This is my third Fuji Finepix camera and it is just what I expected it would be, compact, sturdy, fairly simple to operate and producing good results. I have been using my cameras for years at work taking photographs of business premises inside and out, at least three days every week, and failures have been because of accidents (dropped onto very hard surfaces!) The one before this is still going strong but anticipating that I will need another at some point I made my purchase and have just used the new one on a visit to Wales. Battery consumption seems to be better than previously and sound quality on video seems much better than on earlier models. For the price I think they are marvelous.
