Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd Review - StevesDigicams

Dec 16, 2007 | Category: Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd

FujiFilm’s FinePix S8000fd is an appealing “Ultra-Zoom” digicam. This is a very capable consumer model, with some very nice features (8M, 18x Wide Zoom, Face Detection, etc.), good overall performance, and plenty of shooting modes for every member of your household.

Image quality is up to par with it competitors (Canon S5 IS, Panasonic DMC-FZ18, Olympus SP-560 UZ) and with a street price of US $350 or less (US$399 MSRP), it offers a terrific value for a camera in this class. The only other issue I had with the camera that’s not mentioned above, was the fact that the camera will allow you to snap a photo while you are waiting for the flash to recharge. In most cases, this just produces a blurry photo that is unusable. That said, I still feel the Finepix S8000fd will make a great choice for any consumer in the market for a camera with these specs, and it’s sure to be a popular model this holiday season.

Fujifilm FinePix Z10fd Review - CNET

Dec 09, 2007 | Category: Fujifilm FinePix Z10fd

While the Fujifilm FinePix Z10fd is aggressively priced, there are other cameras out there that can deliver better image quality for about the same amount of money. Canon’s Powershot SD1000, for example, has come down in price since it was introduced and now hovers around the same price as the Z10fd while delivering faster overall performance and better overall image quality. The same can be said for Sony’s Cyber-shot DSC-W55, or for a little more money its bigger brother, the DSC-W80. Of course, none of these sport the Z10fd’s cute design or dazzling array of colors, but I’d rather be dazzled by images I shoot with my camera instead of images of my camera.

Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd Review - ImagingResource

Dec 09, 2007 | Category: Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd

The Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd was a pleasure to shoot with. And that’s not easy for an ultra long zoom to do. Unfortunately, the printed results from the Fujifilm S8000fd were disappointing above ISO 400, and really not that great at 400, so we can’t give this digital camera the ringing endorsement we’d hoped. If you can remain content not shooting above ISO 800, and ignore the camera’s ISO 1,600, 3,200, and 6,400 the Fujifilm S8000fd is a pretty good long zoom digital camera. But if high ISO is important to you, look at the cameras we’ve tested below that deliver better low light performance.

While we think the Fujifilm S8000fd is a pretty good camera for daylight shooting, with a great zoom and cool features, it just misses a Dave’s Pick due to its high ISO performance.

Canon Powershot G9 Review - ImagingResource

Dec 09, 2007 | Category: Canon Powershot G9

Sure, I wish the Canon Powershot G9 were just a bit smaller to fit in a shirt pocket without strangling me. But at least the Canon G9’s large body contains a lot of good stuff. With above-average performance, a 6x optical zoom, image stabilization, and that gorgeous 3.0-inch LCD, the Canon G9 is the G-series reborn. Though it’s still lacking the swivel screen, I found the Canon G9’s big LCD useful enough that I didn’t miss it much. Though I’m one reviewer who will take the noise at ISO 1,600 and work with it later, I do wish ISO weren’t stranded out on that dial, retro-cool as it is.

Canon Powershot SD950 IS Digital ELPH Review - ImagingResource

Dec 09, 2007 | Category: Canon Powershot SD950 IS

Featuring a 12.1 megapixel CCD, 3.7x optical zoom lens, and well-designed user interface, the Powershot SD950 IS Digital ELPH has a compact body style that is well suited for travel. Exposure remains under automatic control, and its 11 pre-programmed Scene modes help with more tricky subjects.

The Canon SD950 IS is a very responsive camera, with low shutter lag in daylight conditions, and excellent shot-to-shot speeds. It also sports very good battery life, a capable Movie mode, and excellent download speed. Finally, Canon makes a line of accessories including a slave flash, and even an underwater case for it as well, expanding your options beyond what you’d normally expect from a compact digital camera. The bright 2.5-inch color LCD monitor is excellent for framing and reviewing shots, and the overall design and layout of the SD950 is user-friendly and hassle-free. Printed output is astonishingly good, producing impressive 16×20-inch prints, and even ISO 400 shots are good at 11×14.

If you’re looking for a good, take-anywhere camera with great versatility and good color and tonality, the Canon SD950 deserves a close look.
