Summary: This camera was amazing. Though it is most likely outdated by newer cameras, doing a quick scan I love the design of this one the most. Mine served me well and was mega durable and resisted many drops to the ground and even into a bonfire once. Makes me sad that just a few splashes of water killed it. Regardless it was a very good camera, very easy to carry around it became second-nature to always have it on me.
Summary: There are much better cameras out there for $200 - this one is not user-friendly in terms of navigating through pictures or menus. The battery doesn't last too long because you have to have the camera turned on while you upload pictures to your computer (if you don't use a cardreader and just use the USB cord), and the battery DOES NOT CHARGE while you have it hooked up to your computer.
Summary: I bought this camera about 2 years ago and it is an amazing piece of equipment!! There are so many features and options to choose from to take the perfect pictures....You can even take a picture in complete darkness with the right settings and they come out bright and detailed. The text feature on the camera is amazing...you can zoom in and take pictures of items or works close up..
Summary: I really love the style of this camera, appearance and functionality of the menus and buttons, however, it wasn't as good at focusing on close objects as my previous Z1 of the same brand, and on low light photos are grainier than I was hoping for. I've moved on from it and have moved on to two digital cameras since this one. I think there are better options out there today for the money.
Summary: GREAT low-cost camera .. not an Amazon buy (from an egg-cellent CA company : .. Bit over $100 ..free: shipping, 2GB SD card and soft case. I've owned it a bit over 6 months. I'm an experienced photographer, but never owned a digital camera before. Perfect? No, for $450-800 get a better one ;) Others in $100 range may be competitive.. I can't say. It compares very favorably to ones my kids have owned that cost much more. This camera was released ~2 yrs ago.
Summary: Love this camera, bought it as a replacement for Fugi Z1. Pros: Size, fast start up, battery life, picture and video quality, 5x Optical zoom, large display, easy to use menus with many useful options, Uses SD and Xd cards, image stabilizer ... really helps with a small camera, tripod mount, PRICE. Cons: Must remove battery and place into charger (Z1 came with a cradle that was used to transfer pics to PC and charge battery.
