Fujifilm FinePix S1500 review

 

Occasionally, a camera that is good becomes better when a low price is part of the overall package. That is sadly not the case with the 10-megapixel Fujifilm FinePix S1500, which is merely a good megazoom, but stays that way despite a street price of...

Nice design; excellent feature set; reasonably simple to use.

Picture quality drops off above ISO 200; occasionally sluggish performance.

Even for a full-featured megazoom camera at a low price, the Fujifilm FinePix S1500 delivers average photo quality and mixed performance.

Fujifilm FinePix S1500 Review

 

The Fujifilm FinePix S1500 is a new super-zoom digital compact camera that looks and feels like a DSLR. Featuring a 12x zoom lens and 33-396mm focal range, 10 megapixels and 2.7 inch LCD screen, the Fujifilm S1500 offers full manual photographic...

Like all bridge cameras the Fujifilm FinePix S1500 sets itself up as a jack-of-all-trades device, and this time for a reasonable price indicative of its manufacturer's mass-market intentions. In fact, for just over £200, it feels like a lot of camera...

My primary digital camera is a Fujifilm FinePix S9100. I purchased this a few years ago when a digital SLR camera system was out of out of my price range, but I wanted a capable live-view camera that didn't feel like a toy in my hands and afforded me...

Impressive optics ; Value ; Convenient memory card and battery formats ; Screen and controls well suited for point-and-shoot operation

Manual control and advanced photography modes are less accessible due to point-and-shoot control scheme, although available

Depending on where you go, the camera will cost around ’00 (USD), which is a good value for a powerful point-and-shoot. In some cases it succeeds as a crossover camera, offering impressive optics and imaging capabilities. I wouldn't consider it...

Fujifilm FinePix S1500 digital camera

 

Like to get more creative with your photography but put off making the leap from compact snapper to fully blown digital SLR by the perceived learning curve and bulk, plus the need to supplement the purchase with additional lenses? Then, in aiming to be...

Fairly priced, larger than average zoom range, good "bridge" option for those wanting a wider range of compositional choices without being unduly overwhelmed

Video picks up operational noise, noticeable shutter delay in single shot mode, "IS" not reliable

Though no match for the picture quality and response time of an entry level DSLR, the S1500 is more approachable, the only extras required being a removable SD or SDHC media card for storing pictures plus a set of rechargeable AAs. It’s a "one size...

FujiFilm FinePix S1500

 

If you are on a budget, but want a camera that has the look and feel of a dSLR camera, the Fujifilm S1500 may fit the bill.

Rugged design ; Excellent features ; Long zoom range

Noise presence even at ISO200 ; Long shutterlag ; Poor low light performance ; Grainy video ; No HD Video

Rugged design with long list of controls. The FinePIx S1500 has longer than average zoom lens in this category but is rather noisy at ISO 200, which brings the rating down.

Even for a full-featured megazoom camera at a low price, the Fujifilm FinePix S1500 delivers average photo quality and mixed performance.

Nice design ; Excellent feature set ; Reasonably simple to use

Picture quality drops off above ISO 200 ; Occasionally sluggish performance

If you want the most zoom with the most features for less than AU$400, the Fujifilm FinePix S1500 is probably the best way to go. There are other models that have more zoom in its price range, but aren't as versatile. Though its photo quality isn't...
