From the Manufacturer

Fujifilm has added another "first" to its imaging legacy with the introduction of the SLR-styled FinePix S9000 digital camera, the world's first nine megapixel model for advanced amateur photographers.

Advanced digital photographers have been eagerly awaiting this addition to Fujifilm's popular S-series line. The FinePix S9000 digital camera boasts 9.0 effective megapixels that capture up to 3,488 x 2,616 recorded pixels (9.12 million)--the highest resolution of any consumer-grade camera on the market as of Summer 2005.

While these record-breaking numbers are impressive alone, Fujifilm understands there is more to a great digital picture than resolution. It is this understanding, along with its rich history of photographic excellence, which drove Fujifilm to incorporate its groundbreaking Real Photo Technology into the FinePix S9000. The company's latest innovation matches the nine megapixel, 5th Generation Super CCD HR sensor with a super-sharp Fujinon lens and the RP Processor technology found currently in the critically-acclaimed FinePix F10 digital camera.

A hallmark of Fujifilm's Real Photo Technology is its ability to reduce the amount of graininess or "noise" in digital pictures. This noise is often apparent in high-resolution photos, particularly those shot at high ISO-equivalent sensitivities. With Real Photo Technology, the FinePix S9000 can take pictures at ISO 1600--at full resolution. Other benefits of Real Photo Technology include speed of operation (the FinePix S9000 has a high-speed start-up time of only 0.8 second with shutter lag down to 1/100 second) and longer battery life.

In addition to offering low noise processing, the new FinePix S9000 is equipped with a bevy of features that will appeal to the photo hobbyist. One of those features is a world-class Fujinon 10.7x wide-angle optical zoom lens that is the equivalent of having a 28-300mm zoom on a 35mm camera. This zoom range is ideal for a wide variety shooting situations and thus makes the purchase of additional lenses unnecessary.

Other features appealing to the photo hobbyist include:

  • Mode dial with multiple settings, including Anti-Blur that automatically adjust the camera's ISO settings to combat camera shake and blur and Natural Light for more natural looking photos, particularly in low light
  • A manual zoom that along with the auto exposure and auto focus functions, are operational during full frame (VGA-quality; 30 fps) movie capture
  • The ability to shoot in the RAW file format
  • A Super Macro Mode for pictures up to 0.4 inches
  • Hot shoe and syncronizing terminal for external flash
  • Live histogram exposure setting checks prior to shooting
  • In-camera highlight warning function that alerts the user to "overexposed" areas of just-taken pictures
  • Strong auto-focus assist illuminator for quicker focusing in low light
  • Tilting LCD for high and low-angle shooting; adjustable LCD and electronic viewfinder; frame rates of 30 frames per second or 60 frames per second for smoother viewing
  • Dual media slot accepts xD Picture card and CompactFlash/Microdrive
Framing pictures through the FinePix S9000's LCD as well as its video features should be of particular interest to many advanced amateur digital photographers who want all the controls of a digital SLR camera but are hesitant to lose some of the convenient and useful features commonly found in point-and-shoot cameras. The FinePix S9000 offers the best of both worlds: the photographic controls of a DSLR and the movie mode and LCD framing capabilities of the point-and-shoots.

A powerful and capable camera in its own right, that can take stunningly good images let down only by glaring usability issues. The overall performance envelope is head and shoulders above any prosumer class camera on the market. The only cameras that can best the s9000 in performance, handling, build and image quality are current dSLR's. And even then, not by much.

You would have to spend real money in dSLR-land for the body and lenses (plural) to match or beat what this camera is capable of.

Unfortunately, you may not get that impression upon first use out of the box. The unintuitive menu system alone made me want to bash the camera against a hard rock. The AF system seemed to hunt all over the place. The pictures didnt seem as sharp as its predecessors. Low light performance seemed abysmal. The write speed is often slow.

This isnt a point and shoot camera for the new photographer. It is a hugely capable camera for the serious photographer. The learning curve is steep. Very steep. Reading the manual and taking the time to learn the features and capabilities is mandatory, not optional.

But once you do learn the camera, it is a delight in operation and image quality. It is super quick. You can have it powered up, up to your eye, focused and ready to take the picture in less than 2 seconds. The focusing system, used properly, is sure and fast. The images capture a wide range of subtle details. The colors are natural and are nicely punched up in Chrome mode. ISO from 80-1600 is available in all modes. You can take pictures in near darkness (ISO AND EV compensation is your friend). The handling is sweet. The camera feels like professional kit.

Hey,l if you on a market for digital camera and some $575 does not scare you off get this camera! Don't listen to these tailored by other brands review because FUJi has here absolutely the best product you can dream of. I have a quite experience with digital cameras of any kind, I own two DSLR and they are in a bad shape comparing to this baby.
First it takes AMAZINGLY nice photos, with nice contrast, full of detail, excellent color reproduction and ALWAYS PERFECT light balance. The photographic quality of this camera is better than any so called "entry level" DSLR and they hate it!!! Hat down to FUJI for this camera it is a real photographic tool, with lens that is so good that I can't express it enough. If you will decide to go with DSLR you will have to spent AT LEAST $2000 to be on a par with this lens. Forget this stupid chi-chat of "the sensor size is smaller..., blah, blah, blah" who cares of the size if the photos are miles ahead and the convenience is untouchable by any DSLR? Ah?
Second all those who pour on this camera didn't find anything better to complain about that is "poor noisy ISO-1600". Who shot on ISO 1600 unless you are a spy ? I make some 22000 (twenty two thousands, not a typo) photos during a year 2005, I found 16 (sixteen, not a typo again) made on ISO 1600. It is pretty much useless ISO that virtually NO ONE uses. It is the same thing as to complain that your car has a poor acceleration on the altitudes above 8000 feet. May be it really does but who cares?!
Second this camera has SUPERIOR VIDEO mode. You can capture full blown videos, movies and make it as a top quality camcorder does and it is extremely nice!!! I don't take my camcorder anymore, I bring back some 15-20 minute of nice footage , because no one bother to watch longer than that anyway.

I had high hopes for this camera when I bought it. My goal was to find the best fixed lens digital camera (often referred to as DigiCams) on the market that fit my particular needs. I wanted a DigiCam instead of a digital SLR because I hate changing lenses often and I didn't want to deal with dust on the sensor.
My needs:
1. At least 8 megapixels
2. Fast shutter response (very little lag between the time you push the button and when the shutter fires.
3. Good wide to telephoto optical zoom.
4. Good auto focus
5. High ISO
6. Low noise
7. Good color response and sharpness

I used the camera for about 2 weeks. It is 9 mega pixels so good resolution. The shutter lag was excellent... almost nonexistent. It responded like an SLR in that respect.

The telephoto on the FinePix S9000 is a 10.7x optical zoom (28-300mm), very good. The only thing I wish the FinePix S9000 had is image stabilization. I believe there is only one 8 MP DigiCam on the market with a longer optical zoom, the Samsung Digimax Pro815. I decided against the Samsung because even though it has a longer telephoto, reviews said it had long shutter lag, focusing can feel slow, and hunts - and often fails - at long end of zoom, especially in low light, and no high ISO capability (400 was top).

The auto focus on the FinePix S9000 is excellent. And, it has an AF illuminator which focuses very quickly in low light.

The FinePix S9000 has a high ISO of 1600. However, noise starts to be a problem at any ISO higher than 400. That was a bit of a disappointment.

The color response and sharpness was a bit of a disappointment at first. Using it in "Standard" mode, the photos were a bit dull looking.
