Hello All,

For me, that is for myself only, my photo shoot of yesterday convinces me that my new S9000 is a DSLR Killer as well as an R-1 Killer.

The shoot was shot in RAW, Fuji Converted to 50 MB Tiff, processed in PS CS,
reduced to 1000 pixel JPEG, saved as level 9.

Many of these shots would not be possible (for me) without the S9000.

After seeing them on screen and in print, I can confidently report I was never able to obtain the color, tone, and crispness of these photos with my D30, D60, nor my F-828.

I no longer have to keep reading about the latest cameras coming out. The S9000 can fill my needs handily.

This report expresses only my opinion and how the camera relates to myself. I share it with you as I think you may find this report interesting.

Photos from yesterday's shoot:

Depends on who's behind the S9000.

The cell phone companies have already created a new class of soon to be top gun photographers that we don't even know yet.

All they have to do is just put the Allen screw in the shutter release socket of the S9000 to increase its sensitivity, at the same time serve as a guide for the finger to move back to the shutter with accuracy. Remember those kids sending text messages to their friends touch type? Their touch type instinctwill rapid fire and set the camera at the same time without leaving the viewfinder, they are the ones who will manipulate the camera, control the camera, especially with the S9000 wide range of options offered to them. They are young, they can hold the camera steady, and they are quick, in real life shooting they will be tough to beat with any camera has similar versatility like the S9000.

Just one little screw can turn the S9000 into a monster.

Cold Shot,

Your enjoyable sarcasim indicates you forgot the old saying:

" It's the violinist, not the violin".

Making a camera a "Monster" does not enable the camera to make a "Photographer".

Thanks for your response.

Regards, Nicholas

I would put the screw on my camera, don't know what's out there on the field, just in case S9000 vs S9000.:-)

Fuji is getting very aggressive in this digital business, they position themselve in every digital camera sector from point and shoot up, here is another target they are aiming at:

Hi Nick,

Love the maroon mercedes! .. can i request a couple of pictures?? ..

thanks for the pictures, they certainly look like awesome quality. S9000 is no doubt a great great camera. Still wondering if I just go for the 5200 or invest in the 9000.

Hi Arvind and All,

Confuzed, the red car is a 1994 Honda Accord.

Plain & Simple is a 1992 Honda Accord Wagon.

It was alot of fun shooting them.

This was an unscheduled shoot.

We 'bumped into' them while wallking in the park.

Regards, Nicholas

arvind-

I just received my Fuji S-5200 and am impressed. I did not want to make the investment in the S-9000. So if you have any particular questions, perhaps I can be of help.

I concur that the S5600 (model in my part of the world) is utterly awesome in value. I doubt if it will sell (in my part of the world) as it is very plastic looking with no real outwardly appealing feature. I have had the S9500 for over a month and the manual zoom is just great, amongst many other great features. But I would not deter anyone from the S5600 purely for the performance vs price.

My conclusion is you will get great value from either camera. There is enough value distinction from both.

Best Regards, Allen
