Fujifilm FinePix IS-1 review

I have now used this camera for half a year, and it's fairly quick and intuitive. The flip
out screen is fantastic. All cameras with live view should have this. The manual zoom
ring is also a very useful feature. Hate those button zoom things. Dynamic range is
astonishing i clear sunshine with IR filter on. It has actually saved my day several times
when I did black & white work. This camera is a tool with a spesific use, and as such a
very good one.

Problems:

Hotspot is a problem when bright objects are in the frame. This is easily fixed in
photoshop with an adjustment layer. Took me 10 minutes to figure it out and make a
one-button action of it. All infrared cameras I've used have this problem. I have posted
step-by-step procedure in fuji forum.
