Autofocus off resulting in blurry photos and no help from the company!!!
6 February 2014
Summary: I was really happy to purchase this camera after researching cameras in my price range way too long... or perhaps not long enough as it turned out. Seemed to have everything I needed. However the autofocus is off by enough so that all my photos are a very soft focus to put it nicely. I contacted the company and emailed them 2 representative photos using a tripod and a timer delay to eliminate camera movement.
Summary: so I waited 2 days for this camera to come. When I got off work came home it was sitting on my porch waiting for me. I got it inside opened it up got it all set to take my pic of my dog Diamond. So I lift my camera to take the pick I push on the shutter button ....and nothing the shutter button didn't work. So im sending it back and im getting a replacement sent to me. Hopefully the new one will work. Ill keep you posted.
Avoid FUJI cameras! The USB port is not covered by warranty
23 March 2013
Summary: I purchased this camera from Amazon in January but did not actually use it until late February. The USB Port seemed to be jammed the first time I used it. Yes, I inserted the cable properly. I have purchased over a dozen digital cameras (for myself and family members), so I'm always mindful to check the curvature of the USB connection. The second time I tried to use the USB port, it was so difficult that I thought I had somehow turned the cable the wrong way.
Summary: Learned the hard way that Fuji camera movable lens are not sealed from dust and grit and Fuji does do not cover a camera that stops working due to dust or grit under warranty. Sent a camera under warranty to them due to the lens not moving in or out. Warranty was declined, claiming the warranty does not cover failure due to dust or grit getting into the lens mechanism. They offered to repair it for almost as much as the camera cost.
Summary: Kamera kam heute an, Lieferzeit war o.K. Habe gleichzeitig einen Akku und eine Speicherkarte bestellt, diese wurden einfach in einen ungepolsterten A4 Umschlag geworfen. Der Versandkarton der Kamera war eingedrückt, die Polsterung im Karton bestand nur aus ein paar Papierfetzen. Nach dem auspacken musste ich fest stellen, daß ich die Kamera nicht laden kann da ein ENGLISCHER Ladestecker mitgeliefert wurde.
