Fujifilm FinePix S3000 Z review

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 cam is MIJ too!!

Problems:

I have not encountered any problems but I almost did not buy this cam because of a few bad reviews on the zoom and i like zooming! When 1st. i got the came and experimented with the zoom max'd out i got blurry pics and focus hunt as i was shooting in dimmly lit rooms at night. I turned some light on scene and got focus lock and excellent pics ALL THE TIME so remember that when taking Max'd out ZOOM'D pics INDOORS, you need a little light. A hot shoe would be nice.
