I recently purchased this camera to use while on a family vacation. Having a price in mind, we were shopping for a suitable product that is more than just a compact camera, but not a professional either. Fujifilm have a good 26x zoom that can clearly capture details from the far distance. Scene recognition and face recognition makes the pictures very detailed, not blurry. It allows to create stunning panoramic pictures, by joining three photos together. A built in microphone allows you to shoot short sound movies at 30 frames per second. The camera is very easy to use, even easier with auto mode. The camera fits nicely in hands, not too big, however I found it a little heavy when put 4xAA batteries in. It comes with a handy neck strap and protective lens cap also USB-A/V cable and CD-ROM, batteries are included. I got my from argos Christmas catalogue at discounted price of £149, I believe the offer ends after Christmas 2011, also got a half price case, when purchased with the camera. I am very happy with this product; it is a good family and everyday use camera. I do recommend it to anybody, who wants that little bit extra.
