I am over the moon with my new Fujifilm Finepix digital camera! I should qualify that statement by saying I've had only cheap pocket-sized digital cameras before this one, so it's not fair for me to compare to other larger models BUT I couldn't be more pleased with this model. It's very easy to adjust the settings and even edit on camera. This is so easy to use, even my kids love to play with it. Image Quality There are several available settings for image quality right on the device. I'm able to get gorgeous, crisp results (and I'm a pretty poor photographer, so that's saying a lot). Performance This camera has every feature I need and does it really well. At first the number of options felt a little overwhelming, but I spent a happy day playing with it and now can use most of the settings with confidence. Ease of Use Very easy to use once you get used to it, and that doesn't take very long at all. Durability So far so good! I have only had it for a short while so we'll see how it holds up. Battery Life I charged the battery right when I received the camera on Christmas and still haven't needed to recharge. Impressive! Portability It comes with a variety of straps plus a carrying case. Portability-wise, it's all set.
