Summary: Decent camera, not enough internal storage at all. I mean when your making a $300 camera put a 8gb internal hard drive card, it would cost 5 bucks to do it instead of making people buy an additional card too. Just a money gimmick.
Loved pics and features, couldn't take the overheating

Summary: This was a great little camera to get nice and excited over. Waterproof to 20 feet, all those great features, HD video, stereo audio... all that stuff was awesome. However, I HAD to return this camera. It was going to just frustrate me and make me kick myself for spending the money if I didn't!
Summary: We took this camera to Tahiti to take underwater photographs. It makes a tremendous amount of noise as it takes photos underwater and uses a lot of battery power when doing so. The photos are not as clear as the previous model. I am not pleased with this camera.
Summary: I was so excited to get this camera. I read all the reviews I could find and thought this one was just what I was looking for. Only one week and I knew I made a mistake. It seemed complicated, and sometimes when I'd turn it on and go to take a photo, it would just freeze. I couldn't take a picture or even turn it off.
Summary: The camera feels durable. Good rubber plastic construction. Pan feature is nice. However, during playback of video a noticeable intermittent buzz/hum could be heard. Might be associated with the focusing of the lense. I don't know if this is typical or just a faulty item. Daylight photo's were decent and the ability to take pictures quickly without using the multipicture function was pretty decent. Image quality doesn't compare to a digital DSLR.
After the first day in aquapark, got very foggy and broken
26 June 2013
Summary: I bought this camera and used it only for one day. Although it looks sturdy and is positioned as waterproof, after swimming in aquapark for 1 hour, the screen and the lens got foggy and the camera stopped operating. The battery compartment was well-closed - checked it several times. I like the size and the quality of the case, as well as photo and video taking, just a pity that it didn't respond to the waterproof claim.
Summary: Camera was great but when it arrived there was no cable to charge it. I was told by Amazon that the camera was still usable so all they could do was offer me a 10% refund which was obviously a ridiculous statement to make. After 2 weeks of arguing I eventually got my cable which was finally sent to me direct from Fuji. A real shame I had to wait so long and fight so hard to get the correct equipment to allow me use this camera.
Summary: Got this as a chuck-it-in-the-bag camera to use in the garden or beach, especially for the kids to play with also. Reasonable pictures in good light, but often blurred and noisy when indoors or other lower light conditions. Underwater photos were particularly bad unless in crystal clear conditions. Similar story with the video. The slo-mo stuff was fun and the high-quality options stood up fairly well in bright light . . .
