Excerpt: let me start by saying that if this camera had a 'backup' battery spot, it would be soooo much more awesome. as it is, its pretty awesome. unfortunatly, mine got stolen but i am going to try to find another one like it. the fact that you can only charge the camera elaves a problem. i brought it to disney when i went and found that the battery life was poor. if you have it out alot, its going to die quickly. i wish i could have just brought batteries as a backup.
Excerpt: I bought this camera in 2008 so I have had it for almost 3 years now. The main reason I chose this camera was because it came in hot pink (my favorite color) and it was very small and lightweight. I just needed a simple camera that wasn't too expensive. It has held up pretty well over the past 3 years. I have taken a lot of pictures with it. I have 2 daughters and I take a lot of pictures of them.
Summary: Camera is very limited with no view finder. Have to use lcd screen to compose picture. Not really very happy with it.Have to admit that it takes good quality video. Would not recommend it to a friend.
Summary: I bought this camera about a month ago and after using it for a few weekes, I noticed a vertical line appearing in the same spot in all of my pictures that were taken without flash. I ended up calling the Support Center and was told to send the camera in for repair or exchange. I felt the woman I spoke to from Service and Repair was very rude to me during the phone call and seemed annoyed to have to my questions.
Summary: This isn't a bad camera, but it isn't great either. It is really just average. The photos are decent quality, but tend to be very grainy even in full light. I'm not happy with the flash. The LCD flash is too bright and white, imo. The idea of a point and shoot is that you don't have to mess around with it too much when you want to take a picture, but with the flash being so bright it defeats the purpose. The pictures look great if it is really bright or really dark.
Summary: This is a great looking little camera and I love the way it works but the quality of the pictures was iffy. I call Fuji and they had me send it in for recalabration and I am still waiting to receive it back.......
Probably could have found a camera better equipped for the money

Summary: Good camera. I was looking for something different and I liked how the door slides in the front to turn the camera on and off and the zoom lens doesn't stick out like others. I was debating betweeen this and the Exilm. I went Fuji because I figured they have been in the camera and optics industry for a long time and would have the best quality. The quality seems great. A few downsides..
Summary: I bought this camera after reading several reviews and I must say I'm not really pleased with it. Many people wrote that the camera doesn't take very sharp pictures but I thought it was just a matter of technique but it really doesn't. When in automatic mode it's really difficult to get good pictures but when you use the different settings it works much better.
