would be a nice budget mega zoom if it weren't hampered by mediocre performance and a frustrating design With its attractive price less than $250 for 7 megapixels 380mm equivalent and a full set of manual and semi manual controls Fujifilm FinePix 2700 HD  seems quite a compelling buy for the budget-strapped mega zoom shooter.

Fujifilm FinePix 2700 HD which from simply odd in places you increase shutter speed and aperture with the down arrow and decrease them via the up arrow to downright frustrating in others---every button requires a press and hold to you how many times I accidentally ended up in macro mode or enabling the flash because I didn't press the exposure .
