The camera that bridges the gap! 02/06/2008
This review is from: FUJIFILM S700 Black 7.1 MP 10X Optical Zoom Digital Camera
I was very impressed with my initial impression of the camera. This is my first venture into cameras beyond the typical point and shoot cameras. The zoom was very fast and responsive. The very large LCD screen was extremly crisp and clear. Tons of features to keep any geek intrested for hours. I like the option to switch from the external LCD to a display in the view finder. I find using the view finder instead of the LCD when taking pictures makes the image more steady, and to have all the features of the menus on the view finder makes it life easier. This is the camera for a person looking for detailed family photos and better than average vacation pictures.
The incuded neck strap is the only con I can think of at the moment. Its cheap and I dont feel using it will give the security I want.
I am not a professional photgrapher by any means and nor do I pretend to be one. This is a sub $200 camera with features I have seen on cameras in the $500 range. It is not a top of the line SLR camera and should not be reviewed as such. I think this camera with work wonders for the using I have planned for it, family photos and vaction photos. The camera is smaller than I expected for a 10x optical zoom, its not an ultra compact pocket sized camera nor is it a giant professional size camera. This is exactly what I want in a camera, more zoom and detail than the run of the mill digital camera, but without the cost and size of SLR cameras. If you are looking for something better than the standard 3x optical zoom camera look no further.
