Love It, Love It, Love It
Strengths: Easy to use and great value for the money.
Weakness: Haven't found any yet.
This camera is so easy to use, and the factory settings are perfect for a novice photographer. I actually enjoy taking pictures now. The pictures come out with true colors. The shutter speed is perfect for taking pictures of young ones who won't sot still too long.

Strengths: very good result for outdoor in daylight, powerfull zoom. easy to use.
Weakness: since it only have auto focus, it's hard to take a shot with low lighting. Not recommended for indoor with low lighting. cannot set ISO and shutter speed manually will become a trouble.
fuji must give more feature for the camera. comparing with canon or the others with comparable price, fuji have less feature. even for S9000 series. need to have more for manual setting such as shutter speed and ISO.

Strengths: Very nice quality picture. Strong flash, you can take picture in near dark, however you will not be able to use your view finder. Just perfect weight. Excellent 6x optical zoom.
Weakness: Slow shutter speeds, not good for taking those candid shots. Too many steps to setup timer and need to set everytime you want to use it.
S300 is a well design camera with an SLR quality picture for it's price. The sutter speed was a big disapointment. Camera is great if you want to take portrait picture or scenic. Not so great a camera for taking candid moments, burst speed is just too slow. Very strong flash, but it drains the battery really fast and slows down when taking multi shot. Lots of modes for manual usage, but too many...

I am very pleased with the...
Strengths: Easy to use. 6X optical zoom. Auto matically eliminates the digital zoom on high resolution. Bright viewfinder. SLR. I like the adapter and 55mm filter ring. A very versitile camera for the money
Weakness: None, consider the price of $169. Not all the options of a $900+ camera, but I didn't expect that.
I am very pleased with the purchase of this camera. The pictures are great. The instruction book is deatailed and easy to read. I am able to use many of the filters that I purchased for my 35 mm SLR.

Strengths: Very easy to use, and it has a powerful optical zoom (6X). It handles well, and most controls are easy to decipher. So far, most pictures have come out clear, with good color.
Weakness: The delay takes some getting used to, especially with action shots. It is not as compact as some models. It didn't include an AC power adapter, but it is available.
This is my 2nd digital camera. I like the use of AA batteries, as this was a problem with the 1st camera that I disliked very much. It takes pics comparable to my 35mm SLR, and I can pick what I want to keep and delete. I bought it at Circuit City for $169.99, and even with an extra 64mb picture card, I was out the door for less than $230. I think that's an incredible bargain for the features it...
