Excerpt: If you are looking for a good digital camera that is portable enough to place it in your pocket, ready for you at any time, easy to use and still capable of taking great pictures. Stop looking and get this one now! The FinePix V10 is just impressive. With a LCD monitor of 3 inches it is fun to use and immediately share the results with friends. Probably the larger LCD monitor for a digital camera in the market. Don't let the size deceive you.
Summary: First digital camera and WOW, great camera for an Amateur. Easy to use with my limited knowledge of all things technical and as I learn more it also has many capabilities. Love the large viewer (if that is what it is called) 3" and for someone who has a hard time seeing it is great. In less than 1/2 hr was up and running with it, had pics on computer and was emailing them away.
Summary: I sent my first camera back, as it seemed the battery when charged would only take about 30 pictures. It is not that much better with the replacement that I got. I called Fuji and they told me that the battery lasts about one hour when used constantly, ( because of the huge lcd screen), which is what happened when I took school prom pictures. I needed to have two extra batteries with me.
Summary: This camera is perfect for my needs. It takes great quality pictures and has many different options for advanced users. The only thing I don't like about the camera is how still you need to hold it to make sure the picture doesn't end up blurry. Overall I would purchase this product again.
Great features and fast, but grainy at all but lowest ISO setting

Summary: I wanted a small point-and-shoot for my daughters and speed was the most important feature to me. Nothing is more frustrating than framing and focusing perfectly and then missing the shot due to shutter lag. In that department, this camera delivers in spades. Not only is it fast to power up and fast to focus, but there's also no noticible delay between focus lock and shutter fire. Video quality is outstanding too.
