Summary: I was disappointed - it looks a lot cooler online than in person. It feels cheap when holding. I took a few pictures and picture quality looks great, but I returned it (despite the amazing price) and went back to using my Panasonic LX5.
Handsome, quirky pocket camera hampered by poor video mode.

Summary: I really wanted to like this camera. It's pocketable, stylish and fun to use. The manual zoom is great for manual style photography and it's quick unlike a slow power zoom on the Panasonic LX7.
Summary: I bought this camera while it was on sale for $179 at Amazon. I like it's style initially, but after a week of use, it developed a gap between the upper lens cicular part and its body. I ended up returning it. Then, I bought a Canon S110 white.
A very good looking camera that also takes good pictures -- lens control errors after 5 months

Summary: I purchased the camera from Amazon.com last week and the build quality of the camera seems decent. It generates a little noise when turning the zoom lens at some focal point and I can here a little object moving sound from inside the camera when lightly shacking it in picture viewing mode.
Summary: It's a 5 star camera: it takes great pitures, it has fun features, it's awesome in low light, works as advertised. Problems is, after a few months of use, it gave a "Lens Error" error message and stopped working.
Summary: I had just recently purchased the Nikon Coolpix P510 and loved it but I was really looking for a top notch camera that I could stick in my jacket pocket or leave in the car for spur of the moment pics. I used the camera on 3 seperat occassions in the last week.
Nice concept but not very easy to use as a pocket camera

Summary: I love the way Fuji put this camera together- the vintage look, film simulation mode and such. One thing I don't like about it is that it takes too much work to turn on the camera. You might be able to turn on the camera with one hand but most of the time it might require both hands.
Summary: Writing from the perspective of a point-and-shoot user, I can only compare it to other cameras I've been using - the Sony HX20V and Fujifilm F800 EXR. You know by now it's a strange beast to turn on - you twist, pull out, and twist again the lens. There are several reminders on how to do this.
