G'day Bryan

Firstly - Welcome to Stave's photo forum - there's lots of people here with lots of knowledge for you to benefit from

As a fuji user for many years - I am confused as to why you would be looking at such 'old' cameras. While they were both good 'in-their-day' cameras, the camera world has moved on considerably since then. Also - while the 9600 may have a 2nd-hand price of 80/100 quid, the 5600 should be around at 40/50quid, and no more

Current [2012 release] Fuji cameras [the 4200, 4500, 4800 say] are selling in your price range, so I really wouldn't bother with the 5-yr + older cameras

Hope this helps a bit
Regards, Phil

fuji s8200 ~ new March 2013 model ~ 'super zoom' ~ 24 to 700mm with IS

has an 'advanced SP' mode which actually makes it into a useable point and shoot for the amateure

works surprisingly well overall

she is a 'click, i'm done' type of shooter

my wife's s7000 died and was replaced for $300 + shipping

the next step would be the sx-1 for $700

G'day John

do you mean "sx-1" or "X-s1"??

If it's the X-s1 you may like to read my user review
