I just got this camera the other day and to be honest I'm not that happy with it, there is an awful lot of noise in the images that are produced. The ISO setting seems to be automatic and haven't yet found a way to manually set this. Even though it's an 8 megapixel camera, the quality in my mind is pretty poor. This camera has an 18x Optical Zoom and though I haven't used it to it's full advantage, my hopes aren't high for the quality. There are 2 Macro modes, Macro and Super Macro which is good and close but again the nosie level is bad. Wishing I had opted for the S9000z now! I have had a few Finepix cameras and haven't wanted to change my mind about them until this one.

Compared to a few other slide films I've used for landscape & lightning shots, this film is heads above Kodak Elite 100 & Velvia. The Elite gave much more blue in the sky (often too much). The Velvia gave a slight golden hue to lightning flashes and the white clouds of a sunset. But, if I was shooting portraits, I believe I'd go with Velvia. If I was shooting green landscapes & foliage, Elite would be my choice.
