This deal was submitted a few weeks back but went out of stock very quickly.

ebuyer now have another 18 listed at £148.10 which is around £20 cheaper than anywhere else at the moment. (Amazon have it at £176.99)

This appears to be a great camera with many positive reviews. Not as good as a proper DSLR but with an 18 x optical zoom, face detection, image stabilisation and a macro mode with a 1 cm focus it is an excellent piece of kit for the money.

Excellent camera... With great reviews... That will outperform any compact...For under £150.
Seriously HOT.
#5
Looks good.

Can anyone recommend a case?
#6
i was very tempted last time this was posted- but read up and has a few poor reviews - grainy pictures and reliability issues with the mode select switch (they either jam or fall off!)
shame - as i used to own a fuji finepix 4900 digital camera and it was excellent
#7
I bought this when it was on the same offer the other week....I absolutely love it, someone last Sunday even asked if I was a professional photographer because she saw some of my work!!! I was really chuffed!!!!:)

Would defo recommend it without a doubt!!

I got a fuji finepix bag from ebay for under a tenner...they have heaps for sale everyday....I bought it for my S5700 but it also fits this camera too...gonna get another...but its not a 'hard' bag just a normal leather (???) type with long strap..but can't go wrong for the price..had it since october and it still looks new!:)

Great price! but remains an average camera (there are better 18x zoom cameras on the market, but at slightly more cost - and I won't mention mega pixels as that is a totally different debate).

If only Fuji had put their 'Super CCD' sensor in this camera and not the standard CCD, this camera could have been excellent. They certainly missed a trick as the better sensor is in the S5600 (and you can pick one of them up for ~£70) :roll:

This will do for general point and shoot shots, especially outdoors, but is not very good in low light at all.

Then again, you get what you pay for. :)

Voted hawt! Excellent price and amazing zoom.

Just glad the OP didn't put "SLR" down on the main title or the SLR Nazis would have been out in force voting it cold. :-D

Seriously considering this...Was eyeballing the new Kodak earlier which has a nic big zoom (not as big as this though), same MP rating and the usual other stuff...Same price too. http://www.kodak.com/eknec/PageQuerier.jhtml?pq-path=9/11920/131/12460&pq-locale=en_GB

But gonna try and work my magic at my PCW branch to try and get the price match and staff discount...prob. wont happen but dont ask, dont get :lol:

Amazon sell a good custom case for it.

I bought one of these when they first came out, I also own several other cameras including a Nikon DSLR.
I've found the Fuji excellent for bird photography as (for a cheap digital) the auto focus is quite quick and accurate. High ISO noise is slightly worse than the F30 but still very good.
The feature I like most of all is the image stabilisation - really works well.

Takes rechargeable AA's too.
#16
tempting to get this one as ive got the s5600
#17
For an extra £70 you can have the Panasonic FZ18 which IMHO towers above this camera. Not only do you get little to no vignetting at the long range, it also has none of the purple hue around edges which really shows up in certain situations with the Fuji.

The Panasonic is also a rechargeable battery and can take pictures in RAW mode, something this Fuji doesn't.

Voted good for the price but the camera itself is a let down.

Do you own the camera? It just seems anyone who actually uses it says it's great and anyone who's just read the reviews says it isn't. I own it and think it's great. Yes I believe the FZ18 is better but it's also £70 more. A rechargeable battery pack is not all it's cracked up to be either as I found out in Hong Kong recently. My S8000fd ran out of power but I had it back up and running in 5 minute by popping to the nearest shop for some AA's.

(BTW, I'm not trying to argue here, just my observations) :thumbsup:

I don't think I'll tell my girlfriend about this deal - she paid £230 just after xmas with a carry case and 4GB card...

Bear in mind this isn't a Fuji camera despite the badge, I don't know what the agreement is but this is essentially a rebadged Olympus camera although it's missing some of the features (raw, wireless flash etc.) although it is cheaper.

I did own it, for about 4 days, then took it back due to the really bad quality pics at long focal length. Bought the FZ18 and its worlds apart at distance. And the fact that it takes RAW pictures really does make a huge difference over the Fuji. The image stabilising is better, the manual controls are better etc well worth the extra. The panasonic is more of a bridge camera than a compact with a large zoom which the Fuji is really.

True in some regards although bear in mind the FZ18's sensor is actually slightly smaller - 1/2.5 versus 1/2.35 in the Fuji. The upcoming S100FS from Fuji shows much more promise as a bridge camera with its larger 2/3 sensor although price is a large factor here and that's where the S8000 has a large advantage.

With regards to AA vs proprietary li-ion, my preference is very much towards the latter - I used to have a Fuji S7000 which ran on four AA batteries. The high draw of the Fuji and the high discharge rate meant that I had to make sure the batteries were charged the night before if I wanted to use the camera. Even then I'd often run out of power unexpectedly as the low battery warning usually appeared just before the camera was going to die. Being able to buy off the shelf AAs was of little use because I was normally in the middle of nowhere when the batteries failed meaning no AA batteries were available. If I was back in an area where AA batteries were available I could normally recharge anyway. Another slight annoyance is that if you lose just one AA battery then the other three pretty much become worthless, I still need AAs for my flashes and have managed to misplace one battery in a set which is very annoying. In comparison, li-ion batteries have very low discharge rates meaning that even if the camera hasn't been used in weeks it would still give decent batterylife. Additionally I the camera would give much more accurate information on how much longer the battery was going to last which meant I knew well in advance when the batteries were likely to fail. All my current cameras use li-ion batteries and all produce excellent batterylife and even on long photo sessions have never let me down as the AA powered cameras used to regardless of whether they're running on the original battery or cheap generics.

The market has changed slightly though and buying an AA powered camera I'd highly recommend Eneloop AA's as these have a much lower discharge rate and their performance is generally better than standard rechareables.

Poundland have kodak alkaline batteries 4pk BOGOF so 8 batteries for a quid. I swear I find these superb...on the same line as the batteries that came with the camera in the first place. I can get 150-200 photos out of them and thats using the lcd screen and deleting photos as I go...not bad for 50p!!haha!!
