Hey! You should know that Fuji has released a newer version of this product: the Fujifilm FinePix S2800.

Fuji FinePix S2000HD

We've given the S2000HD a grade of C.

Editor's Review

The Fuji FinePix S2000HD is their first digital camera featuring the latest hot trend, high-definition video. The S2000HD can record video in 720p high-definition resolution. The S2000HD is loaded with fun toys, including a 28mm wide-angle lens.

Initial reports indicated that this would not be possible, but a later revision changed the original bullet point "Zoom function cannot be used during movie recording" to "Zoom function can be selectable optical zoom during movie recording."

Waste of Money, poor customer service and Idiot Salesman (M England — 07/07/2010)
Have had this camera 5 months took it back to Jessops where i spoke to the store manager who told me i had set it up wrong (i have the blue shower curtain) he changed the cameras ev setting and screen brightness to remove this affect, which of course changed the image output and made it totally unusable, after pointing this out he said they could return it to Fuji for repair, recieved it 6 weeks later with a letter telling me there was nothing wrong with the camera, have since given up using it purchased a Canon G11 which i should of done in the first place, compliments my Pentax K20 and K7 set ups with Their Da* lenses 16-50 and 60-250 so i clearly don't know my equipment or how to use it!!!!! I used to work in a camera shop and loved Fuji cameras they litterally sold themselves on their quality and build but the cheaper they've become the worst they have got, will never by Fuji again, my F810 is great and unbeatable compared to many cameras out there

Very Durable Camera (Riley Strowbridge — 03/08/2010)
This is my first camera, as I am leaning towards photography as a career. It is a great begginer camera. HD video is great. Pics a clear. great size and lots of different settings. Now, some flaws.. You can't put filters/lenses on this camera. Which troubles me because the s700 you can, and this is a few steps up and you can't? also, when zooming in while taking a video, you can hear the motor inside, which is no bigger, but can be alittle annoying.

All good except (Teqnine — 01/28/2010)
I purchased this camera about 8 months ago and have used it continuously for that time. I have taken, literally thousands of pictures and it has not yet failed on me. The quality of the video is great. It rivals many video cameras in regards to quality. I watched video directly from the camera on my plasma 50 inch tv and the video was awesome and the zoom does work in video mode. The picture quality in full 10mp is not that good, once you enlarge the picture, some quality is lost, but when I lower the megapixels just a notch the picture is great. I haven't changed any settings as I just don't know what I'm doing, but so far I am very happy with this camera. I recommend it.

Fuji finepix S2100HD (Greg — 12/25/2009)

I have only had this camera a week and so far I love it. Takes good quality photos, has good macro capability, good size and weight, and many many functions. I did experience some blue streaks in the LCD in macro mode at very close range but did not effect or show up on the picture afterwards. I have not tried the HD movie function yet but will post new review when I do. I would recommend the Fuji S2100HD to anyone just getting into digital photography as a good starter camera.

S2000Hd (Hareth — 10/31/2009)

This Camera is very good for photographing Nature. The HD video is the coolest thing in it. and the zoom does work in hd movie mode, VGA, & SVGA.
But the bad part: I have 2200 mAh Energizer battery and it goes fast, maybe 200 photos, then you need to charge them. for personal use, I won't be able to use it as a webcam at all.

Great HD point and Shoot (Pierre Blais — 10/09/2009)

In 3.5 months I have taken over 1300 photos plus many videos. In the description there is a note saying that the zoom cannot be used in video mode(that is false) I have used mine in video mode with the zoom many times. Overall I consider this camera to be a great point and shoot digital camera. The fact that I can take HD photos and videos is a plus.

Great camera for the price (misaxtr — 09/22/2009)

For many years in the past I was SLR lover and had many different type of this cameras. With digital age, I slowly move to this area cause I needed good camera and good video quality as well. HD option took my attention for this model and I decided to invest in this camera. This is, regarding fact that it is still "point and shoot" camera, for me "best buy" product. A lot of programs, pre programed options with night shoots, zoom shoots and all kind of very practical things for easy handling. I experiment with macro, super macro, zoom, landscape mode, sports mode, portrait mode, night mode, fireworks mode and other kind of settings for pictures and it gives me remarkably good results. I so far shoots more than 3000 all kinds of pictures and this camera never let me down.
As to the HD video - excellent quality, I test it on HD TV and it is really awesome quality films I made from our last holiday in Turkey.
What I miss in this camera is hot shoe contact for external flash unit - it would be a nice to have this feature, when you need brighter flash in the night, although you can adjust value of it's own flash in + and - option which is very smart and you can see the difference when you do this kind of settings.
After all, I am very satisfied with this camera, photos are great, pictures developing on the paper are clear, sharp and with good balanced colors.

Bad Quality and False Warranty (Lawrence — 09/02/2009)

I recently brought a Fuji S2000 HD camera and it is a bad quality camera with cheap plastic. After approximately 20 days of usage, the poorly made and cheap plastic battery cover lock has chipped and would not close properly. Fuji has refuse to honour my claim, after a one month stalling, for repair under its so call 2 year warranty and I am currently in dispute with them. I have purchased several Fuji cameras in the past and found that their product is getting cheaper in both price and quality. As they said, you pay what you get. I would not buy another Fuji product and suggest that you do the same.

Fuji should be ashamed of the S2000HD (Adrian — 07/24/2009)

First camera suffered badly from purple fringing, second camera got a good road test, out of 82 shots I was left with a bag of rubbish. Don't expect anything from this camera and you will not be dissapointed.

FUJI S2000HD ok but not excellent (murray brett — 07/06/2009)

This is not a bad camera, if you want hd movies I suggest a video camera is is ideally suited for this use. Sometimes the daylight images seem overexposed and on occasions indoor with flash also.However for the price it does alot and seems to auto focus, image stabilize and have reasonable colour saturation, combined with a wide angle lense and 15 x zoom its not a bad package and I'm beginning to like it more as time goes by.

Fuji s2000hd and the blue shower curtain (murray brett — 06/08/2009)

Im trying to like this camera, however in certain light conditions there is a blue area on the lcd screen which Im concerned about, it doesnt appear on the image, and despite updating to firmware 1.01 it still is an annoying issue with this camera, average image quality and build also, I wish Fuji would upgrade the firmware again to properly sort this issue out, as Im sure many other S2000HD owners are having this problem to.

Better than most users say that it is, needs to be given a "fair shake" (mikercr29 — 05/23/2009)

This is a very good camera, especially in its quality HD videos though it does much better focusing when on a tripod but what camera doesn't? Also, pictures tend to be over-exposed in bright sunlight but this can be overcome by reading the manual and experimenting with the settings of the camera, of course. Hard to beat overall for what you get for a small amount of money!

S2000 HD (Big Joe — 04/28/2009)

We can't get the camera to print photos with a date and time stamp on the prints. If anyone out there knows how to set this camera to do that, we will be relatively satisfied with it.

Non-existing Customer Care (Annick Stenman — 03/27/2009)

I was given this camera as a present in December 08. It has never worked properly. It either over- or under-expose and all red turn out orange or pink (would you like pink chinese balloons or orange American flag??). I have compared many photos taken from this camera with similar photos taken from cameras like Panasonic, Nikon, Samsung, Canon and even my cellphone - all take much better pictures than this S2000HD. My camera was sent back to Fujifilm for repair but I couldn't see any difference when it came back.

Even though the shop where the camera was bought says there is something wrong with it Fujifilm repair department denies it. They tell me nothing is wrong, or refer to the manual, or tell me it's because the other cameras I compare photos with didn't use the flash (!!???!!).
I have been in contact with their repair department on many many occasions. I am put on hold for a long time, ignored, cut-off, given the wrong number or given the wrong information. Their Customer Care department is the same as their Repair department. It means if repair department decides your camera is OK or if they decide to ignore you then there is nothing you can do. After over 2 months of trying I give up - 300$ down the drain and never never again Fujifilm customer.

Worth it (Silvio — 03/10/2009)

Has good quality colours and a very impressive macro and super macro zooming. In low light environment lacks in quality photo sharpness. HD movie excellent. On the whole its a good digital camera and worth the price I recommended for beginners.

Bad Choice (James — 01/21/2009)

I had this glorious peice of junk for 3 days. The LCD was fuzzy, and had a terrible shade of red. When reviewing the pictures taken, the camera would freeze, the only way to use the camera after that was to remove the batteries, or wait for it to auto shutdown. Maybe I got a lemon, but the picture quality couldn't touch my old Canon A560.

I took it advice...spend a little more and by a SLR, it's worth it.

Best Buy ? (greg — 01/06/2009)

I think its a best buy for the price of $233 where I purchased it at Best Buy. How can you go wrong. I don't see it on the current Best Buy listing, but available other places.

Fuji S2000HD (Mike — 12/25/2008)

This is as close as they come to an SLR camera. It has all the feature that can be desired. Picture quality is excellent. Night photos can be tricky, but if using a tipod pix should be OK. Must find the right setting for night pix and take several shots to ensure you get what you want. All in all this is a very nice camera. There are many settings within that will help define the picture quality. The battery lasts for at least 300 pix when not using video. The zoom works extremely well and provides nice close-ups. Great value!

S2000HD (Fujifine — 11/26/2008)

You get it all at a great price.
Why pay more when technology changes so fast. Really every day they come out with a new camera. Is it really necessary to pay thousands? Not when it comes to the Fuji S2000HD. It takes great shots fast has tons of features. It has 720p HD which is great and the zoom works while your recording video. The video is fantastic quality. Don't delay get it today. Don't believe all the Canon hype either. They are overpriced.

MP4v (Little Johhny — 10/31/2008)

Thankfully I did my homework before buying this camera. I managed to find a web site that had a video sample file which are curiously absent from almost every review on the web. Now I know why. Have you ever tried to play an mp4 file! You will need lots of coffee and a few hundred codecs and I still have not got it right!!! In the end the niche market for this camera is someone who wants a half decent camera and nice short video clips. Well they are only half way there in the latter dept. Who needs this nonsense. I didn't buy the camera.
