I've been using this camera for the past six or eight months, and I'm very happy with it, although it's a bit slow when it comes to shooting speed, and the 8 seconds aperture is a bit low. Nonetheless, the quality of the photos are simply amazing, and the lens has a pretty good range, although I do recommend using a tripod when doing long range shooting. here's a link to some of my work with this camera.   https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1551179546534.2071738.1446502217&type=3

Have had this for a couple months, now. Cool little camera! If you're
not into spending $500+ for a DSLR, this is probably the next best
thing. Many functions of a DSLR, but no ability to change lenses. A
little slow between photos, but acceptable for the amateur. Quality of
photos very good thanks to 14 megapixels. I was surprised at the zoom -
18x, but I guess I didn't realize the power of 18! I'd use the word
"awesome", but... One of my must-have features was a viewfinder, which
is hard to find on point-and-shoot cameras. I find it easier to use,
bracing it against your face gives you a steadier hand, and it gives you
a more precise view than the screen. The size is perfect - lightweight
and easy to carry around. Feels good in hands. Grip allows one-handed
shooting if necessary. Videos are clear. Sound could be better, but,
hey, the camera is less than $200! A snap to transfer photos/videos to
your pc, Facebook, etc. All-in-all, an excellent value. Took this thing
to Yosemite twice and got some brilliant photos and videos. Pleased as
puch, I am. The FujiFilm FinePix S2950 one of my favorite bride-camera

@3cf0a7d304919351b3ce369c7c23aa78:disqus : you turn the dial mode to SP then press the menu. If you press it quick enough, it would bring u to the SP selection, if not, it would go to shooting menu then go to scene position (at the very top) and press right. From there, you can change the settings.

I have this camera and i can't figure out how to manually change the settings to indoor, outdoor, sport, night, ect. Does anyone know where to find these?

The batteries will last 400-500 photos. I tested with Alkaline and 2100 NiMH rechargebles.
