Fuji S1 Pro Digital SLR - Anyone Used It?

Mon Jan 22, 2001 6:35 pm

Hi Guys,

I'm now this close to getting the Fuji S1, as the Nikon D1 is just a bit too rich for my blood (US$5,000+++!). I have read the various reviews, which are more than favourable, but of course an aviation photographer who has used it would be the best. Or will I have to be the guinea pig!??

Look forward to your replies.

Andrew

Hi Andrew

Contact Paul_Dopson@rc.hrdeu.com

I have been talking to him over the last few days and he has just purchased one of them........and the quality of the shots rock!

I think it cost a couple of thousand Pounds :-(

Hope you get the info you required.

Or you can talk to me here  Smile

I picked up one two weeks ago but have only had about an hour playing with it. Gary has seen the pictures and as he says the quality is outstanding, I have only used it in basic point and shoot mode (never used a digital before) so plenty more things to explore.

I have 49 pics in the queue roughly 300 ahead so there be appearing soon (maybe) All I have done to them is resize them down from the 3030 highest setting and saved them as a jpeg with minimum compression. I think your be impressed with the colours and the sharpness.

Although its not cheap, the body cost neraly £2400 but included the 1gb microdrive and rechargeable battery pack, I dont think there is anything to touch it without spending too much money. Nuts

I think I have an image I can send you on this Pc so you can get an idea, they do appear on a.n other site but we dont mention things like that do we? Innocent

Regards

Paul
