Fujifilm SL1000 - A Great Camera After All
10 months ago

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 Orion

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.

Regards

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.
