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: Read the 4 & 5 star reviews here & you'll get an very good idea of the capabilities of this camera, it is an excellent camera for those who want a lot more control over thier pictures. Ignore the 3 & below star ratings, they're obviously by people who want a point-n-click job that gives pro' results, sorry, it doesn't happen! And whislt the camera body is plastic, irrespective of it's 'feel' (???) the built quality is excellent.
Summary: Based on the other reviews here on Amazon, I ordered this camera. I wanted a camera that had a good optical zoom lens yet was easy to use (as a replacement for a 3 year old Canon A80). Amazon's delivery was great - using the next day option, it was ordered at 4pm and arrived at 10am the following morning - brilliant. It takes great photos and the lens is superb - easy to operate but with full manual control if needed. At the price, I think this camera is unbeatable.
Summary: I was looking to upgrade from my Casio Exilim 'snapper' and this seemd to tick all the right boxes. Superb price and value for a lot of camera. The manual zoom function is incredible although I suspect I'll need a tripod for close-ups. The LCD screen can be turned off to save power and the viewfinder can be activated instead. The operational aspects seem fairly simple, nothing too complicated to get my head around and quite intuitive.
Summary: I have been using the S6500 now for about a week and am rather impressed with it, the manual twist zoom is a nice touch and very accurate, another nice touch is the 1cm super macro mode and the large lcd, the quality of the pictures is also very impressive. The down side to the camera I think is the rather cheap looking control knob, lens cap and the lack of auto zoom.
Excerpt: Ce bridge est vraiment très convaincant, j'ai surtout apprécié sa réactivité, son capteur sensible pour des photos toujours possibles lorsque la lumière faiblit (le soir par exemple) et son zoom manuel qui permet de cadrer les photos très rapidement sans faire de bruit même lors d'une vidéo. Les batteries sont standard ce qui permet d'utiliser des piles quand on a oublié le chargeur, ce qui n'est pas le cas des accus propriétaires.
Summary: Llevo algo más de dos meses con ella, y me parece estupenda. Hace unas fotos con muy buena calidad, los controles son sencillos a la vez que complejos, es muy intuitiva y versátil. Su enfoque es muy eficaz, hasta el punto en que al usar el enfoque manual, en el visor y la pantalla se muestra un zoom digital para ayudar a enfocar. Éste y el anillo de zoom son increíblemente suaves y precisos, y la empuñadura es perfecta.
