              I'm very satisfy with my Fuji FinePix S4500. I have this cam just a month ago and already shoot over thousand good pictures from any angle, distance and weather condition. I'd basically smoke my camera. I'd shot from flowers to the full moon in 120x digital zoom with great image quality. Great camera for beginners.
