Fujifilm Finepix S700 7.1MP Digital Camera with 10x Optical Zoom
I cannot get this camera to focus properly – it is just off. I have tried the manual focus which is lame. It does not work. I have used the auto focus, and that is worse. The pictures (indoors with photo lights) are dark, and the colors are a bit off. Outdoors the auto setting works great. This camera needs a great deal of light to get the pictures to look like what you are shooting.As a photo enthusiast, this is my third Fuji upgrade. I have studied many other cameras but always go back to the Fuji brand. I definitely would recommend this camera. This camera would work best on a tripod all the time. The flash overexposes the photos. I bought this oversized camera believing it would do a better job then the more compact digital cameras. I was wrong. The Sony cybershot outdoes this camera and is more compact and lighter to carry. This camera does a good job in low light without a flash. The flash heavily distorts the colors. I haven’t found all the settings very helpful. You can pay half the price and get a more usable camera.that is very fast service. it was telling me about 2 or 3 weeks time. actually, it just be in my hand less a week. goodAfter 15 months and several thousand pictures I am very happy with my FPs700. I use it as a point and shoot camera (I have no special photography experience) but it has advanced features also. I was able to capture hundreds of photos of my dogs puppies. This gave me a great album of memories and also allowed me to upload photos to the internet to find them great homes. The camera has performed as expected and has shown me excelent results for my needs. I chose this larger camera to allow me to better to grip it. It looks and feels like a profesional camera. I have had great battery life. I am using Radio Shacks 1.2v, 2100mAh batteries I purchased with the camera. I very infrequently need to recharge them. I use the LCD display and very often the flash and have never had to change the batteries mid-shoot. I took action photos of the puppies that turned out great. The shoot speed (from shoot to shoot) is not too bad (about 2 secs with the flash). It also has a sequential shoot feature that works ok. I use a SanDisk 4gb SDHC card and use that to transfer pictures from the camera to the computer using the included software. Other photo software, like Picasa, works also. I find the resolution, using it as a point and shoot camera, to be adequate for my needs. The photos I take with the FPs700 is as good as any photo I took using various 35mm film cameras (only I can take hundreds of extra pictures with the digital camera). I can take clear pictures that can be zoomed to see more detail. I do have one problem; there is a spec of debris on the lense below the outer lense. This only shows up on dark backgrounds but it can be seen sometimes. There seems to be a gap between the outer lense and the lower assembly!? I have tried to get to the lower lense but have not been suscessful yet. I have always kept the lense cover handy but the design is just prone to this. I was very fortunate to have been able to purchase mine at Radio Shack for $170.00 March, 08′. A great price for a great camera. I personally would have to reconsider at $400.00 though. When I purchased my camera I was in the less that $200.00 range.
