This camera is well worth purchasing. It's very user friendly, especially once you have read the manual. It takes XD image cards as well as SDHC. It can only hold a 2GB XD, were as it can hold a 8GB SDHC. Which is of the few downsides of this camera, because a 2GB XD card holds more photos than a 2GB SD card. However overall, this I feel to be an amazing camera, I use it mostly wildlife. I would reccomned to anyone especially some who is new to photography but is serious about pursuing photography.

Good points:
Great zoom, the 18x optical zoom is wonderful. Most point and shoot cameras in this price range cannot reach that far. The noise handling is fairly good as well.
I really like the fact that this camera has the manual option. Sometimes you just need total control over the situation.
The dual image stabilization works wonderful.
It also takes video with is a good plus. You don't need a point and shoot and a video camera wherever you go.
It has a lot of the capabilities of an SLR, but is simple enough to use for people that just want a basic good quality camera.

Negative points:
You have to manually pop up the flash if you want it to go off (Even in auto mode.
The auto focus can be quite picky at times, and has some trouble focusing in lower light conditions.

Great features, a great option if you don't want a D-SLR May 8 2008
By CasinoKing - Published on Amazon.com
Was considering upgrading to a D-SLR type camera from my typical point-and-shoot camera, but I have to admit I was intimidated by price and complexity. I found the Fujifilm S8100fd to be the perfect blend of advanced features, price and complexity level. I wanted something that had a good telephoto/zoom lens and this one is awesome. The stability really helps keep things from being blurry and the advanced modes (multi-shot, movie, flash and no flash at same time [sounds odd, read the manual]) are really cool. This camera helps me take better pictures in almost any scenario. Add in an 8GB SDHC card and you have the ability to store thousands of photos and hours of video. Love this camera!

Love the Camera April 21 2008
By Xavier Davis - Published on Amazon.com
I've had the camera for about a month now. I would consider myself a very amateur photographer. But I love this camera. It's more than a point and shoot but not quite a DSLR, I'd call it an advanced Digital camera. It can be used as a point and shoot but I think as your experience grows with the camera, the functionality and use of the camera becomes one of its greatest strengths.

The only con I have is minor. The face detection function doesn't seem to trigger as often as I think it would (considering 90% of my photos are of my baby son) and often the detection picks up things that aren't . . . well faces.

Other than this, it's a great camera. Even the video capture is impressive. Highly recommended to those who want more than a point and shoot but don't want to commit to the more expensive DSLR cameras.

Great camera for a mom who wants all the moments captured Sept. 3 2008
By T. Pal - Published on Amazon.com
I'm not an expert photographer by any means...I was a frustrated mom who was always missing important moments because my sleek & slim camera that fit into my backpocket would not 1) shoot fast enough to capture the moments, 2) zoom in close-enough, 3) focus fast enough, 4) take pics in the darkest of auditoriums.

I did a little research and in the short while that I've had this camera (2 months), I have found many reasons to love this camera, here a few main ones:
a) The auto feature is truly awesome, as long as you remember to click open the flash - it will use the flash as needed...(drawback - flash doesn't open automatically in auto feature - pro- this is one of the few cameras in this price range that has a built-in flash)
b) It has the most zooming capability for a camera in this price range
c) love the editing features available on the camera - you can crop/edit pics ont he camera itself
d) it has a sports feature that takes like 25-30 pics every 5 seconds (or something like that)....I've tested it and have 60 shots of my daughter jumping up and downs and it captured every strand of her hair flying in mid-air
e) I took pics in a pitch dark room that only had black lights with people dancing and the pics came out looking like all the lights in the room were on and people were posing for the pics
f) I only bought the SD memory card and I can take like 400-500 pics before I have to worry about running out of space (and you can still take the card out after it's full and still take quite a few more pics on the camera's basic memory).
g) it uses regular batteries - nothign is more infuriating than you're camera running out of battery juice and you can't find replacement batteries at the local grocery/pharmacy store when you're on vacation.

The main drawbacks to this camera that I noticed are:
a) there is no Fuji bag that fits this camera...you will have to get your own generic camera bag (don't understand why Fuji just doesn't make one to come with it)
b) It's not sleek and compact (for those potential buyers who are looking for that)....for moms this is not really a problem because generally your purse is the "family purse" where everyone's belongings finds its way into your bag/purse....this is actually one of the mid-range in weight for cameras that are comparable to its features
c) none of the local stores carry this model(Circuit City/Best Buy/Frys/Ritz Camera/etc)to play around with prior to purchasing - I was able to only purchsae it from Amazon - I had to guess when comparing to other models in the store in terms of size/weight/feature capabilities/etc.

I've already made some amazing photobooks from the pics that I've taken from this camera.

Fuji Comes Through Again! May 31 2008
By Video Man - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
We have had a Fuji S5000 for about 4 years, shot over 18,000 pictures with the camera. We shoot pictures of our daughters softball, 5 sequential shots at a time. It really adds up on the picture count, of course we don't save all of those pictures. You always get at least one good one out of five. Wanted to replace the old S5000, internal battery backup had died. When you replace the batteries, had to reset the time, date, etc.
Did a lot of research for a replacement and settled on the Fuji S8100fd. The two biggest reasons was: 1) Option for 7 Frames per Second or 16 Frames Per Second. 2) 18x Zoom.
We have been very, very, very pleased with the picture quality and the very high frame rate. It was a great purchase!
Cons: Cannot screw a filter on the end of the lens, that option has saved the lens on the S5000. We do not like the lens sticking out, ie not protected like the S5000. Will have to be a lot more careful with the S8100fd.
Would buy it again! Great Fuji product!

A really GOOD camera!! June 2 2008
By Philip Schneider - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I am not a photographer, and I have no wish to set this and that and that and that in order to take a picture, nor do I want to trust an auto that produces pics that nobody wants to look at. THIS CAMERA SOLVED THOSE PROBLEMS. I use auto and sometimes the anti-shake and sometimes the fast shot for moving objects, that's it. On 18x full optical, the shots are better than anything I've ever gotten on a digital (and I've had three or four of slightly lower price).
If you're like me, and simply want a camera that will take the shots you expect without undue preparation and messing around, this is the camera for you.
