Good quality sound but...

 

I'd buy a Nikon next time.

Easy to use, good price

Pics seem blurry most of the time when set on automatic. Body feels cheap...not as nice as my Nikon which was a similar price

Consumer review (productreview.com.au)

terrible colour

 

What can you expect from a cheap camera. I like the lens/zoom capacity. The camera would be great, if only the colours were even close to natural. I have to edit every photo, increasing the saturation if not tint and temperature, to get even close to...

Low quality photos, only 72 megapixels per square inch

 

This camera is meant to have 16 Megapixels. That means plus 300mp per square inch. In the menu, there is image size, L, M, S, but they are all the same size of 72 pixels per square inch! I would not buy Fuji ever.

Fairly decent Bridge

 

ecent quality snaps. It has 16mp which is fairly decent and 36x optically zoom, with 72x digital zoom. Although you probably won't use the digital zoom because without a tripod, it just won't focus and shake is horrendous. When it really counts and...
