Has anyone seen any "legitimate" reviews yet of the FinePix S9000? All I've seen so far are previews.

Any assistance would be appreciated as I am going to buy either the Fuji or the Panasonic Z30 this week.

Hello Jonlouch & All,

I just read this first hand report by a new S9500 owner.

It provides some useful feedback about this new camera:

When will the S9000 be released in the U.S.????????

Regards, Nicholas

Hi jonlouch:-)

I had the same choice and I've ordered the Fuji, mainy because of the low noise, I have a 2mp Panasonic FZ1 and have to say it beats my previous 5mp Minolta 7Hi hands down, the quality of the images from a 2mp camera are unbelievable, have a look in the Panasonic forum further down for more info.

My choices were, Panasonic FZ5, 5mp, excellent image quality and the same 12x optical zoom Leica lens as I have nowbut no low light gain-up of the lcd which I could do with as being almost housebound I take a lot of indoor shots :lol:, Panasonic 8mp FZ30, lcd problem fixed but sample shotshave quite a bit of noise at ISO200 and above. Fuji S9500, shorter zoom range than the Panasonics but low noise &manual zoom.

There now is a review at cnet.com. It gives the camera a 7 out of 10.

85% from amateur photographer mag in the UK. Would have been more but for slot playback and slowercontinuous f.p.s.

Commented on the good noise performance!

Look at the item 'And another review', down thelist, started by Dykx.

I got the there mentioned s9500 test report form Amateur Photographer by mail, six pages, and it's a nice review.

Hi-there is a very good one at www.neocamera.com at least he is sensible,he does some comparisons "for fun" with Canon 20d and there is not a lot of difference anyway have a look,its worth a read.--cheers,Don-----enclosed post-box taken with Fuji S9500

I have received 2 Fuji S900 on seperate shipments in December and both cameras are taking very poor quality shots. We are an Apple Dealer in San Antonio.* We have returned both cameras but I cannot find anyone who has had a similar problem. We received Z1's and they take great pictures. The S9000 is blurry and grainy, even on a tripod, flash or no flash.I am hoping that this is just a bad batch. Surely people would not accept this as being an acceptable 9 Megapixal camera.*Neither Fuji or distribution seem to know of any problems which makes me wonder if this is just the way the S9000 takes pictures.
