The S1500 is an update of, and bears a very close resemblance to, the FinePix S1000fd, launched at around this time last year. The S1500 has the same extremely compact SLR-style body, the same 10.0-megapixel 1/2.3-inch CCD sensor, the same 12x zoom f/2.8-5.0 lens (equivalent to 33-396mm) and the same 2.7-inch 230k monitor. The size and weight are identical and it still uses four AA batteries for power, housed inside a large and comfortable handgrip.

Fujifilm has updated their S1000fd from last year (2008), with the release of the new S1500. This new camera is almost identical to the S1000, with a few minor changes, like the addition of SR Auto (Scene Recognition Auto), Dual IS (sensor-shift + high ISO), and a slightly broader ISO range (up to 6400 @ 3M). Shared features include a FUJINON 12x f2.8 optical zoom lens, 10-megapixel image sensor, 2.7-inch LCD, 8 - 1/2000 sec. shutter speed range, AA power source, USB 2.0 (high-speed) connectivity, etc. Fuji has also removed the xD-Picture card compatibility on this model, sticking with strictly SD and SDHC type memory cards; kudos to Fuji for finally ditching that out dated memory format, it's about time.
