Great photos, easy to handle

Summary: Sharp looking camera gives great clear photos with no shake or blur. There are so many settings to play with also. Be prepared to go online to download the manual as this shipped direct from Japan and took about two weeks. So happy I waited, definitely worth it and Amazon has the best price.
Summary: This camera does take some time to learn the basic operation. Because the written manual was not in English made it tougher because than I had to use the online manual, and it is difficult to mark with my pencil. I am not there completely, but the camera has lots of great options. I particularly like using the viewing screen as the shutter button because it cuts down on the movement in the camera when shooting any subject. Quality of picture is great as well.
Summary: The first camera delivered had a fault with its battery but the complete camera was replaced quickly and without any problems. Having received a camera which worked it has taken me some time to become familiar with its 100% touch screen controls having been used to manual controls previously. I have a DSLR as my principal camera and purchased the Fuji after some reading of technical reviews simply to have one to put in the pocket and go anywhere.
Summary: Funky camera, bought for my wife. She loves it, especially the way you switch it on with a big front slider, and the zoom is digital, and it stays slim throughout without a lens sliding in and out. Also that it's a no-brainer to connect to your iPad. Which it takes a much better picture than, by the way, always seeming to get the exposure right when the iPad gets it too dark or too light.
Summary: I think it's generally ok, ut for the price it could definitely be better. I bought a Fuji camera about 6 years ago from Amazon and it was fantastic and lasted years. It took amazing photos and videos until it finally broke... So I decided to replace it with this one.... There are definite bugs in the design and the colour on the camera is beautiful but not durable at all. I was careful with it inmy bag and after the first trip out it's already scratched in a few places.
Summary: I am one of those people who are still behind the technology. To illustrat this, I still got my old sony Ericsson phone with keys to press because I had no confidence using touch screen until I bought this FUJIFILM. First it was the colour which made me chose this camera and I must say it did not disappoint me. It's colour is fantastic and I love it. I was surprised to find this sophisicated camera user friendly. Nothing I found complecated with this camera.
