David, Burlington, Washington Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
At 10 meg the camera has very clear images. Extreme close-up capabilities, I have taken clear picture with the subject touching the glass of the lens. love it. With the same lens I get quite good telephoto pictures. The shape of the camera is very easy to hold, you can honestly get a firm grip on the camera. The dual view finder is great. The large screen on the back is clear but the same image in a conventional electronic view finder is great. The batteries last a long time, even if I use the flash in 10% of the pictures. The ability to take pictures in low light conditions without the use of flash is startling. It takes good movies, and the many ways you can manipulate the images before and after taking pictures is wonderful, and it's all built in. Electronic digital cameras don't make noise so Fugi makes the camera make noise so you know when your picture has been taken. This sound can be turned off so others don't have to know or be bothered/distracted by the noise. I have had several rather good digital cameras but the number of pictures I could take was limited. There were greater capacity chips but my other cameras would choke on them if I used a biger than 2 gig chip. With the Fugi I can easily use an 8 gig chip and capture my whole summer on one chip. This camera is a simple as a point and shoot, but it has functions that go way beyound the price tag, You will not know all the functions in a week of steady use, yet a child can use it well right away.
Bad points:
Although not a tiny camera, with my big hands, I find myself pushing a few buttons I didn't intend to. There is a delay between pushing the shutter button and the camera taking the picture. I find if I push the shutter button half way to pre-focus the lens, when I do push the shutter in earnest, it is much faster.

Good points:
I have read mixed reviews on this camera before purchasing, some good some bad. I myself have found this camera to be excellent, features and settings are very easy to use. Takes amazing pics and has a fantastic zoom. I have yet to master night time pics but getting there, I absolutely love my camera.
Bad points:
batteries, would be better if you didn't have to use AA ones.

Alan, Plymouth Keen amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Excellent picture quality. The viewfinder as well as the LCD is a big help.
Bad points:
Like most cameras, it's virtually impossible to see anything - including any camera settings - in the LCD screen in bright light.. Although the viewfinder is a big help, the view is very small

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very easy to use and its price is very competitive considering its features and good quality.
Bad points:
Its internal memory is rather small and a memory card, which has to be purchased separately, is indispensable. It consumes a lot of power and one has to replace or recharge the batteries after several hours of service.
