Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Image

Image:
"Because the main problem with the camera is image quality, in particular with the noises."
_
"When I finally got around to loading them onto the PC, I was astonished to find that other than a couple of outdoor shots, every image taken with the camera was absolutely terrible."
_
"I wish they had a one page cheat sheet with recommended settings for various situations, that could fit in a wallet or camera case, like when shooting in P mode is advantageous, etc., or the image degradation at 12 MP versus at 5MP (5MP settings actually improve image quality in some of the modes because of the way that pixels are combined for dynamic range)."
_
"Compared to my older Fuji, the image quality was horrible, no other way to describe it."
_
"It goes into macro mode automatically, it knows when you're doing a landscape shot, etc...It also has face recognition and it attempts to remove redeye from the image."
_
"If you are going to just take photos, this camera can be superior in its photo taking capabilities."
_
"The 10x optical zoom is great for longer ranged pics and the picture quality is great."
_
"From the average user (by that, I mean someone who does not print or just regular print, and take event travel pics for internet sharing), it's a decent camera."
_
"Fuji's has a way to treat color that makes their pic look nice."
_
"Wonderful camera, affordable and images look clean, clear and professional."

Light

Light:
"I'll probably get the broken shutter button on my old F30 repaired so I can still have a no-brainer low light camera on the ready, but I'll keep trying to fine tune the settings with the F80 to minimize the problems with some of the low light modes."
_
"Happy to have this light, cimpact camera back in use!"
_
"I've found that setting the ISO (not max ISO) to 200 and using the EXR mode for low light (which leads to 6 megapixel output) leads to very good quality pictures in most cases."
_
"Most any camera can take decent photos in bright light, so low light indoor shots is the true test."
_
"What I was looking for is a point and shoot with decent performance in low light."

Quality

Quality:
"Because the main problem with the camera is image quality, in particular with the noises."
_
"The picture quality is not good and I was terribly disappointed with this camera."
_
"Compared to my older Fuji, the image quality was horrible, no other way to describe it."
_
"According to more technical reviews, when Fuji moved from the 10 MP F70EXR to the 12 MP F80EXR, with the limitations of the camera's sensor size there was actually a degradation of quality."
_
"I just got the camera but I'm getting some quality problems."
_
"The 10x optical zoom is great for longer ranged pics and the picture quality is great."
_
"At ISO 200 I found that the camera is quite capable of taking some very good quality pictures."
_
"Decent video quality also comes in handy when for when she wants to shoot some video and doesn't have a camcorder."
_
"I've found that setting the ISO (not max ISO) to 200 and using the EXR mode for low light (which leads to 6 megapixel output) leads to very good quality pictures in most cases."
_
"If you haven't purchased one yet, keep in mind that you'll have to play with the settings a bit to get decent quality pictures out of it."

Setting

Setting:
"However, if having clear sound is important, the video settings are useless due to the annoying clicking!"
_
"In my opinion the settings dial is a real glitch."
_
"I can absolutely see why people are so disappointed with this camera when shooting at the default settings."
_
"Unfortunately the lowest max ISO setting is 400, which is still too high for this camera."
_
"I wish they had a one page cheat sheet with recommended settings for various situations, that could fit in a wallet or camera case, like when shooting in P mode is advantageous, etc., or the image degradation at 12 MP versus at 5MP (5MP settings actually improve image quality in some of the modes because of the way that pixels are combined for dynamic range)."
_
"I'll probably get the broken shutter button on my old F30 repaired so I can still have a no-brainer low light camera on the ready, but I'll keep trying to fine tune the settings with the F80 to minimize the problems with some of the low light modes."

_
"If you haven't purchased one yet, keep in mind that you'll have to play with the settings a bit to get decent quality pictures out of it."
_
"So there it is, it's a good camera but it's crippled by the default settings."
_
"I did 35mm film photography in my younger years and the settings made perfect sense to me, roughly paralleling a 35mm camera."
_
"The camera generally does a good job of setting things up for you, but does give you control over these other settings if you want."

Zoom

Zoom:
"After years of heavy use the zoom feature began to fail, understandably so."
_
"One of my main complaints would be that when you are recording you can't zoom."
_
"But you have to turn that down to 100% for indoor low light circumstances, or images will be pretty noisy.3) control over maximum ISO is very useful, but not well explained in the manual.4) zoom is pretty good, a nice range, and with the image stabilization, I've had some clear shots at maximum zoom without a support, in daylight.5) auto rotate of photos in display mode."
_
"The 10x optical zoom is great for longer ranged pics and the picture quality is great."
_
"It packs nice features: zoom, stabilisation, great handling, quick reactivity, nice look, nice weight."
_
"Good zoom."
_
"While a long range zoom is nice, I also value a wide angle lens even more."
_
"But remember that this camera can do things that the older ones could not do, and the optical zoom is much greater."
