Welcome to the club...... sorry to hear you have been struck by thisbad case of engineering.

Please let us know how Fuji handles this issue. By most reports it is a fairly quick turn around.

Steve,

Just got the camera (S9000) at the end of May 2006 and now I also am having a problem with the command dial.It clicks like it's working,but does absolutely nothing.It worked when I first got it.I take very good care of my camera equiptment because I can't buy too many toys at my age.Being retired makes me take good care of everything I buy.I will contact Fuji.I do imagine it's still underwarranty.Ray

Switch to the 9600, there they changed the command dial wheel ... probably the shaft too

Anyways, my opinion is that sooner or later most of the 9500/9000's are going to have the same trouble as it's not limited to one batch of serie # ... it's spread over all.

Perhaps you better make sure you don't buy any other brand either, all manufacturers have defects that pop up from time to time, that's why they offer a warranty. If a manufacturer takes care of the problem for defective units, then yes it is a hassle, but not a major issue. Read the forums for any major brand of camera (or most any other product)and you will find threads about defects/problems, that's just part of life.

I got my s9500 back a few weeks ago, (just in time for my holiday). Turn around was about a week from Fuji (pretty swift), click wheel feels stiffer than before the fault (same as reported by others on* forums).Ta.

Harry,

How about this.A friend of mine has the S9000 and the dial isn't broken as yet but he got worried and called Fuji for an extended waranty and Fuji told him sorry,we don't have one.Fuji is in deep doo doo I think. teleman

The 9600 is actually a S9000 with new fixes.They should exchange all the S9000 with 9600 I think.(Yeah right) Ray
