Nick do those towers lean like that ? Digital Zoom is quite impressive not too much loss there 9Mp really helps.

Hi Andy - have you progressed any further on your decision?

Hi Steve, Andy & All,

No, the structures are quite perpendicular to the ground.

We stopped by the Unisphere very late in the day and I shot off this test very quickly.

The structure is the old New York State Pavillion from the 1964 World's Fair.

I did not want to straighten it to avoid altering the original images.

I will reshoot this test in better light, with my 2 second timer, shot as Jpeg and then as Raw.

Will re-post when ready.

Regards, Nicholas

Cheers Nick

Are they the towers they used for the Men in Black film they look familiar?

Steve I have brought the D50 and sold the S9500 for what I paid for it so no real losses

One of my first pictures with the D50 is attached considering the lousy weather and slow shutter speed /wide apeture not a bad effort. Tail a bit out of focus because of the shallow depth of field and the sky is a bit poor but not much I could do about that.

Hi Andy, Nice shot! Think I'm beginning to head the same way on the D50 but maybe it would be polite to not discuss that on a Fuji Forum (the new VR 18-200 lens would make the D50the one-lens camera I was looking for in the 9500but budget could be a problem on that one!). Pity about the 9500 as it was perfect for my needs butthe more I read, the more I'm losing interest.

Nice shot Andy!!! Very seasonal too.

Steve - Haven't really had much opportunity to use my S9500 yet, but so far think it should do ok. Sorry to hear your losing interest in it. If I get a chance to take some pics I'll attempt to convince you otherwise. It's been a smooth transition from my S5500, they are very similar in lots of ways. Incidently, what's the latest from the Fudgie Denial Department?

Hi Syd,

Denial - at least, that's according to the correspondance I've had from their local office.

Haven't lost interest totally yet - Iam convinced that faulty units did hit the market particularly in the 53Q & 53A series of S/N's but I've also satisfied myself thatat least some of the reportsrelate to user error rather than a fault with the camera.

I just don't thinkthere should besuch a degreeof risk insomething as simple as a buying a camera and frankly, I don't believe I should have toperform quality control checksto ensure I got what I paid for.
