    Talking All hail the Fuji S6500FD

    Hi everyone. If it weren't for this thread I probably would never have considered the S6500FD, and now I own one. Here's my tribute. May there be many more converts to this amazing camera.

    I'm having a hard time knowing what mode to use when shooting!

    For instance, today I was out in the garden with my cat and dog. Some shots have the sky in them, others just the subject and grass. Do I shoot in landscape mode? Portrait mode? Or do I have to be really clever and use one of the more manual modes? I think I resorted to using portrait mode for most of them, and when the sky featured in the shot I used landscape.

    The S6500FD is more of a manual camera than an automatic camera. But manual is not so difficult as it seems.

    Here's the method I use more often. Try Program mode (Mode P). This sets the exposure level automatically by adjusting the aperture and shutter speed automatically, which is the most complicated task. Press 'F' and select your ISO (Higher for low-light situations. Lower for a cleaner image). I find it gives me good results in most situations.

    Great. I never picked up on that yet. I never do have it on Auto, but I'm sure using Landcape and Portrait all the time isn't the answer. Thanks!

    Another question - you know the anti-blur setting on the scroll wheel? Is it the same as going into SP mode and selecting Sport? What's the difference between them?

    Antiblur Vs Sport

    I suspect both modes involve notching up the shutter speed and increasing the ISO, though I haven't really tested it out. In theory, both ought to produce very similiar results.

    You can do almost anything using 'P' mode actually. Changing your ISO will probably be the only change you will ever need to make for any situation. Use a higher ISO for shakier hands, low light imagery, sports/action/capture the moment shots, shots taken at the telephoto end of the lens. If your not sure of how difficult shots might turn out try taking it in RAW format, so you can make changes on your computer.

    New 6000fd owner

    I've been enjoying everyone's pictures. Just got my Fuji a few hours ago.
    Top Pict: ISO 100
    1/420 F 4.7
    Bottom Pict:
    ISO 3200
    1/52 F3.8 Histogram says this one's overexposed, but I'm still a nOOb.
    Both resized to meet forum limits.
