3.0 out of 5 stars Much improved, 16 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fujifilm FinePix S4800 Digital Camera - Black (16 MP, 30x Optical Zoom) 3.0 inch LCD (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
The flash stopped working on my Finepix S1800 before a planned holiday. I was of two minds whether to go for another Finepix but the S4800 offered a much better specification so I decided to risk it. The S4800 is much more user friendly in navigating the desired settings for taking photos and they appear to have overcome the motor noise that could be heard when zooming when taking movies with the S1800. The lens cover is much improved and only comes off when you want it to. 30x zoom is wonderful but of course does require a tripod. (They have added a 2 second self timer additional to the normal 10 second one so that you are not touching the camera when it is shooting on a tripod at high zoom). I have been very pleased with the results achieved so far. My unhappiness centres around the supporting documentation: The quick start guide is too basic to be anything but that and the full guide that must be downloaded is difficult to format and print into a booklet that would be easily packed into a camera case for reference when needed. Most disappointing was the absence of the AE BKT in the Continuous Shooting mode that is supposed to take three shots, one at at metered value, a second over exposed and a third under exposed. I found this feature very useful on the S1800 and although it is supposed to be present on the S4800 it does not appear on the Continuous Shooting menue. I will take this query up with Fujifilm when I have time.

This feature isn't normally found in continuous/burst modes. It is usually a stand-alone feature under the shooting mode menu. You either have single, continuous in various speeds, exposure bracket, iso bracket or picture effect bracket. Can't have a combination of them.
I have a Fuji X series, SamsungNX, Sony Alpha and a LumixG and that is how they all are. The high end G has a few more flexible options but that is exceptional and you could buy ten of these for one of those.
But if you insist that you had this feature on your old camera, who am I to doubt you.
