I bought this camera about 2 years ago when it first came out. I payed almost $600 CAN for this camera and 6 months later it dropped to $300, and a year later 5200 came out with the price tag of $300. In other words, I've payed quite a bit for this camera. But I must say I have been very happy with this camera. (I'm sure that i took more than 3000 shots with this camera :D) 10X optical zoom gives the user the versitility they would need for almost all situations. Image quality and AWB was ...

The image quality rivals my Canon D-60 (dSLR). In fact it has better color, contast and shadow detail! Sharp enough for cropped 11 X 14 prints. Excellent feature set and ergonomics. I love the high-speed, back 3 frames for sports shooting. I have the Fuji 1.7 tele-extender and even with that attached I can get sharp prints up to 11 X 14. (A mono-pod is a must.) Overall, for its size and price, this camera packs a punch. I can't imagine traveling without it. Problems: You have to learn to work ...

Not to bad for amatures of photogrphy.Used it for about a year and for me it was a step up after few canon's (A60,A90) cause of DSLR like look.I have to tell you that it is a great camera to practice with and I even decided to keep it as a back up. Problems: NOise.noise,noise,slow start up,missing hot shoue,small LCD just to mention few,but still great buy for the money:)

Great camera. Many features of more expensive cameras for a lesser price. Problems: Manual focus is the only problem.

This camera ROCKS! I bought it in January of 2005 and have very few complaints. Nice big zoom and GREAT lens. Macro mode is good, and colors (except for reds) are excellently reproduced. Noise isn't the best, but for the price it's pretty good. For anybody who wants an inexpensive digital camera that's EXTREMELY versatile. It's a great camera to learn on. I originally owned a Honeywell-Pentax film SLR from the '70s, and this, even though quality isn't quite as good, is a great value. If you ...

I have been using this camera for last two months. The picture quality is very good. Macro mode is just awesome. Manual control of the flash is too good to control the feature, compared to automatic. The usual AA battries is another thing to notice compared to the special battires that comes with the camera, when running out of battery you can just be on with a energizer or duracell battries. Problems: 1.XD card is very costly compared to other memory cards! 2.Manual focus is a joke. Cant ...

I've had the s5500 (as known in South Africe) this lovely camera for a few months now, and totaly happy with it. I've taken over 20 000 shots (Yes, that many), and most are vey good. But you get to learn the limitations after being eith it for a while. I've had experience with lesser cameras form Sony and HP (The worst cameras IMO), but the Fiji has so many features you can grow and learn with. It far exceeded my expectations, and I could't think of a better value peice of kit for the price! ...

amazing for the price, full manual control and even a grandma mode (full auto), produces high quality pictures. Camera feels like high quality pro equipment with price of kodak throwaway... If u turn off the camera, sequential shot will revert back to single shot, minor annoyance for me. This is the best quality picture for the $ at this time IMO.

Kick butt for the price I paid..$209.00... An update.. After almost a year I would say if your looking for an inexpensive digicam and this is available... Get it!! Still gives great shots and is a great cam for the price!! Problems: XD memory.... but others, like compact flash are slow... No focus ring.... or zoom ring... Small EVF and LCD screen... No hot shoe.
