Great little camera,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fujifilm FinePix S4000HD Digital Camera - (14MP, 30x Optical Zoom) 3-inch LCD (Camera)
I bought this camera for my son who wanted something fairly simple but with the a manual option for when he feels like being a bit adventurous, (He knows little about photography but would like to learn). The picture quality is very good, I use photography in my work in medical physics and own a Canon and Olympus DSLRs. I would find it difficult to distinguish between the results obtained between these cameras and the S4000. The only niggle is the aperture control on the Fuji. You only have a couple of f.stops to choose when in manual mode. I also own a Fuji S5000, an old version but when I use this in manual, its full manual with all the f stops available. the S4000 takes over too much and tries to stop you taking shots that wont turn-out, maybe this is a good thing but when I select manual, I want manual, not some gremlin looking over my shoulder. Its still a great little camera and if you want good sharp pictures and a zoom from 25mm to 750mm(ish) then you will not be disappointed.
