5.0 out of 5 stars Try a superb camera, not the manual, 25 Oct. 2007
By 
Previously I owned a Fuji S7000 which produces stunning results. The S8000 has most of the 'wants' I had of the 7000 incorporated. The 18x zoom is tremendous, the stabiliser is great, 8MP are very useful, intelligent flash really shows you what can be done. Add to that superb optics, red eye reduction, face recognition and you have a very competitive camera.

Not quite a D-SLR, but you get more than enough telephoto without the need of lens changing and the attendant risk of dust on the CCD.

The camera is fairly light but well balanced. Controls are placed well, although you must become adept at reading the menus -which have replaced a lot of the buttons on the S7000 - which are many and function dependent. If you want high quality TV style movies get a camcorder, otherwise use the very successful 640 x 480 movie mode on this 'still' camera.

Finally, after a total of 71 test photos and 20 prints I can safely say the photo quality is up to Fuji's usual excellent standard.

I would recommend it highly for an amateur using the 'auto' mode as well as a competent photographer capable of using its potential to the full.

A very good buy (particularly at this price)
