Not a good choice..if you can space another couple of tenners...

tho.. ok for the price..

I got one a couple of weeks back for £97 from asda. It's a really nice camera, well put together and takes a really nice picture. It's lacking the modern wide angle lens but for me makes up for it with a really good panoramic mode.

AA batteries is a plus for me personally and it's still quite compact ( easy to handle and slip away into the wifes bag) :p
#3
Yeah I got it at ASDA for £97 a few weeks back too, along with a finepix leather case for £10
#4
Probably not enough of an upgrade from my old Olympus C-750, but looks like a good deal for a 'bridge' camera between compacts and DSLRs.

Could you tell me which camera you would recommend for a little more money? :)

Im a bit of a novice in photography but I am looking into buying a good camera at present.

Been looking at the Nikon D3000, but this one seems to have similar features. Can anyone tell me, in lay man terms, what are the main differences.

I know the D3000 is a DSLR but apart from that, any other big differences? :oops:

I like my S1500. I'm not a photographer but I wanted something more versatile than a compact and this does the job very nicely for me.

In simple terms the D3000 has a bigger senser an will take better quality pictures. If you are looking for quality go with the Nikon, if you just want to take casual snaps the Fuji may be a better choice.
#13
That's a lot of camera for the price though bear in mind the size - it won't exactly slip into your pocket so you are less likely to take it with you 'just in case'. The very best cameras don't take great pics when you didn't bring them with you.

For me the AA power would be an issue too but some prefer them.

There are some fabulous compacts around now with big lenses but not for under £100!

On balance - hot.

A DSLR compared with a bridge camera like this has:

- interchangeable lenses with a standard fitting for filters (e.g. polarizer, UV, Neutral Density - most of the rest you can probably do in your post-processing)
- an optical viewfinder, rather than an Electronic View Finder
- A bigger sensor, for faster exposures and/or less noisy low light photography
- At least an extra kilogram of weight. :-)

If you're coming from a point and shoot with no manual controls, a bridge camera like the S1500 may be a good, cheap stepping stone to get used to the manual controls you'll want to use with a DSLR to get the best from it.

Not really, an SLR has manual focus wheras the s1500 is auto only, can be annoying if what it focuses on in field of view isn't the intended target.
For me though the s1500 was the obvious choice as it was much better than all the other cameras in its price rance and I didnt want to get a base model SLR.
When I go SLR I want a decent Canon, Nikon etc probably £500+ not including extra lenses.

SLRs come in both manual AND automatic focus.

Also, the poster referred to a DSLR which is a totally different camera as it uses digital processing and storage. You are referring to an out dated 35mm film model. Even those came in both manual and automatic mode. I have owned Nikon and Canon SLRs so I can state this with some conviction.

Oh, well-spotted. My Olympus C-750 bridge camera from 2004 has manual focus, so I assumed this was pretty standard for cameras of this class. Googling the S1500, I see this is not the case; what a shame, as it's only software!

The problem with these 'bridge' cameras is they look more capable than they really are. They are made to resemble DSLR's but they share more in common with point and shoots. Despite their larger size they are hampered with tiny imaging sensors. These small sensors ensure that low light performance is poor compared to DSLR's.
Generally these types of camera lack decent manual controls. And even though this camera has a relatively large zoom range you are unable to control the depth of field like you can on a DSLR. Also these types of camera, and point and shoots in general, suffer from shutter lag.

Not all of your criticisms apply to all bridge cameras; whilst you're correct regarding the size of the sensor and shutter lag (compared with a DSLR, anyway), my old C-750 has both manual focus and P/A/S/M manual modes, so I can open up the aperture to f/2.8 and use the EVF to see almost exactly what the sensor is seeing. Not terribly impressive compared with a DSLR, but it was also about 1/6 to 1/3 of the price of DSLR bodies on the market back in 2004. The C-750 can also use an FL-36 or FL-40 external flash and add-on filters and lenses either via official Olympus or Raynox accessories.

If one picks wisely, I'm of the opinion that a good bridge camera can be an effective and economic stepping stone between the point-and-shoot and (D)SLR worlds (but to be perfectly clear, a replacement for neither).

How does this compare to the Panasonic Lumix FZ28 for the same price in the other thread?
