Fujifilm has not been as popular as the bigger names in Cameras.

I would suggest that you take a look at the Kodak DX-7440.
4X optical zoom and 4 megapixels.
This camera has been a big hit with the owners.

It also has a full set of manual controls, if you want to delve further into photography.

It is one of the fastest cameras on the market.
The shutter lag is only 0.2 seconds.

Here is a look at the specifications:
