is the view finder that activates automatically when your eye nears it. Also I took a photo of a building at least three miles away, using the 50 times optical zoom, while hand holding the camera, and the photo came out sharp. The 12,800 ISO is a professional's camera setting.
Summary: I purchased this camera as a more light-weight option when traveling. We just returned from two weeks in Nepal where we trekked through the foothills of the Himalaya and then ventured down to Chitwan National Park for an elephant safari through the jungle. The camera was very portable and easy to use and the pictures I took, even on the AUTO mode, were outstanding. I am still amazed by the camera's performance.
Summary: The camera was just what I was hoping for. The pictures it takes are great. I shouldn't have been surprised, but some of the items in the bundle are not the best quality. I will upgrade as time goes by. For the time being, I am quite satisfied.
