Excerpt: My first experience with a digital camera with face detection that really works, the Finepix S6500fd. I’m not so glad with the xD memory card because it’s more expensive and slower than the SD card. The Fujifilm S6500fd image quality with low light is excellent, and the video quality is also good. The software is not very easy to use.
Summary: The Fujifilm 6500fd (6000fd in the US) is a bridge camera - between point-and-shoot cameras (those small rectangular things) and proper dSLR cameras (those big, professional-looking ones!) and it serves this purpose brilliantly. I acquired mine when I realised that I'd outgrown my 2 megapixel point-and-shoot and needed something more. I don't regret it for an instant - it's been a fantastic tool in learning how to take better photographs .
Pros: 10.7x Zoom - Many modes for beginners to learn - even A3 prints can look clear
Cons: Grainy above ISO 400, so not very good in low light - easy to outgrow
Summary: The Fujifilm Finepix S6500fd is an excellent camera for just such a great price. I got mine a few months ago now from amazon for £149.99 and got an offer with a 2GB memory card for just £12. I was pretty impressed. But unfortunately, it isn't just about the price, it is about the quality too; but we won't have a problem with that because the photos it produces are amazing.
Excerpt: "I bought this camera because I wanted to be able to produce good quality snaps with good macro functions for closeups. It does not dissapoint. I especialy like the macro mode for nearb objects they look excellent as long as the lighting is good. My only gripe is the lack of image stabilization, and sometimes at night it is hard to get a good shot if you are not sure what you are doing with the ISO settings. Generaly a very good camera for the ...
Pros: Good pictures, great zoom lense, easy to use .
Cons: No image stabilization, large size compared to compact cameras .
Excerpt: "I have had a Fujifilm S3000 digital compact for many years and it is still in good working order but on a recent holiday I noticed its short comings in terms of low light shooting and the lag between pressing the shutter button and the image being taken. So I sought about looking to upgrade, I wanted a Fuji as I like the reliability and interface but didn't want to pay a fortune so eventually I settled on the 5600fd (I had considered the ...
