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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
