I'm reviewing the S2980, maybe is quite different from the Finepix *50 and the *90 but specs are very similar. well I just bought this compact bridge camera for my girlfriend  who wanted to take some decent pics "maybe sometimes also in manual or not-fully-automatic modes". she was bored of her old compact camera point-and-shoot (think it's an old tiny sony with 8mpx) and asked me to look for a bigger, reflex-like, more stable, with a decent optical zoom, camera. i'm not a professional ...

I have read all the user and tester assessments and all I can say is I am happy they did not put me off buying this camera. It is really compact and is comfortable in the hand. The picture quality is much better than I had expected after all I read. The focusing is slow and I do not know why as I have an old Fuji S5600 which is very fast in every respect. The 2950 is smaller, lighter and has a wider zoom range. Also the pictures are better due to the higher pixel count if you want to crop. ...

The camera is compact, light and very handy. The auto-focus requires lots hard work since it confined to backdrop variations. The 18x optical zoom is awesome for shooting still objects but if you are planning to take pictures of a sports even or birds it is rather slow.The viewfinder is extremely good. The camera is extremely user friendly with a good power management. A pack of duracell alkaline batteries could give you 100 to 150 shots if you are using flash. Overall very good. Problems: sl ...

I was reading some comments about the lens cover of a FUJI S2950 not staying on very good. Mine was the same way. I got it for Fathers day. I called FUJI (joke) I was told they don't have a fix for it yet! I took a small amount of Black RTV (Silicone Seal) and very carefully rubbed a small amount on the inside of the lens cover in 3 different spots and the lens cove appears to be staying on better. I haven't tried walking with around my neck yet. If I have more problems I have more RTV. Make ...

At first glance, the Fujifilm Finepix S2950 is really a very well designed compact superzoom. It sports a nice to hold DSLR-esque body which is also nicely compact in frame. Upon using it, one will find a considerably user-friendly interface which is unfortunately laggy at times. As for taking pictures, the camera is capable of taking good shots, but there is a big question mark over the success rate because it does have its problems such as slow/inconsistent auto-focus, noisy pictures above ...
