Photoxels have reviewed the new SLR style Fujifilm FinePix S9600 / S9100. The new Fujifilm FinePix S9600 (S9100 in the US) – is an update to the S9500 (S9000) – and features a 9 megapixel sensor, a wide angle 10.7x optical zoom lens, ISO upto 1600, VGA video recording, and a 2″ swivelling screen. The camera is available for £255 from Amazon including VAT and free postage.
“With 10.7x optical zoom and 9MP resolution, the Fujifilm S9100 provides very good image quality (though not approaching the exceptional low noise capability of the FinePix F30). Noise is low at ISO 80, 100, 200 and 400. ISO 800 is usable, and a high ISO 1600 allows you to get the shot where otherwise you may not be able to depending on the amount of light present. Currently no other long zoom prosumer digital camera can match this low noise high ISO capability.”
