Performed well for many years - Sort of a dinasaur now though

Summary: Worked well when we bought it many years ago... however it's sort of a dinosaur now. We recently switched to a newer Canon camera. However, when I bought this camera, I was satisfied with it for several years. No problems...
Summary: I have since sold it to a friend. I used it for 5 years and it was a work horse, great pictures I had a lot of complements on its pictures. Only problem is they dont make this any more. New owner dropped it and battery door broke and we cant find any parts.
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.
Summary: This was my first digital camera, other than a Nikon L4. My previous photographic equipment experience spans 35mm through 120; 4x5, and 8x10 view camera formats; and darkroom work. I currently do not print larger than 8"x10", at a minimum of 300 dpi. I am enjoying the camera.
Finepix S9100- cheap plus good (but not excellent) performance

Summary: This camera is amazing for its kind. It has complete manual controls, so you have the advantage of being able to explore those. As a serious hobbieist, you will love it. It's really good for students like me, who cannot afford even an entry level dSRL.
Summary: Love most about this camrea- but they still haven't changed items that need it real bad. Then The Fujifilm S9100 would be close to perfect; 1) A sure proof battery compartment lock that works 2) A push-button stop lock for mode dial.
Summary: I have owned this camera since November 2006. I would have liked to have given the S9100 five stars, but the auto mode leaves something to be desired. To get the best images, you really need to use the manual settings. I have had excellent success in all areas with this camera.
Summary: I bought this camera as something a bit more capable, but not as expensive as an SLR. With a zoom equivalent to a 300 mm lens on an SLR, I certainly saved myself a heap of money over buying an SLR setup with the same capacities. I use this camera mostly in manual.
Summary: With this camera I have nearly all of the features of my SLR film camera with 5 lenses. Additionally, the 9 MP Resolution allows me to crop and enlarge as much as I desire. The short battery life is annoying, but a minor price to pay for having so much capability in a small package.
Summary: I purchase this camera with the idea of learning the setting of the SLR type cameras. This camera has all the features of a true SLR, but the lens can't be removed. It takes beautiful pictures, and if you want to learn the in's and out of manual controls it allows you.
