Written on: 21/07/2009 by DENO (1 review written)

the fuji finepix s9600 is a very versatile all rounder, and very good value for money.
Lens quality and range ideal; manual control of zoom range excellent.Well made
Minor gripe ,Battery power indicator only shows when almost exhausted.Optical stabilization would have been useful especially at the telephoto end.

This Fuji FinePix S9600 is a good camera for general use and I use mine for both stills of my products for sale and also for archery coaching video analysis.

Not a complicated camera but very capable and versatile… Read Full Review

“Used my Fujifilm S9600 for about two years. Love it....”

Written on: 13/04/2009

Used my Fujifilm S9600 for about two years. Love it. The independent flash socket. Knowing my Portaflash studio flash flashes at 1000th sec, I set the camera manually to shutter speed 1000 and experimented with aperture (most apertures successful). Instant "studio" results!

Attainable price.

I love the speed of quarter turn of barrel from 28 - 300 mm.

Chose it because being of slight build I got tired of the weight of carrying several lenses… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/04/2009 by jacquiewilkes (1 review written)

Owned my Fujifilm S9600 for about two years. Love it. Like the independent flash socket - use it with my Portaflash studio set-up. Knowing the speed of the Portaflash was 1000th sec, I just manually set the camera shutter to 1000 and experimented with the aperture. Instant success!

Like the speed of quarter turn of the barrel to go from 28 to 300 mm.

Being slightly-built I like the portability compared with carrying several lenses.

Like having a manual-focus option, although I have to admit I… Read Full Review

I think this camera is an amazing price for 10.7 megapixels. This camera is extremely good value for money. Also it is smaller than most digital SLR cameras. I do not see any flaws, therefore I well recommend Fuji FinePix S9600… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/10/2008

A good camera for a novice that wants a decent bit of kit but also a very serious camera that is cheap, it does well in nearly all situations and has so many easy to use programmes and because of the manual zoom the switch on and ready time is very fast.
I HAVE HAD NIKONS ETC, ETC BUT I LOVE THIS CAMERA… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/08/2008 by rebelwriteruk (1 review written)

The Fuji FinePix S9600 looks like an DSLR, feels and handles like a DSLR but stops just a little way short. Due to it's smaller 9MP sensor it struggles with noise as the ISO is increased above 200, although in most circumstances ISO 400 is more than acceptable. Focus is fast and fairly accurate, struggles a little in low light but a very good manual focus system which I've found to be quick and easy to use overcomes the low light focusing issues. The manual zoom is a breeze to use and uses no… Read Full Review

The Fuji FinePix S9600 is a cracking camera, very good price for a bridge camera. Hard wearing camera for more than your average photo's. Great zoom, good quality shots at full image quality settings, good ISO settings, can use off camera flash with flash gun… Read Full Review

Have used many different Cameras both film and digital. The Fuji Finepix S9600 almost has everything one needs in a camera in its Price range. Stops short of being a SLR. Could have wider lens as accessory, at least. Should have had accessory WIDE ANGLE LENS upto 14mm… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/12/2007 by MikeyB123 (16 reviews written)

I won this camera in a raffle. It is an excellent camera and as I am a digi-phobic I was suprised how quickly I was converted. There are lots of features which should keep the gadget lover busy for sometime, it is worth getting to understand things such as white balance as it improves your photos. Get a good set of NiMh batteries (2700mAH). As the price comes down so does the value for money… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/08/2007 by digiphil (1 review written)

I was very disappointed with the lack of modes which the S6500 contains, this was the whole point of my buying the Fuji Finepix S9600. I assumed all the features of the S6500 would have been incorporated in the new S9600 along with the better sensor and higher pixels. I lost two good photos because they required some flash enhancement, by the time I raised the flash the pictures were gone. I am now about to trade in the S9900 for an S6500 as I'm now getting past the stage of setting up the… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/06/2007 by Teddybearjacko (5 reviews written)

This S9600 was my first proper digital camera, I still own it but I moved up to better cameras, but only because I needed the extra zoom and closer macro, this camera did everything right and even a couple things better than my 4x more expensive new one, the noise is well under control, focus is very good (not manual) image quality and resolution was great, but it seems like it would choose low shutter speeds in daylight and make things too bright when left to think for itself, easily fixed… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/05/2007 by davlov (12 reviews written)

I bought Fuji Finepix S9600 in October 2006. Had been toying with upgrading to a D-SLR but couldn't justify spending that sort of money.

It can't do everything a D-SLR can, but it comes very close.

The picture quality is very good. I've had a few hiccups, but on the whole this is one great camera. Any bad pictures have been down to me, not reading the instruction book properly. I have found the articulated LCD screen very useful in awkward places.

For the person who wants to bridge the gap… Read Full Review
