Good: good photos
Comment: i love this camera, i love to take photos and upgraded to this from a normal small camera. i am still not sure on all the functions and the meanings of them but all my photos i have taken have come out really well,i so enjoy taking photos of sunsets,waves rain flowers trees ect and have been experimenting loads,any tips would great people as im just a begininer
Good: very good zoom , quiet good pictures in good light!,
Bad: very poor in low light conditions , also manual mode is a poor feature on it as the focusing ring does'nt work on mine !! Video mode is quiet poor too as it needs alot of light ,other wise it can't focus on a frame .
Comment: I guess you get what you pay for in a camera . Being honest I think this camera is over rated as far as quality is concerned ! It has alot of different settings , maybe too many for the general photographer . as you would need a course in how to manage it in difficult situations . Focusing seems to be the one of the biggest problems I am having with it , to get clear pictures at different distances from you . At the moment I can't seem to get the focusing ring to work for me when its in the Manual mode . Maybe it's gone faulty .
Good: great zoom and ease of use
Bad: not great in poor light
Comment: Great quality camera. I like the zoom and multitude of features.
Comment: I have the S2950 at present, reading this review makes me think I would love to upgrade.
Good: Incredible manual zoom; takes amazing pictures in good light, and good pictures even in low light.
Bad: Bigger and heavier than any camera I've had before, so not as good for "casual" photos; Video seems to struggle with focus at times.
Comment: I love it. I didn't realise what a difference spending more money could make to my pictures - which might sound stupid, but this camera makes it blindingly obvious how average from from previous cameras really were.
Good: easy to control
Bad: slow focus
Comment: no comment
Good: price & specification
Comment: it is nice...
Good: Value for money
Bad: LCD screen not fully articulated
Comment: Why cant' Fuji, (or all camera manufacturers,) standardize on power-packs and lens threads?
GPS would have been great.
Finally, could Fuji, please come up with a more accurate battery indicator. This is my third Fuji, (about my tenth camera,) and none of them have had a reliable battery indicator.
Comment: qual é o valor?
Comment: eu quero saber quanto custa no cartao de credito?
