Summary: The first thing that caught my attention was the small size and weight of this camera. of course having 16 megapizels and 10x optical zoom are a few of the main reason I purchased the camera. There are a lot of things you can do with this camera, just look through the menus and start shooting. My first photos of some flowers (still life) came out amazing.
Summary: I loved this camera. It takes great close up shots for selling items online. Then, 8 months after purchase, the message "Turn off the camera and turn it on again" appeared. Rebooting it did nothing to help. Fuji will fix it free. Here is the problem: They will have my camera for 4 - 6 weeks in order to fix it or send me a new one.
Summary: I received one free on a Mattress sale promotion at Macy's. It had a permanent dull spot in the sensor which produced a spot in every photo (yes, the lens was clean). But, I loved the camera, so I bought a replacement from Amazon. This second one had a defective flash. It worked a couple of times, then quit. I tried resetting to factory settings, various program modes, recharged the battery, inserted a new battery, and tried forced flash but still no flash.
Summary: I was looking for an inexpensive camera for taking pictures at family gatherings and also of my border collies. Dogs and children move very quickly and I found with my old camera there was invariably movement after I clicked the shutter and before the camera actually took the picture. It is a learned skill, I guess, but I do find that the pictures I've gotten with this camera come out pretty nicely. It is not the smallest camera, but there is a 10x zoom on it.
Summary: Impressed with quality of pictures and user friendly. However, I don't think it is a "true" 10x zoom as advertised unless there's a technical feature that I don't understand...I have an older Nikon that is a 5x zoom and takes closer shots than the Fugi. Overall performance is excellent nonetheless. I'm happy. Great service on order!
Summary: i love this camera. it takes awsome pics and the battry life if long 306 pics before it died !!! thats allot ..... bigtooseek was awsome i had no problems and the camera came sooner than i thouhgt it came in 1 day !!!!!
Summary: This is something I waited nearly 6 months to buy and I'm not disappointed. Same maker as my orig camera so my learning curve was cut. :-) I am a birder and gardener and it takes great pics I can upload and add to my writings.
