Fujifilm FinePix S3000 Z review

Bought this when it first became available at military exchanges overseas (I work at a US Army base in Germany) a couple years ago. I was very pleased with the image quality and ease of use, but I was unsatisfied with the effectiveness of the pop-up flash indoors and don't understand why they even bother including such a tiny (16MB) xD picture card... i would've been willing to pay $50 more to have a 256MB card included in the box.


I left it in a hot car and the power switch melted slightly and has popped off on a regular basis ever since (incredibly irritating). I also accidentally dropped the camera and the hinge on the media door broke, so I had to tape it shut to use the camera. The hinge was my fault, but I feel the switch should not have been so easily damaged. I finally decided to upgrade and bought a FinePix E550 last month, so I could use the same media.
