  • Summary: this is good camera, but in less than year i already lost one dial button and flash doesnt stay in the sleep position. i treat it gently, i keep it always in the case and don't kick or smash it. but it's fading. cheaply made, i guess.

Fujifilm FinePix S9000 Review with update at the end

James B. Hewin "jameshewin.com", Amazon
16 March 2007
  • Summary: I had high hopes for this camera when I bought it. My goal was to find the best fixed lens digital camera (often referred to as DigiCams) on the market that fit my particular needs. I wanted a DigiCam instead of a digital SLR because I hate changing lenses often and I didn't want to deal with dust on the sensor. My needs: 1. At least 8 megapixels 2. Fast shutter response (very little lag between the time you push the button and when the shutter fires. 3.

Fell short of expectations

  • Summary: Since I have zero intention of carting along extra lenses and want the LCD view instead of TTL, a D-SLR is just not for me. Therefore, the S-9000 appeared to fit my requirements perfectly. So much wanted to keep the camera - an upgrade from my Olympus C4000 - it had all the features that I wanted - a long zoom with wide angle, Electronic viewfinder, manual zoom, swivelling LCD, lots of easy to access manual controls. After a week, I landed up returning it - with a sigh.

Falls short.

Jorj Niemi, Amazon

  • Summary: A few years back when I decided to get into the digital world I started with Minolta's Dimage 5. It was a good camera, but ate up batteries way too fast - 35-40 shots was all I could get. I then decided on Fuji's 3800, and what a pleasant surprise. It was only 3MP but the shots were very good. After a while I upgraded to the S5000 and again I was pleasantly surprised. Fuji came through again.

My S9500 Review...

Steve Picler, Amazon
15 November 2006
  • Summary: I purchased my S9500 after weighing up all the other options out there (well, most of them). I wanted an SLR-like camera with first and foremost a good/great zoom range. Second to that I wanted manual control over shutter speed, aperture etc whilst still being able to stick it into Auto mode when I was feeling lazy, and lastly I was on a fairly tight budget (around the £300 area) so I couldn't exactly spend out on a £800 Canon!

Fuji FinePix S9500 - notes on upgrading from a Compact

Claire de Lune, Amazon
10 October 2006
  • Summary: I bought this as I wanted to upgrade from a Digital Compact and didn't want to fork out for all the associated paraphernalia (lenses etc)that you need for an SLR. I was also attracted by the powerful zoom. My first response was disappointment - it is heavy and some of the controls are quite small and difficult to operate. You really do need a tripod to make good use of the zoom, which means more stuff to lug around.
