Super macro!






I've got about a million other things I should be doing, but my new camera was just delivered so I had to run outside and try it out in the last few rays of sun for the day. It's a Fuji finepix S1500, which is one of the point and shoots that is trying very hard to be like an SLR (but at a fraction of the cost - $160 on Amazon). I got this one because it's super macro mode got excellent reviews. All I did was put the batteries and card in and figured out how to set it to super macro. Very easy to use so far, and I'm quite happy with the results! These images were just cropped and had a few levels adjustments in Photoshop. Too bad the sun is down now, or I'd be outside taking pictures.

I have been thinking in a new camera too but the ones I saw were in the 400s. This camera looks awesome, thanks for the info!

WOW, that's a fantastic price the pics are fantastic!! I've been thinking about upgrading but as you say seems like $500+ is the range typically. This one is on my Christmas list!

Great choice, I have the fuji finepix s9600 or s9100 in the US.
The super macro mode is awesome! Got mine from Amazon too a couple of years ago.
