    I was a bit hesitant at first before purchasing this camera, but I would never think twice about it again!
    I purchased this finepix camera for photographing my friend's senior photos. It has most definitely far exceeded my expectations! As soon as I got it out of the box, I was amazed at how tiny, compact, and stunning it looked! The shiny metal body not only gives a sturdy outer shell, but also has such a beautiful look. Everyone who has seen this camera has commented on how shiny it is! And the cover that slides nicely over the lens keeps it clear of scratches and dust.
    Underneath all that glitters is definitely gold! The newest Fujifilm Finepix software on the camera is extremely easy to use, along with great features and amazing picture quality! You can even edit the color/contrast of your photos before they ever go onto the computer! Fujifilm has really raised the bar with this amazing new camera!
    This camera is great in the dark! I took a few of the senior photos outside at NIGHT, and they look incredible! Anyone would be CRAZY to think twice about this camera!

    I was looking for something small to carry (I have a nikon 6006). I found this camera to be very hard to hold. Metal was almost slippery. Camera is very small, but the flash was placed in a weird place. Literally, you have to hold the camera with the index & thumb of each hand. All other fingers must be "up" and out of the way or you ruin the flash. Camera slides open very easily, but this can be a bad thing when it turns on in your pocket and the battery is wasted. Lastly, in low light the flash is not enough and the camera did not focus well. I wanted to like this item (I have a fuji underwater camera that I love). I returned this item.

            Very quick access to turning with the "slide cover" part of it. Very easy to use, and good quality pictures for the price. One improvement could be the zoom rate. Doesn't zoom in very much.

                    I was looking for an inexpensive camera that would take HD video to carry along with me at work. I have opportunities to take good action shots and video in my job as a Fire Captain. I looked around and found the Fuji Z70 for a good price.

                    When the camera arrived, I started playing with it at home and took a bunch of pictures and videos. I'm happy with the quality of both.

                    While die hard photographers might complain about this camera for whatever reason, I am happy with the ease of use and surprisingly good photos and video.
