Fujifilm SL1000 - A Great Camera After All
1

I just bought this camera and return it out of frustration because I did not took the time to learn the features and what it can do.  I decided to give it another chance and I am glad I did.  So far I am very pleased with the camera and the photos I have taken. For a non professional point and shoot, it is quite fantastic.  I was using a Canon T3 and although a great camera, I was not happy with the 55-250 lens. I wanted to get closer to my wildlife subjects from a distance and it just was not cutting it. The only things I don't like about this camera is no manual focus and not many choices for aperture.

Very Nice Pics. . .

Your camera delivers great output & lens range for it's price point. . .

24mm-1,200mm ~ $260 online is currently the Best Bridge-Camera Deal in Camera-Land. imho

IQ at 1,200mm looks very good - Keep Shooting & Posting. . .

Cheers from OrionĀ

Re: Fujifilm SL1000 - A Great Camera After All

Thank you very much.  I missed certain features about the Canon like manual focus and more aperture selections.  But I don't think I can get a better zoom lens unless I spend a fortune.  Lenses are really expensive.  So for my hobby, this works.

Really nice images and the moon shot is outstanding! And you don't have to deal with the various (and for some, confusing) settings on the EXR cams. It would be great to see more, especially macro. Thanks for posting.

Hi KJaay,

May we have an idea of how you would rate your experience with Fuijifilm HS50 EXR as against your Nokia P600 and P900? Thank you.

Hi KJaay,

Please tell us your thoughts on Fuji's X-S1 vs. Nikon's P900 & P600. Does the EXR sensor really have a clear advantage? Thanks.

Those are excellent shots maricelli. The only one I don't like is the landscape picture - not level and blown highlights. I look forward to seeing more of your photos in the future
