    I do and I just wanted to say that I am really chuffed with it.

    It is the first camera where I could control aperture and shutter, great for night shots and with 9mp - fantastic detail :)

    Thanks

    Is this the camera that you're using at the mo for your weather photography? There's some nice shots on your homepage. :)

    Yes it is :) - it's a shame I can't share them in full detail though as each jpeg is 4.5MB :eek:.
    It has 640x480 30 fps video recording too which is great.

    Thanks for looking at my site :)

    I saw this camera today in the store... I picked it up and was interested in it.

    Interesting design. Looks like a DSLR, but its not...?

    I continued on to look at the D50. :)

    I have this camera! It's the Fujifilm S9000. It's an amazing camera. It's hard to take a bad shot. My wife has even turned out some great shots. She used to not take many shots with our Canon S1 IS.

    Ahh.. my error. I hijacked the thread by confusing the cameras.

    An E900... not an S9000... Ah! I'm a freakin idiot!

    :eek: :confused: ;)

    Here's the real E900!

    I've got the Fujifilm E900 and I like it very much. It travels with me everywhere in my purse and I very much like being able to exert more control over it than a usual P&S. I've gotten some nice images from it -- my entry in last month's "assignment" thread (Yellow) was shot with it -- and I like the way it handles and the results I get from it.

    that is a good picture (the "yellow" one)
    i've heard some people experience a lot of purple fringing, is this true?
    any complaints about this camera?
    would you recommend the M card or the H card?

    Thanks for the compliment! I haven't really noticed any purple fringing/chromatic aberration and I don't have any major complaints about this camera. As for the cards, I've got both the "H" and the "M" and don't really notice that much of a difference, to be honest. Both seem to be speedy enough.... Now this is not my only camera and it is not the camera I use for "serious" photography -- it's the one which lives in my purse and which I pull out at those times when I see an interesting scene or when I see something I want to shoot for an assignment here to to share on the internet but don't happen to have my D200 with me.

    I'd say that yes, it's a very nice camera.

    I have an e510 and after two years it's screwing up. Could be user error but the camera shuts off randomly.

    No idea. I didn't buy it to be a video camera. If I'd wanted a video camera I would research those and buy one of them..... I bought the e900 for use strictly as a camera for making still digital images.

    Not with the e900, no..... I keep it in aperture priority, fine quality jpeg..... I know that Aperture now supports the RAW files of this camera, which it didn't when I first got it and was first using it, but haven't experimented with that yet. I DO, however, shoot my D200 in NEF (RAW).
