Full Review

I received my Fujifilm Finepix S700 digital camera from my wonderful husband for Christmas 3 years ago. I have since then really put this camera through it's paces. One of the worst things I've done to it is I had it in a bag with a bowl of split pea soup that I thought was properly sealed… it wasn't sealed and I wasn't happy! What did make me happy is the fact that my camera still works!! I couldn't believe it either, especially since I was digging green crusty stuff out of it's crevices for the next couple of months!

One of my most favorite things about this camera is that you don't have to know anything about photography to use it! It looks like it's complicated, but all you have to do is keep it on the "Auto" setting and it practically takes the pictures for you! Not only is it easy to use, it also takes awesome pictures that are clear and beautiful. If you want truly spectacular color, you can use the Macro setting and you will be amazed at the professional-looking pictures you can take!

Then there is the huge, 2.5 inch LCD display screen on the back of this camera that is large enough that you can feel confident you got the shot you wanted. You can also zoom in on the pictures you've taken. This camera has 7.1 mega pixels which is more than you will ever need unless you're using it to shoot wallpaper-sized photos! It also has pretty decent zoom for those far-away shots. Sure, there are better cameras on the market, like some Canon's and Nikon's, but do you have $600 to spend? If you do, then maybe you won't be happy with this camera, but if you're a casual photographer taking family photos and you don't want to blow a month's salary on a camera, then you will be extremely pleased with this camera.

The Fujifilm Finepix S700 digital camera also has plenty of custom settings such as portrait, night shooting and action photos. There are even special settings for shooting in the snow and for taking pictures of fireworks! If you want to take a more active and manual role in the settings of your photos, you can set the aperture and speed yourself. You can also take pictures in sepia, black & white and negative format.

In Closing

Basically, if you're looking for a great, user-friendly camera that turns out professional level pictures for a tiny fraction of the cost of other digital cameras, this is a good choice!
