I bought this camera as a back up for my S2Pro for professional shoots (weddings, etc.). I could not afford another SLR body, so there it is. I bought it specifically because it had a PC connector and I could therefore use all of my already owned equipment. At any rate, I found that the image quality, particularly up to 200 was very good, almost excellent, and certainly enough to meet my needs should the S2Pro fail (which it never has!). People pics up to 8X10 are excellent and 11X14 are ...

Image quality is bad, noise eminent, and shutter lag is unbearable. Compared to my previous Nikon 5400, the image results are not nowhere near. The high image size is only an eyewash. Features are great, and I was sold for the image size and wide to zoom range, but I am highly disappointed. Problems: Image quality, noise, construction

We bought the camera in 2005 and have been using it all the time. We, both my wife and me, are very happy with the IQ from this camera. The features are good as a bridge to dslrs. This camera is very good for portraits only at good light conditions, but hopeless for landscapes. The in-built flash is a disaster. Whenever we use it for indoor photography, it tends to underexpose the frame. It is not a great camera, but it is a good camera considering the IQ from our unit. Maybe we are just ...

My 3rd digital camera. I am very happy with it. I mostly use it for fun pictures of friends and family, but also managed to make some money using it as a professional tool. I added an external flash, second hand Metz 32 Z-2. If tilted upwards, the flash bounces off the ceiling and gives the best exposure. The command dial malfunction happened to my S9000 too, but it was fixed free of charge within the valid warranty. In my view even today it is one of the best bridge cameras. Problems: See above.

I've been using this camera for ~8 months and i am a little bit disappointed with my choice. Good things that this camera has are: * nice design * ease of use * many features (good if you are looking forward to buy a real SLR) Several things that i don't like: * terrible noise even at ISO 200 (i had a Canon A75 camera before and it produced better results) * veeeerrryyy sloooow write speed even with fast CF cards (RAW file writing takes more than 10s) * the cap for memory card slot is made ...

I have had my Olympus C-8080 for a few years, with its pros and cons (amazing indoors, if you get the white balance right, and the Olympus flash is an excellent complement, while some other issues are not so good, like the complex menus and buttons - 21! - if you count all ways you can move the four way button as one each) and its less satisfactory behavior when used in backlight situations - the LCD is just worthless). But I really wanted a longer zoom, and after some delibitating I decided ...

Ottimo apparecchio, dalle funzioni complete ma non sempre accessibili con facilità. La qualità dell'immagine è senza dubbio notevole, grazie anche alle calde tonalità dell'obiettivo Fuji. Messa a fuoco e zoomata manuale, sensibilità fino a 1600ISO, completezza di tutto ciò che occorre, ne fanno certamente un oggetto appetibile. E' assemblata molto bene, anche se i materiali sono orribili. Display ruotabile (ma molto delicato). Buoni filmati a 30ftps. Problems: Costruzione in pura plastica ...

I bought this model following the failure of my previous Finepix 602 Pro zoom which decided to perform all manner of unpredictable functions including sudden close down only seconds after switch on sometimes triggered by touching one of the control switches. I would have bought another 602 had it been available but the only similar model at the time was the 9500. In fact I have found the camera to be more user-friendly for me as a widlife photographer until (just like the previous ...

I had had the camera for nearly a year and love it. i have had no real problems and have taken some really nice photos. I love the ability to control your own settings. but like everthing i would love to have more control and a better camera but for the price i think it is great. Use the FZ30 and it has some more features but it has a lot of noise and i would have the 9500 anyday. Problems: My dial that controls the exposure and aperture stop working. It would turn but nothing happening ...
