I have owned a number of different compact cameras over the years and a lot of them have been disappointing, even those that were 12 or 14 megapixels and great optical zoom seemed to fail me in a lot of situations. But Fujifilm cameras are different, particularly their finepix range, as they are of a very high quality at a low price and have rarely given me a less than brilliant picture in any setting or light.
This camera is 14 megapixels with a 5x zoom lens, and has a 3 inch screen which is brilliant for viewing the photos you have taken! You don't often find a screen that large on a digital camera.
It has a range of shooting modes including Indoor or Outdoor Portrait, Scenic or Macro. This definitely helps to get an excellent quality photograph whatever you're shooting.
The only problem I have with this particular camera, which I have never experienced with any other Fujifilm Camera, is that I quite often find that if my photo subject is in really low light I quite often get a lot of noise in the photograph (sand like, photo seems very dotty/low quality), but this really is the only thing I could complain about!
I recently purchased this camera for a holiday and have taken around 200 shots without any problems.
As the price of this camera is so low (a meer £75!) I did have my doubts over quality as that is extremely cheap for a 14MP camera (especially with high def image capture at 16:9 and video capture with sound at 720p) - however, for the money it does the job perfectly and im happy with the results. Five times optical zoom works really well and shots are clear and defined. Camera is light but seems well built.
Large (3 inch) LCD screen is great and is clear even on bright, sunny days. Camera is very easy to use, Macro mode is extremely useful and shots without flash still in great quality.
Battery life isn't incredible, but then most digital camera go through batteries very quickly!
Also comes with easy to install software and USB hardware so transferring your pictures is an absolute doddle!
Overall, a very good buy and a bargain to boot!
