Fujifilm Finepix S2500HD

 

Fujifilm extend the optical zoom up to impressive levels, but can the S2500HD still take decent photos when pushed to the limit?

Fujifilm Finepix S2500HD Review

 

A budget-priced 12 megapixel bridge camera with high definition video recording capabilities and an 18x zoom lens.

Large zoom range; Relatively compact and lightweight; Good build quality; Good image quality at low sensitivities; Image stabilisation; Large LCD screen and electronic viewfinder

Lacklustre AF speed at maximum telephoto

Fujifilm Finepix S2500HD

 

Can this 18x optical zoom camera live up to it's specs?

Very well built, zoom active during filming

Images favour mid tones too heavily

Although there are a couple of issues with image quality the S2500HD still performs a lot better than can be expected of a superzoom model, and has some useful features besides.

The sensors in these cameras are considerably smaller than you will find in a DSLR or mirrorless interchangeable lens model. One of the advantages of a smaller sensor is that, compared to an SLR, you need a physically much smaller lens. As you can see...

Great optical zoom. Some really good pictures.

Some issues with the auto focus. Must read the manual again in case it's me!

Fujifilm FinePix S2500HD

 

Resolution, but only in good light, low ISO and without zoom. Adjustments. Battery duration. Viewfinder.

Disaster if low light and high ISO. Stabilizer ridiculous. Zoom 18x not useful because blur and noise. Colors too cold and not saturated. In conclusion, poor image quality, which is the most important thing in a photo.

Fujifilm FinePix S2500HD

 

Great LCD screen. Amazing zoom. Easy settings.

Needs VERY good batteries otherwise you'll be swapping often. Lens cap can be annoying when the camera is in use. Older models had a clip to attach it to the strap.
