I have found Fuji camera products, even the inexpensive ones, to be of very high quality. This one was advertised at a reduced price so I thought it a very good buy. I've only just begun to explore it, but I'm very pleased. I don't have any prints from it yet. Read More

A peach of a camera

by Ken B. on 12/21/2012

I was looking for a point and shoot camera, as well as one that can be used manually, when necessary. Most of the pictures I've done so far are point and shoot type. I like the clear 3 inch screen on the back. It takes pretty good pictures in low light situations. Flash works quite well. For the sale that was on it, $100 off, it is a camera that produces quite sharp pictures, with the 14 pixels. Read More
