Fuji Finepix S9000

29 September 2011
  • Summary: Above all, the Fuji Finepix S9000 delivers images of outstanding quality. Indeed, no current September 2005 fixed-lens digital camera delivers such nice images. For that alone, the Fuji S9000 deserves some serious consideration. There are other things to like about the S9000 and, as no camera is perfect, some things to dislike. To find out  how  the Fuji S9000 measures up, check out neocamera's full-review of the Fuji S9000 , our most in-depth review ever.
  • Pros: Superior image quality, Very low noise up to ISO 1600, Mechanical wide angle 10.7X zoom lens, Electronic manual focus ring, Effective focus assist lamp, Super macro up to 1cm, Nice saturated colors, Great build quality, Powerful flash
  • Cons: No focus distance in manual focus, F4.9 Maximum aperture at telephoto, Poorly designed menu system, Slow focusing at telephoto, Slow switching to playback mode, Weird ergonomics (, Very occasional purple fringing

  • Conclusion: I think - with the possible exception of the Panasonic FZ30 - it's fair to say the S9000 is the about as close any manufacturer has ever come to producing a fixed-lens camera that offers real SLR-like handling and operation. It certainly looks like a DSLR, and at lower ISO settings it produces results you have to look at very closely before you can see they're not from one.
  • Pros: Excellent resolution, lots of detail, Useful zoom range with real wideangle and good telephoto, Excellent color rendition, Very low noise up to ISO 400; ISO 800 usable, Comprehensive photographic controls, Fast and responsive operation, Very reliable focus and exposure, Excellent handling, Focuses well in low light, Bright, clear screen and large, clear viewfinder, AF illuminator, Raw option, Program shift, 640x480 pixel, 30fps movie mode, Good battery life
  • Cons: Minimum focus distance too long in normal mode, worse in high speed mode, Rather pointless super macro mode, Small screen, Some highlight clipping problems in high contrast/very bright scenes, No image stabilization, Occasional focus errors at long end of zoom, Some purple fringing and corner softness, Unimpressive burst modes, Slow write speed with CompactFlash, Poor menu system, Raw mode hidden deep in menu system, No fast access to white balance, ISO 1600 very nois...

Fuji FinePix S9000

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The Fuji FinePix S9000 is a good choice if you're looking for a superzoom that offers very good image quality and lots of useful features, but the smallish LCD and high price keep it from unseating our Editors' Choice.
  • Pros: Excellent manual zoom ring. Lighter and smaller than our Editors' Choice, the Panasonic DMC-FZ30. Very good picture quality.
  • Cons: Slow burst rate. Small LCD for today's market. Expensive. Some noise because of Real Photo Technology.

  • Conclusion: Fujifilm FinePix S9500 - Design The design of the Fujifilm FinePix S9500 is well thought-out. The buttons are in the exact right spot and carry a clear symbol. Most buttons feature a single function, which makes it well arranged and organised. It's fairly pleasant having to turn or press the button firmly. You don't just adjust a button on the Fujifilm S9500. Apart from one button; the switch for focussing, that adjust easily.

tweener camera that offers features from point and shoot and DSLR digicams

Consumer Electronics Net
13 June 2006
  • Excerpt: With the advancements of digital cameras, two camera types have emerged as the most popular, the inexpensive point and shoot cameras that are relatively compact enough to take anywhere, and the more traditional digital SLR, full size cameras that feature high megapixel imaging capabilities coupled with the benefit of interchangeable lenses and flash units.

Fujifilm FinePix S9000

Photoxels
14 November 2005
  • Summary: The Fujifilm FinePix S9000 is one of the new generation of Fujifilm digital cameras with the 5th Generation SuperCCD HR image sensor with low-light capability. With 10.7x optical zoom and 9MP resolution, the Fujifilm S9000 provides very good to excellent image quality, though not approaching the exceptional low noise capability of the F10. Noise is low at ISO 80, 100, 200 and 400.

  • Excerpt: The Fuji FinePix S9000 ($699) is a full-featured, high resolution ultra zoom 9 Megapixel camera. The S9000 (also known as the S9500) uses Fuji's 5th generation SuperCCD sensor, with the most noticeable change since the previous generation sensor being the lack of an interpolated mode. The sensor is nine Megapixel and so are the resulting images.
  • Pros: Very good photo quality (though see issues below), Good high ISO performance for a non-SLR camera, Nice focal range for an ultra zoom, 28 - 300 mm, Solid, SLR-style body with manual zoom/focus rings, Full manual controls, Fast startup, focusing, shot-to-shot speeds (assuming you're not using RAW mode), LCD/EVF usable in low light, AF-assist lamp, good low light focusing, Hot shoe and flash sync port for external flash, Useful Natural Light, Anti-blur modes (though see...
  • Cons: While better than fixed lens cameras, images are noisier than similarly priced D-SLRs, Anti-blur mode works at stabilizing images, but increased noise limits output options; optical image stabilizers are better for this, Sluggish performance in some areas: RAW recording, continuous shooting write times, playback mode, Camera offers RAW mode but no software to do anything with it; RAW option is buried in setup menu, No focus distance shown on LCD/EVF in manual focus mo...
