Replaced my stolen Canon Powershot A570IS with this baby and indeed, it works great on low light. ISO 1600 is like using ISO 400 on the canon. Battery life is good for me. The rechargeable AA batts on my canon does not get me anywhere within 100 shots with flash. Pocketable Problems: Canon takes better pictures outdoors. The colors are solid and crisp and Canon does not blow up highlights...Pisses me off at times that the background darkens the face of the subject no matter what settings I ...

This is my third digital camera and the one I like most. The focus and exposure is very accurate, though -1/3 exposure setting sometimes helps to get more details in the sky. I do not think the exposure curve is so steep as some users write about - I used the camera in june in Thunisia and I got many shades of bright, white walls of the buildings there in the sun and deetails in dark shades at the same time. I used Sony W17 - 7.2 Mp camera before and I think Fuji F20 is better. Macro mode ...

Great bang-for-the-buck. Takes better indoor pictures than other P&S cameras because it defaults at ISO 800, allowing more ambient light. The sensor is larger than other cameras in its class, leading to much better low-light performance. *Only* image quality issue is some excessive purple fringing in high-contrast scenes.

Overall a great little camera for that "I'm lazy!" state when you just want Point 'n Shoot. Excellent flash performance with very fast recharge per shot, and construction is solid for a little cam like this. Lighting is very even and well-metered. Colours lively and attractive. Very nice fast AF, even in low light. Good non-flash performance if you need it. Problems: - Typical Fuji menu system (too complicated for such a camera- and user market) - Super CCD effect can be unsettling if you ...

I've owned this camera for about 2 weeks. I purchased it on the basis of the reported low light capability. At this point I am pleased with it's ability comparing it with other more expensive cameras I have owned in the past. I'll provide a link with some sample shots taken just before dark this afternoon. http://picasaweb.google.com/wptitus/FinepixF20PhotoSamples Problems: none

+ Great high ISO performance. 2 steps cleaner than average compacts. + Superb IQ and resolution for a 6M camera. + Excellent detail at ISO 100. Same or better than my 8M Panasonic Fz18 and way better than Canon Powershot A710 with 7M. + Excellent low light movies. Can record movies in very dark environments. Though see issues below. + Small and lightweighted. Fits jeans pocket easily. + Stylish and great build quality- - No image stabilasation. I´d say 50% of shots <1/60s have at least signs ...

Previous cameras: Olympus c310, and various film SLR's. I got this for its good reviews in high iso /low light situations after being quite annoyed with my old olympus digital for stuffing up a few lowish light once in a lifetime shots! Anyway, compared to that, I have found the Fuji quite quick to use in most situations, and pretty good in low light. It feels solid and is small enough to carry around easily. It's excellent value for money. The movie mode seems to work pretty well, but you ...

Hello, I own the F20 now for 3 month and did about two thousands pictures and many dozen videos. If you have enough light the autofocus of the cam works very well and you get nice to perfect pictuers. BUT the lowlight capabilities of this realy superb CCD sensor are completly razed by the very bad lowlight focusing abilities of the F20. So nearly every second low light picture is totaly unsharp even if you foucus carefully. Interestingly lowlight focousing seems not to be a problem if you us ...

i use the f20 set to manual mode with -1/3 ev, multi exposure and center af focus with excellent results in bright light. low light however, is where this camera truly excels. i can now get low light pictures without using flash. real nice to have that option. Problems: the auto and scene modes overexpose in bright light and the required exposure compensation of -1/3 is only available in manual mode. xd cards cost more and are slower than sd cards.

No image stabilization (this enforces too high ISO), no wide-angle and no manual control of sharpness, contrast or color saturation. The user interface hides too much in menus.
