The rotary zoom on the lens is the outstanding feature of this camera. It allows much faster zooming and no overshoot. Ths position also stays set when the power is off. (In fact there is little or no battery consuming motorization when you turn power on and off). The manual focus is great with an indicator to show correct focus, and also achieved by a rotary ring on the lens. The camera is clearly not as good as the 9600 because the latter has external flash capability and a cable release ...

I'm using this camera for nearly 2 years now and all I can say is: This camera was worth every single cent I paid for it. Great haptics, great lens, easy to use and decent image quality. The only problems i had with this camera are high ISO values and the fact that a "Hot Shoe" for external flashes is missing.

I upgraded from 5200 just a couple of months ago after searching for a 6000 seller. Now i can see why this cam is hard to find. The 6000 is much larger than the 5200 and is quite mistakable for an SLR. But please remember that is not an SLR. With that said, I think it is as close as you can get especially for this price range ($300.00). Fantastic image quality, fast start up, full control if you choose. There is still some purple fringing but very slight. The manual focus ring and zoom ...

I own it for 8 month now. Flat image is my biggest complaint, especially with photo taken outdoor. I always have to post-process if I want real black. You can aslo underexposed -1/3Ev. Auto mode, and lots of SP modes, especially "natural light+Flash", use hight iso levels, higher than required imo. There's also a problem with colors when taking a landscape in P mode. So flat again... better shoot in landscape mode or pp. Manuel focus !? I've never success in achieving a proper focus. Too slim ...

Bought a 6500 second hand and sold my Sony H5 to finance it. Firstly, the Sony was a superb piece of kit, but had image noise beyond iso 400 (well 200 if you looked really closely on the computer). I got the Fuji knowing that the sensor was larger and with a slightly smaller pixel count. I still own a Sony R1 and having used the H5, R1 and several other cameras including a Fuji F10 I feel informed enough to share my thoughts. The 6500 performs well. The sensor displays visibly less noise ...

An update of my earlier review. After getting used to the camera, I've increased my score for the image quality. BUT to get the best from this camera in contrasty scenes, shooting RAW is required. Ease of use marked down because self-timer has to be re-selected for every shot. "Manual focus" feature is difficult to use. Stick below ISO 200, use a tripod where possible and be prepared to shoot RAW and you can get some wonderful results Problems: Tends to over-expose. Poor exposure of contrasty ...

I've taken thousands of images over the last year with this superb camera and I just love it. The manual 28-300 zoom is a perfect range for me and the lens is very high quality. I now tend to use Aperture priority a lot which gives great depth of field control. It's got a strong flash and in low light the no flash performance is good if you bump up the ISO - not too grainy up to ISO1600. It's got a much larger sensor than most digicams which really seems to help. Problems: Occasionally ...
