My Fuji Reviews

I will be summarizing the information from 3 reviews which I found regarding my camera Fuji S1000fd.

Three strengths of this camera are:
1. 12x optical zoom
2. full manual controls even though its a small camera
3. relatively inexpensive for those of us moving up from a smaller point and shoot


Three weaknesses are:
1. user camera shake is very apparent without having an image stabilization feature
2. slow start up time and long shutter lag
3. bad high ISO image noise

Although there is a lot of review information out there on this camera, I choose these strengths and weakness based on my experiences with this camera. My bottom line conclusion: Its a great little camera that gets me one step closer to a larger slr. It has lots of manual controls but also shoots exceptionally well in auto mode. However, without an image stabilization feature, some of the shots come out blurry.
