Best price and performance and take care of the camera :)

Summary: Best price and performance for a 16MP camera. I have always hated the plastic latch for batteries and SD card. I have owned 3 of these FinePix cameras over the years. I broke the plastic latch on the first one and I dropped the second one denting the exterior of lens motion apparatus.

Summary: I have owned three Fuji cameras and been happy with all of them. No quite so for this model, but still working to learn the operational modes. My picture quality not what I thought would be but again still working with the modes to this camera.
Summary: The camera is light, easy to use and takes great photos with the resolution that I was expecting. My only real gripe is that the camera allows itself to be turned on when the lens cap is still on, but it must then be shut down, the cap removed and then turned on again. the flash unit seems a bit flimsy, but I don't use it that much. Overall, I'm very pleased with this camera, especially given the purchase price which was very reasonable.
Summary: I had an earlier version of this same camera and loved it. Unfortunately, it got knocked off a table and the zoom broke. I bought this one thinking it would work the same and for the most part it does. The shutter speed is fast enough and the light is good. My only complaint is that the panoramic feature is a joke. It worked on the older model and I used it a lot of work, but on this model everything bends.
Summary: I have had this camera for a few weeks and I really love it. I enjoy taking photos, but I am no professional. I wanted more than a point and shoot camera and less than a high end camera that would have a steep learning curve. This camera I was using right out of the box. It is very straight forward to figure out, though I haven't used all of the features. And, of course, the price was right.
Summary: So far I do like the camera fine. I just have not had it long enough to really know my full response. Thanks for your interest. Contact me later and I will tell you then what my feelings are about the camera.
