“A Fuji FinePix S6500 is a good little basic digital...”

Written on: 25/12/2007

A Fuji FinePix S6500 is a good little basic digital camera for general use but with some crucial limitations. Firstly, no PC socket or hotshoe to use an external flash. The inbuilt flash cannot be bounced and can be harsh. Don't know if its possible to fire a slave flash either. Viewfinder is a crude digital image and is not comparable to a traditional SLR's quality. Manual operated zoom is an improvement over the motorised earlier versions and is useful for "cine film" mode. Beware… Read Full Review

I have owned SLR film cameras in the past and was tossing up between an SLR digital and the… Read Full Review

Try using the the little dial next to the viewfinder to focus it. Should be better then. It's weird that your lens quality is bad as I have no problems with mine. Perhaps yours is defective?

This review obviously comes from an unskilled person and is totally unhelpful, or fjsull bought a defective camera... S6500 is on top of its class!
