One of the best bridges available even against new models
Large super CCD has better image quality than newer models like HS10/20.
Lens has no soft corners and has OPTICAL Image Stabalization. It is also a manual twist barrel zoom for precise control.
Better than most dynamic range thanks to Super CCD EXR sensor arrangement.
Good control layout.
Good Image qualtiy up to 1600ISO. 3200ISO usuable for small print.
Raw format available (RAF).
SDHC comaptible ( No stupid XD cards.)
1/4000 max shutter speed.
Noise reduction control.
Average Focus speed.
Manual Focus system unusable in most situations.
Lackluster EVF and rear LCD.
Menu system complicated for beginning users.
Plastic (but durable) body construction.
No articulating sceren like S100FS (but bigger size LCD).
Somewhat old 640x480p Video mode. No HD.
If you want Good IQ with great control layout, and dont care for video, get this. It is a older model but still comparable to newer models from FUJi, panasonic, sony and canon. Until the new Fuji XS-1 is out, and they fix the white orb issue, this is still the best along side the S100fs.
