Fuji Finepix S9100 Review

Review Summary
Reader Score: 6.80 (out of 10)
Hands-on Preview: "An update of the venerable (well, venerable in the digital camera industry, at least) FinePix S9000, the S9100 has enough features to confuse a Ph.D. student. For starters, there's a 10.7X optical zoom, a 9 megapixel sensor that uses Fuji's Real Photo technology, a flip-out 2-inch LCD screen, plus picture stabilization and an intelligent flash system which Fuji claims more intelligently balances the flash output with ambient light.

The Fujifilm FinePix S9100 has most of the features that enthusiast photographers will need, but not all. Like all ultra-zoom models, the fixed lens will either be seen as a major limitation or the reason to purchase the camera. We weren't able to test the performance, but you are stuck with it. With a proper SLR (which is only slightly more expensive), you can swap the lens out if it isn't any good, but you won't get the expansive focal range or image quality for the same price. If users want a 10x or 12x equivalent focal range with strong optics, expect to pay about twice the cost of the S9100 for the body and glass. The 9100 also offers a movie mode for those hybrid shooters - a feature that is still unavailable on DSLRs."

Review (Summary): "The Fujifilm S9600 succeeds the FinePix S9500. There aren't many changes in regards to the previous model. The image quality has been improved, the Fujifilm FinePix S9600 Megazoom camera is equipped with a larger LCD monitor and an auto focus for faster focus under low light circumstances and there are improvements in the flash. The number of Megapixels remains the same.

The Fujifilm FinePix S9600 leaves me with mixed feelings. The camera itself is fine and feels exceptionally solid. It really seems like a camera for the serious user. ...

... the demanding photographer will possibly experience an obstacle when we look at what RAW demands when it comes to the speed and processing in the camera. ..."
