  • Summary: to be honest, if you're not as picky as me it is a good camera for the price. 4x6 and 5x7 prints looks as good as any camera I have. 8x10 prints look decent, but anything above is trash (I can print 13x19 with my other 2 cameras with very satisfying results)
  • Pros: (you get what you pay for) cheap 12x zoom, good image stabilization. not a bad camera for $120.00. Came with owners manual (on cd) at least.
  • Cons: (you get what you pay for) alas, no lens cap or strap(didnt expect it, but hoped anyways) indoor shots "with flash" a little grainy when compaired with my older s7000 and casio exilim. Video ok but you can hear motor when using zoom.

Hoping for better quality

  • Summary: This was a replacement to an older Fuji I had. Unfortunately this camera does not have the same picture quaility that my old one had. The big zoom and high megapixels are great, but the pictures are very grainy.

Warning about buying recertified

Stephen R., Newegg
8 October 2009
  • Summary: My first experience with Fuji was horrible. They transferred me multiple times to the wrong departments and weren't nice at all. At one point I was told to contact another number which ended up being a banking number. The camera itself seems good but I'm nervous about the lack of support by Fuji.
  • Pros: Great camera for the price but I suggest buying it new rather than recertified.
  • Cons: Recertified means you'll probably be missing stuff like the USB cable or the lens cap. In my case I was missing the lense cap. You would think this wouldn't be too big of a deal but it is; Fuji doesn't sell lens caps for this model and they don't even know what size the lens is which makes buying...

You get what you pay for

  • Summary: I bought the S1500 for around £180 last year and haven't had much chance to use it until now. I can say that I'm fairly satisfied for the price but this is not a fantastic camera - I can't understand why it's received so many five-star reviews.

Good but not great

  • Summary: I bought this as a substitute for a DSLR camera as I had avery small budget! I always find that it is best to take it off automatic mode as this seldom produces the best image quality.

ramblin' pictures

  • Summary: Bought to take on rambling expeditions so needed a camera that was "Handy" and quick to access. This was perhaps not quite as compact as I would have liked but ........... Great range of photo options. viewing Screen difficult in bright weather. Easy to use. Easy to follow instructions.

Good price, good products

  • Summary: However I was hoping for a bigger camera. I can take good pictures, but I am thinking to invest in a better camera with changeable lens. The case is unpractical, much bigger than the camera and doesn't look so good. I do plan to buy a new case.

OK Camera

  • Summary: I've had my s1500 for two weeks now. It is easy to use, I've not felt that bothered by not having a printed manual. For the price this camera has a lot of features, and provides more scope than basic point and shoot (PAS) models. But. like others I have struggled to get a really crisp image.

  • Excerpt: Через 2 роки користування фотоапаратом ви дізнаєтесь, що не так уже все й класно! У мене сталося саме так. Апарат почав мені писати "ошибка зума", я відніс його до нормального майстра, де дізнався багато цікавого про дану модель.
  • Pros: зручний у користуванні, прийнятна ціна
  • Cons: недовговічні пластмасові направляючі об*єктива, невдале відділення для акумуляторів, дорогі запчастини та їх відсутність
