Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Focus

Focus:
"Second of all if it's not taking good pictures then that means you have to FOCUS it."
_
"The auto focus fails intermittently and you can never be sure if your image will be in focus OR properly exposed."
_
"Focus Focus Focus... sometimes when you think your pictures is in focus, and you review them later.... not so happy."
_
"And the time required for the autofocus to home in on the right point (which it often misses, in fact) is still too long to expect quick responsiveness when shooting a moving subject."
_
"The bottom line is that this isn't exactly point-and-shoot in that area, and since it has no manual focus capability at all, this is a real disadvantage."
_
"To me, lens focuses on the nearest object....Other than that, it works well and durable."
_
"That is, I need to know that 99% of the time the pictures I take will be clear and in focus."
_
"Coupled with the fact that the super-macro (extreme close-up) is very limited, I have to downrate this model pretty strongly in its focusing."
_
"If put into the other auto mode (denoted by a cryptic small red camera icon on the mode selector knob) the macro focusing becomes far more reliable, but still less than perfect."
_
"But all I got is a pretty looking small digital camera, with just decent resolution and an 18x Zoom with zero focus, which makes this feature useless."

"Today FUji lost its own sensor development, uses some tiny sensors in SLR sized bodies, image quality absolutely horrible (deplorable) and their abandoned DSLR market."

Photo

Photo:
"This replaced a Nikon L110 12.1 MP Digital Camera with 15x OpticalMy Previous Cameras were a Konica Minolta 4 MB (Still takes great pics after all the abuse, I use it as a backup, my 5 year old uses it) and the Nikon L110 (Nikon zoom broke on me within a year and needed to be replaced)The photos that this takes exceeded my Nikon L110 by alot."
_
"But I love the quality of photos and every day you learn something from it."
_
"i find i get SOME of the best photos using the sport mode."
_
"For the obvious reasons, I generally eschew cameras with proprietary batteries, rather than the ubiquitous AAs; however, the inconvenience of a backup battery is preferable to ensure that I have reliable and consistent photos."

Quality

Quality:

_
"Today FUji lost its own sensor development, uses some tiny sensors in SLR sized bodies, image quality absolutely horrible (deplorable) and their abandoned DSLR market."
_
"Was uncertain of the quality of the camera at purchase."
_
"I am a knowledgeable photographer and own A nikon D300S and a Nikon D90 with a variety of lenses..I wanted something light to beat around the bush with and take pictures, when carrying the Nikons would not be practicable...I owned a Fuji camera before and it took fair pictures for what it was and that was only a 5 megapixel camera...This new one with 14 megapixels is real real dissapointing when it comes to picture quality...The pictures in all ranges of zoom are washed out and of very poor quality."
