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. Price on Amazon has gone up nearly $100 in the last month now the people have found about it. As good as similar Nikon or Cannon but priced less.
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. I will update my review after a bit of time with it.

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. I found some of the selection buttons on the camera body to be a bit fiddly, requiring multiple presses to select or accidentally pressing one because there are several, very close to each other but I blame that on fat fingers as much as the camera itself.
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: This camera is much better than what I expected. It's as easy to use as you want to make it or it can be as complicated as you want for those who prefer using all the extra features. I've taken some excellent pictures of the moon to give you an idea of how powerful the zoom lens is. Of course that shot had to be taken at full zoom and it wasn't terribly difficult stabilizing the camera to get a perfect picture.
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.
Summary: I am by no means an expert on cameras - wish I was! I just love taking pictures. I was looking for a replacement for my current digital point and shoot camera but wanted something that had a better zoom on it - this camera has it! I am still learning how to use it as it has so many more features then a regular old point and shoot. Also, I love the color resolution in the pictures - very vibrant. And the picture quality is very good as well.
Summary: I like simple. This camera is very simple to use. My teenage son used the camera the other night to take pictures of the eclipse of the moon, and the pictures turned out great. He had never used the camera before and was able to take great shots of the red moon. I use the camera mainly for videoing my son's wrestling matches. The camera takes excellent videos at 60 fps, which makes it easy to view in slow motion for review with his coach.
