For users who are considering a digital SLR but aren't quite ready to take the plunge, the Fujifilm Finepix S6000fd offers a compelling argument for staying with an all-in-one.
From a distance -- and even from up close, actually -- it's easy to mistake the Fuji S6000fd for a digital SLR, though the camera's 10.71x (28 - 300mm) lens is not detachable. Nice touches like a rubberized ring-grip around the lens and full manual zoom control via the barrel give this camera a professional feel, and the grip is probably better than most small SLRs on the market, with a form that just feels right.
The S6000 is replete with fun and helpful technologies such as Face Detection, i-Flash, and the ability to shoot at light sensitivities of up to ISO 3200, making the Fujifilm S6000fd suitable for anyone. The best news is that Fujifilm's image quality is excellent from the 6.3 megapixel Fujifilm S6000, easily enabling 13x19 prints of excellent clarity. Even ISO 800 images are good at up to 11x14 with minimal loss of quality, and ISO 3200 shots are still usable at 5x7.
That's an impressive performance from an all-in-one like the Fujifilm S6000fd, especially at the under-$400 street price. See what we thought of the Fuji S6000fd in greater detail in our full review!
