Head-2-Head Review: Fujifilm FinePix S2000HD vs. Kodak EasyShare Z1015 IS
Performance SpeedBy Emily Raymond
Start to capture: Fuji
The Fuji S2000 dawdles along at 1.1 fps at its 10-megapixel resolution; it too only lasts three shots at this pedestrian pace. If you want more speed and don’t mind reduced resolution, the S2000 has a respectable 7 fps burst rate at 5 megapixels that lasts for 33 shots. There is also a 3-megapixel burst mode that shoots 13.5 fps, but the resolution will be so poor that these images will be hardly usable for anything but a blog.
If I have to pick one over the other, it’d be the Fujifilm. The S2000 has more options and the option for a faster burst rate – although with reduced resolution. It also has the edge in the playback mode; the LCD shows the first image taken in a burst series and then shows the others in a small corner of the screen in a video-like sequence. This way, you don’t have to scroll through 20 pictures of basketball action when you really want to view a picture of the post-game celebration.
