Comments about Fujifilm FinePix S4800 Digital Camera:

We needed a P&S type camera for our museum. All acquisitions have to be cataloged and photographed. This camera fit the bill by focusing very close. Two of our board members liked the camera well enough that I ended up ordering three cameras. The price was quite low for all the value received. I'm guessing AA batteries, 720p video and a 200k LCD panel make the camera look a little behind compared to newer models. None of this mattered to us. Very pleased!

    Comments about Fujifilm FinePix S4800 Digital Camera:

    I absolutely love this camera. The bought this camera for the zoom capability and found out it had a lot of cool features that I never had with my simple point and shoot cameras. Well worth the price and then some. I am still playing around but have taken some great shots with it.

      Comments about Fujifilm FinePix S4800 Digital Camera:

      I would have never known about this camera if my mom hadn't gotten one and I played with hers for a few days then decided to get one of my own. I was on the market for a new camera better than my old point and shoot. This camera is really amazing for the money. The 30x zoom is amazing, takes clear pictures even at full zoom. The flash looks really great. I usually don't even like flash photography, but this one has such a nice natural look, its amazing. I live in NYC and since I got this camera, I've been photographing the city like never before. People are loving my pics. The only two things that are not great are low light (without a flash) though it's not horrible. You need to put it on "natural light" setting and you can get decent pics indoors at night without a flash. Not perfect, but still decent. Autofocus for landscapes can be a bit fussy at times and not wanting to focus. This again is only at lower lighted settings. The lack of a manual focus can make this a tad frustrating at times. Still though, for a price tag this low, I am way more than satisfied. The pics it does well, it does REALLY well. They rival pro SLR shots I've seen. Highly recommended.

          i'm a point-n-shoot person. but sometimes i just want to beable to do one thing with a photo... like sharp foreground, blurry background. and this camera makes it super easy. i have access to a DSLR at work, but usually it's just "too much." this little one does what i want. and it was a great price.

              This was a present for my 13 year old son who has seen me as a photographer for all his life. He is charmed! His days of envy are gone. The camera is light and sturdy. It has a great zoom and the macro is superb. Everybody is happy!
