Fujifilm FinePix S1000fd Reviews

DevHardware reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S1000fd and writes;
“the Fujifilm S1000fd is truly a winner. I know I’m happy with mine, so I have no problem recommending it to anyone looking to upgrade from a point-and-shoot who is not quite ready for a DSLR camera.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Steve’sDigicams reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S1000fd and writes;
” the FujiFilm FinePix S1000fd is a bit of a mixed bag. While the feature list makes this seem like a very appealing model, the below average shooting performance, horrible High ISO image noise, and just “average” 10-megapixel image quality results lower its appeal… This model does have the ability to capture nice photos, just be sure you lock the ISO at 200 or below “

Cameras.uk reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S1000fd and writes;
“This camera comes in more at the budget end of the super zoom spectrum. This means it does not have every bell and whistle. On the whole it does what it sets out to do quite well, but I did find the photo soft with the zoom fully extended.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

CNET.UK reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S1000fd and writes;
“Indeed, the S1000fd’s biggest strength is its decent image quality at faster ISO speeds. Even at the maximum ISO 3,200, detail is still relatively crisp, with colours not too washed-out.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

GoodGearGuide reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S1000fd and writes;
“Noise performance was also disappointing. Even at ISO 200 there were signs of speckling, and by ISO 400 our shots had a noticeable white graininess to them; this was visible even at small print sizes. Anything above that is basically unusable”
Rating: ★★★½☆

ePhotozine reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S1000fd and writes;
“For those of you after a small digital camera with a long zoom and creative features, then this is a camera for you to consider. It’s lightweight, stupidly easy to use and has a few nifty little features that other companies don’t offer.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

DCR reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S1000fd and writes;
“The S1000fd’s exposure and image processing are consistently and dependably accurate in virtually any sort of outdoor lighting, but there is a slight tendency toward over-exposure and occasional burnt-out highlights…Images shot between ISO 64 to ISO 200 have acceptably low noise levels, but noise starts to pick up slightly – ISO 200 and ISO 400 shots show some minor loss of detail. ”
Rating: N/A

Pocket-Lint reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S1000fd and writes;
“The image quality is average, the interface clunky and the overall camera design is button heavy. Compared to the Nikon P80, also in this long optical zoom class, we would opt for the Nikon every time.”
Rating: ★★½☆☆

TrustedReviews reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S1000fd and writes;
“Performance is mediocre at best, and while it performs well in low light it is lacking in final image quality. Whether you’re looking for a small cheap zoom camera or a well-specified super-zoom there are better alternatives on the market, several of them other Fujifilm models.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆
