OK, thanks...and I finally found another site (Fuji UK) which says it does have aperture and shutter priority:

I had the same question regarding A/S priority so I emailed Fuji and they confirmed that the camera does have it.

In (dpreview) it states S6500fd has Macro at 10cm, but the Fuji Site ( http://www.fujifilm.com/products/dig...0fd/index.html ) says it has Super Macro down to 1cm

It's amazing how much misinfo there can be out there. While searching for more information yesterday, I found one site, apparently responding to the F20 and S6000 press releases, lamenting the fact that Fuji couldn't produce a camera with both the wide zoom of the S6000, and the low light capabilities of the F20 (which of course the S6000 does actually equal). Another listed amongst the advantages of the higher end S9000 compared to the S6000 the ability to shoot in RAW (which again the S6000 also has).

kenbalbari, that is the reason why it's better to stick with trusted websites like Steve's and Phil's.

I have just read that the shutter lag on the S6500fd is 0.035 of a sec,and that its comparable or better then some DSLR's is this true.As the lag on some digis is so bad.

Yes; but that would be the "half to full press" lag, after the camera has already decided focusing, metering, and exposure by the half press. So if you use the half press, it's almost instant when you release the shutter. For the S9000, dpreview measured it at .07 seconds. Full press lag is around half a second. Those times aren't very different from competing ultra zooms from Sony and Canon. I'm not sure if the S6000 will be any quicker.

Some point and shoots are faster. The Casio Exilim X-850 for example, has a shutter lag of about .03, and a full press lag of about .2 seconds in dpreview's test.
