Review of the S6000fd/S6500fd (same camera, different country)

Saw this for £149.99 in my local high street today in 2 shops, Jessops and Currys digital.

I did consider buying it but found out it is NOT a true SLR camera.

Review here of the S6000fd (on a US site) which I assume is a similar camera.

Great little camera and good price too - Not an DSLR (has a fixed lens and lcd viewfinder) but lots of settings to play with a good zoom function too. The "fd" has a patented (iirc) face detection system that helps make sure that pictures of people are exposed correctly.

A fine camera which DPReview think is good and they are VERY hard to please; http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/fujifilms6000fd/

As there is no stablisation I could budget for a tripod if anyone is planning on using the long end of the zome a lot.

However, its a LOT of camera for the price, especially if you can get the deal at Jessops!

You'll never get a DSLR for £150. A lens alone is worth ~£75. As it is, it's a very good price for a mid-range 'prosumer' camera.

Nice post. I've been after a camera with a 'proper' zoom lens at a reasonable price for as long as I can remember. I caught one of my friends (whos a member of Ukexpert) on MSN early this morning and all he tried to do was convince me to buy a 9500/9600 through ebay, just because thats what he has lol. He did say that the Fuji S series are one of those love one day, want to smash into tiny bits with a hammer the next type things:lol:

Anyway. One thing to bear in mind. This camera DOES NOT come with an XD card! So... Go to Dixons site and search for S6500FD and select the package deal instead (£169 with a bag and 512mb card). Funny how much more expensive the package is on bothe PC-World and Currys websites:whistling:

ALSO. Brucey bonus. If you have an EGG card, go through the Egg main site rewards program for a 5% cashback dropping the Dixons price to about £161 for the lot :-D

Edit...

Then go to Ebuyer and buy 2 extra 2GB XD cards and pay with google checkout just for the hell of it pmsl.

I think Tesco also have the 512's at that price, maybe instore but oos online. Oh and I just tested the voucher code and it's expired, which is a shame:-(
#10
Lol @ the currys price £244.89.

Ebuyer have the 2GB cards at 22.91 inc vat here : http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/118894

So 2 with 3 day delivery and GC 10off30 comes to £39.03inc. Don't know if thats the cheapest price for a pair of 2GB cards but cant be far off ;-)

Thanks Indigoj, Edi and Shengis.

I need a new camera like I need a hole in the head ! :-) Still an order for store pickup has gone in to Jessups (I hope that for store pick up that they will honour the reduced price!) and for 2 XD cards at ebuyer.

I do not really need another camera bag (however much I tried to twist my arm) and the 521Mb XD card lost its appeal after I read in Steve's Digicam's site that I could only get about 30 mins of video with a 2Gb card!

I didn't really want the card per se, but I wanted it to work 'out of the box' and it the bag was cheap enough ;-) 8 seconds of video on the internal memory, I read that review as well:lol:

If you pick yours up before mine arrives, maybe you could tell us how difficult it is to use? I'm only buying one because my old basic camera is pretty limited for night shots. It can be fooled slightly by changing the EV but the pics are still not perfect. Example here : http://www.shengis.net/shengis/images/car.jpg

Picked up from Jessops yesterday for £399.99 and fiddled about with it - first impressions - heavier than I thought it would be, with a plasticky look and feel. I did not much like the grip - it felt rough and did not sit comfortably in my hand like my Powershot or EOS500. It just sucked the life out of the 7Dayshop rechargeable batteries I first put in - I've got Uniross 2700mAh in now - that'll teach it!

However, it is still some camera for the price! I liked the various well placed buttons which make easy & uncomplicated access to various features (of which there's loads - most of them very useful!). At full zoom, a tripod would be a must!

I haven't really taken any pictures with it yet - am waiting for Ebuyer to wait for their 5 working days before they start processing my orders for the XD cards (still haven't heard from Google inspite of splitting my orders!). Shengis, I feel that you might be a little demanding of your camera! At night, with the car lights shining at the camera and the only other source of light from a street lamp at the side of the car, any camera would struggle! ;-)

The online offer is now out of stock, but is still listed for personal collection from store (if you can find a store with stock).

Still waiting for Dixons to get their arse into gear and send mine out, they were quick enough to charge my CC:roll: Much as it pains me to admit, ebuyer on the other hand have already informed me the XD cards are on-route so it seems buying the 512mb XD from dixons was a bit of a waste. Oh well, the wife can have it for her A405:p

Was on the phone to Dixons on saturday, 29mins and 45seconds on hold before I got to speak to anybody. My order STILL shows as processing, no third email and DHL just dropped the camera off. Breweries and p ups anybody?

Anyway, had a play about and its a LOT lighter than I expected it to be. But then i'm a big ol chav anyway:whistling: So now i'm going to have a play. Before I do though, even though the 'main' £149 is finished everywhere and DSG are now selling the camera on its own at £179 if you follow the link below you can STILL get the Camera/512MB XD Card and Bag for £169.95 with free delivery. Methinks that possibly somebody made a boo boo;-)

Thanks so much, was looking for a good price for this camera, and this deal is the cheapest even if it didn't come with the bag or card.

The same deal is £245 in currys!

Just ordered this thanks

I'll have a scout later. I've been told that Currys tend to have 'bargain bin' Hoya lenses stashed away. I'll have to check that as well.

Anyway first impressions. Daylight pics building against sky does seem to exhibit a fair bit of purple tinge. Maybe thats because it was on auto and I haven't read the manual. Probably easily correctable with the right settings and if not theres always PS eh. Very clear pictures though. Just took some night pics and by the christ its impressive. Definately need a tripod though for manual night shots. Auto is still acceptable though. One of the most impressive things though is the video, nice and clear even in darkness. Its also good to see that Fuji have used MJPEG on it rather than the usual asf/wmv encoding. The only critisism I will give on the video front is noise from the AF system. Not a lot Fuji could do about that though apart from adding an external mic. All in all i'd say well worth the money and a good all rounder:thumbsup:

Still available from Dixons and if you want to see the results that even a cack handed useless photographer like myself can get from it, take a look here : Click......
