A convential but digital camera

AdvantagesHigh resolution camera that is easy to use

DisadvantagesBulky and pricy.

"...by saying this - the Fujifilm Finepix S3000 is a fantastic camera. My girlfriend received this camera for her birthday a few months ago and while at first hesitant, she eventually let me play with it too. I've used digital cameras in the past ranging from your cheap 'bundled' options to mid-range devices such as the Nikon Coolpix. This is undoubtably a much much better camera. Let's begin with the specs. This camera boasts a resolution of 3.2million ..." Read review

Price, poise and proficient!

AdvantagesCompact, Simple to use, Long Battery Life

DisadvantagesScreen can hide blurred images, Flash isn't the quickest at recharging

"...Currys (who had 30% off Fujifilm cameras at the time) to have a look and I was sold. The first thing about any product that you notice is how it looks. And I think Fuji got this one just right. It looks like an expensive SLR camera. It's silver, and so it looks great in any light (although the black adds a touch of ruggedness to the camera's two bigger brothers the S5000 and S7000). And the dials on the top make it look ultra complicated, and thus ..." Read review

Fuji FinePix S3000 Zoom

AdvantagesGreat features for the professional or the novice

DisadvantagesNot as compact as most digital cameras

"The Fuji FinePix S3000 Zoom is a very stylish and affordable update of the FinePix S304 Zoom. The main difference between the two models is a video-out connection for immediate playback of images via your TV screen. The Fuji FinePix S3000 Zoom has a 3 megapixel sensor, like most other digital cameras at the entry-level end of the market, but it stands out from the crowd due to its 6x optical zoom, which is equivalent to 38–228mm on a 35mm camera. ..."

Great value alternative to Standard camera

AdvantagesExcellent zoom, easy to use, great tv out, great software

DisadvantagesNo sound, Heavy drain on batteries, expensive memory cards

"I have been using this camera for 4 months now, and have even let my 12-year old daughter use it (it really is that easy). The picture quality is really very good - and indicates a good set of optics in this camera. Although it is not classed as an SLR digital camera, it does look like one and has the same advantages (what you see is what you get) the viewfinder is digital not optical and shows the picture through the zoom lens. I paid £189 ..." Read review

Quick review of Fujifilm FinePix S3000

"My S3000 has provided years of no-nonsense quick and powerful use. Manual control via electronic menus is awkward. Good lense that gives clear results. Lightweight and reliable. This is perfect for someone who wants high quality results and who hasn't stacks of time or money to invest. If you are an experienced photographer then you are going to dissagree - you will complain about the; lack of external flash port; time taken to navigate menus and override shutter speeds; etc. If you are a novice then this series of FinePix offers a thorough introduction to photography and will lead you by the hand through (or around) a comprehensive feature-set of expert settings hidden behind a simple interface.

A Good Solid Camera

AdvantagesGood Quality, User Friendly

DisadvantagesA little bulky

"I've always owned a camera but in recent years had almost stopped taking pictures as I took so few each time the film would be in my camera for many months before I saw the results. This changed when I took the plunge and went for a digital camera. Having been a traditional SLR camera user the SLR like shape of the Fine Pix S300 was instanty appealing - it looks just like a mini SLR with its grip on the right hand side. This does have a very small ..." Read review

Great tool for beginners

Advantagesprice, great shape, manual settings, lens adapter

Disadvantagespoor atuo-focus in low light and in full zoom

"I bought this camera to learn more about the so called 'manual' settings of advanced SLR cameras. I found that it has the right shape, settings and capability for an amateur SLR beginner like me and for most users that are anything below the 'professional' level. It is capable of taking amazing pictures, the 3.2m pixels are more than enough for someone printing only standard sized photos and the 6x optical zoom is a great feature! Another feature ..."

Digital Debate

Advantages6X Optical Zoom, ease of use

DisadvantagesViewfinder and LCD screen very dark

"Well after a year of prevarication and procrastination I finally took the plunge and bought this little beauty. Oh it was a fretful time, knowing that in a months time there will be bigger and better and brighter ones out for the same or (shudder) even worse cheaper price. This camera has 3.2 million pixels, 3 million of which can be used up taking your portrait shots, or beautiful sunsets or if your like me great product shots for sales on EBay. It ..." Read review

Great versatile functional digital camera!

AdvantagesEasy to use, great zoom function

DisadvantagesUses up batteries quickly!

"This is the second digital camera I have owned, and one of a few that I've used, and I have to say I've found this to be one of the best in terms of great picture quality and functionality while still retaining ease of use. In addition, the manual menu settings on the camera give you more control over the look of your photos. Pictures can be taken up to 3.2 million pixel resolution which is plenty for ordinary size photos -- I've had quite a few ..." Read review

Light and Easy to hold hated the colour was a pity but no black in this model i would still Recommend this camera for anyone looking for a really cheap but effective camera. Macro Mode is again like most fuji things GREAT good pop up flash hidden away but over time this can become worn and the button will stop releasing the flash but this will take ..." Read review

Fujifilm S3000 an intermediate camera

Advantages6 times zoom is very effective, The ability to switch from auto to manual mode makes this useful to both beginners and the more experienced photographer

Disadvantagesthe controls are slightly ackward to use when using the viewfinder

"I was looking for a digital camera to take me from conventional 35mm photography into digital, but which kept the "feel" of 35mm. The S3000 has achieved exactly that for me; I can still take control and be creative but I can also be spontaneous and use digital imagery to be creative later, on the computer. For the price I believe that this represents very good value for money, rich with features that are actually useful rather than gimmicky. The ..." Read review

An excellent first digital camera

Advantagesexcellent zoom capacity, user friendly. good size LCD and digital view finder.

Disadvantagesfour AA batteries makes batteries more expensive than for smaller cameras. odd shape to buy a case for so I bought a small camcorder case- perfect fit.

"This is my first digital camera but I wanted one with an excellent optical and digital zoom for around £200. This is the S3000. The manual isn't brilliant but gives you the basics to go and experiment yourselves. Takes good clear pictures rom a distance in the dark using it's flash. Red eye and slow flash facilities are wonderful. Ergonomic design. Perhaps a little heavier than others because of the 4 batteries compared to some cameras with only 2 ..." Read review
