Great all purpose camera (Candy Allison — 11/04/2010)
I bought this camera to upgrade from a Kodak Easyshare---It took some getting used to but 95% of the time you get crystal clear shots. I got it for taking sports/action shots of my son's football & wrestling. It takes amazing action shots even in continuous shooting. The only draw back was as night comes on and lighting gets lower the quality of action shots start to get blurry if you use continuous shooting. When I have sufficient lighting you can even catch even the most tiny thing in a shoot. Take the time to read the manual and other than low light sporting shots you will never be disappointed.

Start freezing and hanging up - (BPM — 01/13/2010)

Really it takes excelent pictures, but after a while the camera stops working.
It starts freezing images and then starts hanging up.
Putting a new SHC memory card as sugested by some users apparently resolved, but after some hundred od fotos all the problems reapper.
In Fuji official Web site no mention of the problem, even when hundred of same claims can be found in Internet from custemers around the word.
I will never buy a Fujy camera again.

Crashes ruin an otherwise great camera (Laura — 12/29/2009)

After 9 months my camera has started to freeze. You have to take the batteries out to unfreeze it. I'm hoping to be able to return it to the store where I purchased it. It seems to be a prevalent problem (look it up on the internet). Too bad because its a great camera otherwise.

s1000fd (mark barnes — 10/13/2009)

this is a great camera. I use the olympus xd 1gb picture card and rechargeable nickel metal hydride 1.2v 2500mha batteries. picture quality depends on how well you get to know the camera. even takes good videos and can make clear shots of long distance objects. the close ups take a little getting used to.

ZOOM ERROR (florence pocius — 10/11/2009)

We have never owned any camera except a Fuji. This s1000 worked fine for a few months when suddenly it ceased to work and message read "ZOOM ERROR." Every web site I checked said to find a repair service. I purchased this camera for $350. The cost to have it repaired would be $90.00. I am very disappointed and will not spend $90.00 for the repair and will not replace it with another Fuji.

zoom error (James Hart — 09/29/2009)

took good pictures for about 10 months then it comes up with a zoom error. Manual says take it to a fugi dealer to get it repaired. Really with the price of this camera would it be worth fixing???? Buy another camera......

new camera (Dawn McCormick — 07/28/2009)

I haven't had it long. But the daily changing of batteries it a bit annoying.

Comparable to the $600 rage. (Andrew — 07/10/2009)

Bad- In high zoom it doesn't focus well. In full sun it can overcompensate in full auto. It has limited settings, F/.8 - F/7.1, SS 2000-8".
Good- Amazing quality pictures, Awesome continuous shooting, easy to use, no extraneous features you'll never use.

Overall I would suggest that everyone looking at the $200 range get this one. It gives you all you need and nothing you don't. Everyone from the highest gallery pros to fun with friends can use this camera. Highly recommended.

auto w/ or w/o flash (pnoy — 07/01/2009)

first of all, good choice of your camera. I have this camera and I love it, the only thing you need is just a little trick on your settings. Let's talk about the manual first, what I did is i went to and download the manual. The cd that comes w/ the camera is just the basic. Now after you download the manual, it tells you what is the secret. Outdoor picture, use Aperture and you don't need flash. One more thing do not use the face detection, it makes the shutter slow. check my pictures,

this is where you can download the program and click what you need:

email me if you have more question? Good luck....

Great pirece of kit for the price! (K — 06/25/2009)

Once you know what you're doing and don't get all upset when you do things like -

"I messed with every setting on the camera and never could get the pictures to turn out"

Cameras aren't for "messing" with settings, read up on what you're doing first and you'll enjoy the camera more. I don't know why people jump to attack things they clearly haven't given half a chance.

excellent camera but I have a question? (Rhonda — 06/11/2009)

I love this camera and recieve alot of compliments on my pics, I cant find my manual and all my pics on sunny days outdoors are turning out totally dark, this is in auto with and without flash, can someone help?

Great camera (Artie — 05/29/2009)

Love the zoom.Great panoramic mode.Fine quality pictures.
I love everything about this camera.
Be sure to buy a battery charger and 4 rechargable double A batteries.

An excellent camera for the price (Melissa — 05/15/2009)

My complaint would be that the user's manual is on cd; but they had no problem printing three basic manuals in three different languages. I used one for notes to carry with me.

I have taken this camera to a couple different concerts and have used the video feature a few times. Of course the loudness is too great for the mic...if you'd ever be able to hear anything over me screaming that I'm really disappointed that you cannot zoom in or out while your recording. Be sure to do that before hitting the record button and let it focus first.

This camera was my upgrade from a Sanyo 603 6mp (?) and my goodness could I clearly see the difference. It has taken some time to get use to the size, all the features and to figure out; but I love it! I couldn't count the thousands of pictures I've taken with it in the short amount of time that I've owned it.

I recently took a trip to New Orleans and took around 1200 pix on three different cards (1, 2, and 4 GB), with room to spare on the last card. The camera does use 4 batteries and I thought this was going to be a problem at first, but I use rechargeable batteries. I think I only changed the batteries once while I was visiting NOLA.

I'll also mention that I like the voice memo feature that you can add to your pic.

The Museum mode is nice and the indoor/party settings as well. I used those features last week at my cousin's graduation and her friends were amazed by the camera not brightly flashing. I know they were wondering if the pix would even turn out well...and they DID! :)

I love my camera and I greatly recommend this one to anyone.

Fuji Finepix S1000fd (Skinna — 05/01/2009)

I bought this because my Finepix4.1mp was no longer really suitable, I design websites and need a good camera to obtain nice images for my customers' sites. I have had NO PROBLEM at all with my S1000, I find it to take beautiful clear pictures, and the colours are deep and vibrant.

Total Junk (Mark Fucci — 04/01/2009)

Camera locks up every 10 pictures regardless of what card you have in it. Can't even shut it off. Have to remove the battieres to start over. blurriest pics I've ever taken. Biggest
waste of money I ever spent.

The best digital camera under $200 by far! (Paul — 03/28/2009)

I would recommend this camera to anyone. Simple to use (if you read the instructions, it's even easier!) Takes good quality photos on the Auto setting, and you can manually adjust plenty if that's your thing. Also has plenty of presets for fireworks, snow, sport, landscape etc. Has the best zoom of any digital camera I've had.

I LOOOOVE this camera!! (Asheley — 03/27/2009)

I bought a kodak m1093is and HATED it so i exchanged for this and had to pay a difference of 20 dollars. and it is worth every penny. if this had image stabilization it would probably be perfect. also pics are taken in Avi not other format but i still love it!!my pics come out clear and my toddler is a runner so its a challenge taking pics of her but it is still worth it. Seriously, BUY this camera!! its size is absolutely perfect and very user friendly. this is a good choice for an advanced point and shoot and i still have a lot to learn.

Good choice (pnoy — 03/25/2009)

It's a good thing I choose this camera, It's easy to use and very handy. This is the only camera that you can change the pixel as far I know. I almost bought the Kodak but since the Fujifilm S1000fd, it's more stylist.

do not return this product (pnoyxtrm — 03/23/2009)

I'm sorry what happen to you on the cruise and the camera. it happen to me to but I'm not on the cruise, just taking pictures. First, I can't figure it out why this thing happening on the camera, so what I did is read the manual. Here's the problem, what kind of memory card do you use in the camera. Did you format the memory card on the camera before you use it. When I did all that format the memory card, you won't believe it that camera can take some good pictures. You can adjust the pixel, I mean there's a lot of things you can do. I suggest do your homework, Don't give up.

Do not buy this camera (Edyth Dorning — 03/02/2009)

I bought this camera to replace my olympus 3.2 camera. I wanted to update to 10 pixels and zoom 12. What a mistake. I took this camera on a cruise and all the pictures that I tried to take in sunlight would not take. I tried all the settings. Today there is snow on the ground and the sun is shining.I tried to take pictures and they all come out black. I took my old olympus camera and took beautiful pictures. I wasted my money on this piece of junk. Who wants a camera that does not take pictures in the sun.

Unnatural color (Danno — 02/28/2009)

Horrendously unnatural color, especially indoors. EVERYTHING comes out way too warm, too sensitive to yellows and reds, no matter what setting you use, even auto white balance. Colors are overly saturated. Skin tones are always orange. Tried all white balance settings. Also, 8 times out of 10 an outdoor shot in bright sunlight will come out underexposed.

Just not what it says it is (Joe Goff — 02/20/2009)

Why buy this S1000 camera when the upgrades are so much better? I also have a FujiS7000 camera which does so much more than the S1000, and at a much cheaper price. The S1000 just doesn't live up to the rave reviews it gets. Wish I could seel it, but cannot possibly recover the cost. Gave it to my grandson for simple point and show stuff.

Very happy with this choice (Rob B — 02/18/2009)

Great choice for anyone looking for a simple to use digital camera, but also good for the more experienced. Excellent picture quality; easy to learn if you take a few minutes; very good users options and settings. Definitely use Ni-Mh or Lithium batteries.

I dont love it (sheila — 02/16/2009)

takes noisey pics have to remove with corel im calling fuji HQ. For the 10 megapixels it takes pictures like a cheap web cam . very noisey

More complex than film SLR (Bob V — 02/12/2009)

I bought it because I saw how well it took pictures in Auto. I have run into the flash lock problem with weak bateries, perhaps they should have provided a separate battery for the flash. I was used to taking pictures with a FTN with a 1.4 lens so I never worried about low light levels, so I guess that there is some learning curve to the F2.8 lens. I hope that I can make up for it with a higher ISO #. Not too thrilled with the long delay once the button is depressed all of the way. It does take fantastic photos as I usually print 8 x 10's on an HP Photosmart 3310 and they are very sharp in that size. I also have to learn not to zoom unless I really have to because the higher F-Stop and slower shutter mean that my subjects need to be still. Too many functions to learn overnight, you really need to sit and play with it to learn what it can do.

Good zoom, though fuzzy (Charles Norman — 02/11/2009)

Lots of tricks, lots of MPs, good zoom though fuzzy at the extremes,
handy, fairly easy to understand and use.

Great Camera (Peter — 01/25/2009)

I am a long time user of good quality 35mm film cameras (rangefinder and SLR). This was my first digital camera purchase and I have been very pleased with my choice. All outdoor shots in natural light come out great every time. I had a little trouble at first with indoor shots using the flash; most of my photos seemed to come out quite grainy. However, now that I am used to the settings and options that the camera provides, I also get good indoor results. Fuji colors are especially pleasing, just as they were when I used their 35mm film.

Good cam at marvelous price (Aviral Mediratta. — 01/08/2009)

I have been using this cam since 7 months, by now I am fully equipped with it.
This cam has amazing stability over flash and zoom. the different shooting modes and in-built options make it set for all occasions. The only drawback it has is that it has a limited accessories in market. (a demotivating point for camera savvy's).

On the other side, for a general photographic as it is use, its the best cam till date.

Worst camera I've owned. (Angie — 01/06/2009)

I bought this camera to replace a Nikon film camera I had. Boy was I disappointed. My pictures were terrible. They have a yellow glow to them. The lighting is terrible. I messed with every setting on the camera and never could get the pictures to turn out. Needless to say I didn't get any good x-mas pictures. I just bought the FUJI 8100 and love it. It is definetely worth the extra $100.

brilliant but the flash freezes it (candyman1313131 — 01/03/2009)

when you use the flash the screen freezes after 3 seconds or so and you have to take the batteries out to reset it. only if you quickly put the flash down a gain after taking a picture it doesent freeze. apart from thar it's excellent

Terrible (Terry — 12/30/2008)

Camera freezes up when taking pictures with flash "Write Error". Does not record flash pictures and will not operate again without taking out the batteries. Seems to work OK without the SD card in place, I'm hoping that a new xD card may solve the problem. Wish I'd bought another camera.

Broke after 10 minutes! (Kelsey Ramos — 10/06/2008)

I barely had taken ten pictures before the camera froze. Just like a computer- it was stuck on one screen and wouldn't even turn off. I was using the ScanDisk card as recommended, and hadn't even changed any of the settings. I am SO disappointed in this camera and will be taking it back tomorrow for the Canon that I should have bought in the first place.

Quality and Satisfaction (castortroy — 09/06/2008)

There are a few important categories to every model camera sold in a retail or online environment that no manufacturer or establishment can despute, one being the quality of the product and the other being customer satisfaction.

Never let any salesman, company or friend fool you into believing that any product is higher quality than it is or more satisfying to own than it is!

I've sold between 50 and 100 of this particular camera, and believe it when I tell you that this camera is VERY GOOD in both the above named categories. I have had only 1 returned camera, for some reason every 4th frame came out very dark on this particular camera. FujiFilm has done very well in both categories in a REAL WORLD environment with a mere 2% Return rate on this camera.

Amazing price, great pics, good specification (Stephane — 07/30/2008)

As a beginner photographer, I decided to purchase this camera to complement another. This camera has many function that a dSLR has, with an amazing price. Love the Super Macro setting. This camera has a max. burst speed of 7.5fps @ 3mpx. All pros, no cons at this point.

Great compact camera!! (Steve Robson — 07/15/2008)

I bought this camera to up-grade the older S5000 I also own. The flexiblilty of the camera is the same as can be found on a D-SLR type digital camera and a fraction of the price and at a fraction of the weight as well. I find it works well in most situations but there are times when I wish there was a manual focus option but overall, I just love the features one gets at the price you pay for it!!

  • 5.0 out of 5
Great camera (Shannon — 07/01/2008)

This camera has all the gadjets with none of the price. It takes great high quality pictures! Should have a better lens cover than what you get

  • 5.0 out of 5
Love it alot!!! (Anthony — 04/28/2008)

This is an amazing camera, 12x optical zoom + 10 megapixels + high ISO = great pictures. I love the super macro for pictures as close as 2 cm. I get pictures of the same quality as a much more expensive and bulky SLR camera. This is the best camera I have ever used. And it's only the size of my fist. Amd the best part? the price!!! Around $250
