An incredibly versatile camera designed for serious hobbyist and enthusiast photographers, the nine megapixel FinePix S9600 features Fujifilm's successful Super CCD HR sensor and Real Photo Processor, delivering IS0 1600 performance and enabling capture of crisp and clear images even in low light conditions.
Fujinon 10.7x optical zoom lens
The camera's 10.7x (28-300mm 35mm equivalent) zoom lens incorporates aspherical elements that result in a sharper image. The aspherical elements in the lens ensure that the path of light is as precise as possible, which in turn minimises distortion and aberrations. The lens is easily controlled via a manual zoom ring to give pinpoint accuracy when composing images. Furthermore, its fixed housing ensures that users do not have to contend with specks of dust or dirt collecting on the sensor. This can compromise image quality and is a drawback often associated with conventional digital SLRs.
Improved image quality and autofocus
Image quality in the FinePix S9600 has been enhanced through improvements to its processing algorithms, which result in improved image sharpness and resolution. Composition of photographs is made easier with an increased-size two-inch tilting LCD monitor, providing even clearer, flexible shooting at awkward high or low angles. A higher resolution of 230,000-pixels gives greater screen clarity. Composition of photographs using the LCD screen further differentiates the camera from conventional digital SLRs, which rely solely on a viewfinder for composition and make use of the LCD screen for image playback only.
Fujifilm continually strives to achieve better performance in low light. In these conditions, the FinePix S9600 has an autofocus response time that is up to 40 per cent quicker than its predecessor. In addition to the camera's 0.01 second shutter-lag and 0.8 second start-up time, this means that images can be composed and captured almost instantaneously. Combined with Fujifilm's acclaimed high ISO performance, which combats image blur caused by subject movement as well as camera shake, the FinePix S9600's responsiveness makes it an ideal tool for enthusiast photographers looking to photograph fast paced subjects such as those at sporting events or in the wild.
ntelligent Flash system
In another advance on its predecessor, the FinePix S9600 features Fujifilm's Intelligent Flash system, which delivers balanced flash power output. Historically, using flash at night has resulted in unsatisfying backgrounds, be it the black, underexposed appearance of conventional flash or the blurred 'swirl' of slow-sync flash. By comparison, Intelligent Flash means that images captured in low light have not only a blur-free well-exposed background but also natural-looking foreground illumination, free from the stark brightness that can be a by-product of flash photography.
Software and optional accessories
Enthusiast photographers will appreciate the Hyper Utility Software HS-V2 version 3 that is bundled as standard for the first time with the FinePix S9600. This software gives full functionality in RAW file conversion, which enables the photographer to explore the control and flexibility enjoyed when working with a 'lossless' file format.

I would have said Play (same price as Amazon), use one of the vouchers on here (if they're still valid) + 4% Quidco.

By the way, it's not me voting this cold... I'd buy from Amazon first of any of these others.

Mind you they don't equal DSLR and should be much cheaper.

https://secure.fujifilm.co.uk/shop/consumer/digital/digital-cameras/d-slr-long-zoom/finepix-s9600theres always a few refurbished ones quite cheap?



Except in this case there aren't :whistling:

£195 may be the cheapest price around at the moment but a few weeks ago you could get a refurb with 3 years warranty for less that £150. At this price you'd be better saving a few more pennies and buying a proper DSLR.

You sure it was £150? I bought around that time maybe just after when the 20% voucher was around. I got the cam & 3 year warranty for £177.58 inc Delivery. Still a good price for the Cam & Warranty.

Don't know much about the SLR game but this model seems to get a lot of discussion.... pro or otherwise.

Its bound to re-appear keep checking the site if your interested & in no rush.

PS: Anyone with an SLR will always knock anything that isn't I have found while looking at the forums.

I don't own a DSLR but still believe that the Fuji S9600 is overpriced compared to a DSLR. It's worth £120 max. Fuji sold the much better S6500 for less but unfortunately it's discontinued.

:oops:Sorry Sparky - You must be correct on the price - I shouldn't trust my memory ;-)

I don't mean to slate the 9600 - I think it's a great camera and much higher picture quality compared to say the Fuji S8000 which I have - but I had the chance to compare the s9600 and a Nikon D40 last week which I thought was streets ahead of it.

Not everyone, while my personal choice is an SLR I very much believe there is still a market for a bridge camera as an all in one solution. SLRs are much less complete 'out of the box', have no movie mode and tend to be that bit more bulky and there's always something more you want to buy for them, a longer lens, wider lens, better flash, macro lens etc.

With regards to the Fuji it was one of the standout bridge cameras for a while however it's been on the go a long time now and against different competition it's not quite such a hot buy.
