Purchased the S1500 when my Fugifilm S5200 sadly suffered a horrific death by Costa Rican rain. I used the S1500 for 3 years before it also met with its demise in a rocky creek bed (I run in the mountains usually carrying the camera in my hand). From day one I was dissatisfied with the S1500. I was lucky if I to get one acceptable shot out of every 10 taken. Most of the shots were grainy, even in good light. The camera focused slowly, if at all never allowing me to get the shot I wanted. The ...

Have used the S1500 for a couple of months and it has become my travel camera. I use a Sony a100 and an Oly SP350, but the 1500 is just so convenient. Image quality is sharp as a tack, see flickr for examples. It won't replace my Sony or Oly but it compliments them nicely. Problems: No problems, only minor issues, no raw, but I have other cameras for that, and limited flash adjustments, again, others fill the bill.

This is my 4th upgrade of a finepix SLR look camera , Previously had the 3MP, 4 MP , 5 Mp and 7 Mp versions.

It ruins the sound, and is the first one of these cameras I have had this problem with . I tried 3 other cameras in the shop and all had this problem , ended up getting my money back on the ...

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 ...

I bought this camera as an upgrade of my very old 2 mpx compact camera. Despite of not very positive reviews it provides perfect value for the money. The pixel level quality is not in par with top UZ models like Canon SX10 or FinePix S100FS but consinder it is smaller, lighter and cheaper. Images resized to 1024x768 looks very good. I always use SHARPNESS option set to STD or rather SOFT with image sharpening in PC and ISO up to 400. The construction is nice, full black with conservative ...
