    I was asking around to see if I should get a dslr and a professional photographer said that this little fuji would have the same quality anyway? Has anyone tried one of these?

    I know nothing about cameras but I used to have a very small digital Fuji, it had great picture quality with a decent zoom and cropping abilty.

    Hmmm... love the design.

    But some of the published reviews indicate the camera has a fair share of "quirks". For a complete review, take a look here. Use the little drop down menu at the top of the page to navigate the various sections. Seems to me that for the price ($1,195.00 at Amazon), you can get a whole lot of DLSR starter packages that:
    1. cost less
    2. don't have quite as many quirks
    3. provide a base platform that you can grow from


    I guess from my perspective, if money were no object, I'd like to have one just for the retro styling and operation. But if I'm looking for a camera to actually take pictures with, I think I'd look elsewhere.

    That's spot on exactly how I feel about this camera if money were no object, I'd have one just "cos" but in terms of value for money there are better cameras out there which I can't ignore.

    I agree with the others. I love the retro look, but the price is outrageous.

    I'm going back a few years now, they probably don't even make it anymore! I can't remember the model, just that it was a small shoot and snap type camera.
