what!! just like what we can easily do in Photoshop?

then they shouldn't be advertising it as 6 megapixel and name it F601 giving the impression its 6 megapixel


complaint to CASE :)

Oh hmm, maybe you can read past dc reviews on fuji 6800, 6900 cams to get an idea of their interpolation technology.

btw, Cathay Photo quoted $930 (GST excluded) for the camera with 128MB SM. Think it's a very good price for such a camera.

looks like a good buy, but from the specs, ISO200 seem to be the lowest, and max onli 3secs shutter speed,

There's ISO 160. Anyway, because of the design, relatively noise-free images are produced even for ISO 400 (this is from my experience with the first in the series, 4700Z).

It's interesting that the older 6800 is still priced higher than the F601Z ;p

I read somewhere that their lowest ISO is still noiser than others...so I didn't get it.

Otherwise, their diamaond shape CCD + software processing is a very good step btw convectional 1 colour/pixel CCDs and the feveron X3. :D

Well, I was shopping with my fren in Sim Lim and couldn't resist the temptation to buy it. For some reasons, fuji's site says that it can only take 27s of 640x320 movies but i took a 1 min clip of my rabbit running ard and it still looks as if it can go on to abt 200+ sec. However the avi is huge though at 36 mb.

Think only this guy, and the sanyo series can do 640x480 unlimited movies currently, almost as good as having a DV. Anywhere to put the photos online? I had a hard time chasing my rabbit around and want to show him off to my friends. :D

AP is really selling cheap $900 with GST and 128SM

saw a guy who brought it at the exhib, $1099, wonder he never knew of a place called SLS?

those tripod and bag are definately not worth $199
