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
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: The Fujifilm s1000fd is a good camera. I need to get that established. The photo quality is excellent for the most part, and it has quite a deal more versatility than a standard Point and Shoot camera. That said, it has many flaws. It falls down to a choice--it's a darn cheap camera, so if you're willing to compromise for some things, you'll end up on well. Pros: The photo quality is pretty darn good. 10 megapixels.
Summary: I bought this camera off of amazon which was the best buy becuase everywhere else was $250, i paid $190something w/ a free memory card/free shipping... also the shipping was super fast.. i ordered it, online it online on a friday said i had to wait until the following Thursday to get it and it was in my mail that Tuesday.. so i was super excited about that!..
Excerpt: This little fuji has everthing i was looking for in a high zoom camera without the over complex bulky nature (not to mention price)of a full slr. At the superbike races I have managed to gain some impressive results with a few adjustments to the settings. overall very impressed.
Pros: aa batteries. 2500mah �4.99 for 4.
Cons: Going to exchange it tomorrow as flash doesnt open all the way.Otherwise its been faultless.
