Great little camera!
By Ramona L.
I purchased this camera for my recent vacation since I was going snorkeling for the first time and I wanted to capture the experience. This is a good little camera, I was able to get tons of pictures and videos underwater with no issues. It felt so wrong jumping into the ocean with my new camera, but it worked quite well, pictures are good quality, both underwater and above ground.

Charging Issue Maybe a User Issue?
We've only just begun with the camera, but so far we are quite pleased. I'll update after we've tried it in the water.
Initially, I too was having trouble charging the battery, but then I discovered that I had it inserted incorrectly. It's unsual for a digital camera, but this battery will go into the slot in two directions, but it will only work in one of the two. So if you've tried charging to no success, try removing the battery and flipping it around. The orange stripe on the battery must match up with the orange tab on the battery release. Once I figured this out, it charged quickly and easily.

Nice camera, awful instructions
The camera is nice, and has lots of features, but the manual is awful. Actually there are two manuals. One is a paper manual that comes in the box with the camera. In very small print on the cover of that manual, it shows a link where you can download a more complete version. Both versions are very, very sketchy.
The battery is charged in the camera. A USB cable that connects to an AC adapter and a cable that connects to a cigarette charger are both included. To charge the battery you open the battery/memory compartment and connect the charging cable. You can also operate the camera and external power, but the battery does not charge while the camera is on. Separate chargers and additional batteries can be purchased separately. A higher capacity battery can be purchased.
The camera has a Wifi capability, but using it is not obvious and is inconsistent across the three ways it can be used. The camera can connect to a phone to get GPS data, for remote control, and to transfer pictures from your camera to your phone. It can also connect to a computer to save pictures to a PC. There is a "Camera Connect" app that you can install on your phone, and a "PC Autosave" program that you can install on your computer. If you turn the camera on with the on/off button it comes up in Shoot mode. Then you must use the Menu button, scroll to Wireless Communication, and follow the instructions to establish a connection with the "Camera Remote" app that you must have installed on your phone.
If you turn the camera on with the "Play" > button, then you can press the Wifi button or use the Menu button and follow the instructions to establish a connection.
If you want to transmit photos from your camera to your PC you first have to install you can start the camera with the On/Off button or the Play > button. Then use the Menu button and navigate to Settings. Then scroll to Save to PC and follow the prompts. If you've installed the program on your PC the files will be transferred to the location that you specified during setup. The first time you will be prompted through a setup that connects your camera to your local wifi network.
To record GPS information in your pictures while shooting, you must go to Settings in the camera and turn on Geotagging. Then establish a connection between your camera and phone. (If your phone was already connected to a Wifi network you will have to tell it to switch to the camera's network.) Once the phone and camera are connected you can use the Remote Connection app on your phone to tell the phone to start Geotagging. For the next 60 minutes the location will be added to any pictures you take, as long as they stay connected. (It appears that if you disconnect the most recent location will continue to be added to pictures. This is probably good enough most of the time.) You can disconnect at any time and start the process over. Once the hour is up, if Geotagging is still on in the camera, a red icon will blink in the lower right corner of the camera screen letting you know that the function is enabled and is draining battery.
The camera has an Interval timer! If you try the camera timer you will see that it can shoot in 10 seconds or in two seconds. Or it can wait until faces appear in the frame. You can tell it to wait for 1, 2, 3 or 4 people. Or you can tell it to shoot pictures automatically at a specific interval. You can tell it how often to shoot, and for how long it should continue. For instance, you can tell it to shoot every 15 seconds for five minutes.
The camera takes nice pictures and should be good for snorkeling, which is what I bought it for. It has a lot of nice features and shooting modes, but the manual does a terrible job of explaining what they do and how to use them. Hope this helps others puzzle through them. I'm experienced and it took me using the paper manual, the downloadable manual, experimentation, e-mail with Fuji and a phone call to figure it all out.
