This good review must have been a long time ago. Digital cameras have come a long way since.

Sorry, I don't know what's going on with HUKD's links these days, direct link added to post and here:

There were several good reviews that I've seen and all from last year. Yes, this model was released over a year ago now, but it still compares very well with the latest models and please show me one with a better spec for the same sort of money....

Thanks mods, link appears to be fixed and working fine now.

I know it is £30 more but it might be better to get the S1600 which superseded the S1500 earlier this year. Available for £120.43 form Amazon or for a little less form Amazon Marketplace

Mmm - a reviewer of the 1500 argues that the later models' build quality is questionable in comparison with the 1500 and as a sub-£100 "bridge" camera it's a very good deal. Heat from me!

I have this very camera and OMG, I was in serious doubt about the pictures before i bought it but Have to say it does take pretty amazing pictures and 12x optical zoom and stabilization works very well, Panoramic feature is excellent, I brought it last year £189 so makes it £89.99 and amazing price heat added
#12
same price as refurb from fuji so got to be hot! though personally I would go canon sx210 14x and 14.1mega... smaller form factor too. £160 at the minute including cashback from canon.

Awesome price shame its out of stock, I bought the S2500HD last month, was debating which one to get, S1500/S1600/S1800/S1900 finally settled for the S2500HD.

Lot of features for very little money these fuji cameras, only problem is the zoom when recording movies, not a problem for us since we have a video camera for doing that.

I bought one these beauts last year and am thoroughly pleased with it.
You have more control and features than a compact but is less expensive than a real DSLR.
I think it's great for someone that wants to dabble in photography at an amateur level.
#19
I have this camera, the zoom is great for getting close up pics (with a steady hand) but the autofocus can be bit hit and miss, and video quality is pretty terrible. Spends its time constantly trying to focus.

TBH I'd recommend skipping this and going for an entry model DSLR

Nooo! Finger twitched and now the deal is expired. I didn't mean to do that!!! Why is it so easy to expire and apparently impossible to un-expire?!?!

Hi Thirdorder, no problem, took a while, but has now just been unexpired. I agree with you, it seems much easier to expire a deal than to unexpire it. Just for your future reference, the best way to unexpire a deal is to click on the 'report/spam' buton next to the 'expire one', click on 'other' and then type a message asking for it to be unexpired. Goes through to a mod - takes a little while, but its the best way to 'unexpire'.
#22
Not voted. I'm not a fan of these Sainsburys deals. One or two items left in the odd store here and there.
#23
decent price, but i went for the half price wb600 deal from argos. at £129.99, it was a little more money, but has a better zoom, HD video, and full manual control... Check it out.
#24
Now out of stock - but the S1800 (complete with 18X Optical Zoom) is only a few quid more at Amazon - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00342UTPM- currently just £123.64.

S1500 refurb is https://secure.fujifilm.co.uk/shop/consumer/digital/digital-cameras/d-slr-long-zoom/finepix-s1500

the HS10 is the same price at Amazon as a refurb is at Fuji, very tempted to buy myself a HS10 from Amazon. Too late to cancel my Sainsbury orders but I guess I could always sell one of them an make a fiver and buy the HS10... decisions decisions.

I have one of these, I paid about 81 quid for it, some LONG time ago, when they were being cleared out, so the price isn't very attractive now!

I like it, but it is so old now, the models that replaced it have been long ago replaced with newer and more sophisticated ones!

Come on, Nihcaj, you make it sound like we're talking about some ancient Bronze Age artifact...

The S1500 was first released in early 2009, that's around 18 months ago. yes it's been superseded by newer models, but that doesn't automatically make this camera bad. It won't have GPS tagging or anything like that, but it takes decent pictures and is a 12x super-zoom for £89.99 and i am not aware of anything else available at the moment that directly compares for the same price or less.

Sure, if you want to spend more you can get something better, but that applies to virtually everything in life....

Just with cameras, (and most electronics), old is old pretty quick.

It is good, but a bit more buys something you are likely to be happier with for longer too as features really do move on at an alarming rate now.
