Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd

 

Fuji's long-awaited super-zoom flagship is here at last. Can it live up to the hype?

The Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd is a very sophisticated and immensely versatile camera for all types of photography, with enough features to make up for a slight lack in total image quality. It has superb handling, very good performance and excellent...

Fuji FinePix s8000fd

 

When most folks hear "point-and-shoot digital camera," they envision a pocketable package with a low-magnification zoom--something in the 3x to 5x range. But there's a class of pop-and-cop snappers that have more in common with digital SLRs than they...

Fujifilm Finepix S8000 FD

 

The S8000 fd from Fuji is loaded with advanced photo technologies, including an 18x wide angle optical zoom, an 8-megapixel Super CCD HR sensor and an electronic viewfinder, so you can capture everything in detail! This high-power zoom is coupled with...

Divide its price by its zoom and this Finepix is the cheapest digital camera in the world. But divide talent by ego and even Paris Hilton looks like a steal. A smart choice when flexibility is more important than the best possible picture quality....

Why should you pick this new contender?

What's not to like about a DSLR-like compact camera with an 18x zoom lens and effective image stabilisation system.

Fuji Finepix S8000fd

 

The Fuji Finepix S8000 is a super zoom camera with a long 18x optical zoom lens. Picture quality is very good. It is also easy to use and I like the design as well. The camera has manual exposure controls and is available at a very reasonable price.

Purple fringing

I was impressed by the Fuji Finepix S8000. Picture quality was very good indeed and the 18x optical zoom is going to prove attractive to many people. It is also quite easy to use and is well worth a closer look.

Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd Review

 

The new sensor-shift image stabilizer allows hand holding shots at the long focal lengths and slower shutter speeds. The wide-angle makes this a great camera for landscape and large group shots.

Like the other 18x zoom / 8MP cameras on the market the FinePix S8000fd is a camera that tries to be all things to all men, and in some respects it succeeds, in others it shows the limitations of current compact camera technology in a very stark manner.

Fujifilm Finepix S8000fd Review

 

Having recently taken its long zoom cameras into ever more DSLR-like territory, Fuji's S8000fd is something of a departure. The S8000fd places a smaller sensor behind a much longer-range zoom lens in a less SLR-like body. Going head to head with the...

Fuji FinePix S8000fd

 

If you don't want to spring for a digital SLR, Fujifilm's S8000fd is a well-priced one-lens-fits-all alternative with a massive zoom along with advanced features and manual controls.

Affordable. Sturdy design. Excellent 18X zoom lens. Effective image stabilization. Can capture movies.

Dual image stabilization creates some image noise. Some shutter lag. No RAW file support.
