I would purchase from this company again
from Columbus, Indiana
I use the camera to take pictures...which is a hobby. I also use the video to capture the Open Mic Night at my church
from Medina, Ohio
Great camera for low light areas, like clubs or outdoors on an overcast day. Easy to operate.Plus the bundle package had many useful items
I have owned several Fujifilm cameras and they all have performen great. I haven't had a chance to use this on very much yet but hte pictures and videos that I have taken turned out great.
Best bridge camera bang for the buck!!!
from East Tennessee
Excellent bang for your buck. Simple user interface and image quality is very good. Zoom offers excellent range and IS function makes the images crisp without noise. Highly recommended.
Don't look any further
from Western New York
I bought this as a replacement for an S5100 that I bought in 2004. The S4200 takes great pictures, has a good "feel", uses 4 "AA" batteries (no need to buy another proprietary one). It comes with a software disc, but I'm still able to use the older Fujifilm software (and other photo programs on my computer) to download pictures to my computer/storage discs. The image stabilization seems quite good. The shutter speed is a bit slow...but OK. I think, for the price, this is a great buy.

Pleased with my new camera
from ST LOUIS, MO
This is my second Fujifilm camera. I thought my first one was great but this one is much improved and better. Only had it a short time but the pictures I have taken so far are great. A lot of the features are the same from camera to camera with a few new ones to get used to. Overall it is as easy to use and the much longer zoom lenz gives me more options for close-ups. One feature that I think is super is the SRAUTO setting. The AUTO setting gives you easy use but the SRAUTO setting does so much more, including face recognition and automatically adusting for all lighting conditions. One thing that takes some getting used to is that I now have to manually open the flash. On my last camera the flash automatically opened if needed. But this is miner. Also have to be careful to take the lens cap off before turning the camera on or could damage camera. I've only had the camera for a month now and am totally satisfied with it and would recommend to anyone looking for a great easy to use camera.
ONE FOR THE MONEY
By REV THE PREACHER
from CORAM, NEW YORK
I FOUND THIS TO BE VERY VERSITILE IN ALL OF ITS APPLICATIONS.
Good value at an affordable price
from Tierra Verde, Florida
This camera is perfect for someone who needs both a HD video and a digital still camera.The price point is low enough to be affordable for most users and the image quality is excellent. The instucton book which comes with the camera is very poorly worded in English, and the printing(very small fonts and light gray print instead of black) makes reading the instructions a little difficult. It would be hard to understand for a first time user of a digital camera. That said, its a great value for the money!
good for beginners
