Fujifilm FinePix S9500 Zoom nine-megapixel camera

Can it compete with budget SLRs?

Mobile application security vulnerability report

To compare real-life performance we shot the same scene with all three cameras within a few minutes of each other using their best quality JPEG settings and an aperture of f8 in Aperture Priority mode. The crops are taken from the originals and presented here at 100 per cent.

The first image below was taken with the Fujifilm S9500 at 12mm f8 (54mm equivalent); the original JPEG measured 4.28MB. Sporting an additional megapixel over its rivals here, the S9500's 100 per cent crops show a slightly smaller area, although the actual resolved detail remains very similar across all three models.
