Fujifilm FinePix S1500 gets reviewed


Fujifilm's FineFix S1500 got a little lost among the company's slew of other cameras unveiled back at PMA and CeBIT, but the camera's now finally moving out on its own, and the folks at Photography Blog have seen fit to give a thorough review. In case you missed it, this one's a 10-megapixel bridge camera, and packs quite a few impressive features for its $200 street price, including a 12x optical zoom, image stabilization, a decent 2.7-inch LCD, and a full range of manual controls in addition to the usual point-and-shoot options. According to Photography Blog, however, while the S1500 "feels like a lot of camera for the money," it falls a bit short when it comes to image quality, and things seem to get particularly tricky if you're shooting in less than ideal conditions. That said, is is just $200, and should still be a nice upgrade for anyone looking to move up from a basic point-and-shoot.
