Affordable, full-featured & versatile
By Eastern PA Shutterbug
from Hellertown, PA
This is my all-purpose camera, used for outdoor, portrait, theater and event shooting. Its controls are, for the most part, intuitive and accessible. It has everything from an idiot-proof point and shoot mode to full manual or aperture- or shutter-priority exposure controls. I think many dedicated amateur photographers will be surprised by the quality results, features and easy operation of this camera, given its low price.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Well featured camera, good quality shots
from Rockland Maine
This is a very full featured camera, as well as full over ride - all manual use if you like. I am used to Film SLR and it took me a while to figure out how to use many of the features. Ended up two evenings with the owners manual and have learned maybe 90% of what it can do and how. For me it many steps were tricky. Love how much it offers and the price. Be sure and hold button half down to focus then full to shoot or it won't focus a shot. Easy thing to miss. Full zoom requires a tripod or setting against something. I am a jeweler and this camera shoots excellent very up close shots! Up to 1" away. Nice. And will even photograph chemtrails at night by moonlight. Wow! This was my first leap to a higher quality digital and the price was the same as my junk old little camera from a few years ago. Would best recommend for someone who knows a little more about camera's and wants a full featured camera but is overwhelmed by prices. This was a good buy.

Fujifilm cameras are the hidden secret
from Cartersville, Ga.
I use this product for everything, I have researched and this camera does everything the bigger ones can but the pixel rate and the zoom are what limits it abilities to compete with the big boys!!!!!

ditial camera to take pictures
We got a lemon
from Morton, Pa
A very nice camera that stopped taking pics in 7 days. Beach customer service was great and we had a replacement in 5 days with free return shipping. Even Fuji makes mistakes so I hope the new camera will last. I know Beach will make it right if not.
Best value point and shoot camera
This is the best "point and click" camera we've had. The picture quality is excellent even when shooting pictures right out of the box and not tinkering with any settings. There are plenty of settings with which to tinker, though, if you are so inclined.

I bought this for myself. So far I have not had that much time to really get to use it. I did take it with me to visit my kids and grand kids. I was not happy with how most of my pictures turned out. I'm hoping that was my fault cause ,like I said I have not had much time to play with it and find the right settings.
