Overall I think the Fuji Finepix 6800 is a superb camera. I used to use Fujifilm in my movie camera years ago,and the colours were always bright and true. The same applies to this product.I would refer it to anyone but I am not an expert.Go for it. The cradle is wonderful for downloading and charging so no more battery worries. (read more)

Cant figure out how to take nice pictures inside. they are always dark. what setting should I have it on? If its just a little dark out I can't take pictures. I tried taking pictures inside at a wedding reception and they were all dark, even the movie. Is there a way of settin it so my pictures arent dark. Everyone else was taking pictures in the dark but I could figure out why mine wouldn't. Plus they were using cheaper digital cameras. (read more)

The Fuji FinePix 6800Z is a great little camera. I learned to use it by toying with the controls for a couple of hours. The image quality, even at the lowest setting, is terrific. The compact size means that I can take it anywhere. I have not had any problems with indoor pics. In fact, I have found that the flash can be a little too bright at times.
The downside is that it is really just a point and shoot camera. There are few creative options such as exposure or shutter speed controls. ... (read more)

I am not a camera buff, just someone who likes taking lots of photos, and printing the odd one out. My last camera was a 1.2 mega pixel so the difference is very noticeable, particulary with indoor shots. Shame the flash doesn't pop up automatically, but that's a minor point.
I find the 3m setting more than adequate for the majority of shots, saving the larger file sizes for special shots.
Price wise, shop around, the best buys are on the net. Same with memory cards and batteries, save 50%... (read more)

Had the camera a week now and very pleased with the results I had using it outdoors. Colour is brilliant and detail at 3M setting outstanding. Can't understand why I can't get decent indoor flash shots. They are all dark and skin colours in particular are way out. Everything has a purplish/brown tinge. I've tried various settings but cannot get any better. If anyone reads this that has had any luck with flash please email me. firstname.lastname@example.org (read more)

Having just taken delivery of the Finepix6800 I have been pleasently suprised by its simple controls and ease of use, having said this there are ample manual controls if required. I would have liked to have a fully automatic pop up flash, but this is a minor problem that is outweighed by all of the cameras good points, and excellent results. (read more)

The Fuji 6800 gives excellent results every time, and in the top resolution produces near perfect A4 prints.
Well done Fuji, an excellent camera again. (read more)

The image quality from this digital camera is exceptional,the smallest detail being recorded in the high resolution modes.Video playback also appears to be of high quality.Downloads are relatively fast,as is storage after photo is taken.Colour balance is excellent and overall the camera handles beautifully.

The camera is loaded with features and the minute you have it in your hands it spells quality. Being able to have a customisable startup screen is a nice touch welcoming you when it is first turned on.
Picture quality is much better than I had anticipated as I have just upgraded from a 1.3 megapixel camera and would recommend anyone to do the same, what a difference it makes.
Not so sure if I noticed as big a change when I put the setting to 6 million pixels though as it seemed apart from... (read more)

I've been waiting for a digital camera like this for such a long time. With a fast growing technology I have been waiting for a camera to replace my 35mm compact camera. A camera with great colour depth, sharpness, and detail in shadow and highlights. We finally have a camera that can achieve that. I do various kinds of photography, from landscapes to portraiture work. The lens is sharp and very responsive to whatever you throw at it. It works well in all conditions making it very...

I consider the Finepix 6800's resolution to be good but not quite the 35mm SLR standard which I expected. (read more)

So easy to use and it looks very pretty. I printed some images from the camera on my Epson 890 using Ilford Printasia glossy film and the results (A4 size) were stunning.
Downloading is a breeze using the USB connection.
For enthusiasts wanting a great camera that will produce quality results I have no hesitation in recommending this package. (read more)

I won't reiterate the other review done here by Bob, but I agree with most of it. The white balance on indoors looks creamy, and photos tend to blur more easily. When using the 6 Megapixel setting, a lot of functions aren't available, but then you can still get good 3 megapixel shots. Zoom is useful but the one thing that (I think) Bob was wrong on was the lack of being able to look through the screen for the photo - you can do that as a setting, but it isn't the camera's default setting,...

Overall the Finepix 6800 produces good sharp photographs well on a par with other 3.3 megapixel cameras in the same price range. The lens is one of the weak points with noticeable loss of sharpness in the corners and barrel distortion at full wide angle. Colour reproduction is excellent with good bright colour and (usually) excellent skin tones. Indoor shots are penalised by poor white balance whatever setting you try. The camera has a fast action and seems to store a photograph away almost... (read more)
