Summary: The first one arrived very quickly -1/3. I took about 4 and it pictures STOP. Called Outlet and made arrangements to return it. No problem The replacement arrive 1/24. These were the snags. I enjoy the camera. It is what I want - something I could place in a shirt pocket. Considering the no hassle and the cameras feathers. I probably should give the whole experience 5stars Side comment why doesn't Amazon accept paypal?
Summary: This is a good camera for the price, though I sent it back. I thought I'd be happy with a basic point and shoot, but this one just didn't do it for me. This camera does not work well in low light situations and had trouble keeping colors true. Indoor photos looked very yellow. This is a good camera for the price point, but if you care about the quality of your photos I would recommend spending a little more and getting camera in a little higher price range.
Summary: I tried it a few times and it works alright thou nothing esPectacular. Tried take some pics of the full moon (it was a blue moon) and it was impossible. An IPhone seems to do a better job for this. I went on a hike and pics came out pretty good. Does also a good job portraits.
Summary: Owning mulitple Cannon Elph's, I thought I'd give Fujifilm a try. Night and Day comparison. Cannon seems to rule the point and shoot market, rightfully so. Although the zoom works, the quality of the photo is sacrificed. Not so with Cannon. I've researched the web for technical specs and there appear to be detailed work-arounds to problems with this model. Point and Shoot ease is not this camera's forte.
Summary: Generally I use a large format digital SLR but it doesn't exactly fit in my purse. This camera works fine for spur-of-the-moment shots, but I find that the menus are difficult to use. Because all the selections are activated with a touch screen, it's difficult to make quick changes because one has to wade through various menu options. Plus, I have a tendency to accidentally press the video button which is dangerously close to the shutter.
Summary: Alright guys, so I got this camera (in red) for Christmas 2011. I've taken a few pictures with it and am loving the image quality. Not the best quality but for a cheap point and shoot pocket camera it's better than I expected it to be. I've recorded 2 videos with it, 1 in SD to test the standard quality as well as in HD (just earlier today) to test the quality of high def. Now I must say for a cheap camera the video quality is awesome.
A better gift to replace a camera phone, but not a great camera for high picture quality

Summary: I originally had the Kodak EasyShare V550 5MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom (Black) Then my wife wanted something with more "umph" and so we bought the Sony Cybershot DSCW90 8.1MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom and Super Steady Shot (Black) Both previous cameras were based on ratings in Consumer Reports (1-year auto-renewal) and we've been happy with both cameras. Actually I still use the Kodak for my eBay auctions and we use the Sony for everything else.
Not a good choice unless you are VERY still or use a tripod

Summary: So first off the pros: It is small, skinny and a fun color. It has TONS of features and options and those features are generally well thought out and easy enough to use. It has an internal lens so you prevent the number was cause of digital camera failure. Cons: The internal lens (think tiny light capturing) combined with cheaper components means you need more light to take decent photos and to be still as a rock (as the Fujifilm tries to slow picture taking down to...
Summary: After seeing this in one of the tabloid newspapers, I decided to purchase the camera as they were advertising it has a good compact camera. How disappointed I was, the screen was far too small compared to other models, I found the controls and buttons too fiddly to use. In the end I couldn't use it and ended up buying a much better Samsung camera!!
