Review posted for Fuji FinePix S3100|

Fuji's made a practice of developing good-quality digicams that sell for rock-bottom prices.
Following this trend, last year's FinePix 2800 and 3800 Zoom cameras turned out to be exceptional values for the money, and the updated FinePix S3100 carries forward this tradition with the addition of a 4.0-megapixel CCD.
The S3100's higher resolution is a welcome improvement, providing great image quality for a budget-priced digicam, and its 6x optical zoom is excellent for distant subjects. Though it lacks "enthusiast" features such as full manual exposure options, the S3100 does offer an adjustable aperture setting, adjustable flash intensity, and a selection of preset "scene" modes.
For everyday outdoor shooting, the S3100 does very well and really sets a benchmark for an affordable long-zoom digicam. Check it out!
