Fuji S1000

Discussion in 'Fuji' started by Shenine Livingstone, Jan 10, 2005.

  1. Does anybody here have any experience with the Fuji S7000Z. Could you tell
    me if it is a good camera and if it is easy to use?

  3. It gives you the flexibility of putting it in "P" (Program) mode and just
    taking photos as well as manual control over the settings. My wife uses it
    just like a point&shoot. It's a nice camera.

    Have a look at the comparison section of the review of that camera on the
    www.dpreview.com website. There are better alternatives for the same money.

    Yes, yes and yes.
    People talk about noise from interpolation but I've not had that much of a
    problem - I do get purple and green fringing on high contrast subjects which
    looks horrible when zoomed to 1000% in photoshop but it's un-noticaeable
    when printing full frame at A3. The S7000 has a very aggressive auto-focus
    and the manual focus/zoom ring is virtually useless. The 4048 x 3040 pixel
    size makes cropping viable as you still have plenty of 'spare' pixels to
    print from. You'd have to spend much more money if you buy the Canon EOS
    which is a prosumer DSLR.

    All-in-all I'd say it's great value for money. I'd recommend buying a 512mb
    or 1gb Compact Flash card for the camera as the 12.3mpxl yields pictures
    around 4.5mb each. This won't be the last camera I ever buy but I've been
    very pleased with it so far.

    I bought one last May. I'm very pleased with it and can recommend you buy
    one. Do make sure about the batteries though - the earlier models of the
    S7000 used to run down a set of batteries in a day or so if used with a CF
    card. I recommend getting a 1gb or more CF card - don't bother with those
    tiny over-priced xD cards as an image at the interpolated 12mpxl will be
    around 4.5mb and 6mpxl RAW would be around 12.5mb.
