Thread: 2nd hand Fujipix S1 worth buying @$499?

  1. #1

    Default 2nd hand Fujipix S1 worth buying @$499?

    Not familiar with market prices and digital SLR. Is $499 too expensive for an old model like the S1?

    thanks in advance!

    Thanks for the replies guys. I'm actually asking for a friend who is looking for an SLR. If he is not interested in the S1, I'll post the sale link here. Hope you understand.

    S1Pro at $499 is very value for money.

    Didn't realise demand would be so hot for the camera. Now you guys are making me tempted to get it for myself.

    Generally how much does a basic lens cost for such an SLR?

    IMO, the s1 and s2, by far, are reputed to give the best 'out-of-cam' pics which require little or no PS (esp in the hands of pros. heehee... ask or see azure's or clown's pics!). dunno abt the s3 becos i haven't seen it in action.

    wats attractive for me is the excellent skin tone reproduction from the cams. others like the rich colours for landscapes (velvia tones, anyone??). dats why this cam is 'red hot', so to speak. not to mention the very attractive pricing!

    basic lens? hmm... a nikon 50mm/f1.8 (used) will set u back mebbe $120?

    The 18-70mm AFS-G,IF,ED,SWM is also available from the Buy&Sell forum for about $300 onwards. Good lens for 1.5 crop factor. Same viewing angle as 28-105mm.
