    This was my first digital cam. I really like it. Ive hesitated buying a digital camera because i hate the lag times in between shots, and before shots, and startup... This camera hardly has lag (except flash to flash pics)

    im very happy with it.

    I owned the Fuji FinePix 550 and I agree that it offered a lot of bang for the buck. The picture quality was excellent and the movie mode was very impressive also.
    However, I think everyone considering buying this camera should know that it does not offer a focus assist lamp and as a result, it has a very hard time (read impossible) of focusing in low light conditions. Also, the LCD screen is nearly impossible to see in dimly lit rooms. Forget about using this camera in a church or at a wedding reception. I returned the camera for this reason.

    Ok... I've read the first sentence...I'm already annoyed/ticked to post....but hey, It's just me.


    "Fujifilm stands out amongst other digital camera companies because of its research in sensor technology."

    Like their earlier cameras that say 4mp, but are really 3mp? (I remeber it having to do with some sort of pixel shifting....can't remember exactly, but that always made me distrust fuji digi-cams).

    Anyhow....I'm sure this is nice enuf of a camera...as I"ll soon find out from reading.
