Has been around this price on and off for a while but great camera for the price.

Here is a nice rotatable pic. https://secure.fujifilm.co.uk/media/dContent/mediaCentre/Products/Camera-thumbnails-60x60Camera-thumbnails-60x60/3D-Demos/S8000/fuji.html

heres a review if anyone is interested in this, dont know much about cameras but might be worth reading up about it first :thinking:

good camera but there is a fault with them which is the wheel that you use to select the different functions is liable to break off. Just returned the one I bought for hubby to ebuyer, got replacement through no problem as they knew it was a known issue with them.
#4
Not a bad deal but just a shame this camera doesn't shoot in RAW, 2 main rivals in the "bridge" camera market (Olympus and Panasonic) do. But then you pay a few quid more for the other 2 so depends what you want from a camera.

if you don't mind a refurbished camera fuji have the s8000 for about £110 = del and the 8100 for about £140 + del (delivery is £5.99). You'll get a 6 month warranty (expendable to 4 years at extra cost - 2 yrs £30, 3 yrs £45, 4 yrs £60). Fuji apparently refurbish to a high standard.

There certainly is!
First search I did was full of this problem :-(

Pity as in some ways it is just what I as after, but warranty or not, who wants a camera that is going to lose the control knob!

Shame about the button problem. I actually don't know if I would be best with something like this or an entry level dslr as I currently have a tiny Sony 5.1mp T3 which is a great camera but mainly for close family type shots, parties etc as its very small. But on a trip sight seeing it is a little poor.

I have seen some deals lately for dslr's but not sure what to look for as I will be a complete novice.

Also what other camera's of this type are there for under 200 quid. Is it worth going for the 8100 over this or there not much in it?

Perhaps there is or was a real issue with the program wheel (I haven't been able to find more than one other mention of the problem); these things often get blown out of proportion. Perhaps eBuyer had got a dodgy batch ;-)

I've had no problem with the program wheel on my S8000fd - I've taken just under 4000 photos so far and use the program wheel a lot. I have two friends with S8000fds and they are both very pleased with their cameras.

If there is a fault with the camera Amazon should refund or replace with no problems. If you want a better level of cover try a Fuji refurb with 2 year accidental damage warranty - it won't be much different in price.

I can't really help you with alternatives as I haven't used any; but personally I don't think the S8100 will be worth the extra money.

Care to elaborate? It can be had for £199 so how much better is it?

Exactly, a fantastic camera, well my fz18 is and the fz28 must be even better! can't fault the panasonic and there must be some great deals on the fz18 now that the fz28 is out - can't see how you'd go wrong with either.

Who needs DSLR (except camera snobs;-) 28-502mm without having to fanny around changing lenses!

I have had this camera for nine months and purchased it off Amazon. I had never taken a photo in my life and this camera makes me look like I know what I am doing!!!

I do have my local rugby website that will let people see what pics can be taken but im unsure if I am allowed to put a link on for it????? If someone lets me know then I will post link and you can see the pics that I have taken and trust me I am just a point and shoot person!
#14
200 is my max budget and the fz28 can be had for 204 inc delivery and a 2 yr warranty. I like the idea of the rechargeable battery pack instead of aa batteries, though both types are good I am used to built in rechargeable batteries.

yeah that happened to me and also a friend of mine, but fuji took it back and repaired it for free!

i would get pc world to price match it

currently £149.99 after pricematch and promise £136.79

not much but if you live near pc world......

Ive got the fuji S8000 and have had since January, now please bear in mind I am an absolute techno dummy with photos and never really took a pic. The link is for my local rugby club who I post pics for....please do not expect anything professional on it, I just take the photos as I go to the games and its no hardship to do this.

http://www.burntwoodrugby.co.uk/brufc/news/11-10-08photos.htm

There are other pics for match reports that I have taken, but please, be gentle with me, I am a point and shoot and this should give you an idea of the capabilities of the camera

Ive got this camera and have'nt had any problems yet,it's the best camera i have ever had.Some nice shots there Joannekerry
#20
I got this camera about 4 months ago, I am not happy with it but you guys might be less picky then me.
The only thing that worked great for me was macro outside.
all the photos with flash inside sofar have been bad.

Anyone for whom picture quality and creative control is important.
For me these 'SLR style' cameras are the worst of both worlds.

If you want to take reasonable photo's I think this Fuji is Pretty good, I'm happy with mine.[IMG]http://i33.tinypic.com/2cnjo01.jpg[/IMG]

Nice pic Trachycarpus,I too have an S8000fd and I'm more than happy with it.
Its not difficult to get superb results with litle effort :)

I am all set on getting the panasonic fz28 but some reviews say it has lots of noise and it feels a bit cheap. Now is it worth paying £211.99 inc delivery for it over this which is much cheaper? I like the idea of the rechargeable batter pack giving over 400 shots on one charge over the fuji taking AA batteries but not sure it is worth the extra. Then there is the nikon P80:?

Most compact ccd cameras suffer from noise problems - a result of stuffing too many pixels on the ccd. The FZ28 has 36MP/cm2 and the FZ18 has 32MP/cm2 - so unless Panasonic are using some new miracle pixel stuffing technology on the FZ28 they'll be struggling to cope with noise. The same goes for the Fuji S8000 and S8100.

(When I was looking to buy I felt that the FZ18 partly got good reviews because it's raw mode allowed you to turn off the automatic noise reduction and apply your own corrections out of the camera).

In the end my choice was driven by price - at the time the S8000 was £100 cheaper than the FZ18.

Good luck with your decision - I'm sure you'll be happy whichever you choose.:thumbsup:

Thanks for that. It is not an easy decision but i am now erring on the fuji side based on price alone, though the auto setting on the panasonic seems better and it will be used on auto lots to begin with. The panasonic comes with a 2yr warranty too.
#27
I got sick of thinking about it and went for the panasonic as it seemed to get better reviews though more expensive. I am planning to keep it some time if it produces good shots and dont break on me so it is probably worth the extra, time will tell.

Thanks for everyones help.:thumbsup:

The fz28 is a great camera with loads of functions and settings to help you take some fantastic photos, don't take too much notice of the experts- everything I have ever bought has been criticised, from dell laptops to red wine!!! I don't think £230 will break the bank and panasonic is a very good brand. I also bought a Sandisk Extreme lll to get fast results.

Looking forward to getting it. It cost £212 inc delivery. £6 for a genuine panasonic case on ebay and an 8gig kinston class 6 SDHC from mymemory for 10.99inc. So around 230 all in as you say.

I was just looking at the pictures from a trip to london taken on our 4 yr old sony t3 and they are very poor and that cost me around 300 quid and 59 quid for the sony 512mb mem card! Good for party photo's and carrying in a bag or glovebox only now I think.

Is now down to £134.99...
