I need to know a few things about the Fuji S6000 which will probably be released Sept. 2006. However, I need to know ASAP about some specifics. This is for a business, and as yet, there are no reviews or adequate details on the Fuji site to answer my question. Here are my questions, and if anyone has the certain answers, I would be most appreciative:

1) Will it have audio with the still that is automatically activated on RECORD mode immediately after taking a photo?

2) Will it have an AEL button, AEL feature or just exposure compensation?

3) Will it have an instant, auto review of the image (for a few seconds)?

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!

According to the specs on the Fuji website, the camera has monoraul sound in movie mode. The shutter lag time is quoted with the AE/AF locked, so that would seem to indicate that the lock feature is available. What is unique about this model that you would think it would not have instant review? Every other camera that I have seen has that feature. Is there some reason you think it might not be available on this model? Other than these answers, I suppose you will have to wait until more information is published.

2) AEL button - no
AEL feature - separately from AF? - no, just AE/AF lock
exposure compensation - yes, in P/A/S modes

3) an instant, auto review of the image

Yes, you have four options:
- continuously until you press Menu/Ok button
- 3 sec
- 1.5 sec
- zoom (enlarge)

Thanks, Asam,

Edited Update: After having the Japanese owners manual translated, it's confirmed that the voice recording on the S6000 is only available in Playback mode. This will also likely be the case with the S9100.

Everything else is looking GREAT with the S-series by Fuji. There are fewer of the prosumer cameras being made now, but this series is definately a looker. Now we need some reviews once they're released!

Cheers folks!
