DIWA AwardsFujifilm FinePix S9500 receives DIWA Gold Award : DIWA (Digital Imaging Websites Association), an organisation of collaborating websites within digital imaging, announces a DIWA Gold Award to the 9 Megapixel Fujifilm S9500 digital megazoom camera. Image quality is fundamentally depending on two vital elements in a digital camera, the image sensor and the lens. In both respects, Fujifilm is in full control. Their successful development of the Super CCD image sensors is a key factor in the S9500, with remarkable 9 Mp resolution and wide sensitivity range, between ISO 80 and ISO 1600. Also the lens exhibits unique features with 10.7x zoom range from 28mm wide angle to 300mm supertele, high f/2.8-f/4.9 lens speed and 1cm Super macro.

Optimum user friendliness of the Fujifilm FinePix S9500 is granted by two conventional rings for zooming and manual focussing, assisted by enlarged image for precision control. The bright and high resolution (235.000 dots) electronic viewfinder also features 100% coverage, dioptre adjustment and full information display. User friendliness is also distinguished by the flexible 1.8" LCD screen for high and low shooting angle.

Fujifilm FinePix S9500 - Test conclusion
Kai Thon, DIWA's test manager comments: "The FinePix S9500 is a compact package that will solve most photographic challenges from virtually any photographer, professional and amateur alike. It is also very budget-friendly, considering the price of any 28-300 mm f/2.8-4.9 zoom lens with super macro capability as close as 1 cm, not to forget the well reputed Super CCD HR image sensor with 9 Mp resolution and many professional-like features. DIWA experts found the FinePix S9500 to be a perfect assembly of imaging essentials built into a user-friendly body at a very competitive price."

FinePix S9500 camera - Image quality
Meeting the demands of ambitious photo hobbyists, the FinePix S9500 is equipped with a multitude of options for customising image quality, such as RAW and JPEG formats, fully automatic and manual control over exposure, white balance and flash, live histogram, creative colour settings and adjustable parameters for image processing, as well as USB 2.0 High Speed interface. The powerful pop-up flash lifts almost 9 cm above the lens to minimize the risk of red eyes and provides up to 5.6 m flash range. Fast auto focussing even in dim light is guaranteed by the ingenious pattern projecting AF-lamp.

Continuous shooting is handled by Fujifilm’s clever 4-image pre/post option with 1.9 fps, supplemented by high quality VGA movie shooting with 30 fps, voice narration to still images, hybrid auto focus with selectable focusing points, continuous AF, grid display for composition ease and a multitude of other useful features. First and foremost, however, it’s the fundamentals of the camera, such as ergonomic design, wise assortment of creative options and high image quality that made the Fujifilm FinePix S9500 worthy of a DIWA Gold Award.
