Confirmed purchaser Keen amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Long Zoom
Takes AA batteries
Bad points:
When you have face detection on and trying to take non people pictures in auto mode focus is centre of the frame, it doesn't compensate to get best focus across the frame.

Confirmed purchaser Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good looking, 18x zoom very useful, images are well focussed, colour balance is good. I like the way the extending lens will push off the lens cap when the camera is turned on.
Bad points:
Doesn't come with a case. I wonder how long it will keep working for, because the price seems so low for such a high quality product.

Confirmed purchaser serious amatuer!

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Picture Qaulity is not compromised by the technology as with the more recent models. Good navigation features make this camera an excellent piece of kit for the amateur. Quality of pictures is great and the zoom holds the detail well.
Bad points:
Needs 4 AA batteries which last for over 100 pics with flash but recommend re-chargable AA batteries to save money.

steve, Barrow-in-Furness Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Being a big fan of Fuji cameras i can't see a single fault in this camera. It has everything i want/need. The extra optical zoom took a little bit of getting used to, for ease of use i can't rate it highly enough and the images taken are of a very high quality.

Keith, Brighton Obssesed with immense quality

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The auto setting has many good features which allow you to just zoom in and let the auto focus take away much of the work. As a novice user, I have found myself using the guides that came with the software and hints and tips which is just a link on the internet you have to sign up for. Still very good advice on that. I do like the battery drain feature which helps to maintain battery life for rechargeable batteries to complete their cycle rather than recharge when they simply get low. The weight of the camera is easy to live with and fits in my pocket, but I would feel comfortable putting it in some designed storage to protect it
Bad points:
No colour temperature manual settings. Not sure if the camera can take general abuse that life has to throw at it. The strap loops I'm not to sure how they will hold out, but they do well for standard use. Could do with more accessories such as a bag to hold it in to carry around. The digital zoom feature isn't great, as they aren't on any camera. The 18x optical zoom is really all that is needed, I just disable digital zoom.
