This camera's focus does very well even with macro. While it is an older camera (3MP)for quick point and shoot it is very accurate.

This is my first Digital Camera, I love it. The only complaint I would have is that it has slow reaction. Because of that you have to compinsate. I know there are better cameras out there, but I am totally happy with this one.

My first digital. I loved the zoom and it was easy to use. A little too bulky to always carry around, but not heavy. Unfortunately, it got "fried" in a download session so I replaced it with the Panasonic.

This has been an excellent starter digital camera. Very easy to use and takes decent pictures. I've been very happy with it, but it does lack some of the special features offered in today's cameras.

A very rugged camera. It has been to the top of a 13000 ft mountain, and to the carribean.I take pictures at my farm and use it for work.A real workhorse. I have just about worn the buttons off.

If it weren't for that "hesitation" between pressing the shutter and when the image is put into the camera, I'd think it was totally wonderful. It is my first digital camera and it's done really well for me. It's a great "starter" digital.

At the time it was the best camera I could afford. I like Fuji so stuck with it. I upgraded two years ago and could do with stepping up again shortly. It's easy to use, works great with my Mac and the zoom and macro are very good. It is bulky but I like that being used to heavy old SLR cameras. I'll look at digital SLRs next time :-)

This is my first digital camera. I am very satisfied with the photos taken and have been told that some of the photos taken were of professional quality. I am still learning about taking better quality photos with this camera and continue using it until I am skilled enough for a better quality camera.

I like the Fugi Fine Pix 2800 Zoom for over all photography. I find its point and shoot results are very good. I get very good results with the zoom. I find it's menu has a wide range of options for quality to settings for particular photo situations. I like the movie shooting function.One has to remember to change the flash setting from outside to inside shots and macro inside and macro outside. It is impossible to use the electronic view finder in outdoor lite, this causes some problems.

great camera for the price, which was around $300 when i bought it a year ago. the only downsides are taht it is a little big,here are other cameras that work just as well and are smaller; and that when fully zoomed in the image gets a little blurry. other than that, GREAT CAMERA!

I like the body style and 6x digital zoom. There is considerable lag time and I cannot see images in low light. I wish someone would have suggested a camera with dial programming (like Canon Rebel) for action or portrait shots as I have difficulty remembering how to program.

It was wonderful and close to professional grade & was the most camera for the best deal for the $300-400 range, just 1 1/2 yrs ago, but it is quickly becoming out-dated! It still works great, don't get me wrong, but what electronic item isn't OUT-DATED WITHIN A YEAR these days!?!? I need MORE....more ZOOOOM, more features, bigger screen, quicker shutter speed & more discretion to be able shoot in lower light w/out flash (necessary sometimes)or for better action shots. & IMPORTANT too... better/more power or battery life!! ...WITHOUT SPENDING MORE THAN I DID ON MY CAR!?!?! ANY SUGGESTIONS WELCOME!

A very good camera, although fairly bulky. However, the 6x zoom has now been well-superceded and the 2.1 mega-pixels would not be enough to satisfy the professional. However, this very user friendly camera is a very good first digital camera.

Its great for closeups and with the macro and flash settings the details are great the 3x zoom seems about right for the price. Overall its a really good buy.

Takes awesome photos and is very versatile. Easy to use and understand also. It has a poor service record, however, as it has needed to be sent to the factory 3 times in the first 6 months of ownership.

This is a very good 2 MP camera, especially for the price. Nice images, 6x zoom, and easy to use. It doesn't not have a full array of manual settings (aperture, shutter speed) and it's difficult to see through viewer in low light, but I still give this camera high marks for all-around use at a reasonable cost.

It's pm;y 2 megapixel, but it's pretty good. It takes a fes seconds to process a picture and there are now higher megapixel cameras for cheaper prices, but it's a good camera. Zoom can make the pictures blur.

This is the first digital camera I have owned. Actually I won it in a raffle at work. That being the case I have nothing to compare it to. I am a relative novice in the world of digital photography. What I lack in knowledge I make in enthusiasm

I like the smallness of this camera, it's just right to keep in my car at all times for the 'wish I had my camera with me' photo. I'm not a great fan of digital....yet....but willing to learn. It would have been nice if someone had told me the batteries don't last long. I've rectified this with new ones. The only thing I really dislike about it is the colour, but I can live with it.

The fuji finepix 2800z it's a great digital camera the quality of the pictures are simply beautiful, the movie feature its good, it has a simple menu so any one that has little or no experience with a digital camera can find it easy to manage. what i dont like is that when taking pictures at night if there is little light conditions you can barely see the object.

This is a GREAT digital camera for the $$$. My husband bought this camera for our anniversary upon the recommendation of a photographer. It is our first digital camera. What I like most is ease of operation plus the crisp, sharp colors. The thing I like least is that the camera does not allow for any optional lenses. However, overall, for the $$$, you can't go wrong with this one.

Well I really like this camera, the only draw back is it take's four battery's, and the one's that came with it were throw away one's, so I had to get eight nickel medal hydrid battery's that could be recharged, and also have to buy a 110v to 6v transformer, also I had bought before a fuji finepix 2600 that came with everything but the transformer, which I had to buy extra, but it will not fit my 2800 FinePix, but 4 of the nickel hydride battery's I can use in my 2800 FinePix digital camera but have to buy 4 more because you have to have 4 extra all the time. Also the problem with digital camera's are that after one year, it seem's,if anything happen's to the one you buy, you can't get it replaced. I tried and they were not making the 2600's anymore, that's the pit's. So don't break your favorite digital camera, you may not be able to replace it.
