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.

Just right for me.

I am an artist and I use it to shoot my finished paintings when they are done.
I get great results for posting online for sales.

    I'm still learning how to use this great little camera-----I have begun to consult the instruction manual----as one of the first things I did was delete the 9 photographs I'd taken.Very pleased with the camera----Have always liked the quality of Fuji products---starting way back many years ago with their film

      Comments about FinePix S6800 Digital Camera (Red):

      I use the camera mostly to take pictures of the stained glass I make and post it to websites for sale. It is very easy to use and then download the pictures to my computer. Has lots of features my old camera did not have and it is easier to use also. Once you take a photo, you can zoom in on the frame and cut out items you do not want while it is still in the camera. That is a very nice feature. So far I have not found one thing I do not like about the camera. I also like the auto focus it has, that works great! The image quality is excellent too! I am shaky when I take photos and the camera stabilizes my shakiness and makes a clean photo.

        Comments about FinePix S6800 Digital Camera (Red):

        I can't believe how much better the photos are just because I spent an additional $ from $ for the point & Shoot I bought last year. It is not as small as a point & shoot but the quality of pics is more important than having a compact camera.The camera is very easy to use and takes great pics. It's like having an SLR in a point & shoot. Service was great and the price beat everyone else including @.

        After many hours of research and procrastinating, I finally decided on this Fujifilm s6800. It's super fast and great in low light. I have a lot left to experiment with, but so far picture quality is spot on for the price.

        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.

                    - 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..

                        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.

                          Used this camera at a one year olds birthday party. Great results. Family pictures under difficult lighting conditions came out great.

                            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.
