I have been using a Fujifilm Finepix A-900 for years and I am used to that size and weight so to me the S-4800 is a bit cumbersome. I recently bought it for myself because of the 30X. I wanted to take some macro shots of jewelry for insurance purposes. I found the manual easy to read and understand (it comes in 3 manuals in 3 different languages)and the camera easy to set up and use.

I know the A-900 is basically obselete with cameras such as the S-4800 now on the market, but I am still partial to it. I like the size better, for me, and the pictures/videos from both are comparable. I am not a professional photographer by any stretch of the imagination, so when it gets down to the bells and whistles and all that, I am not the one to give my opinion.

It's a nice camera and it's easy to use and it can fit a small tripod if needed - not just one of the tall, professional ones.

I gave it 4 stars because I just found it awkward to use and it doesn't slip into a handbag like the A-900. I bought a carrying case separately for it.

The specifications I found appealing, because I need all the help I can get, were:

3" TFT Color LCD Monitor
1/2.3-inch CCD Sensor with Primary Color Filter
Built-in Speaker and Microphone
Digital Zoom Approximately 7.2x (up to approx. 216.0x , with 30x optical zoom)
Memory Card Compatibility: SD / SDHC / SDXC memory card
Fujinon 30x Optical Zoom Lens
Shutter speed: (Auto mode) 1/4 sec. to 1/2000 sec
Face Detection
Auto Red-Eye Removal
Multi-Frame Playback (with micro thumbnail)
Mini-HDMI out and USB 2.

I like the camera and will update later is problems sort out, but the camera's lens stopped working literally 3 hours into using the camera this has detracted from my enthusiasm for Fujifilm. I read up some on the internet and found that at least the S4xxx series cameras seem to have this issue in common. The cameras will lock up and indicate the lens cap is still on, there is no real solution other than to return the item and either try again or get your money back.

The camera has some nice features and is reasonable, although if your going to take a chance on a Fujifilm camera the S6800 is only $40 more and has a CMOS image sensor and still uses AA batts and the S8200 is even better at additional $70. But this camera came as a bonus from my employer so my choices were limited.

I don't like the fact that the camera doesn't have a eye piece view finder and uses only a screen viewer. It does use AA batteries has a nice zoom, if it works. The primary reason to like this camera is the use of AA Batteries, which in the superzooms is getting increasingly rare. I won't buy a camera that uses a proprietary rechar-batt system. Canon is so bad that not one of it's camera uses the same battery system, each one uses a different battery model...and disgusting and anti-earth feature. I use AA rechar-batts which is much more green.

The movies seemed a little on the bright side, but I didn't have time to mess with the controls prior to it's malfunction. The microphone worked well and the control are well placed, at least as well as the Canon SX10 IS. The shutter speed was ok, not real fast, but it was faster than the Canon SX10-IS.

Conclusion: If you are going to take a chance on a Fujifilm camera try the S6800 or S8200 the money is only a little bit more, but the extras, such as SMOS image sensor and 1080p movie and superior fast shutter make it more than worth it.

While I am no means an avid photographer, I do take numerous photos in varying light conditions at many different distances. From mere inches to far off shots, this camera has some great quality and focus.

The only issue I have had is while using the zoom at near max, the camera does not like to auto-focus. I have had to zoom back out some to let it re-focus and them zoom back in to sort of kick it back into gear.

All in all this has been a great camera, very easy to use, and has taken some great shots in light and dark areas.

I am a camera nut, i like to take pictures even though i am just an amateur, thats why this camera works for me, the one great thing i really like in this camera, is that if the subject should move, you still get the shot. i take pictures of my dog a lot, and he wont sit or stand still very long, so i can get the shot of him i want. to me, this is really a plus.
i still have many things to learn about the camera, but so far, i can honestly say, for someone that just does scenery and animal or people pictures just for fun and your own enjoyment of the memories, this camera works.

Be aware that I'm not a photographer, so as far as all the technical specs and ratings go, I can't give you much help. What I CAN tell you is that this camera can take some pretty awesome pictures, and is fun and easy to use all the while. I've taken close-ups, sky shots, night shots, nature, movement shots, some black and whites...all within a couple of weeks. There are lots of pre-sets to choose from, as well as a 'manual' mode that lets you control the shutter speed and aperture. So whether you're the type that wants to leave it in automatic mode or want to do something more creative, this camera has something for you. The small printed instruction book helps to explain some of the features quickly, but is expanded to over a hundred pages on the CD that comes with it.

This is what is known as a 'bridge camera' - a big step up from the little point-and-shoots (but still easy to use), with the flexibility and higher quality approaching a Digital SLR...(note: 'Approaching', not exactly mimicking). The result is a fun and challenging camera that's great for a casual photographer like me.

A couple of caveats, though. It takes 4 'AA' batteries, and it went through the first set pretty quickly - after about 20 shots. Of course, I also did a lot of fumbling around setting and resetting things up on the menus, and framed and focused a whole lot. I've already surpassed that with my second set of batteries, and they're still in good shape. So it might have been a bad set of batteries that came with the camera. It's also a bit difficult to see the display screen when taking a shot in bright sunlight.

Edit: December 6, 2014.
After using the camera for 6 months now, I have downgraded it to 4 stars (from 5).
