Fujifilm Finepix S6000fd / S6500fd Review
Where previous mid-range FinePix bridge cameras gave a nod or two to SLR styling, the S6000fd goes the whole hog, right down to the prominent 'prism' bump that houses the electronic viewfinder and pop-up flash. And in fact from a handling point of view the S6000fd could teach certain SLR designers a trick or two; the molded grip is excellent and the proportions, balance and overall handling surprisingly good. Size-wise the S6000fd is also very 'SLR-like', though of course to get an SLR with a zoom range covering 28-300mm would mean a much bigger lens.
In your hand
The S6000fd looks like a compact digital SLR, and it feels like one too; if a little more lightweight. The build quality and finish of the all-plastic body is surprisingly good, and the camera feels well balanced and stable - and it's just light enough to use with one hand, if you really want.
