    I have an S8200 and when I put it to Advance mode on Pro Low Light which takes 4 exposures, however it changes my resolution into a 3264x2448 and I can't set it back to 16-9 which is a higher ...
  • Created discussions ISO
    Why use a high ISO? Wouldn't it be better to use a low ISO and just use Aperture and shutter speed for whatever you need to get rid of the grainy look? So use a tripod instead of a high ISO unless ...

  • Created discussions Aperture
    About 30 years ago I had a camera that would give me an f/1.2 to f/22. Can you get that with a digital camera with one lens?
  • Created discussions Secured manual
    I have a manual for the s8200 and when I study it I can't highlight anything because it is Secured and some of my manuals aren't so is there anyway I can get a s8200 manual I can put highlights on?
  • Created discussions s2500 vs s8200
    I bought the Fujifilm FinePix S2550 4 1/2 years ago at $258 and it's selling now for $244 and I bought the Fujifilm FinePix S8200 a year ago for $200 and it's selling for $169 and I buy everything ...
  • Created discussions Crop factor
    I had an expensive camera about 30 years ago and non digital of course. If I understand crop factor, when I take my Fuji s8200 digital camera and take a picture I am only getting about 65% of what ...
  • Replied in D3200
    I decided not to get the D3200. I did some reading on the dSLR ‘s and I’m not a professional so I don’t want to get into the dSLR cameras. I’m interested in superzoom because I want to take ...
  • Replied in D3200
    Thank You for the advice. I'm book marking this camera and I will do a lot of studying on it. It's got to be much better than my Fuji 8200.
  • Replied in D3200
    Wouldn't it be better to get a camera with a large zoom than to get a camera with a 3x or 5x zoom then buy another lens for it to get a more powerful zoom?
  • Replied in AUTO vs SRAUTO
    When I set it to "P" I'm alway getting f2.9. Is there a reason for that or do I need to set it. I also set my ISO at 100 which should be good?
  • Replied in D3200
    It sounds like the D3200 isn't what I want. How do you calculate the 18-55mm lens on D3200 is 27-83mm equivalent?
  • Replied in AUTO vs SRAUTO
    I'm a newbi and if I need to choose one for general pictures which one would be best and why. when I start to know what I'm doing then I can choose manual.
  • Created discussions D3200
    The D3200 has a 18-55mm so why would I pay $500 for a camera that only has a 3X Zoom?  I'm always having a hard time fitting the picture in so would the 18mm have a wider angle than a typical ...
  • Created discussions AUTO vs SRAUTO
    I have a S8200 and I'm not sure what the difference is between the AUTO vs SRAUTO are when I should choose which one?
  • Created discussions Christmas Lights
    I have an s100 and what would be the best setting to take pictures of the 5,000 small Christmas lights I put on my house?
  • I put my camera on auto and SP auto and they still came out blurred. This camera take good pictures but I still can't take Christmas light pictures. I can just take Christmas light pictures with ...
  • Tonight I'll put my camera on auto and see what happens.
  • This is the kind of snapshots I can do holding my Nikon S100 in my hand but with my Fuji s8200 all I get is blur with a tripod and even if I use all the settings it still might not come out right ...
  • I'm sorry, it's not a night mode it's a Night portrait and night landscape like you said. I'm new at this and I took my pictures at night portrait and they came out great with the Nikon. I took ...
