Fujifilm FinePix S1600

 

Can the S1600 live up to high expectations?

A true performer that's not afraid to put in heavy-duty work for excellent results. Light and compact, this is a travel-friendly and affordable superzoom

FujiFilm's FinePix S1600 left a lot to be desired during our tests

Impressive 15x zoom with fast and smooth focus

Unimpressive image and video quality, manual settings are confusing

Despite the impressive 15x optical zoom, the Fujifilm FinePix S1600 failed to impress us. During our tests, images were plagued with noise and chromatic aberration, and we found the camera difficult to use.

Fujifilm FinePix S1600

 

The Fujifilm FinePix S1600 is a compact superzoom powered by AA batteries, let down by its average images.

Wide-angle lens ; Compact and lightweight despite using AA batteries ; Cheap for a superzoom

No dedicated record button, HDMI out or hotshoe ; Image degradation over ISO 200 ; Poor sound recording

The S1600 has a lot going for it in terms of features and just how compact it is, but it's let down by image quality at sensitivities over ISO 200. It does, however, offer a convenient alternative to the Lithium-ion battery superzooms that are out...

Fujifilm FinePix S1600 Review

 

The Fujifilm FinePix S1600 is a new super-zoom digital compact camera that looks and feels like a DSLR. Featuring a 15x zoom lens with a 28-420mm focal range, 12 megapixels and a 3 inch LCD screen, the Fujifilm S1600 offers full manual photographic...

Less than £150 / $200 is a complete steal for a super-zoom camera that offers virtually all the functionality of its big brother, the S2500HD. The only proviso is that more compact travel models, such as the Samsung WB650, now also offer a 15x zoom....

Fujifilm FinePix S1600 digital camera review

 

The FujiFilm FinePix S1600 is a 12.1-megapixel, 15x super-zoom digital camera. It has a few pros and a whole lot of cons. Put it this way: if the S1600 was your significant other and you were weighing up whether or not to end your relationship by...

Fujifilm FinePix S1600

 

A lot of shooting modes that take the hassle out of trying to work out best exposure settings.

Sadly lacking a threaded lens so unable to attach any filters.

Fujifilm FinePix S1600

 

i took this on holiday to monte carlo and it was great the panaramic shorts turned out great i liked the fact that the ladt part of the picture would become translucent so you could line up the next image so when stiched together they were seamless,...

night shoots are probably the only bad point, if the flash is on it somehow comes out dark (have not quite figured that out seeing as its a big burst of light!!!!!) and when you take the flash off the images come out bright and blured which is a real...
