2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, April 28, 2011
This review is from: Fujifilm FinePix S2950 14 MP Digital Camera with Fujinon 18x Wide Angle Optical Zoom Lens and 3-Inch LCD (Camera)
Not sure what to say--picked this up expecting it to take solid photos (at least better than an entry-level digital camera at half the price) and almost all interior shots are somewhat blurry no matter what the camera mode. The different features are appreciated, but when the camera takes lousy pictures they don't do much to salvage this purchase...

Long zooms are mostly good for bright sun outdoor use. It is not the camera fault.

It's not his fault, it is the camera's fault. This camera has a lowest aperture of 3.1 and that's just not going to cut it for indoor shooting unless you like flashing bright lights in peoples faces, and that washes photos out. In addition it has a tiny sensor, like most other cheap cameras out there.

The only thing this camera is good for is shooting long distance photos, and that's either on a really bright day or when the subject is lit well.
Not an indoor camera.

Shoot your pics at a faster shutter speed if you want clear pics. Otherwise a camera with stabilization might be better for you.

now what says:
Right about the shutter speed, although in low light that could be a problem unless the ISO is turned way up--noise can get pretty bad.
But: "a camera with stabilization might be better for you."
??? The description says: "mechanically stabilized 14 megapixel CCD sensor and high ISO sensitivity settings which combine to offer Fujifilm's Dual Image Stabilization technology."
