Panorama Shooting Mode

For capturing sweeping scenery or large groups of people, the new Panorama Shooting Mode makes it easy to create impressive panoramic photos. Panorama Shooting Mode captures and combines a maximum of three consecutive shots at 3 Megapixel resolution, which are saved to the memory card as a panoramic picture.

Face Detection Technology

Fujifilm's Face Detection technology works in the camera by triangulating eyes and mouth, using an algorithm to optimise focus, white balance and exposure for up to six faces in a single frame. Movement tracking keeps the camera 'locked on' to its subjects until they move out of the picture. The technology works irrespective of the subject's position in the frame, and is not confused by glasses.

Say goodbye to red-eye – for good

Red-eye is the single biggest reason why the best portraits are ruined. The FinePix S1000fd uses Face Detection technology to find and instantly correct any red-eye from every face in the frame as the shot is taken.

The system on the FinePix S1000fd will only correct redness in the pupil of the eye, not elsewhere in the picture, because the camera uses eye detection within face detection to find the pupil. While other cameras can sometimes convert lips or red jewellery to brown or blue, the FinePix S1000fd never gets it wrong.

Fujifilm's FinePix S1000fd also offers the following features:
[INDENT] Picture Stabilisation Mode: Picture Stabilisation uses the increased sensitivity of the FinePix S1000fd and high-speed shutter settings to reduce blur caused by hand-shake or subject movement. It allows the camera to automatically choose the correct light sensitivity and optimal shutter speed to produce clear, blur-free images.


Full manual photographic control: Photo enthusiasts and advanced photographers have total control with manual adjustment options for various camera settings including resolution, ISO, aperture, shutter speed and more.


High speed shooting: Capture the action with the High Speed Shooting mode: 7.5 fps @ 2MP for 15 shots; 3.3 fps @ 5MP for 6 shots; and 1.4 fps @ 10MP for 3 shots.


Movie Mode: VGA quality at 30 frames per second with sound.


14 Pre-programmed scene modes: The FinePix S1000fd features 14 pre-programmed scene modes that offer a one-touch setting for almost any situation, including: Portrait, Landscape, Sport, Night, Fireworks, Sunset, Snow, Beach, Museum, Party, Flower and Text.


xD/SD/SD-HC compatible slot: The FinePix S1000fd features an xD/SD Compatible slot which accepts not only Fujifilm's traditional xD-Picture Cards but also Secure Digital (SD) and SD-High Capacity/SD-HC cards too.


Operates on 4xAA batteries: The ultimate in convenience and accessibility, using AA batteries means in a pinch, more batteries are just moments away.

If you miss this one then you could get a refurbished one from the fuji shop for £99.99

I would go for the FinePix S100FS (£220 more but worth it!)

If you're looking for a Fujifilm long zoom camera at £110 do not buy this, buy an official Fujifilm refurb s8000fd at £110 here

I bought one 2 weeks ago, fantastic little camera and has a few things over the S1000fd:
1: Mechanical image stabilisation, I cannot stress how good this feature is, it allows low ISO shooting with almost stupid shutter speeds, an absolute godsend. The S1000fd only uses ISO boosting which isn't always good as it adds noise.
2: Better zoom range, from 27mm to 486mm, Wide angle to awesome close up, great feature.
3: The CCD isn't as crowded, the S8000fd is 8MP and uses a 1/2.35" and the S1000fd uses a 1/2.3" Sensor yet tries to pack 2 million more pixels in that space, that = more noise at lower ISO.

Although the S1000fd an average to good camera, the S8000fd is a great one, and the official refurbs are fantastic, when I got mine it could pass off as brand new, it was that good.

Voting lukewarm as some people seem to be scared to buy refurbs, even from a reputable source (If Fujifilm UK cannot be trusted with their own cameras, who can?), so some people will find this a bargain, otherwise, head for the S8000fd.

Edit: Of course it is expired now anyway, now people have even less of an excuse not to go for the better model. (How Jessops can charge £149.99 for this camera is beyond me, that's daylight robbery)

If you use the discount code "P24OCTOBER" it brings the price of the S8000fd to £104.62 delivered. :thumbsup:

So is the refurb S8000 a better buy than the new S5800 from Amazon at £20 less?

As a very happy S8000fd owner, yes, I would say for the the extra money the S8000fd is well worth it.

Is there much difference in image quality between the two? I see the S8000fd has 8MP to 10 on the 1000. Torn between which to get - seen some pretty good reviews of both models. Are there any other cameras in this style within a similar price range worth considering? Cheers...

Refer to my above post, the MP rating only tells part of the story, if the CCD isn't man enough to cope with the pixels being charged, it wont make a jot of difference.

I challenge anyone to say that, for even up to A4 prints, that anything above 6/7MP isn't enough, at higher than that, it's the quality of the lens/sensor that counts, and the S8000fd with it's mechanical image stabilization, better lens and less crowded CCD trounces the S1000fd in nearly every area, despite the lower MP rating.

As for rivals in the price range, in the super zoom category the Fujifilms seem to be in a league of its own. the cameras that rivalled the S8000fd at launch, The Lumix DMC-FZ18, PowerShot S5 IS (Only 12x Zoom) and the Olympus SP-560UZ cannot be found at anywhere near the the price of the Finepix.

In fact, the only Superzoom camera in the price range is the Kodak Z8612 which only has a 12x Zoom lens, has massive image quality issues at 400ISO and above, and is generally an average camera with nowhere near the handling quality of the Finepix S series.

So yeah, buy an S8000fd, it is really a case of a camera that at 1 year old, is a better older high end camera than the current mid end from this year released at the same price range.

Stopit, does the 8000fd come with a decent cloth neckstrap or the newer horrible nylon type?

And, where is it made? My older S5000 is Made in Japan and you can tell. The 5800 I just got is made in indonesia and feels much cheaper.

Thanks.

The strap itself is nylon I think, but the neck area has a soft velvety section that really feels comfortable when you sling it round your neck.

As for the build quality, although it is made in China (What isn't these days?), it is very well built, the thing feels very sturdy and there is no give anywhere but the flash (Which is a spring loaded pop-up) and the battery compartment, this is not a cheap feeling camera at all.

The memory card flap on this 5800 is so flimsy, I keep knocking it open accidentally which switches off the camera! I have looked at some in stores and they seem a tighter fit so this may just be a one-off with this camera. It's going back but I can't decide on whether to get another or the s8000...

Well in my view you should upgrade to the S8000fd, it is a very, very good Camera.
