The shutter button takes a lot of finger pressure to take a photo

The S1 shutter button takes a lot of finger pressure to take a photo. Much more than any other camera I've ever had.

Is this a common problem and how can I fix it?

It seems as though the button's switch contacts may be the problem. Looking at an image of the button taken from the ifixit Fujifilm FinePix S1 Camera Interface Buttons Replacement guide it appears to be a sealed unit wired into the button board assembly.

A search online has failed to find a replacement part. You may have to contact Fujifilm in your location to see if the part is available from them

If the button finally becomes unusable and you cannot source a replacement part, an option that you may wish to think about is using an app on your iPhone to take the pictures remotely. (Also for android phones)
