My Review 

I have been a news photographer for a long time and use professional equipment, but I can seriously say this is an excellent camera, not only for keeping in your pocket as a "happy snapper," but for taking more serious pictures. Sadly, for those who don't already own one, it's been discontinued. It has a 3X zoom, which may not sound the business if you own an SLR, but this takes up no room at all in your pocket.

It's the picture quality that makes this camera excellent, along with ease of use, with a fair amount of creative ability to be had, too. It's a 12.0-megapixel little gem.

Uploading to your computer is a breeze, and it's fast.

I have been using this for three years or more, and I'm not getting rid of this little beauty.

Well done Fujifilm, for building an all-around winner!

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this camera! You're right that sometimes really nice cameras get discontinued before they probably should to make way for the "latest and greatest" models, but that's just the nature of the digital camera business.
