This review is from: Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd Digital Camera - Black (8.0MP, 18x Optical Zoom) 2.7 inch LCD (Electronics)
I excitedly recieved this shortly before christmas and have now had some time to play with it properly. Firstly this is a seriously good looking and feeling piece of kit. It sits perfectly in the hand, is well balanced and the controls are well positioned and easy to use. The included manual is easy to understand and the in camera menu system is very intuitive. My only gripe is that when used indoors in less than perfect lighting the LCD is a little grainy in shooting mode, it is, however, perfectly crisp and clear for playback. Overall the image quality seems to be very good, I have only printed a couple of A4 size pictures so far but I've been very happy with the output. I'm no expert but I don't see any of the image quality issues raised by other reviewers on Amazon, maybe I'm not looking closely enough. What I will say is this, if you want a camera capable of turning out quality prints of up to A4 size then this seems to do the job nicely. Add 18x zoom, face detection, image stabilisation, ease of use and a sub £200 price and I don't think you can go wrong. Enjoy it, I am!
