    I'm a pro photographer and have always been a die-hard Nikon person - but my last 3 Nikon point and shoots all had mechanical problems as soon as the warranty was up! This Fuji has every option I could want and is quick to access these options. The image quality rocks and I'm happy to have a RAW option on a camera I can throw in my purse!

    I purchased this camera this past Christmas for my wife, to replace an old digital Canon that finally quit. I decided on this specific FujiFilm model based on its specs and the many glowing reviews. Now that we been using it for awhile I am somewhat disappointed. It takes great pictures, most of the time. Many people have commented about the great autofocusing but my experience differs a bit. Many shots are out of focus enough to be noticable. I often icrease the shutter speed, thinking perhaps that was the problem, and even used the image stabilazation. But, again, many shot are still just a tad out of focus. The features are great, but my wife finds it cumbersome when many settings are buried under menus. I don't mind that, but she hands me the camera to change a setting. My biggest gripe is the shutter lag time. To me, being used to an SLR, I find the latency maddenly slow. You press the shutter and then wait... finally the shutter fires. That does not work well when trying to take a photo of a moving object. I tried panning, but when you press the shutter the image freezes on the display and that is not always the image that gets captured.

    Needless to say I wish I had gotten another Canon instead. In all honesty, the old 5 megapixel Canon worked better for me. Not as fancy, but certainly no maddening shutter lag. If I had the chance to test the camera before I decided to purchase it I would not have.

        Easy to use, great pictures and fits in my purse. I just took it on vacation and every picture came out great. Compared to my last camera that took great shots, this camera blew it out of the water. Zoom is good but pictures not as clear when fully extended.

          I will use this camera for my travels, and using it for the first time on my last trip, was flawless.

          The camera is easy to use and the more you use it, the better you like it.

          The zoom is what really impressed me for such a small camera.

            I've bought it for my girlfriend as a replacement of Sony Cyber Shot. It supposed to be something relevantly small with good zoom and MP not less than 15. So taking into account price vs. quality ratio this item was chosen.

            I bought this camera esepcially to use in low-light situations-knowing that it would be tough to find one that made me happy. This does. In addition to the low-light ability, the zoom is fantastic.

            I have posted several pictures for friends to see, and all of them love the quality of the photos. I would recommend this camera to anyone who is interested in learning about shutter speed, aperture, and other manual controls.

              The Fuji FinePix F600EXR is so easy to operate. You can just set it on the EXR function and the camera will make all the decisions for you. It is also full of special settings to help you take the perfect photo.For example there is are options for snow, fireworks, pets, etc, as well as shooting photos at night,at night with a tripod, as well as all the manual settings if you are a pro. It's lightweight, compact but feels very sturdy. The only complaint is the complete operating manual that goes into detail about all the camera features has to be downloaded from the website.

                Comments about Fujifilm FinePix F600EXR Digital Camera (Black):

                My first impression is that it is well built and solid which is important to me. It is small but the rubberized coating, or whatever it is, keeps it in your hands. It feels substantial and not disposable like so many P and S cameras. The door for the battery/SD card is brilliant. It is fairly intuitive and will satisfy both those who like a lot of options and control or others who just want to point and shoot. I was really impressed with it's low light capabilities. I am not overly impressed with the picture quality but I am not disappointed either. Of course I wished it had a viewfinder but you can't fault a camera for not having one. It would be like down grading a car because it wasn't a convertible: You know what you are getting. I didn't consider the F550 because I heard negative things about the GPS but glad to say the GPS on the 600 is fast and accurate. I timed it once and received a signal in about 30 seconds. Leaving it on does kill a battery fast however but fortunately it has the option to turn on and off with the camera. The reality is you still aren't going to wait for a signal to take a picture no matter how short the wait. Fortunately you can copy GPS data from one photo to the next which works for me. Another reason I chose this over other GPS cameras was because spare batteries are a lot more reasonable compared to other brands. The instructions aren't great and you have to fill in the gaps by playing around with the camera but I got through them in a day which is pretty good when compared to my Casio FH100 which I never ended up finishing due to being lengthy and complicated. I mostly bought this for bike touring and it will do well in my handlebar bag and for later uploading pictures to Flickr.

                The GPS and EXR modes are what sold me on this camera.......one can track their photo shoots, even in remote areas using the GPS/geotagging feature....I have taken several seamless panaoramic shots and the results are excellent.

                  I'm a pro photographer and have always been a die-hard Nikon person - but my last 3 Nikon point and shoots all had mechanical problems as soon as the warranty was up! This Fuji has every option I could want and is quick to access these options. The image quality rocks and I'm happy to have a RAW option on a camera I can throw in my purse!
