"If your fujifilm happens to need a part fujifilm will not carry any parts for this camera"on by olympus720
Pros this camera is really bad
Cons really bad,really bad
Summary i bought this camera thought it was alright for a beginner but when i only had it for 3 days after i just bought it in california and i dropped it in the sand by accident.Then I sent it to a camera service to get repaired and they had to send it to fujifilm to get the part and fujifilm said they don't carry the part so it can't be fixed,and if they did have the part it would cost as much as what I paid for the camera....lesson don't get a fujifilm ever ever.ever......
Pros really easy to use, not many knobs to deal with
Cons dark blur in lens
Summary This is my first digital camera. I love it! There aren't many confusing knobs that I've seen on other cameras. My mother owns another brand and it is so confusing to work. This camera is simple, if you want to view your pictures, simply slide the bar in the back. To change settings, just press the menu buttons. It was so easy to use, I didn't even use the user manual. The only issues I have had so far is that is it's a battery drainer but if you get rechargeable batteries, it isn't a problem. The other issue has confused me. There is a blurry small circle in the top right side of the screen. It isn't on the lens itself. I believe it is between lenses so I can't clean it. Other than that, I find it to be a great camera for either the first time users or experienced users. It is small and can fit in a pocket.
"Great Camera!"on by Capt Ajax
Pros Price, Ease of use,
Cons XD card, provided software, Fuji support
Summary I've had 2 of these cameras over the past 4 years or so. The first one I got as a present and it worked fine for a year until the buttons began sticking. I sent it in to Fuji and paid for repair on my on dine (warranty expired). They charged me $60.00 and sent it back to me in the same condition...I had to mail it to them a second time and when I got it back the buttons were still sticking. I found another one for a fair price on ebay and have had it for about 2 years. Iv'e had no problems with it at all. The only gripes I have about the gereral use of the camera is that it uses the XD card, and Fugi Support is not so great. Also, the software that comes with the camera can be confusing and is not as user friendly as some others. Picture quality and ease of use is great.
"Too many problems"on by kel3120
Pros Easy to use
Cons Blurry photos in low light
Summary I received this camera as a gift about a year and a half ago. This was my first digital camera and I had no problems learning how to use it.
My biggest concern with this camera is when photos are taken in low light situations. Photos will come out blurry as if the camera is taking the picture really slow (if people are moving, you'll see their motion in the photo). It happens often, but not all of the time which is really annoying. I was really disappointed last Christmas when all of my photos turned out this way and I could not figure out how to make the pictures clear.
Another problem with this camera is the fact that the viewfinder does not show about 25% of what the actual photo will be. I do not like to waste time cropping photos when I could just line everything up while I take them. I tend not to use the LCD screen because it eats away at the batteries.
I am glad that I did not spend my own money on this camera and am waiting until I can afford a better one. If the price is right, I would recommend this camera only for very casual use.
Pros GREAT+++++++ battery life//great zoom///great nice screen
Cons Not really any just minor such as very very very close ups are kinda blury.
Summary This camera is perfect for anyone, I have been reading reviews that they dont like this and stuff, but its a great camera for the price. CNET always over implies its opinions about the quality. The yare always likebasicbasicbasic. thats all they ssay. This camera is a Great camera. Especially the battery life compared to other cameras. Also, the screen doesnt go blank after taken one pic, it starts and reload very fast.Updated
