Summary: Generally I am well pleased with my purchase and look forward to using the camera more fully and coming to terms with what it can do. The only disappointment that to load pictures or SD cards onto my computer it needs Windoiws 7 or later. As I run Windows XP on my computer this is a problem. Nowhere in the slaes description is this mentioned at all.
Excerpt: This camera works really well for casual photography. One should not expect a professional level of photography with it. I do not use camera for professional photography. So, it works more than good for me. It clicks clear outdoor pictures and has good resolution and zoom. I carry this camera during each and every trip. Also, it comes with a two year manufacturer warranty. That works well for me.
Lovely gift for my brother who is studying photography
20 November 2013
Excerpt: My brother enrolled himself for photography courses as he was very passionate about becoming a professional photographer. After his enrollment I wanted to give him a camera which would serve as starting step to his studies. I purchased this Fujifilm FinePix SL 300 advanced point and shoot camera of 14 megapixels for him. He was left totally stumped and surprised and loved the gift I got for him.

Summary: I bought this mainly for the zoom and also as an alternative to my Lumix compact camera. Not used it at any concerts yet and I always find cameras don't take good photos in poor lighting conditions. Hope this one is different..... On a plus, the photos I've taken in daylight have been amazing quality and am really pleased with them.
From the manual this looks like a fantastic camera AND NOW I HAVE BOUGHT A MEMORY CARD IT IS FANTASTIC

Summary: When I first tried operating this camera, a message: "insert memory card", kept appearing on the screen. In the instructional manual it states "pictures can be stored on an optional memory card" indicating a memory card is not a pre-requisite. I am a novice, so assumed the camera would work without any additional purchases. When I contacted Amazon they just said that Fuji do not include a memory card, but this is not specified on their website.
