i have fujifilm s2950 which am very happy about. it came at low price and its entirely worth the money.

- has good battery backup
- sharp images (based on light conditions and ISO though)
- natural saturation levels (unlike canon & sony which produce high saturation images)
- quick start up
- very useful viewfinder
- quite a many shooting modes
- user friendly UI
- sturdy build quality (again not like canon powershot series)
- has a serious photographerish feel around it
- LCD display is truthful. pictures are generally as seen in LCD.

@prag : the reason why your photos are not sharp enough are probably because of poor lighting / wrongly set ISO. also ensure the objects are clearly in focus before you click away. you can keep the camera on a fixed object and take snaps using timer , in case you are attempting to take some 'slow shutter snaps'

besides , nikon l120 is a complaint camera. as i received feedback from a camera servicing agent , some of the l120 cameras have sensor problem (half of sensor suddenly dies) which is not covered under the warranty and very expensive to replace. Fuji has no such problems.
