I owned 4 point and shoot fujifilm fine pix and this one was by far the worst one. I recently sold it to buy a lens of my dslr.
Not worth keeping it around.

Recently bought this camera and so far so good, the weight of it is lighter than this site proclaims and the zoom is as good as you make it out to be the only cons i could find was the vidwo wasnt to the best of standard and that when fully zoomed in you will need a tripod but over all a joy to carry around and extremely fun to ise p.s the camera in the images provided isnt the s4200 its the s 4500

Just purchased this camera...for the price, quite a nice surprise.  This camera exceeded my expectations both with macro photograph and the video...  Again, for the price, this camera has out performed several other cameras I have purchased over the last 3 years.  I highly recommend.  On a final note, I found this camera user friendly.
