Summary: This camera is light weight and seems to be pretty durable. I think it is great for someone who wants higher quality pictures and more options but is not a proffesional. It is a goodstepping stone. It is SLR like in the fact that is has dual image stabalizers.
Summary: Likes: Great lens, continuous autofocus in burst/multi-frame modes, ability to record images in TIFF/RAW formats, dual media slots (provision for CFII or microdrive), tilting LCD screen, and SLR-like handling in a 20 ounce package. Dislikes: manual zoom control only. I bought this camera as an upgrade from my S-602z (one of the first in this line of cameras) due to the diminishing supply of smartmedia cards available at reasonable prices.
Summary: This camera is worth every penny i had other digital cameras before and they worked fine, I thought it was time for an upgrade so I decided to look at the fuji , i had no regrets its worth the price and the features is awesome especially the the lcd screen at the back of it.Its detachable feature makes photography more and more amazing,thanks to amazon and its affordable prices ,anybody want an affordable digital high quality camera try this fuji finepix s9000
Summary: Purchased this camera for work and its proved a versitile camera that produces good photos under less than good conditions. The lens resolution is very good and the built in flash is surprisingly good even for longer shots...
Summary: This is the second Fuji camera I've bought. I've had this for over a year now. I sell my photographs at art festivals and show in galleries, and this is the camera I use. I think it takes fine photographs. You do need to study the manual a bit because it has extensive features. It is slow but I don't take action shots. The manual focus us useless. You can set the camera to manual and adjust the speed but the focus is still "auto.
Summary: I'm quite amazed about how some users rate this camera. The S9000 (or S9500 for Europe/Asia) is not a DSLR. So comparing the S9000 to a DSLR is, at least, misleading; it's like comparing apples to oranges. The S9000 is a high-end fixed lens camera for around $600. If one would even buy an entry-level DSLR and wants the same lens performance, one has to buy 3 separate lenses: a wide-angle, normal and zoomlens.
Summary: A powerful and capable camera in its own right, that can take stunningly good images let down only by glaring usability issues. The overall performance envelope is head and shoulders above any prosumer class camera on the market. The only cameras that can best the s9000 in performance, handling, build and image quality are current dSLR's. And even then, not by much.
Summary: I left my Fuji Finepix 9500 (same model as 9000 in US) on the plane back from Beijing a couple of weeks ago, and it hasn't shown up. Which means someone has got their hands on a good camera, although not without its faults. I've been an 'advanced amateur' photographer for about 30 years and carried a heavy bag full of my beloved Minolta lenses and camera bodies for 25 of them.
