The FinePix S6500fd features innovative face-detection technology, designed to locate faces in the frame (up to ten faces) for auto focus, metering and subject tracking. Other features include a 6.1-megapixel CCD, wide-angle 10.7x optical zoom lens, xD card slot, and a 2.5-inch LCD display. Here’s the verdict:
The S6500fd is a very good camera for the price, with great handling, huge creative versatility and superior picture quality, but it suffers by comparison to the higher spec and similarly priced S9500 which is still available. The face-recognition technology is impressive, but really not all that useful. Will its outstanding high-ISO performance be enough to sell it?
