  • Conclusion: Fujifilm FinePix S6500fd Megazoom camera Although the number of pixels still rises, it appears that, for a number of manufacturers, the real Megapixel race has ended. They seek to distinguish themselves through other affairs now. Instead of more pixels, digital cameras get new functionality to make photographing easier and also qualitatively better. The item of 2007 appears to be, among others, face detection.

  • Excerpt: There's no shortage of wannabe snappers , so when this latest instalment of the Finepix range hovered into view, there were no shortage of journos who wanted to review it. None of them, however, sit as close to the kit cupboard as me, so I got to take this 6.3MP beast out for a much-needed spin.

Fujifilm FinePix S6500fd Review

What Digital Camera
4 December 2006
  • Summary: This camera is let down by a poor viewfinder and a combination of over-eager JPEG compression and image noise. As much as I like a high ISO, the additional processing is causing problems
  • Pros: High build quality, interesting technology, good lens range, face-detection feature, compact size considering the zoom size
  • Cons: Some image noise, loss of detail, poor-quality electronic viewfinder (EVF), few on-body controls

  • Conclusion: The Fuji Finepix S6500fd is one of the few super zoom cameras I have reviewed that appears to be able to avoid the dreaded purple fringing. If you have a slightly higher budget you will get more features including image stabilisation, but this is certainly a camera worth considering.
  • Pros: Build quality, Ease of use, Lack of purple fringing
  • Cons: Small internal memory, Portrait shot in lowlight, Glare from the sun causes a problem

  • Conclusion: The S6500fd is the perfect model for upgraders from a digital compact: it offers a clever multi face detection system for group portrait photography.

  • Summary: This certainly couldn't be considered a pocket-sized digicam. But what it lacks in portability, the FinePix makes up for with a sprinkling of advanced features.

  • Summary: The Fujifilm Finepix S6500fd is a rather strange beast which ultimately doesn't beat either the ultra-zoom bridge-style camera competition, or the entry-level DSLRs, but still manages to be an enjoyable camera to use. Fujifilm are making a big song and dance about the Face Detection feature, even appending the acronym "fd" to the model name. It's an effective addition, making it easier for the beginner to achieve better portrait shots.

  • Summary: It's difficult to imagine a way to spend £300 and get more for your money than you do with the S6500fd. It's simple to use, the manual lens is flexible and there are some useful features on board. It doesn't handle like a true bridge camera, but then it isn't priced like one either. I bought the S6500fd after my S5600 was stolen while on a trip to South Africa. All I can say is wow, it has served me very well.

Fujifilm FinePix S6500fd zoom review

14 February 2007
  • Excerpt: Deciding upon the right camera can sometimes be a tricky process. Compact cameras may be small, but they often lack useful features and provide poor optical zooms. Conversely, SLR cameras are expensive and a little intimidating for photographic novices. What many of us need is something in between the two extremes and Fujifilm's brand new S6500fd claims to offer the best of both worlds.
