Fujifilm FinePix S3000 Z review

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, only 320x240
-noise at ISO 160-200 (only with flash available)

All in all good and cheap superzoom cam, good pic quality.
What I miss with this camera, are the manual features like manual focus, ISO-Settings and full manual exposure settings.
Unfortunately, successor S3100 is not improved at my points of criticism

Problems:

hotpixels at warm conditions
