Fuji S8200 review

 

A mid-priced shooter with a whole lot of reach

Feels great in the hand ; Awe-inspiring zoom ; Well thought-out buttons ; Great movie recording

Bit wobbly at distance ; Some long winded settings ; Difficult to select focus points ; Old EVF

While the Fuji S8200's reach is certainly incredible, we found it, ironically, performing best under close-up conditions. And while it has a host of new features, we can't honestly say that there is much that sets it apart from other cameras in the...

Fujifilm FinePix S8200

 

Good to hold, feels very solid. Excellent zoom lens, (40X) ideal for photographing wildlife, also good macro feature for close up photos. Colour is good, no fading at the edges. Plenty of features and settings, easy to use.

Maybe a bit bigger than I expected, but it is carrying the big zoom lens. Hand held at maximum zoom there can be a bit of camera shake - blame the big lens! Photos can be a bit hazy at max zoom - just ease off the zoom a bit, and crop to fit.

Fujifilm FinePix S8200

 

Most of the plus points of an SLR without the bulk and need to carry lots of lenses and adaptors. Switchable between back screen focusing or eye piece view finder Flexibility of using AA batteries in rechargeable or disposable type Good price for...

Difficult to get used to the panoramic mode of 'photo stitching' after using an earlier model. IMO the old system of aligning some dots to take a sequence of 2-3 shots was far easier.

Comfortable to hold and operate. Lots of USEFUL functions and settings, not just a plethora of settings!! Clear display and very intuitive

Uses 4x AA batteries, which adds considerable weight to the camera
