Fujifilm Finepix S9600

I'm after a new camera and the above is suppose to be pretty good. If anyone has one can you please tell me how you get on with it? If possible a few shots would be good too

Cheers

It is as good as you are going to get without going to a DSLR. You may also conisder the Panasonic FZ8, there is less than a cigarette paper between them in real life. The Panasonic has around 7 megapixels and the fuji about 9, but the sensor in both cameras is so small that the actual difference in the final image is next to nothing, and what the panasonic lacks in pixels it makes up for with a leica lens which is as good as they come on fixed lens cameras like these.

P.S. you could pick up an entry level DSLR like the Nikon D40 for the same sort of money and although it only has 6 megapixels in the real world the image quality will knock spots off either of the above mentioned cameras.

I have the above camera matey. I'm extremely happy with it. It's not too complicated and the results are excellent for what I need.

Thats what I was hoping to hear! I can get one brand new for £230 which isn't bad value for money really. Any macro shots AJA?

I have some macro's on the PC at home. I'll post up tonight

An excellent feature is to set the focus point on an object and then move the camera slightly. I'll show you a pic tonight.

Cheers bud. I've seen some zoomed in shots but they all seem noisy, could be that my friend doesn't know how to use it properly though!

Here's a couple I found on my work PC. They don't really do the camera justice, I have some much better pics on the PC at home -

Does anyone know if the S96000 comes with a lens as standard or is it just the camera body?

Good image quality AJA, but you might wanna knock a little Magenta out of them. Everything's looking a wee bit pink...
As said, the comparison with a similar Lumix will definitely be a battle
of Resolution over Lens quality. Fuji do make several incredible professional
cameras, as well as lenses for the Hasselblad H System. Not to be sniffed
at, even if the Leica tag is tempting...
