Excerpt: The FinePix S9600 is an excellent, relatively low-cost, digital SLR camera. Fujifilm S9600 has no image stabilization and the night shots are not optimal, that are the only weaknesses. Although, the AA batteries and the manual focus are excellent, just like the 10.7X optical zoom. I think this is one of the best cameras you can buy for this price.
Summary: Agreed, it is a great camera for the price, but it does have auto focus!!! Three focus modes (manual, shutter and continuous) are controlled by a rotary switch "AF-[C-S] MF" on the left side of the camera. Auto focus is quite fast with enough light, and there's a built-in focus assist lamp for low light situations.
Summary: I decided to buy the Fuji S9100 as an upgrade for my present Fuji S5200. I was watching & considering a comparable Nikon, but the going prices were out of reach for my budget. However, I am not disappointed with my choice for Fuji. As stated previously, this camera was an upgrade. With Nikon out of the question, I developed an interest in the S9100 after extensive research & comparison shopping.
Summary: I bought a camera for me to update our picture taking ability. I then bought a similar camera - same brand - for my wife as having similar cameras makes problem solving easier. Solve 1 and it covers both cameras. No other reason. The one I bought for me was cheaper thn the second. Took me several weeks to buy one for my wife at a price close to the price I paid for mine. No problem with anything during the process. Rating for the whole process was good.
Summary: This is a great, easy-to-use camera for the beginner and experienced photographer alike. It features all the advantages of a Digital SLR without the problem of dust accumulation on the mirror or lens, because it features a permanently attached 10.7X zoom lens. The flip-out LCD screen makes low-angle and odd-angle photos a snap!
Summary: I replaced a Fujifilm Finepix S7000 with this camera.I find the features are very much the same only better, Im a camera enthusiest but not into really involved photography. This is an excellent point and shoot camera which takes terrific photos on auto. It has an amazing range of features and if the manual is followed produces photos which most people would be happy with I certainly am.
Summary: [...] Able to track ups.Great camera for general photography. Wide focal length lens. 28 t0 300 mm (35mmequiv).I am having a little difficulty with the use of macro. Probably because the camera is new to me.Noise at 800 iso is noticable, at 400 the noise level is low when compared to TZ3 and nikon p5000.
Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Easy to Keep Clean, low noise ccd, Short Lag Time, Strong Construction
