im looking for a camera in those two above price range, and i cant decide what to go for..

right now im thinking about one of those two, leaning towards the finepix since the fz30 got a rly bad noise according to some reviews that i read, so what do you think?

or maybe another camera on that category and price range?..



thanks alot!

Hi,

So what's the bloody conclusion?

Sharp but noisy(FZ30) vs. More detailed by softy(S9000/9500)?

:P

cybrosh-

Initially, I felt that way as well about the Fuji S-9000/S-9500. However, my impression was quite changed when I saw the photos that cloud surfer posted in the fujifilm folder. Those photos were both amazing and mind changing for me. It might be worth a look.

I would just point out that Speaklightly's point applies equally to the FZ-30. There are many people who find the noise either quite acceptable or just plain less obvious than the reviewers have said. (By the way, the only full review of the s9000 I've seen was appalled by the noise on it, too -- and came to the conclusion that anything above ISO 400 was unusable except in down-res'ed form) Between the two cameras, you should end up with a pretty good idea of the state of the art for small-chip high-density imaging. You may end up deciding that a lower pixel count is the right choice in the small-imaging-chip cameras.

Nafta-

As I said before, nobody appreciates you jumping on everyone else's thread. Please stop this kind of posting. Perhaps it is just my own personal failing, but I prefer to remain on topic. Thanks.
