Camera back in action

I arrived back home last Friday to find that my camera had arrived back from Fuji. I was so pleased that it had been returned. I opened the box to find inside another box – the distribution packaging for a more modern model. I anticipated that Fuji would have put may repaired camera into the nearest equivalent package to give it adequate protection whilst in transit. On opening the inner package I could see that they had supplied a CD with the camera software and a set of connecting cables. Then I took the camera out of the box to discover that a brand new replacement model had been supplied. So I am now the proud owner of a FinePix S9500. I am really please to be back in action again – but its a bit like learning a new language as the camera has a number of functions that my old camera did not have!

So I am now looking forward to many happy hours getting to know the new camera! Here is an example photo which I too on Saturday – I am pleased with initial results but I do think that I need to obtain a skylight filter which I will do at the earliest opportunity.

This photo of a bird taking advantage of our garden water feature to have a refreshing bath! I had the sense that he was looking right at me – not camera shy at all!


I do want to take this opportunity to acknowledge the excellent service I feel that I have received from FujiFilm on this occasion. I really feel that the repair service has been excellent and I now have a brand new camera with an accompanying 1 year warranty.

Back to work again

Well this has been quite a week. After 8 days leave which was very refreshing I find my self playing catch up for the last 5 days. It is remarkable how much jobs can stack up when you take a well earned break. In any case, and due to the workload this week, I have not had much of a chance to do any blogging but I hope to get in to a more regular routine now.

One very disappointing event of the holiday period was the failure of my camera. It was working one day and the next it was broken. I have to confess that this was a source of great disappointment for me as I have been enjoying using if a lot over the last year. In any case, the good news that after a visit to the Fuji repair center it arrived back home yesterday – so I will be trying to find something worth photographing next week.

I should say for the benefit of Fuji cameras (mine is a FinePIX PRO20) that the repair service which is accessible the Fuji we site seems to offer a very good value deal. At considerable less cost that working through a high street store. My camera was sent of at my cost by Royal Mail special delivery about 10 days ago and was delivered back to me with a brand new 1 year warranty. I have been able to trak its progress through the repair progress using the website tracking system – click here for more details if you are interested.
