Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"In the middle of a concert I would have to change the batteries and that did not make me very happy after a while."
_
"Only one negative...it takes 4 AA batteries, and if you don't use higher quality rechargable batteries you will go through batteries quickly."
_
"Problems I have with the S3000:-Short battery life - Buy some (8 or more) rechargeable AAs-Small 16 MB memory comes with the camera - Buy a 128 MB xD-Picture Card."
_
"So unless you own a battery factory I would not recommend this camera."
_
"One caveat: although the battery life is long, the viewfinder is also digital instead of a standard viewfinder, so the batteries may not last as long as you'd like."
_
"The use of AA batteries is a huge plus, so when you are walking around Wallyworld and the batteries go dead, you can just buy 4 AAs, as opposed to cameras with proprietary rechargeables."
_
"It took me a week to be able to use it because it didn't come with batteries or the XD card, but once I got the right parts, I was ready to take photos and I was not disappointed!"
_
"We called Fuji directly and they recommended rechargeable batteries."
_
"all cameras suck up battery life pretty quickly, and this camera is no exception."
_
"I was able to use it almost out of the box after loading the batteries and reading the quick start menu."
_
"I use rechargable 2200 MA NIMH batteries and have not experienced any problem with battery life whatsoever, unlike other reviewers."

Image

Image:
"I'm not too sure why the other person couldn't obtain shots without them being blurred, but I was able to capture images of my friends practicing kickboxing with no motion blur (which even surprised me)."
_
"Not that it wouldn't take good pics, but it takes such a long time between pics that you cannot count on it to take many in a row."
_
"Impressive colors, little grain, and any blur to the images were the fault of my own and not the camera."
_
"While the 3.2 Megapixel capability is not the best on the market, still images come out looking quite nicely--better than images captured using an ordinary camera."
_
"Registered some queries on the Fujifilm web-page and they responded the next day itself...Disadvantages : Not much difference in pics taken with aperture setting of f2.4 and f8.2...(difficult to get photos with a bulrred background) No manual focus.."
_
"Clarity on images is excellent and grain is almost nonexistent."
_
"For in-focus distance images (not scenery shots), say like a graduation, you'll need a tripod to obtain images with excellent clarity."
_
"I honestly cannot gush enough over the ease of use, and more importantly, the photo quality."
_
"Since the flash will be out of range, you'll have to turn it off, but the camera needs to be incredibly still in order to obtain perfect images."
_
"Great starter camera for beginners, I started out with this camera a few years ago and I love the ease of use and photo quality, I'm Looking to get something similar for a younger photo bug, so she can have something a step up from the basic point and shoot, when I had my S3000, I had the carrying case and Lens Hood Wide Angle Adapter... all in all a good starter camera for the money, no complaints..."

Photo

Photo:
"I have had a problem taking photos of aircraft in flight, which either have flown out of the picture or are out of focus due to the automatic focus not locking on the subject."
_
"The photos are amazing!"
_
"The software downloaded great and and with ther USB connections, the photos download great to my XP computer."
_
"The first one took amazing photos!"
_
"It took me a week to be able to use it because it didn't come with batteries or the XD card, but once I got the right parts, I was ready to take photos and I was not disappointed!"
_
"And if you are willing to move around, too, you can get close enough to butterflies or frogs to get a nice photo.4."

Price

Price:
"I know it does not sound great but minus these few gripes, for the price of 160 or so, it is not a bad deal."
_
"It's also really hard to beat this camera for the money."
_
"So, I like it, I'm happy I bought it, the price was good, but it's not perfect."
_
"I think this camera is a great value for the money."
_
"Price product adequate."
_
"Great starter camera for beginners, I started out with this camera a few years ago and I love the ease of use and photo quality, I'm Looking to get something similar for a younger photo bug, so she can have something a step up from the basic point and shoot, when I had my S3000, I had the carrying case and Lens Hood Wide Angle Adapter... all in all a good starter camera for the money, no complaints..."
_
"Since my camera died and it is 7yrs later I'm looking to buy something with more mps BUT I have seen some prices for this camera as cheap as $40 and would consider buying one as a spare at that price, I love it that much."
_
"I can say I am pleased at getting a camera that works for a good price."

"Picture quality is not professional, but it is pretty good."

Zoom

Zoom:
"I knew it was a 6x when I bought it, but I didn't truly appreciate how good its zoom was until I used it."
_
"Beware ANYBODY'S digital zoom - it's nonsense - only optical counts."
_
"Easy to use, powerful flash and a good quality optical zoom."
_
"Great all around camera with great zoom abilities."
_
"I chose this camera over others because it offered a 6x optical zoom which is easily out of the effective range of the flash."
_
"At my son's HS graduation I was in the stands while he was on the floor at a pretty good distance away and I got zoomed in right to his face and they turned out pretty nice too!"
_
"The zoom is 6x and is decent, I was happy with it."
