Fujifilm Finepix s408

Hi Guys!

I'm only really new to birding and looking for a camera...On a budget and saw this at Jessops for 179.

Has anyone got any reviews on using it for bird photography? Does it take good photos? And any other points would be great.

Thanks!

If you could afford another 80 I would look at the Fuji HS20 if possible.

I've just bought the hs20 over the s4080 as I found that a) the s4080 was too compact for my hands, the hs20 feels much better and stable; and b) the manual zoom of the hs20 is great for bird pics. Just remember not to expect great results straight away. First trip out with the hs20 today and loved it. Kept fiddling the settings and after a few hours got some great shots. Would definitely recommend spending a little more.

I ended up buying the camera and all my photos are on my Flickr, all using the camera.

Good camera! Clear shots and offers great photos for starters who are only just starting photography.
