Comments about FinePix S6800 Digital Camera (Black):

I've grown to really enjoy this camera. It has great features, takes great photos and is a great buy for the price. The only downside is that it uses batteries, but that is relatively easy to get over. I love how far it can zoom and the image quality at max zoom.

        The camera is easy to use.However, when I looked at the photo of the camera I didn't realize how large it was. I had assumed the lens would be able to retract.

              - Camera has been used for outdoor macro shots up to maximum zoom of aircraft at a distance and excels at all shots.
              - Indoors, I seldom use a flash because of the excellent low light performance. Facial and blink recognition saves my people shots. Easy to learn and makes a marginal photographer (like me) look almost professional!
              - The only thing I have an issue with is having to remember to get the lense cap off first before powering the camera. (This is MY issue, not the camera's)

              I like the burst feature and quality of the resulting photos. Colors are true. Can take photos of rapidly moving objects such as a ceiling fan and catch them cleanly (without blurring). Catches moving objects and makes them seem to be perfectly still.

              We really bought the camera for its zoom function to use at the drag races. Unfortunately, the Gatornationals were in March. I have used it to get pictures of the lizards running in our garden and closeups of our cats. Works great and is simple to use. Just wish it had an old style viewfinder.

                Just an average, recreational family man using the camera to take photos of the kids. We took it camping, and my wife was able to point and shoot. I was able to easily change settings to get the effects I wanted. Great zoom. Very nice videos. I like having AA batteries as the power source, which is very convenient when camping. Took over 300 pictures on 4 AAs. You'll need a memory card, this camera does not have internal memory. Not a big and bulky camera..

                  Comments about FinePix S6800 Digital Camera (Black):

                  Lets be honest. I bought this camera to replace my SD video camera and not because I needed another camera for taking photos. I already have four SLRs and a digital still camera. My main concern was would it work with my two Macs. They use Firewire, not USB. I was delighted when the camera opened up in iPhoto (which then can easily be transported into my iMovie and Final Cut Express editing programs). That plus the fact that it cost 1/2 to 1/3 what any other HD video camera cost was why I decided to keep it. It also takes great still photos and seems somewhat easy to operate. That's the good part. The bad part is that I wish they had installed an external microphone port. You also can't change the aspect ratio when shooting video, it's 16:9 only. When zooming, the camera picks up motor noise. But, for the price, it's a pretty good deal.

                      This is a great camera for the price. It has the same features that other cameras have at more than twice the price. A 30X zoom brings the action right up to you. Informative instructions have you shooting like a pro in no time. I highly recommend this product.

                      I have 6 grandkids that play sports, I wanted a camera that would take action photos and would not break the bank. I looked for abouth a month and discided on the Fujifilm Finepix S6800, then I started looking for the best price and B&H had the everybody else beat and there revews were good. There shipping was fast and the S 6800 takes super photos up to 10 in about a second and they look great, this is the best camera I've ever used.

                        This was a gift to my wife also a proud grandma. She has been asking for a digital point and shoot to take pics of our grandson. She is a total novice. After searching the marketplace and seeing all of the point and shoots, there are (a Zillion) I found this one. It takes outstanding photos, and she is lovin' it. Truth be told, there is a up side to this; I also gained a new camera. We fight over custody.
                        She saw her Crocuses poking out the other day, and took her camera out and took a phenomenal macro shot, crystal clear and vibrant. This camera is easy enough for a beginner as well as a having a total manual setting for the intermediate user. If you're looking for something to put in your pocket or purse, don't look at this one. If you're looking for stupendous photos and ease of use, this could be for you.
                        B&H Photo had the best prices, and unbelievable shipping time. On their website it said "usually ships in 1-2 days." I received an email the evening of my order stating that it had shipped, they also provided tracking number. I had camera in hand in 3 days, they also have expedited shipping options. It arrived and was packaged very well.

                          Easy to use, lots of options, takes great pictures. I bought this camera for the zoom capability and the price was in my range.

                          I replaced my old beater digital with this one and am even more pleased with this. My old complex point and shoot was over $ and missing most photography controls such as manual, aperture and shutter priority. This was only $ and has all the control an artist and photographer will need. Picture quality was also a pleasant surprise.

                          Have used an S5100 for the last several years. When it finally needed replacing I knew almost exactly what I wanted; the same camera, only newer. This model is such a fantastic replacement for someone like me. I am not a professional photographer by any means, but I am a mother....and children are fast and all over the place! It's important to me to have a fast and functional camera. This fit the bill for sure. So many fun new features to learn as compared to my old 5100. These gave the camera more versatility. Pairing the camera with the right storage card is important to attain the level of speed between shots. Once you have that, this camera can do nearly anything. Takes fantastic close-up photos like I was never able to achieve with the old camera. Its also not too heavy and fits in your hands very comfortably. Love the shape. So, for someone like me who might not be very technologically savvy, this camera is a perfect upgrade!

                          At a "lower end price", good photographers may overlook this bridge camera. The up to date BSI CMOS sensor is sharp, accurate colors, good resolution......this camera sports an amazing array of shooting features and options.....instead of spending much more on a "higher end" bridge camera that may or may not take better pictures, I decided to learn about the modern bridge camera with this model, then later I can upgrade should I decide to. For now I can take zoom images of shore birds, videos of offshore boats, and captured an excellent full moon shot with this camera.....which I believe does maintain much of the legendary "Fuji colors".Of course,the zoom function defines the bridge camera- for pristine images with standard optics, stick with the traditional icons of photography.
