Been tracking this camera on Ebuyer for a while at £146, but just checked today and it is down to £139.99! Meant to be an excellent camera, but for this price, an absolute steal! Recently superseded by the S8100, which goes some way to explain the low price.

good price:thumbsup:

I got this camera a while back, after having been posted on here (for £150 I believe).
Great camera, I'm really happy with mine. The optical zoom is amazing! Go for it as it's a brilliant price.

If you don't mind a refurb you can get it for about £114 delivered from the Fuji Shop if you use code P10MAYDIS20. ]Fuji Shop

I ordered one yesterday and it's being delivered today. Can't wait!

There is a 6 month warranty on the refurbs - is it just the standard 12 month warranty if bought from new? Anyone know? Also, you can get the S9600 for £141 delivered off the refurb site using that code.

Anyone know how the S8000 and the S9600 compare?

Fundamentally the f8000fd has an electronically controlled 18x zoom, image stabilisation, and a smaller sensor. The S9600 has a manually controlled 10.7x zoom, but has a larger sensor, but no image stabilastion. The manual zoom offers better control and is more DSLR-like.

For me the longer zoom, and image stabilisation swung it. A 10.7x zoom with no stabilisation wasn't tempting me much. You lose a little in overall image quailty on the s8000 compared to the S9600, but unless you're blowing em up really big you won't notice. Since the picture quality of the S9600 is rated as Truly Stunning, that'd make the S8000 only Stunning. But good enough for me.

Great price, I have been looking to update my old Canon A80 and this looks like it has everything I could ever need. HOT.....

Ta!

This site puzzles me.

I posted this camera when it was £125 from Jessops ]link .. and it only reached 25 degrees and was generally slated.

Yet now, at a more expensive price, this seems to be doing well.....

:thinking:

I bought the S9600 from fuji refurb a couple of weeks ago, I extended the warranty to 2 years, which also covers accidental breakage.
The camera looks as new, in fact it probably is. Absolutely stunning camera, dont regret it at all, eventhough I'm a novice. I got a 64mb xd card with it, but bought a 2GB aswell.
If your searching for reviews the S9600 is called the S9100 in the US

great deal heat added!!!! 18x zoom wow!!!!!!!!!

Sometimes it can depend on what time of day the deal is posted

This camera seems to get a hard time when compared to other 18x super zooms. I have this camera and it really is excellent. The zoom really is amazing.

Would this be good for a student photographer like myself I know little about camera models.

Thought I was leaning to the refurb S9600, but just found this in a review by someone on ebuyer:

random_ebuyer_customer

The command dial on my camera did not work. I searched the web for … The command dial on my camera did not work. I searched the web for information and found forums discussing this problem.It is a design flaw in the 9600, the plastic shaft between the dial and the printed circuit board breaks. The problem is not caused by misuse, just by normal use. The shaft is slightly off centre, as the dial is turned the shaft has to flex and bend slightly, the accumulated bending from side to side stresses the shaft until it breaks.



Not so sure now...

is the s9500 at fuji's site any good?

£120 for it with the 20%

i need something but i dont know what to get lol

OK for the price, but i would recommend a DSLR (Canon 400d) :thumbsup:

Agreed. Compacts don't give the photographic freedom that DSLR's give (interchangeable lenses, external flash etc). I'd have this to go along side a DSLR.

Aye, my dial broke...ebuyer courier came for it and replaced within 8 days.....I love my camera.....hope it doesn't lob off again....to be honest this time the dial feels more sturdy that the first one?????

Voted hot .... think I got it from ebuyer for £140 odd. I had to pay extra postage though because Inverness gets charged for being an Island (tongue in cheek)!!

It depends on your budget really. My own personal take on it (I am not a photographer BTW!) would be that if you are thinking about taking up photography and a DSLR is out of reach, then you need the next best thing, which would be something like the S9600, which you can get from fuji refurb for 177 inc delivery and extended 3 year warranty (using the 20% voucher). I would still get the S8000 from the refurb site as you will be able to get a 3 year warranty with it for about £143, again using the 20% code...

This camera is meant to be very good (and a steal at this price) if you can stretch to it: hotukdeals.com/ite…a-/

£200 is my max really want to be able to take wedding photographs and things like that for clients over the summer.

After looking at this camera time and time again I finally decided to take the plunge and ordered one on Friday!!

Only problem I paid for Saturday delivery but low and behold it didn't arrive......I suppose that's Citi Link for you!!! :x

If anyone knows anything of the older S7000 could they let me know their opinion?

Ta

Just ordered from Fuji, refurbished at £108.00 delivered using the previous code given . Thanks for this.
Peter

Brilliant and so easy to do - thank you!! A WHICH? best buy too. I ordered it on Sunday night, got emails etc to confirm, tracked it for 5 day free delivery and by noon on Wednesday had received it!!
I've set the camera up and had a play and what a difference to my other Samsung digital with a 3x zoom and small screen size.
