The purple fringing can be seen in the upper right of the pic, through the branches of the pine trees, and along the left edge of the pole, against the sky It can also be seen in the upper left center of the pic, adjacent to the crooked hardwood trunk, against the sky. Magnify the image a few times, and it becomes more apparent.

thanks for specific pointer; I do see a little fringing but nothing that would keep me from enlarging the photo for 8x10 or 11x14. This was shot on an overcast day. Of course it has been overcast since the moment I bought the camera but some day the sun will shine. <g> I will post some portraits with good lighting in an hour or so.

Your comments please.



Here a french site where you can choose two cameras and compare identical shots.

This link brings you to «face to face» between S9000 and Z30.

http://www.lesnumeriques.com/duels.p...2=60&ph=10



Take a look on the shot: outside sculpture with the zoom max. In french (extérieur sculpture au zoom max.

It shows the difference a good system of stabilization can make what in my opinion is the only lack on S9000

I agree about the need for Image Stabilization, especially with telephoto shots using the S9000.

There are some other factors which swung me to the 9000:

a. its extensible lcd so I can take waist and low-level shots

b. its 28mm equivalent wide angle

c. its much lower level of 'noise' due to its 5th generation chip



I really do wish it had IS and...

In reply to Gigu 27 regarding the french comparison at zoom max:- The difference in the captured detail could be accounted for by the difference in the zoom ranges. The Panasonic is 420mm and Fuji is 300mm. I have assumed here that the resultant image (stone face) presented is cropped more for the S9500 to arrive at the same size (not confirmed). I know from personal experience that it is essential to only compare images that have the same field of view and I am not at all clear from this review that this applies here. You must only compare Apples with Apples so to speak!

The frenchonly want to let you see the diiference of the zoom capability

Again I see a lot of softness in the s9500 pic (stoneface)

even compared to the dx6490 on that site wich I use and am looking to replace the s9500 lacks contrast and crispness; the lens just those not seem to have the quality of a leica or scneider kreuznach especialy in clear daylight.

it seems the infalling daylight on the lens creates the softness, maybe a lenscap could resolve that ( just guessing )

I think the p880(24mmwide vs 28 does make a difference) maybe with a teleconverter might be a good competetor with a retail price here in holland for 538 euros

I have seen some samples and they look very good and if the p880 feels as solid as my dx6490 does it might be the "one"for me

Z30 is just to noisy

r1 to expensive

samsung to unknown till now

But if the softness and lack of crispness can be resolved by settings the s9500 is clearly n1 choise

I am not convinced that the S9000/9500 is the best choice but in bright sunlight see these pictures:

http://public.fotki.com/npro/9000/dscf0078.html

and then click on Get Original Uploaded Photo

as well as

http://public.fotki.com/npro/9000/dscf0089.html

and also get the Original and see the crispness, and also this closer shot

http://public.fotki.com/npro/9000/dscf0091.html

the key IMHO is that you need decent lighting and a firm grip or tripod to get super crisp pictures. There is a setting for low light/movement of camera that looks like picture being jiggled (moved) and this increases the ISO to about 800 or 1600 so the shutter is faster - no other camera in this class can go to such a high ISO - I would like to have image stabilization ALSO but then again we cannot have everything. <g>

New competitors should come soon from the 2 other big boys with Canon, Nikon replacing their Pro 1 and 8400, 8800 soon...

Has anybody heard about when these replacements should come?

Canon might come with higher ISO.
Nikon might come with better zoom range.
