Fujifilm has been building this basic camera for a number of years.
Each year they add a few more features.
It has been a good camera and provides the necessary features for the beginner and advanced photographer.
The zoom does not affect the life and durability of the camera.
As with any long zoom lens, for best results you should use a camera support (tripod) when zooming over 10X.
It is near impossible to hand hold a camera steady at 24X.
It is not a fault of the lens or camera... it is the law of physics.
I want to buy a decent camera with good zooming and performance. so, i shortlisted Fujifilm FinePix S4200 Digital Camera.
Please advice if its worth for money. Is it gud in still photography ? Is this much of zoom doesn't affect the life and durability of the camera ?
