Fujifilm Finepix S2950
Advantages: Nice size, great picture quality
Disadvantages: A little bulky, but this really is a bit of a none issue.
I purchased my Fujifilm a while ago now. I have had various cameras that mainly consisted of the little compacts which where great up to a point.
The catalyst for this purchase was a backpacking trip around Australia. I wanted a half decent camera that didn't cost the earth and I don't know anything about photography, so I didn't need masses of special features.
What I did want was a decent lense with a good zoom function. That is exactly what I got! The Fuji Finepix is brilliant, It takes really good quality photos, is sooper easy to use and has just enough features and functions for novices like me to play around with, without being too complicated!
I took some incredible and some shocking photos on my trip. (The shocking ones were down to me, not the camera.)
I feel like it is the perfect point and shoot coamera. You don't have to be worried about lugging a load of gear around with you, but it still has enough oomph, to capture those memories really well.
I find compared to a standard compact, it is a little bulky, but I think that is me being picky and after all, you can't have a great camera like this inside a compact body, so I think this is a great compromise!
I was planning on selling my Fuji when I returned home, but now I just want to hang on to it for day to day use because I love it so much!
I feel it is the perfect compromise between the really expensive proffesional cameras and the standard point and shoot compacts.
I don't think it would be the go for someone who was properly into proffesional photography, but I don't know about those really feature rich cameras.
For day to day and holiday use you can't go wrong with this one.
Summary: Wow! I only planned to keep it for my trip, now I don't want to get rid of it!
