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 was looking for a decent quality camera to replace my DSLR while I'm saving for a replacement lens for it. Boy I should have played around with this thing more before it got too late to take it back. Picture quality is very poor (I have to take 4 shots just to get one good one). I will admit that I'm used to my DSLR auto focus which is almost instantaneous and being able to take photos in rapid succession but this thing is just horrible.
Summary: I was looking to get a small digital camera to take pictures of my deployment to send back to the wife and this camera seemed to fit the bill. Well I was in for a big surprise. The first camera worked for about a day before it would no longer power up or charge. Ok, back to the store. They thought it was a battery issue and tried a known good battery, but that did not fix the problem. So they exchanged the camera for a new one, round two.
Summary: Stopped working after 17 months. Even when working, was not happy. I will not buy Fujifilm again - AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE. Bought a Panasonic from Currys (good price at time) - much, much better photos.
Summary: I'd only used this once since I bought it, just to test that it worked and it did. But after 4 months, I went to use it. It turned on, thenimmediatley off again. It was faulty and needed to be repaired or replaced straight away. What a waste of money. I'll never buy a Fuji camera again. So I wnet to Jessops and bought a Sony and its brilliant! Fuji sucks big time.
Summary: I was looking for a replacement decent camera, this seem to fit the bill at £68.99 (August 2013) The good: i) screen size 3 inch LCD ii) funky purple case colour iii) slimline style The bad: i) When brand new the battery is loose in it's compartment, this is a huge design flaw. So after fully charging the battery, when I pressed the power on button it doesn't work or jams after working.
