This camera is FANTASTIC! I bought my 6800Zoom on May 4th 2001 after researching the digital camera market for 2-3 months. My camera was stolen on May 5th 2006, which led me to find this website for reviews. In those 5 years I took 8,608 photos, audio & video files! I calculate that I used the webcam feature for some 2,000 Hours! I even hooked it up as a surveillance camera storing the footage on my computer & VCR. I travelled through many countries with temperatures ranging from 0-50 Deg C ...

Have used F6800 for more about 2 years. I really like the photos I took in Tibet using F6800. Color is great! That is the only point I like this camera and is the only reason I chose this camera. http://www.pbase.com/wangjun/tibetpics Problems: Auto focus cannot work correctly sometimes. Manual focus is not practical due to the low resolution of the LCD.

This is no doubt a top end camera. It does produce great picture but I am not sure if the output matches the price tag I paid for it. Since I have had it I have taken 1000+ pics and it has served well. Within the first month of purchse the lens jamed and had to send of to Fuji, but since then has been Ok. Recently I have had problems with the the zoom causing fiziness and black lines on screen when I zoom in and out (movement in Lens). Sometimes the screen blacking out with fuzziness ...

Purchased in June 2001, I've taken over 6000 images. In the beginning this was the best digital I've ever had, images were simply superb, and overall a very easy camera to use, packed full of features. Battery life pretty good, 100 pics easily obtained on a 5 hour full charge. Superb macro shots, and good zoom. Excellent prints obtained at A4 size. Overall very happy, until problems started.... Problems: After almost a year picture quality degraded, with black lines very faint at first on ...

I've had this camera for just over a year. It was exchanged by the dealer due to a lens problem. I received a new one. This one had a view finder problem. Sent it back to fuji and they replaced the view finder system. Now the lens will not come out. The warranty is over. I contacted fuji and they said they could probally give me a 20% discount on the repair. That all said the camera (when it is working) takes beautiful shots. Get the extended warranty. Problems: View finder system,lens ...

I have used the camera now for over 15 months and am still astonished by the quality of the images which I find are far superior to my Canon AE1 bodies with marque lenses. Major disappointment though in the handling, the body is far too slippery, the shutter release at the wrong angle and too close to the edge of the camera for even small hands. Keeping it steady is not easy even though I often use a chest pod. The need to continually move the camera away from my eye (I invariably use the ...

J'ai acheté cette caméra il y a maintenant plus d'un an. Je suis plutôt satisfait. La pile dure assez longtemps, le mode macro est bon, la qualité des images en 3M pixels est excellente, j'aime bien faire des petits films. J'ai pris au dessus de 3000 photos te n'ai pas eu à la faire réparée même si je l'ai échapée par terre une fois. Problems: Les images dans des conditions de faible luminosité sont vraiment mauvaises, le flash aide mais seulement si le sujet est proche.

Definately a good point and click camera. After 6 months of use my camera is still going strong, for any serious use I recommend buying a larger memory card and a spare battery or two. For anyone looking for a fairly simple, high end point and click camera that has the option for extra lenses (I just picked up a wide angle, telephoto and closeup lens set from Tiffen) I would definately recommend this camera. Problems: I carry my camera in a small case and have found that it's worth setting ...

So far, Fuji has fixed my 6800 once and replaced it twice since I bought it in October of 2001. So for me, the camera has been less than reliable mechanically (dust in the CCD, repeated Card Error problems, lens protraction problems). And it's a sad comment on their customer service that every time I talk to them I have to demand to speak to a manager to get any sort of satisfactory result. HOWEVER, despite my woes, the camera (when it works) takes fabulous pics and has gotten raves from lots ...

First digital camera and bought after much research. Camera bought in Sydney just proir to new 601Z so this was run out model. Takes fantastic pics and the hot-synch cradle makes for easy pic transfers. The night shots with the flash are OK but a stronger flash would have been nice. Read a lot about 'red-eye' problem and found that feature didn't help much. Also noticed 'dead pixel' in LCD. has anyone else had this problem? Problems: The 'dead pixel' was reported to the distributer but have ...
