love my fujifilm Finepix S1000fd digital camera!
9 September 2012
Excerpt: My brother bought me this camera for Christmas in 2007. It was an upgrade from using my mom's 7MP camera. I'm a wannabe amatuer photographer and there's few things I love like taking the perfect photo. I sometimes have a hard time getting it to focus where I want and it doesn't take really good pictures with poor lighting/indoors.
Fujifilm Finepix S1000fd is good, but not fantastic.

Excerpt: I was in the market for an excellent camera - I was looking at DSLRs and I had just started working. I agreed with a family member that she would a certain portion towards a DSLR and because I was working, I would wait a couple of paychecks and put the rest down and get a REALLY good camera as I wanted to start a photography business. Well the family member, although her intentions were obviously good, bought me this camera out of nowhere and didn't discuss it with me.
Excerpt: This camera does take excellent pictures, as others have stated, however, it does not have Image Stabilization and therefore, if you're trying to take pictures of your children during a play or something similar, you end up with a bunch of blurry pictures. I was SO disappointed. I loved the pictures I had taken that were posed for and planned.
Summary: I have been very pleased with my previous Fuji camera. This one is very similar except for the battery compartment/memory card being in the same slot and the little door is tricky to close. The batteries can fall out when you remove the memory card. Having these in two separate slots was much easier.
Pros: Easy To Use, Uses 2 memory cards, Uses regular AA batteries
Cons: Battery door tricky, Batterymemory same door
"Easy to use not a good family camera, too fragile"

Pros: I really like the speed at which I could take my pics, other cameras have a shutter delay but not this one, zoom was great and the quality of the pics was beyond my expectations. There are many different features and functions if you are camera savvy
Cons: My biggest problem is that I only had the camera 4 months and the zoom lens wouldn't retract and the camera stopped working with a message zoom error. I took it to Fuji under manufacture's warranty and they said it couldn't be fixed due to sand
Summary: I use mostly for shooting tattoos, I have had both previous comparable finepix cameras and they actually seem to get worse year after year. My first, the 7mp, actually takes better pictures and much faster. the s1000 is very slow with shor battery life, colors are not nearly as vibrant. the software runs real weird on my vista computer, and the inner ring of the lenstube is not threaded anymore so it is not adaptable for UV filters, lens protection, ect.
Pros: Comfortable Controls, Easy To Use, Strong Construction
Summary: I'd call this a beginning intermediate camera with lots of great features that you can't beat for the price. I was excited about the 1/2.3" CCD and love the fact that it took inexpensive SD cards and used AA batteries. I'm kinda disappointed in the quality of the image, however. The JPEG Exif v2.2 seems to produce lots of noise in moderate to low-level light conditions. In bright sunlight it's not so apparent.
Pros: 12x Optical Zoom, Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Quiet, Small Lag Time, Strong Construction
