Summary: Great little point and shoot camera with more options available than most point and shoot cameras. It offers 10x optical zoom, programmed (semi-automatic) mode, several automatic modes, a panorama mode. This camera is worth it.
Summary: My oldest saved up her allowance ($5 every two weeks then $10 the last couple weeks) to get this camera. My husband and I picked it out for her after discussing price range. This is our 3rd Fuji camera. My husband got me a refurbished bulkier version way back in 2002 when we were first expecting our oldest. I upgraded to a bigger one in 2007. Sorry for the lack of technical verbiage! Anyway, I do like Fuji over other brands because of the button.
Summary: I bought this camera at $29.99 thinking it would be a good deal but as soon as the camera arrived, it would not turn on properly. It kept saying "Turn off then turn on again". When I contacted Fuji, they want me to ship it to them at my own cost so they can "take a look at it and see if it's under warranty" - but it was broken before I even get to use it! Will never buy anything from Fuji again.
Summary: I just got one of these as a Christmas gift and couldn't wait to use it. BUT, it didn't come with a memory card, so now I have to wait til I get to town to pick one up. It seems like a well built little camera and I'm sure I'll be happy with it, as I have with previous fujifilm cameras, but it was a disappointment that no memory card came with it.
Summary: very nice point & shoot.. but drains its battery fast, and im not completely sure but I think it may also drain some while is off.. charge battery completely full and put it back in cam turned camera on to make sure it was working and back off right away when I went to use it 2 days later the battery was showing 1 bar low.. I just ordered new battery extra for back up..
Summary: Very disappointed in this camera. I'm no camera expert, I wanted something good but compact to take with me everywhere to capture all those spontaneous moments with my daughter. Quality of pictures is fair with ideal conditions and the pre-programmed settings don't seem to help much. For instance, even with minimal movement and on "Sport" mode, I haven't been able to take a single non-blurry picture.
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.
