Fujifilm FinePix S3000 Z review

Bought this camera as I liked the shape and fit to the hand as well as the longer than normal zoom. I should have taken more test shots in the store to check image quality.

Far too many shots are not to my liking. Shutter lag is ridiculous on this camera. I always seem to end up with a picture of what came one second after I was viewing when pressing the shutter release.

After a few months of frustration, I gave this to my kid to play with and bought a descent camera; Panasonic FZ-20. Suddenly I am not such a terrible photographer!

Problems:

Shutter lag, blurry pictures. Viewfinder not so good.
