Spotted this while looking for something else, thought it was a very good deal??. I have the S5700 7mp camera and its ace, my father in law has this one and must say im jealous!!!.
Thought it might be of use to someone.

DESCRIPTION
The Fujifilm FinePix S1500 camera with a powerful 12x optical zoom is the ideal choice if you are looking for an efficient camera with both high quality performance and compactness. Thanks to its small size and light weight it is easily portable. It will fit perfectly in to your bag or will hang comfortably round your neck, all ready for an action-packed day out. The 4 x AA Alkaline batteries (included) will last for a fantastic 300 shots in the FinePix S1500 - enough to last you all day long without having to carry around spare batteries. You can also get up to 700 shot battery life with AA Lithium batteries (optional). The FinePix S1500 is compatible with SD & SDHC memory cards, available up to a massive 32GB. With a large, clear, high-resolution 2.7" LCD screen it is easy to compose & look back at the photos you've taken. Normally only found on digital SLRs, the Tracking Auto Focus function tracks the subject automatically for as long as the shutter is half-pressed and the subject is kept inside the frame. The FinePix S1500 also features anti-blur technology, face detection and red-eye removal, automatic scene detection, continuous shooting and high speed image playback, Panorama Shooting Mode, and Movie Mode allowing you to make your own 60 second movie clip with sound.

Its not too bad relly, for the one i got i just pciked up some energizer rechargables on ebay...works a treat!!
#7
Got some 2800's from amazon (7dayshop..) for £4. Not bad.

I prefer to run on AA's, ok they don't last as long typically but at least you aren't far from spares...
#8
Personally I'd go for a secondhand FZ3 in preference to this.

better quality photo's by far.

That makes it better, if your battreys run out you can jsut go into a shop and buy some, i only buy them when they take AA's and have 4 lots of battreys i take out when i take my camera out, and on a week on holiday i only had to replace them once

I googled FZ3 and the only one i can find is a Panasonic FZ3 which is a 6 or 7 year old 3.1mp camera? is that the right model number?
I have an S5700 and looking to upgrade, not sure if this is that much better than the one i have i've been hoping for a good deal on the Fuji S200EXR or Panasonic FZ38 (is that the one you meant?) to be posted.
Batteries last quite well in the S5700, and a set of decent rechargeable batteries can be picked up reasonably cheaply. Im sure they last just as well with this one.

Agree. At Least you can have 2 sets of 2800 Mha Batteries and swop them straight over when they go flat, if your out and about.

back in January it was much better offer and with £50 cashback from Fuji, that's why this offer cold for me, as I bought this camera under £97 (after discounts and cashback).

I understand what you are getting at, but what you have to remember is this deal doesn't apply to you as you already have one. These deals are aimed at people that want one now!!

Should we all vote cold because this camera will be cheaper in a years time...?! :?

No mistake.

The output from a 6-7 year old FZ3 would be superior to this and the features that have evolved over that time don't add to the overall end product.
You don't need the 10-12Mp unless you intend to blow up to lifesized and then the quality of this lens will let you down.
The 3Mp FZ3, with its amazing Lieca lens, will still be better than this albeit it lacks the larger screen, and you should be able to pick one up nowadays for half the price of this - If you can find someone willing to part with, that is.

I wouldn't consider the camera offeed here as an upgrade to your Fuji - More of a sideways, or even backward step.
It is a beginners camera.

If you want a REAL upgrade then go for the Panny FZ35 or upwards. They are the best non SLR on the market.

You must be doing something worng then. I have this camera (bought from Amazon in the US for approx £115) and I have never, ever had this happen to me.

I would highly recommend this camera to anyone as a bridge camera. There are a lot of manual controlsand a really good lens on this, but you can have everything set to auto and snap some excellent images, using it as a simple super-zoom camera.

I was blown away by the difference between images taken on my digital ixus and this; the S1500 images looked more "real" and "alive".
#23
Bought one from Wembley branch last week, great value for money and beats the shots taken by my Nikon digital compact hands down.
#24
got this and well impressed, you should not be disappointed!!!

Turn on high-speed shooting, turn off face detection. :thumbsup:

Or return it, might be faulty (it's never that long).
#26
Does it come with a case too?
#27
The Asda by mine (Hunts Cross, Liverpool) is doing a deal on a leather camera case for this, buy the camera and get a case for half price (£10 instead of £19.99). Also got SD cards, 4gb, for £7.97.
#28
i am new to cameras and only have a digitial camera but would love one of these as I am a freelance journalist. is this a good camera if it is your first one? i do not want to spend too much either as i will be learning on it.

Put a new set in your spellchecker then!


One of the disadvantages of AAs is that the cameras have to be much bulkier - really not an issue with something like this though.

That's a lot of camera for the money, albeit gets some mediocre feedback. However, if anyone is looking at this or similar as their only camera I'd suggest you reconsider. You're not going to slip something this size in your pocket 'just in case' and the best camera in the world doesn't take good pics when you leave it at home. I've got a superb Panasonic bridge camera but I have to say it doesn't get used much these days for that reason, whereas a real compact or even my TZ5 is small enough to take along for the ride.

I returned it in the end,the pictures were too soft ,i think it may of had a focusing fault as it seemed to hunt for a long time and the pics on a hd screen were naff,i tried all the setting and still no look,i bought it for my daughter to learn on as i have the fuji s5 pro and have always liked fuji,should of tried another really but i just got a refund and gave her my old d40..

Sorry I am dyslexic, but if you buy a camera like this you know its going to be a bit bulky thats why its a bridge camera, so size is not issue with this. and if i dont tqake it out the camera on my phone is good enough, as any little camera is camera really, as i only have 2 pockets in the summer, one for keys and wallet and one for phone and a normal camera would not go in as well

Thee are no lenses for the S1500, or filters for that matter. I knew this before buying, but a UV or ND filter would have been nice

You wont be dissapointed with the quality, i have the older S5700 7mp and it takes some brilliant pics. If i remember correctly set up digital zoom in settings which should help you a bit more with longer shots.

Agreed,
I have the S5700 which you can fit another lense onto. But when i set this camera up for my father in law i remember seeing that you cant use extra lenses on this model to which i was a little surprised at really.
Still takes some great pictures though.

Actually, I've just noticed that some Ebay sellers are doing a hood-type thing that allows you to use 72mm lenses and filters, but it looks a bit basic and I'm sure you'd get the effect of looking down a tunnel from using it!

See I told you there was lol if you had done your homework before buying you would have known ;)

72mm is a bit big, but i got a 52mm and you can get most filters that size, if you look at your S1500 lence you will notice a very fine thread around the lens, so do i get Rep for you being wrong and me enlightening you? lol

This is the one i got, which has no tunnel looking thing

I dont think you would get a tunnel effect on the one you are tlkaing about though due to the end that is near the lense side being 1/2 the diameter of the end away from the camera, if you know what i mean ;)
