Excerpt: This digital camera from Fuji Film is part old school and part new tech. The Fine Pix S 700 Digital Camera is simple to use and easy to understand. If you are willing to spend the time reading and understanding the enclosed user manual you will be out taking pictures of your favorite beaches or yard birds in very little time. Like cameras from a simpler time, the Fine Pix S 700 has the standard features which you would expect.
Summary: Ok I bought this camera as my first digital camera.... Ive always been one for film... now at first I loved the quality of the pictures and the sceen is a great size.... my only problem is now im looking for something a little more pro..... its great and light weight... Is wonderful for snap shots and vacation....but im def. going to need to up grade to get a more pro look soon.
Pros: good size screen.... good micro (when you can get it to focus.), good on batterys. you can get some pretty nice pictures with it. has good settings for sun set. ect.
Cons: of corse its not pro.... sometimes the micro wont focus. its not always the best with lighting.
Great LCD, Veiw-finder and ISO, auto focus defective.

The s700 lacks true image stabilazition, and does not match previous Fuji models on low light photos

Summary: After downloading the full PDF manual (which you can find on the U.S. fuji site) and then auditioning this camera in person for about 2 hours while taking over a hundred test shots, I finally decided to pass on purchasing the Fuji s700, and went with a Kodak z612 instead. The two cameras offer very similar features at about the same price, but the Kodak z612 has a wider 12:1 zoom range (with really great optical performance) and it has TRUE image stabilization (which the...
Excerpt: I liked this camera for a time. It is large and doesn't take the best photos, but it looked high end, so I put up with it (I'm a snob like that). The camera ended up going to work with my husband because I wanted something smaller and more portable if I was going to take lousy pics anyway. It is better than a camera phone, more or less... not a great image though. There are probably a lot of functions I never used... maybe the camera is too advanced for me?
