I OWN A NIKON 510 AND THS DOES EVERY THING THE 510 DOES AT 1/3 THE PRICE
Love the image stabilization. Makes it possible to take a 24X zoom picture without a rest or tripod.
This product is a great buy for casual photographers who want something a little bit better than a point-and-shoot, but don't have the funds for a DSLR. It's VERY easy to use. I use this camera to capture daily memories and subjects for PowerPoint presentations for my biology classes (recently, pictures of wildlife). It's sufficient enough for my casual needs and provides great clarity in shots. This camera is particularly efficient in it's start-up time (less than 2 seconds) and has a fantastic 24x zoom. If you would like a slightly increased zoom, for around $40-$50 more I believe you can purchase the FinePix s4500. For my casual purposes, the zoom on the camera works great. If I had to discern any issues, it would be with the auto-focus and the shutter time. Sometimes the auto-focus doesn't immediately focus on what you want it to, but in those cases you can slightly re-position the camera in your hand and the issue is fixed. With the shutter time, in the pre-set modes (Auto, SR-Auto) it can be a little slow, but this issue can be adjusted in Manual (M) mode where you can manually increase the shutter time for faster pictures. Overall, I would definitely recommend this easy-to-use camera to people who want great image quality but don't want to put up a new mortgage on their house.
We use the camera for our 2 boys.We had another camera that started taking 'foogy'pictures.Bought this camera and what a difference.Love it.Thanks..
