Fujifilm FinePix S1500 review
Aug 27, 2009

I recently bought this camera, & have been playing around with the settings to learn what works best. After all, every camera is different.... I've deleted many pictures as a result, but I've also gotten very good pictures. This camera is easy to use, & has some nice features for the price. It's small & light, which I also like. I'm still learning with this camera, but I've come across a couple of negatives, which I'll mention below....

Problems:

A bit slow when focusing, so you could miss that once in a lifetime shot.

Makes a grinding noise when it focuses, which is also heard in recorded videos. I've been told the noise is a "trademark" of Fujifilm cameras, but if there's any way to prevent it from ending up in my videos, let me know!

A minor nitpick- To format the SD card, you have to navigate through the menus quite a bit to get to the format option.
