The Fuji FinePix S1000fd is a good sturdy camera, an ideal next step up for the advancing amateur, this camera would take you all the way up until entry level DSLR if that is what you are aiming to do with your photography skills.
If you are not looking to improve on your ability then this camera will see you through many years of general use; family pictures, birthdays, holidays etc.
It has 10 megapixels which produces excellent quality pictures, it’s very easy to use and is great to shoot in natural light. Physically it feels very good to hold and is the perfect shape and size for comfort.
The S1000fd has a 12X optical zoom that is equivalent to a 30-390mm focal range, which covers a large variety of photography aspects. The macro mode is an impressive feature with two modes (standard and super macro).
This camera also has some more striking and exciting features up its sleeve. The newly introduced ‘panoramic’ feature will take 3 shots and will merge them to create your panoramic photo. Ideal for capturing big groups of people or landscapes.
Then you have the usual features like face detection (fd), video capture, red-eye reduction, picture stabilisation anti-blur, pre-set scene modes and high speed shooting. I like the option to store pre-set scene modes onto the command dial for quicker access – a very nice touch.
Will take SD and XD memory card, and will also take the more common SDHC (high capacity) meaning you will probably never need to buy another card again.
The Good Points:-
Full Auto & Manual Control
2 Macro Modes
Very Long Zoom
The Bad Points:-
Unable to zoom when capturing video
Uses AA Batteries, you need to invest in some good quality rechargeable batteries.
To summarise; an affordable long zoom camera with face detection, panoramic function and an amazing macro function. I’m very impressed with this camera, its amazing what they can fit into such a small, stylish, light weighted camera.
