I've just bought my first decent camera, a Fuji Finepix S2000HD

I'm not looking to become an expert in photography, I just wanted something with a decent zoom lense and pixel quality to photograph my kids while they were playing.

The S2000HD seemed ideal with dual image stabilization,plusit also had HD video.

But from 200 pictures taken over the weekend, indoors, outdoors, still, moving, with dual IS on/off, in sport modes, etc.. most were worse quality than my old Sony 5mp DSC P93 cybershot.

The shop have offered me a replacement, or I can push for a refund as it is within 7 days.

I'm concerned the camera is beyond my skill level, and to get the best out of it I need to mess around in the manual settings. If this is the case, it is not for me, as I want to just be able to use on auto almost all of the time to just point and shoot.

Comments, opinions, and suggestions welcolme please. Thanks, Jon

Ya! I have this camera. If you noticed I posted long ago, nobody answered. When I first got the camera, I took lots of pictures and read reviews after the fact. I was very dissapointed. Pictures are blurry, I see a purple hue verticaly in bright lights, shots are over exposed, flash is way too powerful. Here, let me give you some tips. I managed to get this camera working and have managed in getting some pretty nice shots after a few practices.

Read my review here under fidel c serrano:

also, read what I suggest here


after playing with the camera, I am able to make this 180 dollar camera take some really good shots! Here is an extra tip, when you use iso 100, increase sharpness, all in p mode, your Dual IS useless. This is because you are forcing 100 iso. If you put it in auto 400 to avoid blurry shots with dual IS is fine.
