Hello All,

Check the Editor's comment on the lower right of the page.

I'm buying one as soon as it is available:

Regards, Nicholas



(P.S. This site (as well as Steves) merits being placed on your Favorites List).

Though interesting, the article offers little new information. Mostly, it seems like a repetition of the official fuji promotion material. They mention having had the camera for several days - I couldn't find any sample images...?

I believe the Editor's comments on the side of the article ( in orange ink ) represent very, very good news about the S9000 / S9500.

Regards, Nicholas

If you look at the sample images on the Fuji site they look very soft,I wonder if this is intentional.

I don't know how the photo's were recorded, but I read that most digital camera's sharpen a picture before storing it as a JPG file. RAW files though are untouched and need a bit of sharpening after they are transferred to a PC! (not my words, dunno if its true)

Hello All,

The value of the editor's comments for me is that he is talking about how the S9000 images look as prints, not on a screen.

My end product is a print.

For me his comments indicate the camera will deliver as Fuji promises.

Regards, Nicholas

Thanks Nicholas,

I find the LetsGoDigital site usually gives a review which concentrates on the handling and print quality rather than the Pixel Peeping some sites do. I find that it is usually not quite as involved as Steve's reviews but still gives a very extensive view of the product. I look forward to seeing Steve's test of this camera, which, unfortunately may still take quite some time.

Nicholas-

Thanks for beginning this thread. I believe a good number of people, myself included, are very interested in the Fuji S-9000 introduction and the initial reviews. Nice job.

I don't know if anyone else sees it this way but, my excitement over this model is based on the fact that it offers the handling advantages of a camera like the Sony F-828, while offering usable high ISO performance. I think this is a viable alternative to a DSLR for many of us. I await further reviews.

I am getting all excited the more I read about this camera. Quality of Fuji always justifies what you pay for it. I was really all out for the Panasonics FZ series till I came across this camera. A lot more cheaper and a lot more going for the price. Its out here in thailand selling in some retail stores. Have to find some time to go check it out.
