The FujiFilm FinePix S9600 is FujiFilms newest flagship prosumer camera.
The Best Feature of this camera has to be the lense
with a 10.7X Magnification it goes from 28MM-300MM in Standard SLR / DSLR terms.
Considering most digital SLRS come with an 18-55mm or a 28-80mm lense as standard and you have to pay another few hundred for a 70-300MM lense this prosumer seems to deliver great value for money.
Sure you cant change the lense which is a pity but at least you dont have to worry about dust and dirt getting into the lense and the overall package is a lot lighter to carry around plus 28-300mm should cover most of your camera needs.
Also the screen can be flipped up and down so you can shoot from the waist or holding the camera above your head.
The autofocus is a little slow at longer zoom range and the antishake is also weak at longer range but you have a manual focus ring built in and a tripod takes care of shake at long zoom ranges.
All in all this is a really nice package for someone not willing to spend a fortune on a DSLR kit but would like something approaching DSLR performance.
Its a really nice solid compact package that costs about half as much as a similar specked DSLR with Lenses.
It can also take movies which you cant do with a DSLR.
I took these photos in Amsterdam it and they came out fairly well.
I have some shots of London as well that I will post soon.
In short if you dont want to spend a lot on a DSLR and your ok with shooting at a Semi-Professional level then this is a good camera for you.
