FinePix S9000/S9500 Zoom preview

August 30th, 2005

Dennis Hissink from Letsgodigital had a preview on FinePix S9000/S9500 Zoom and wrote

“Only a short while I have had the Fujifilm FinePix S9500 digital camera in my hands, and despite the fact that this model was of a pre-production status, I am enthusiastic about the versatile nature of the camera. The camera has a firm grip, lays perfectly stable in ones hand and it feels like you have been using this camera for some time. Though media are claiming and almost dictating us that 4 – 5 Megapixels is enough, I believe that Fujifilm is proving that high resolution like the 9 Megapixels of the Fujifilm S9500 offers more freedom in shooting and printing. Of course we do not need extra noise, but Fujifilm has its own secret powerful tool, the Super CCD HR image sensor, one remarkable sensor! I am sure the S9500 digital camera will find its way to the target group… As soon as we receive a full production model we will publish the Fujifilm FinePix S9500 digital camera review.. till then.. just enjoy the preview!”

Nikon D50 Review by CNET

August 30th, 2005

David D. Busch from Cnet gave 7.6 out of 10 ratings to Nikon D50 and wrote:

“The good:Strong performance; excellent image quality; low visual noise; simple modes for neophytes; robust burst mode.

The bad:Simplified controls sometimes clumsy to use; small viewfinder; no depth-of-field preview; only one set of custom parameters; raw-file editing/control software costs extra.

Nikon D50 Review & Sample Shots

The bottom line: Performance and features that rival those of more expensive digital SLR cameras make the 6-megapixel Nikon D50 one of the best entry-level options.”
