The Fujifilm FinePix S1500 offers you SLR-quality performance, and point and shoot convenience, all in one camera. With the built-in 33-396mm super-telephoto lens, you'll have all the power you need to capture everything from rolling landscapes to insects strolling among the dewdrops on a leaf. Your images will be crisp and bright, even when you crop and enlarge, thanks to the S1500’s 10.0MP sensor.

Shoot in full automatic mode, or take creative control with manual ISO adjustments up to 6400, and exposure down to 1/2000 second. With a burst rate of 7.5 frames per second, you'll get every water droplet flying through the air at your kids' next swim meet, the dust flying off your husband's bat as he hits his next home run, or the shower of rice falling on the bride and groom as they leave their wedding.

Face detection technology can automatically focus on a subject's face and adjust exposure while Red-Eye removal function automatically reflect red-eye for a perfect portrait. No matter what you're shooting, the dual image stabilization compensates for your movements and those of the subject, to give you sharp images even in challenging conditions. The Fujifilm FinePix S1500 is versatile enough to satisfy both the serious photographer and the casual snapper.

5 out of 5 eggsI love this camera

Pros: Looks
Picture quality
Battery life
Ease of use
Did I mention the pictures look fantastic

Cons: Has more noise on lower ISO's then I like but the photos still come out fantastic looking. The lens cap comes off pretty easy. It wont fall off buy it self or anything but a slight bump with do the trick. Included software is rubbish Its useless. I use the software that came with my Samsung camera.

Other Thoughts: Go to Flickr and search for people and type in The Fatback. Anything from Dec 28 until now is from the S1500. I really wish I could express how much I love this camera but words just aren't enough.

P.S Get some rechargeable batteries I have 3 sets and I can go for over 1 month on just 1 set. I have only had to change batteries twice.

5 out of 5 eggscan't beat the price

Pros: Price and features. A lot of cool features for this camera and the zoom is good.

Cons: No manual focus but auto focus does a really good job.

Other Thoughts: For the price of this camera you can't beat it. No other camera comes close to this one for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value

Pros: Bought to replace a Canon A540. This camera is a significant upgrade in image quality, speed, and capability. Having full manual controls with onscreen light metering is also a big plus. Very pleased! This full-featured camera is a terrific value at its price point.

Cons: Just some "wish lists"--things I wish it came with or had that it doesn't:
--tutorials in the manual on using the manual controls
--a manual focus option
--a protective carrying case
--a HD movie mode

Other Thoughts: In the reviews I've read of this camera, image quality is frequently unfavorably compared to DSLR cameras. While no point and shoot camera is going to match a DSLR with their large sensors, the image quality of this camera is significantly better than I had been led to believe, a real improvement over my previous Canon camera, especially with the higher ISO settings.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Bridge Camera

Pros: This relatively compact camera packs quite a bit of punch for the price. It makes a great 'bridge' camera - being an intermediate between a basic point & shoot camera and a fully featured DSLR.

Cons: Zoom motor makes enough noise that it is audible upon play back when recording video. I personally do not use this camera primarily as a video recording device, but it's probably the biggest flaw that I have been able to find.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The camera is great. Easy to use and understand..

Cons: None yet so far pertaining to the camera, UPS shiping is another story though..

Other Thoughts: Because of UPS and their lack of quality and care for their customers, in the future I will first always look for a company that uses other options then UPS for shiping when purchasing online..They have total disreguard for ontime delivery and communication..other then that, newegg is great!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Camera - Great Service

Pros: - This camera is great for those looking for "something more".
- The Burst mode (15 shots in 2 seconds) is absolutely amazing
- Panorama mode is a cinch, and results are amazing
- 12x zoom. AMAZING 12x zoom.

Cons: - I had a failure after one day of use, the LCD went to snow and camera wouldn't respond at all.
- This is not really a "CON", as Newegg replaced the camera for me. Nice quick service, even though the camera was a few days pas the 30-day period (since it was a Christmas gift purchased early).

Other Thoughts: - The larger size body takes a bit of getting used to (assuming you are switching from a "micro" digital) , but it's really comfortable and easy to hold once you are used to it.
- Whoever it was on Newegg that recommended the rechargeable Powerex 2700 batteries - THANKS! These things took over 500 pictures and about a dozen videos in one day! And, to be honest, the batteries weren't anywhere near done. Best $17.50 I ever spent.
- If you want some of the best pictures outside of the SLR world, consider the S1500. It's truly awesome!
