The Fuji S3000 was my second digital camera, which I have had for 3 years. It takes excellent pictures. The Fuji color sensor is outstanding. The camera is a 3.2mpx camera. I have printed 8x10 photos with good results. The camera has many neat features, including exposure adjustment, white balance adjustment, and scene selection. Ofcourse the Auto mode works just fine. It does have trouble focusing in low light. I recently upgraded to a Fuji S6000fd because I like theFuji color technology so much. Highly recommended.
