A basic yet alround performer.
I started with finepix 9600 in 2006. It is an alrounder in the past four years. But this one is a colt. With P/A/S/M it is an excellent instrument for day in day out. Image stebilizer is a boon for super zoom. What more one should want? Magic filtres? Miniaturizations? Creative filters? Once in a while or once in a blue moon one may need it. While recent Avaters of long zooms are automatic only, this one will be at a different level. 4 AA battries are bonus than the camera specific slick lithium ion batteries. So FujiFilm FinePix S4000 (FinePix S4050) is a definite winner.
