    Excellent for the price

    Posted .

    Received this camera 2 days ago and have been playing with it and so far we like it. The camera is a great point and shoot, definitely not a DSLR. I bought this to replace the camera on my 5S for when we take trips as I wanted something with more features than my phone. The camera is quite versatile. The only gripe I have is in low light conditions. Seems like the camera takes a while to adjust or sometimes just cannot adjust and the pictures come out dark. Great pictures on bright sunny days though, not too over-exposed. The zoom on this is excellent, at 30x digital zoom it definitely works like it should. Some cameras run the risk of longer zoom-lower quality picture, and this one stood its ground fairly well. The CD installer is only for Windows, not Mac so beware. Otherwise, you plug in the provided cable to the camera and to a usb port and no problems with viewing your pictres and transferring them to your computer. The included 8gb card holds about 975 pictures at 16mp 4:3 and about 9 mins of video. Speaking of, I havent tried out the video function yet. I do wish the LCD screen was a little higher quality. After a picture, it makes me feel insecure that the picture looks horrible and am not around my mac to upload it to verify if I should've snapped a 2nd one, o well, gotta get used to it. All in all I like it alot and for $120 on deal of the day I wasn't going to pass it up. I definitely recommend it for a point and shoot and not if youre looking into doing anything fancy.

    Good value for the money

    We bought this camera specifically for a trip to France and it worked out great. It uses AA batteries so we made it through the whole two week trip without changing them once and no charging neccessary. The zoom is great and the stability was great. The only negative I had was it was a little hard to figure out which setting to use to take clear photos at night. Even though there is a night setting, it was hard to get the pictures to focus. Eventually they would but it took a few attempts too many in my opinion. All the other times it was easy to use and pictures were great.

    Great camera for the price!

    I got this on the deal of the day for my wife, and it is a great camera for the price. There are better cameras out there, but I doubt any beat this one at it's price point. I've gotten some high quality professional looking photos just using the automatic features. The zoom is solid as well. I've had some trouble in low light situations, and I did have one zoom malfunction. The lens got stuck and the camera said there was debris in it, but I could not see anything obvious. I just wiped it off a few times, turned it on and off, and it started working again. This camera is also not compact and feels a bit fragile. The shutter speed can be a bit slow, but what do you expect in a low cost non-SLR?

    Great intro SLR camera

    Posted .

    Want the advantages of an SLR camera without the necessity to figure out which interchangable lenses to buy and then have to figure everything else out? Well.........this Fujifilm FinePix will do the trick at a fraction of the cost. Want to get great shots at a concert but your little handheld can't get it done or are afraid to get turned away at the gate for not having a media pass? This camera is your answer as they allow it through as the lens is not detachable but you'll still get the pro quality shots with the 16MP quality and 30X zoom. I shot a couple of major festivals with this one this year and I am VERY satisfied with the results.

    Great All-Purpose Camera

    The Fuji S4830 digital camera is a great all in one camera. It combines a 24-720mm (equivalent) lens in a compact, easy to hold camera. It uses readily available AA batteries, and lasts forever on a set of four batteries. It takes sharp and colorful pictures that look great. The package deal from Best Buy was also great. It included a nice case and a memory card, so the camera was ready to use right out of the box. Considering the price, this camera is a great dela!

    Amazing Camera For The Price

    |
    Posted .

    This camera has exceeded my expectations. It's picture quality and features are amazing for the price. The zoom quality of the lens is exceptional. We were at a lake and the kids though they saw a crane on the other side of the lake, I couldn't see it but focused the camera at full zoom and later on examining the picture was a perfectly clear shot of the bird. The on screen guidance for panoramic shots is great and result in an amazing picture .

    Should have waited

    Posted .

    For this being a camera, I was expecting a better picture quality than my GS4. This however, was not the case. Taking pictures inside a building still takes some minor tweaking of the camera settings depending on the number of windows around. My girlfriend has used this camera for a lot of close up pictures of her cat, these close pictures have turned out well. Pictures being taken outside however require a deal of adjusting the settings. I found this to be easy, but some of the colour has been lost. Had I paid full price for this camera (I got it as a Deal of the Day) it would have been brought back later that day. This camera might be good for someone else, but for me and the things that I wanted to use it for, I wish I would have realized the return time was only 15 days. Some of the features on this camera are good. The video that it takes is smooth, the panorama stitching works great, the zoom is fantastic, changing the settings works well and is fairly quick. Again, for the full price, I would not recommend this, but if it's on sale for more than 50%, I'd say look into it.

    Bought it as a gift

    Posted .

    Camera was purchased as a gift for my brother-in-law and his wife, who are expecting their first child. I thought it was a great price and good specs for them to document their child's early years. The only thing I didn't care for and wish I knew prior to purchasing, was that the camera takes AA batteries and not a rechargeable pack. I guess you can use rechargeable AA batteries though.

    Important element missing

    Posted .

    I have two prior earlier release models of this camera that are 14 megapixels with similar zoom range and have turned out to be great for capturing nature photography and other action shots. I was going to purchase the S 4830 on Deal of the Day to upgrade the megapixels. Then I realized from the specs and the owners manual that this camera no longer has a viewfinder. The viewfinder provides a workaround to the slow shutter speeds reported for the Fuji Megazoom S series cameras in that it bypasses the LCD display on the rear of the camera that takes time to refocus and shoot when the shutter button is pressed. The S 4830 only has the LCD display, not the viewfinder. On the earlier viewfinder models, you can partially depress the shutter release button and focus on your subject matter. Once the focus is locked in, pressing the shutter button down further takes an almost instantaneous shot, equally rapid to that of my Olympus DSLR. Using the viewfinder method, I can catch diving pelicans and other fast action shots that are virtually impossible with the LCD only model. If you don't need to be able to take action shots with fast shutter response, then this should be a fine camera for your needs. But if you need DSLR type shutter response, you will be disappointed. The viewfinder for me was the biggest selling point for this Fuji S series of cameras. Without it, it becomes a decent point, and shoot, and wait for the shutter to snap the shot camera. I'll pass on this one and hope they add the viewfinder feature back on future models. Hope this helps you decide.

    Very nice camera for the money

    Posted .

    For the money, especially when I bought the item on a sales price at around $ 100.00 lower than the regular Best Buy price. Easy to use with lots of features, but I find myself at a cul de sac when it comes to finding some accessories like compatible UV lens.

    A price I couldn't pass up for a 16 megapixel camera & 30x lens. Price drove this purchase but the technology was excellent...actually, it was 40% - 50% better than anywhere else on the web....and Fuji makes a good camera.

    I bought this camera about 3 weeks ago and didn't really have used enough to tell what is good or bad on the camera but with few shots and videos in the house with lights, the result came out good-pictures came out clear. Good camera for the price (deal of the day price) but I will never buy this at a regular price.
