Summary: This camera is great for the price. The zoom makes it very versatile for any situation. Sure the sensor may be a bit on the small end, but the ability to get the long shots makes me choose it over my DSLR at times.
Summary: I didn't realize when I bought the camera it had such a small sensor, or I would of never bought it. Pretty much have to have it on a tripod for any picture seems like no matter the settings. I like my old camera better.
Pros: smallest sensor there is in this camera, low light, and fluorescent lighting
Cons: Great zoom! Good shots of the moon. Pretty good closeup, much better after I bought filters.
Excellent bridge camera with many features and great light gathering.

Summary: Bought refurbished camera, Fuji does not pack these units very well, very minimal on materials, a plastic bag that was worn through from all the movement during shipping and a piece of cardboard, no other materials, and no lense cap.
Summary: This camera Rocks! Used it to take a picture of the moon that was about the size of a dime at arms length. I now use the pic as wallpaper at 1280x800! The zoom is unreal and has all the features of my 9600/9100 but this is way easier to use with full auto.
Summary: Everything is great but the tripod is pretty cheap. Really thin aluminum. Camera met our expectations except it didn't come with a USB cable to download the pics to our camera. It only had a HDMI cable.

Summary: Just a brief comment on this item, which I ended up returning. While reviews on professions photo sites are good, and the price is very reasonable, there were a few small things that turned me off.

Summary: This was a gift for my mother for her trip to Mexico this past spring and she loved this camera. She was at first intimidated by it due to its size but it was very easy to use and she took some great pictures.
Summary: I have only had this camera for 2 days. but so far I am loving it. great price. I am just an amateur who loves taking pictures. I live in an area with a lot of wildlife so the zoom was the selling point for me but I love the different effects you can do with this camera. having fun.

Summary: As our first upgrade from tiny, point and shoot cameras, we are completely satisfied. It takes great pictures indoors and in outdoor daylight. It seems to handle motion pretty well and is easy enough to set up.
