This review is from: Fujifilm FinePix 3800 3MP Digital Camera w/ 6x Optical Zoom (Electronics)
I bought this camera about a week ago, and will be returning mine as soon as the stores open tomorrow. My old digital camera is a Kodak (1 megapixel). The Kodak's indoor pictures are much better than the Fuji. The auto flash indoor pictures I took with the Fuji came out looking fuzzy about 65% of the time. I kept thinking that I must be doing something wrong which is why I kept the camera for a week. I read the manual backwards and forwards, I tried all the possible settings...but the end result was fuzzy indoor pictures (outdoor pictures looked fine). The camera salesman at Best Buy tried to talk me out of buying the Fuji 3800. He told me that for a new camera he's never seen so many returned. I thought maybe he was just trying to get me to buy a more expensive camera (or something that wasn't selling well). Now I think he was just telling me the truth.
The software isn't that great either. It takes up quite a bit of disk space and is not very user friendly.
I'm not sure what camera I'll buy now. I'm a little gun shy after purchasing the Fuji 3800 (I thought I'd done my research). I've heard good things about Olympus...maybe that's the camera I'll purchase.
