Fujifilm Finepix S8100fd


The Fujifilm Finepix S8100fd offers a massive 18x zoom in a fairly compact body. How does it fare in the field?

Fujifilm FinePix S8100fd digital camera


The S8100fd features an 18x optical zoom, falling squarely into the super zoom category. But will this cover all your digital photography needs? We get snapping to find out. At this price point the feel the dial quality could have been better and the F...

Plenty of features, more advanced shooting options, live histogram

Dial feels cheap, controls too widely spread around, colour a bit dull, no dedicated playback, no memory card supplied

At this price point the feel the dial quality could have been better and the F button is in a stupid place, but that’s not a deterrent to buying the camera. It is something of a hybrid, providing at one end some technical options and at the other,...

Fujifilm FinePix S8100fd review


The S8100fd's 10 megapixel sensor, 18x optical zoom and 2.5 inch screen compete directly with other cameras here, but at £185 it's cheaper than most. There's no shortage of photo options, including manual focus down to a 1cm macro.

Mid shot. Impressive on paper for the money, but limited by its performance.

Fuji Finepix S8100FD


The Fuji Finepix S8100fd is a super zoom digital camera with an 18x optical zoom lens. It has manual exposure controls plus other useful features such as image stabilisation, face detection and automatic red eye removal. It is a little cheaper than...

Close in macro focusing - feel of camera in the hand - value for money

Nothing stands out

The Finepix S8100 is a good all round super zoom camera. It does not have quite the same number of advanced features that some super zoom cameras offer. This is reflected in the price and you should find this camera a bit cheaper than the top of the...

Fujifilm Finepix S8100fd


The 10-megapixel Fujifilm Finepix S8100fd bridge camera adds to the specs of its predecessor, the S8000fd, with new burst shoot modes and a higher ISO.

The great thing about the S8100fd is that you can see things without having to actually go there. Perfect for the couch potato photographer.

Large zoom; Easy to use; Nice design on grip; Good macro; Low ISO has outstanding quality

Uninspiring features

FujiFilm FinePix S8100 : FujiFilm FinePix S8100fd


While many digital cameras can equal or even better the 10MP image size of this FinePix S8100 I cannot think of any that come up to the 18x optical zoom that it offers.

click to enlarge It is 10.5x9x7.5cm when off in your hand or hanging round your neck however when fully zoomed you need to add another 6cm to the 9cm width. It weights a tad under 500 grams. It comes with a 68 page Basic Manual and while this does...

Taking the latest camera out for a tour…

An all-round impressive superzoom, which is simple to hold as well as being easy use, even at full magnification

The Fujifilm FinePix S8100fd features a 10Mp sensor with a large 18x optical zoom lens that's equivalent to 27-486mm on a 35mm camera. The S8100's closest competitors are the Olympus SP-560 UZ and the Panasonic FZ18.
