I use the 9100 for shooting images for a local newspaper and also shooting fire and rescue stuff. The images are really really good.Shot at 9 mega-pixel fine and you can make 16x20 prints. One thing that hasn't been mentioned is that the 9110 has a great video mode that makes really good video files. So in my case their is no need to every carry a camcorder. And their is memo mode that lets me a add a short voice memo to any pictures which lets me easily ID locations, peoples names etc once I get home without carrying around notebokk.

Hi,
Me too I have a9600 from fuji. The noise level is quite high in low light conditions but for making macro it's wonderful. Because of the noise level I am planning to get a Nikon D40 or D40x they are quite cheap in Singapore.

I have a S9000. I doubt I'll ever switch to a dslr simply because I don't see myself getting serious enough about photography, or make enough money from photography, to dive into the dslr world. I'm an accessorizer, and I could easily see myself dumping $10,000 into dslr photography equiment. I wanted as much power as I could get in a simpler & cheaper superzoom form factor, so the S9xxx series will probably be the most advanced cameras I'll have. I can fully accessorize this camera with huge memory cards, the best recharger and batteries, the best telephoto and macro lens converters, a great flash and a very good tripod for about $1000, and that definitely makes a lot of fiscal sense to someone like me.

That said, I'm getting pretty excited about this camera. I haven't even had this camera a week, and I've already started reading the manual a second time. I've also started stocking up with accessories as well.

S9000 or S9100? The S9000 is rather old. Also the S9000 has several low light focusing issues that many people have spoke about on this forum. The S9100 which I own and use for work is much more stable choice. I have nhot seeen the need for additional lens convertors for the camera myself as the 28-300mm zoom is plenty. I use the sandisc ultra II emory card in it as well as a pqi 100x memory card and they are about as fast as the camera can handle.... I once tryed an exterme III card on loan and it didn't see any changes in speed. I would get 2900mha batteries if you haven't already bought batteries for your camera.

I have a Fuji S9100 and while I do not use it often only because I have a few dslr's, it does have a purpose...I love the live view with adjustable screen...

All in all, when I bought it, I felt like I bought the very best p&s there was...
I can only hope that Fuji continues in this tradition...I hope they come out with a better one in the same 9000 series of cameras..
