'Looking at the sharpness of the shots the Finepix S1800 does well for a camera with a wide angle lens, especially when the lens is zoomed out. '
'Shutter-lag is a bit disappointing at about 0.1 second when pre-focused and 0.5 seconds including focusing time.'
'Image quality not up to par with competition; Weak flash; Poor HD video results; Excessive noise above ISO 400 makes the higher options almost useless; Tiny EVF eye piece; LCD is reflective; Sporadic white balance results when using Auto setting; Lack of Aperture value control in the specified A position on the mode dial makes it difficult to control DOF (either wide open or closed down, nothing in between). '
'The Fuji S1800 will be available in February 2010 at a retail price of $229.95.'
'The S1500 isn't quite identical to last year's model though, because it has one very important feature that its predecessor lacked; the sensor-shift image stabilisation system previously seen on the FinePix S2000HD. '
'There is a lot to like about this camera and I think it offers fair value for money. '
'At full resolution, the Fuji S1500's shooting speed is a rather more pedestrian 1.4 frames per second. '
