Summary: Don't get me wrong, I've only bought fujifilm cameras for the last 7 years and have 2 stunning cameras from the range & hence I didn't hesitate to order this one. It took 2 photos & immediately stopped working. I will NEVER buy fujifilm again. My Godsons 5th birthday party will instead be remembered for all the wrong reasons. This special day ruined by a brand new product... DO NOT buy this camera, you do not hate yourself that much!
Pros: Rugged, Easy To Use, Excellent In Low Light, Good Sized Screen, Nice Features and Settings,
Summary: After reading the reviews and researching for a great budget camera i was very excited to find this, but after just months of use i genuinely hate it! The photos take at least 5 long seconds to take if not longer so it's a nightmare doing posed photos or asking other people to take pictures as by the time it takes the people have stopped smiling or the passer-by has pointed it to the floor to see if they're doing right!
Summary: it was the first time i'd bought a fuji , read loads of reviews which genrally said "what a great camera" but i have been so dissapointed with the camera... out doors in bright sunshine it was OK but as soon as i tried it indoors it was terrible....DARK , OUT OF FOCUS...!!!! no matter what setting i used..... picture quality is shocking...cannot be used in anything other than bright sunlight.... AVOID AT ALL COST....
Summary: The camera tends to turn itself off at critical times, like when taking a shot. I thought that the battery had run down but it was fine. I had to take the battery out and re-insert it before the camera would work again for a few shots and then, guess what? Yes, it would turn itself off again. The quality of the photos & colour is disappointing. My 3.2MP Olympus camera takes far superior photos. It will take a lot for me to buy another Fuji camera.
Summary: Bought this camera on AMAZON from TOP ELECTRICALS. When I first bought it and turned it on the camera had a message asking me to switch it off then on again. I did this and the camera appeared to work OK. I put it away for a month before taking it out again but this time the same message appeared each time I turned it on and so would not work at all!! I tried to contact TOP ELECTRICALS to report the problem and either get a repair / refund but got no reply.
Summary: Rubbish. It has broken twice in the space of six months. It is overly fragile and I would not reccommend it to anyone. The first time it broke due to "impact damage". I am guessing a friend dropped it when i asked them to take a shot, as i did not do it, or it may have been crushed in transit (travel). I sent it off for reapir as it was under warranty. I cost £45 to replace the flash.
Summary: I bought this camera a month back as I needed a point and click. On the first weekend of use I had some doubts. It would periodically take the shot and turn itself off. Following weekend it was doing it more often but this time sometimes turning itself off before the shot was even taken. On the third weekend it wouldn't even turn on at all. Charged the battery over night, but still nothing.
Summary: Very disappointed with this camera. Bought it for a family event and everytime I took a picture it turned off. Missed out on capturing so many memories. Have returned the camera and now in search of another.
