Fuji S8500 16MP 46x Optical Zoom Bridge Camera w/Full HD Video & Accessories - 503233
Great Camera works well in all conditions, The zoom function is amazing great quality images from any distance. You need to fully read all the instructions before you use this camera to get the best out of it. I am new to using a bridge camera and have found it very simple to use. It has some great advanced features instead of just shooting in auto all of the time. The battery life is also very good on this camera which I am also very pleased about. The added extra of a carry case and SD card makes this camera a great buy.

Great camera, but you really need to download instructions and take time with it. The zoom is amazing, and have taken some great close up pics of a kestrel with it. Still trying to get to grips with some of the special effects. Overall have found it really easy to use and happy with the pictures so far

I have taken a long while to write this review as I wanted it to be fare because it has taken me sometime to get used to using the camera . For me, and I am a basic photographer, it was a matter of actually using, and playing with the camera. I read the User Booklet to get the basics. My photo's are improving each time I use it and it's feature packed. I like the weight of the camera, the size of the camera and the case. Very pleased with it.

Not up to expectations
I don't know why I'm writing really, because it has all been said, but if we all pull together I'm sure Fuji will take note and maybe make some changes. I too, found the battery compartment fiddly and the four ordinary batteries are just not on. I was swayed to order because of the super long zoom, which, to be fair, was quite good, but the quality of the pictures was the final nail. I took a succession of photos, same item, same lighting etc.with this and my Panasonic.(also from QVC) When compared wasn't a patch on it. The colours were very muddy and the sharpness non existant, couldn't read writing on things that I had taken. So, it has gone back and I will carry on with my lovely Panasonic.!
