Good Screen / Viewfinder

One Fujifilm FinePix S4900 owner wrote that it had a good screen.

Good Brand

Fujifilm has good average ratings for its bridge cameras as well as across its entire camera range compared to other brands.

CCD Sensor Type

We compared this digital camera to all the other cameras that have a CCD sensor and we think the FinePix S4800[pl_1735658_price], and the FinePix SL300[pl_1334660_price] both from Fujifilm which has better reviews is also worth considering.
