Advantages: great quality, easy to use, nice big screen, click wheel to look through pictures faster
Disadvantages: expensive (although worth it...)
My granddad let me borrow this camera after hearing him going on about how amazing it was, when it was time to give it back, he gave me my own one! I'd previously owned a Fujifilm JX530 (which i've also reviewed), which I still keep for nights out as I don't want to risk losing this new one (I had another JX530 before my other one which a very drunk me lost in a club so had to get a new one!).
I don't really know anything technical about cameras (but these are always in descriptions online to compare). I am so happy my granddad bought this camera for me, it picks up colour and fine details extremely well and the zoom is incredible, I have managed to take very good close up pictures of bugs whilst already being as close as I possibly could be. I carry this camera with me at times because I'm an art student and it's great for taking pictures for inspiration, especially with such great quality and saves me lugging my DSLR around.
You can also take short videos which are HD and have great sound quality, which lets a lot of other cameras down. Another great point about this camera is it as a rechargeable battery, most cameras do these days but it's much better than constantly having to change batteries! The battery doesn't take long to charge and I've found that it can last for a few days even with a lot of usage, I'm amazed by how long it lasts, especially considering how good the screen is.
This is qute heavy for a digital camera but I'm guessing that's because it has a fairly large zoom lense. However the weight does feel good in my hands, I know some people are scared about manhandling the more lightweight ones but I am scared of dropping this one much more because of the weight... which I have actaully done once or twice but not from a great height and it has been fine.
There are so many great features about this camera that I know I haven't even discovered too! The camera is pricey but well worth it, I don't recommend taking it out when clubbing or on holiday but for taking a good quality pictures without having to carry a DSLR around. I'd say the quality of the pictures taken with this Fujifilm is definitely as good as some DSLR cameras out there too but like I said I don't know all the technical camera things so make sure you look at them before buying.
I would recommend this camera to art students or people interested in photography and not to people who are looking for a camera to take pictures when out or clubbing (you should go for something cheaper)!
Summary: Great camera for art students and photography people, not good for general everyday use
