4.0 out of 5 stars Great Price for a camera close to an entry-level DSLR, May 14, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fujifilm FinePix S4200 Digital Camera (Electronics)
The camera is not an entry-level DSLR, but contains enough features that it will give you that feeling. It has more advanced features than a standard point and shoot. I like the fact that I can make manual adjustments for more complex shots. The focus takes some getting used to but for $200, it was a good purchase. I use it for fashion shoots and I get very good stills, but have not tried the video since I already use a High Definition camcorder for our video work. Since I have had it a very short time, will give better review when I have had time to play with it. BTW, very sturdy built like the more expensive SLR cameras that are out there.

Does this have manual focus? If not do you have any tips as to how I could achieve this? I just bought it and it has shipped and I completely overlooked and forgot about that....

C. Marie, The camera is primarily Auto-Focus, I am sorry for the write-up (should have been more clearer) the manual adjustments I was referring to were the option provided by the menu but by pressing the shutter button half way you can help the camera achieve a better focus in conjunction with the optical zoom feature.

However the manual adjustments that I spoke about are really a set of options that you can configure to achieve the best shot. There are variations that do not exist on a standard point and shoot camera. In SRAUTO (Scene Recognition) The camera analyzes the composition and automatically selects the appropriate mode. In AUTO, it is standard as in most point and shoot cameras. There is a position called SP which stands for Scene Position and while it does not actually manually focus, there are a number of options that you can choose from based on your composition, subject and lighting, it is actually a menu of different shooting options that are manually chosen.

I hope this answers your question and I like the camera, it has the feel of a much more expensive camera and the pictures are quite good. Sorry for the confusion.

Thank you so much. I don't think I'll be too disappointed.
