I am extremely pleased with this purchase from Overstock.com! I once was a fairly good 35mm film photographer, but I've only owned a couple of digital cameras... point-and-shoot type. This Fuji camera's quality is amazing. I play in a band, and we needed a camera to do some quality digital promo photos with. We are not disappointed! It can be easily used on automatic, or you have the option to use a number of other exposure settings. The fact that it can recognize up to 10 faces in a photo and compensate for exposure and focus on each of them is super. And the video (movie) quality is quite good too. I especially like the fact that it compensates for arbitrary hand movements to keep focus clean and clear, since my hands are not as steady as they once were, due to MS. Overstock include everything you need to use this camera out of the box, from an SD card and card reader to a set of rechargeable batteries (and a set of regular ones too). And the price is amazing for all of this!
As an avid hiker I could never capture all the wildlife I see with my point and shoot camera at max zoom. This camera does! You see all the vibant colors of birds and their details. I wish I had this camera some time ago I would not of got a fuzzy shot of a bobcat while mountain biking a view weeks ago and I would of captured the beauty of the male Mandarin Duck just last week. This bundle is an excellent value and the camera is very easy to use. I like the option of adjusting the shutter and aperture settings as well.
I take photos of meetings and events for a political campaign and I take pictures every day in various environments. This camera is very easy to use and is fairly lightweight. I like the tripod that it came with because it is bendable and fits in my pocket. The bag has enough room for the camera and everything it comes with, plus my small notebook and a pen, so I don't have to carry an extra bag when I am working at an event. There are multiple settings to adjust to any lighting situation and are named things like nighttime or beach or indoor party, etc, so they are easy to remember. The panoramic mode is my favorite one to use because it captures an entire room of people easily. The camera lens can be taken off quickly and easily and the camera turns on quickly if I have to capture something in a hurry. Overall, I really love this camera for work because it gets the job done well, so there is minimal editing at the end of the day.
I am so impressed with this camera...I have never been able to do so many things and such a variey of different photos before with any other camera. The aim is precise, the picture is clear and everything about this camera is wonderful!
This bundle is excellent, and since I ordered it during the Flash Deal, got an excellent price on it. The pictures it takes are very clear, and the camera is easy to use. The camera bag had some kind of melted plastic on it, but I managed to get that off. Other than that minor flaw, I could not be more pleased.
