Fujifilm FinePix S9500 Zoom nine-megapixel camera

Can it compete with budget SLRs?

Remote control for virtualized desktops

The following images were taken with the Fujifilm FinePix S9500. The recording mode was set to 9M F mode, thereby using the full nine-megapixel resolution and the least-compressed JPEG setting; unless otherwise stated, the pictures were taken in Program mode with the default settings. The individual file sizes, shutter speeds, aperture, ISO and lens focal length are listed for each image.

The crops are taken from the original files, reproduced at 100 per cent and saved in Adobe Photoshop CS2 as JPEGs with the default Very High quality preset, while the resized images were made in Photoshop CS2 and saved with the default High quality preset. The three crops are typically taken from far left, central and far right portions of each image.

Church: 4.32MB, Program, 1/170, f8, ISO 100, 6.2-66.7mm at 6.2mm (equivalent to 28mm)

This shot of a city-center church demonstrates the S9500's wide-angle capability. The image was taken at quite close range, but the 28mm equivalent wide-angle allowed us to capture a larger field of view than most all-in-ones. The crops are sharp and detailed, although at 28mm, the S9500 performs best with its aperture closed.

Market: 4.20MB, Aperture Priority, 1/15, f8, ISO 400, 6.2-66.7mm at 6.2mm (equivalent to 28mm)

This photo of a market stall was taken under dim lighting conditions. We wanted a large depth-of-field so set the aperture to f8. In order to achieve a hand-holdable shutter speed under these conditions we had to increase the ISO to 400. The crops show a higher level of noise than the earlier examples and reduced detail, although it's acceptable for all but the largest reproductions.
