Why don't we select some everyday object and post indoor flash shots of it in this thread to do immediate comparisons?
It is a good Idea. Some objects with a lot of colour and details. I think of colouring pencils, or like that:

In the kitchen there is a lot of object with colour and detail to test focus/color of image.

i just bought a 9500 here in Thailand two weeks ago... and it is noticeably less sharp than my 7000....

I have been very pleased with my 7000 over the last two years, and use it in my small digital studio here in Thailand.. i thought the 9500 would be great... I used to have a Canon EOS with the Tamron 28-200mm lens which was great too..

I know the 9500 will be great if this sharpness issue is 'resolved':roll:

my 4 digicams have all been Fuji....

Don't know what kind of return policy I can get here in Thailand....going back to the city in another weeks time....:?

Hi,

I have had my S9500 since 12/09/05. I have never really done any comparison with my S7000. The serial number of my S9500 is:53L00038. Can anyone tell me if this serial number is one of the affected cameras. Thanks.

I had an s7000 before getting a s9500. In my opinion and with the results I'm getting, there is no comparison between the two. The s9500 is far superior in every way, especially image quality, but it does take some learning.

Yes the s9500 is less sharp out of the camera than a s7000, it is also much less noisy. If you use 6mp on the s7000 the difference looks even worse, but you can make the s9500 output about the same by setting Sharpness to hard, Saturation to standard and Contrast to hard in camera. However this is not the key to it, in fact I have found that the images produced by doing this are less easy to process and are over sharp when printed. Even worse when using Qimage to print.

The best way is to set everything to standard and process in Photoshop, Paintshop pro or your favorite graphic program. The s9500 can take plenty of sharpening without producing halos and the amount of detail you can bring out is amazing. The worse thing you can do is look at the files 100% on a monitor. Resize to your screen resolution then view at 100%.

Hi,

I have just telephoned Fuji UK, and they have informed me that there have been no recalls of the S9500, and that they know of no known faults with the S9500. Also told that as I had the camera registered with Fuji, that they would have informed me of any problems first.

Hi Andy

All of us that bought the S9500 early are itching to find out if we have a similar camera. Sadly, it looks like we are going to get nowhere using serial numbers so we will have to go by image quality. You say your issues were with focussing / resolution and colour. Can you explain some more? Were the problems always present or only under certain conditions?

Hi,

I have not noticed any problems with my 9500, I have done a comparison test with my S7000. I would say that the S9500 has better image quality than the S7000. I compaired the same shot in our garden, and the S9500 was much sharper.
