    Comments about Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 Digital Camera:

    I had been looking at cameras all over the place
    they all had some features I wanted but not others.
    Then I came across the SL1000 at B&H and it had everything I was looking for and more 16 mega pix
    50mm zoom and lots of features at an unbelievable price. I am really enjoying it.

          Comments about Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 Digital Camera:

          I bought this camera for an upcoming trip overseas. Currently I interpret a photography class and was fascinated by all a camera can do. I did want a point and shoot camera so I could use it right away. I've already taken some great shots. Well, I think so anyway. It's simple to use and the manual does explain most things about the camera although I could use more details. Software is a bit difficult to understand also. Those are the only negatives I can think of for this camera. Not only does it have a electronic viewfinder, the LCD screen is movable. All of this for a very decent price thanks to B&H's photography representative ability to find everything I wanted in a camera under budget.
          I showed the camera to the photography professor at the local college and he was very excited by what it could do. Shutter speed, aperture and ISO can be adjusted for various affects.
          I am very please with my purchase and hope to get a lot of use and many good pictures in the future

            The ease to use this camera is amazing. The only drawn back is the battery goes quick. Great price, family members purchased a Nikon but not happy this camera takes better pics, PERIOD! Going to try a differnt approach to see if the battery will last longer. I do have an extra battery & charger from my now broken Fuji that's the same. You Tube great videos for all the hidden extras and how to use. Service from B&H is fantastic, 2nd purchase from them.

                    Simple to use. For point and shoot and for yournown configuration.
                    AMAZING zoom for a "domestic" camera. Very stability.

                    Not so easy to navigate between the modes, but easy to learn how to.

                      Comments about Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 Digital Camera:

                      This camera fell very short of my expectations. The zoom capability and the ability to shot in the raw were the two biggest reason I purchased this camera, however the zoom in useless with out speed or the ability to focus quickly. The view finder is useless, it is like trying to look though shaving cream and while the LCD screen does allow for better viewing it doesn't focus in time for you to see what you are zooming in to see. This camera has received all good reviews in the past so I was super surprised to find it so lacking. Needless to say I have returned this camera. I currently have a Nikon5100 that I love but I was looking to add the zoom option without the zoom lens expense but now I see I am much better off saving the thousands to get the big zoom vs paying the $xxx for this fuji that is useless in all aspects. I would like to note here that I have also tried out the Canon SX50 hs and both the zoom and the focus on the Canon work very well. If you are looking for a super zoom bridge camera I would highly recommend the Canon sx50hs.
