Superzoom camera at the price for "normal" camera. What I like: +picture quality is good, pics are sharp, colors are real (best quality I ever had with 3 megapixel camera) +very easy to use (menus) +6xzoom +for less than 250$ excellent camera +AA-batteries or rechargeable +sharp pics with macro mode -only ISO 100 without flash -ISO 100 and 3s shutter are not enough for night scenes -no manual focus available -no manual ISO-settings available -movies are without sound, only 10 pics/second, ...

I legally stole this cam for 169.00 at circuit city! good balance of features and 6xs opti zoom is nice and way above a typical P&S cam. Focuses quick, menu not all cluttered up with useless stuff so scrolling thru is quick and power conserving, excellent manual is all English-hooray!! Good Software and has not corupt my PC. Has a .3 meg pix switch for email pixs-great! Battery life is good. Large LCD but i use the EVF most. I think this is least expensive digi-cam i seen with a EVF and this ...

I have used S3000 for several months now. Overall, not a bad camera for its price, but next time I buy a digital camera, this model will not be my first choice. Problems: Slow data storing and very weak autofocus indoors, especially while using the zoom.

I am changing a few opinions about this camera because of the time I have had to use it. At first use the camera seems very lightweght with a cheap plastic feel. I wouln't reccomend buying the camera if you are looking for a simple point and shoot because compared to ALOT of other point and shoots in the same price range, especially now, are alot better in build and price. Although in outdoor or high light situations, the camera takes great pics, in low light or indoor settings where there is ...

This camera is GARBAGE, but good for a first time user. However if you ever had a taste of a better camera... this is garbage. Why you may ask? One simple reason. The auto focus on this camera is a piece of garbage. There's no IR illuminator to help the camera focus in dark situations and you just can't get a good photo like that without some IR built in. In otherwords, you can't use this camera in anything but bright light. Sure, your picture might come out if you manually adjust your ...

The Fujifilm FinePix S3000 Z has proven to be a great camera, there are many here that say it doesn’t focus well or work in certain conditions, but if you read the directions the camera will work above any expectations. I was a professional photographer or many years, and picked this out after much research. It is not the camera of my dreams or a professional camera but that aside it is an excellent camera. You have to read and understand how auto focus and auto exposure works and that being ...

Overall, I am very happy with this camera. The pictures are sharp, with bright natural colors, and excellent contrast. I've taken over a thousand pictures since I got the camera. Here is what I've found: SCENERY & SKYLINES Daytime photos are excellent. The 6x optical zoom is very nice. All my photos are in focus with no blurring. I don't remember any photos being out of focus. Of course, you must understand how auto-focus cameras work. You must point the camera at the subject you want in ...

Worthless P.O.S. The autofocus on this misses 80% of the time. A flat wall 10 feet away in medium lighting was out of focus at all zoom levels, with or without the shroud attached, with or without focus freeze. With other subjects, the camera would attempt to focus but move from blurry to clear to blurry, passing right through the right spot. I tried this with 2 different S3000s, same results with each. I give this camera a 1.0 on everything because if it won't focus, it's USELESS!!! Prob ...

I bought this camera as it went on sale for $399 from $499 (CDN). The 3.2MP and 6x optical zoom were definite selling features. Anyway I have to say that I am very impressed. It is my first digital camera but it outdoes any analog camera I have ever had. It works great outdoors and is OK indoors. 3.2 MP is more than enough. I suggest buying a big memory card (xD pic card) as at full resolution the images are +800K. Also buy NiMH rechargeables. The EVF works great outdoors and is a nice ...
