"Super Zoom Compact Digital Camera @ Asda"

I've got one of these, and i wouldn't call it "Compact" :)
#2
but would you say its any good thinking of a gift to my father.
#3
Fuji cameras are very good, and hold value quite well. Good buy. pity i twas the next model up!

Very good camera, and excellent picture results. You'll need to buy a memory card and a good set of rechargeable AA batteries.
#5
I nearly bought this when it was £130.
Very good price now.
I'd get it if I hadn't already bought a Pentax.
I'd say it's hot.
#6
Had one now for over a year. Not a pocket cam. Great picture results
#7
awesome deal, it's around £115 elsewhere
#8
Sod it. I bough this when it was £115.

A really good deal and a REALLY good camera.

Saw a review on The Gadget Show for this size of camera, and I think they are called "Bridge" cameras....inbetween Compact and SLR
#10
Great camera and I don't think your father will be disappointed!
#11
Only downside I think is as it is only USB 1.0 and not 2.0 uploading a lot of pics/video to computer can be slow ( using up batteries) TIP:if you have a sony PSP then the mains lead and low voltage plug (yellow insert type) is compatable with the specs of the Fuji and can be used instead of paying big bucks for genuine Fuji mains adaptor).
#12
:thumbsup:
#13
Hot. Used to have a S5500. Great camera! but as others have said, not a compact.
#14
Bridge cameras are the best play-off between picture quality and price, but at £97 this camera is well into mid-prices for actual compacts so if size doesnt bother you, this is an inferno-hot deal. I myself have a Panasonic Lumix bridge and I love it, but remember bridge camera and pockets are a match made in hell. So again this is something you need to consider.

PS. The fujifilm bridge's are usually pretty good but tend to have a bit of a chroming effect in busy pictures, but looking around, this model seems pretty damn good. When you consider the price it's a no brainer!

Or buy yourself a card reader and take the card out, dumping the shots to PC that way. I rarely install any extraneous crap on my PC's if I can help it, the programs they come with are normally bloatware
#16
I think for a bridge camera this is not any better pic quality than say, a Pana TZ6/65 so if you can afford the extra £50 then the TZ65 is still available for £149 and is MUCH more compact.

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/641154/panasonic-lumix-dmc-tz65-digital-ca

The TZ65 also is much wider at the wide end which I like.

However for the money, this is a hot deal.

Looking at the camera specs. seems a very good deal, proper image stabilisation for starters, which the older Fuji bridge cameras didn't have. You could say it's quite compact for a bridge camera ( has the term zSLR gone out of fashion now?) ; in terms of transfer speed I usually stick the SD card straight in the PC to get round this issue.

any deals for this camera case?

any deals for this camera case?

I was about to buy one of these from Amazon and had already looked at cases. Found this great deal on one that is recommended by Lowpro for the S1500. I have a larger version of this bag for my SLR and it's great. The same case in black is £18!

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Lowepro-Cirrus-Bridge-Digital-Cameras/dp/B000U7H9M0/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1270309167&sr=8-8

What a first post OP! Saved me £20-odd. Heat and rep left, stonking deal!
#21
I bought one of these last year and it's a nice camera (definitely not compact). This is a very good price, almost the same as a refurbished one.

I have mine in a Lowepro Apex 100AW bag, which fits perfectly and feels like body armour.
#22
Comprehensive review here: http://www.trustedreviews.com/digital-cameras/review/2009/05/19/Fujifilm-FinePix-S1500/p1

I think the main issue is with 'barrel distortion' and there's nothing you can do about that (unless correcting in studio), as the lens isn't removable.

For the price it seems a nice enough camera.
#23
Ordered, thanks!
#24
Do I buy, do I not buy. Aarghh. I really shouldn't look at this site anymore.
#25
Its a bit big in my opinion, Here is the camera in use

Another item off my list - thanks!

I've ordered for local collection, and I've also ordered the carry case posted above.

A really good deal and a REALLY good camera.




I echo this comment. I too bought one at £115 recently and I don't regret a single penny of the cost.

The camera is a vast improvement on my Nikon compact although, as pointed out and can be seem from the picture, it's not COMPACT.

A bargain price I'd say for a 10 mega pixel 12 times optical zoom 'bridge' camera.
#28
Just bought the newer version of this for £134.99 (S1730) :-(

Damn
#29
Good deal, very interested in this.

I'm wondering if this is a better deal though...?
http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/5593543.htm?tag=ar:cat:p:digicam:fuji
A newer / higher model I believe, and you can get a half-price case with it too. Better features, higher megapixels, better video...?

My only concern with these is the AA batteries; anyone have experience on how long they tend to last?

Just looking at that too :)
http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/5593543.htm?tag=ar:cat:p:digicam:fuji
From there? Seems the better deal to me - better features, zoom, megapixels and larger screen. You can get the case with it half-price too. Have reserve one and will probably buy tomorrow, just wondering about the AA batteries; anyone have experience on how long they tend to last.

Still trying to twist my good ladies arm to buy me 1! :thumbsup:

I use rechargeables like the 2100mah 'good to go' from 7dayshop.com who do free delivery on everything

and here's a charger for only £2.99

So a charger and 8 batteries (4 as spare) for £10.97 delivered

Don't get the case as reviews say it only just fits and is quite hard to get the camera strap in too. I got a cheap one from ebay for £5.99 and it fits the camera fine and leaves plenty of room for the strap. It's made out of fake leather like the argos one so is quite showerproof

Of there is this case from amazon

AA rechargeable batteries?

There's still some of these,Camlink Delta Battery Charger With 4 x AA 2700 Ni-MH Batteries - £4.99, kicking about in Home Bargains, well Thornaby branch at least
