Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 superzoom pictures and hands-on - Pocket-lint

 

You'd be forgiven for thinking that the Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 was a DSLR, as it's certainly styled to look a lot like one. The SL1000 superzoom packs

Fuji SL1000 review

 

50x zoom, raw capture and advanced features

50x zoom ; Fast aperture ; JPEG + raw shooting ; Great image quality

Tricky on/off slider ; EVF eye sensor is too sensitive ; JPEG + raw mode processing is a little slow

An impressive spec list, but it's hard to get good results from the exceptionally long telephoto lens

Fujifilm FinePix SL1000

 

The Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 puts 50x zoom power into a compact SLR-style camera, but it's not the best we've tested at high ISOs.

The SL1000 is no slouch when it comes to speed. It starts and shoots in just 1.6 seconds and manages a short 0.15-second shutter lag. It’s capable of burst shooting at 10, 5, or 3 frames per second, but each of those settings is limited to JPG capture...

Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 Review

 

and Sony CyberShot HX300. The biggest advantage the Fujifilm has is the price, it is cheaper than both the other models with 50x zoom and also packs other features such as RAW shooting, a tilting screen and EVF. It is available to purchase for £299.99.

Feature packed, Large optical zoom lens, Tilting screen, Full manual controls and RAW shooting, Decent electronic viewfinder, Good battery life, Solid SLR style body, Good image quality, Very good value for money

Images are noisy from ISO 1600 upwards, Purple fringing is common, No RAW continuous shooting

Fujifilm FinePix SL1000

 

The Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 puts 50x zoom power into a compact SLR-style camera, but it's not the best we've tested at high ISOs.

Sharp lens. Snappy performance. Impressive 50x zoom range. Excellent image stabilization. Raw shooting support. EVF. Hinged rear display. Comfortable handgrip. 10fps burst shooting. Hot shoe. 1080p60 video.

Raw mode disables continuous drive mode. Limited shots per burst. Not the best at high ISOs. Some commonly used settings only accessible via the menu.

Some shooting controls are directly accessible via buttons, but there are some common adjustments that will require a menu dive to adjust. The metering pattern requires you to jump into the menu to make adjustments, as do the autofocus settings. Raw...

Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 Preview

 

At CES 2013, Fujifilm announced a new "bridge camera", designed for those who need more than a simple point-and-shoot, but maybe aren't quite ready to purchase a full dSLR. Fuji mates a 16MP BSI-CMOS image sensor to a F2.9-5.6, 50x optical zoom lens...

Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 Review

 

The first to feature a 50x superzoom lens was the Canon PowerShot SX50 HS—equivalent to those long-barreled super telephoto lenses used in sports photography. Today we have the Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 that features equally capable optics. Check out...

We don’t see any reason to recommend the FinePix SL1000. If someone gifts it to you, regret that you didn’t get the Canon PowerShot SX50 HS, which is a stellar performer that you can buy for the same price. The FinePix SL1000 absolutely isn’t worth Rs...

Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 Review

 

The FinePix SL1000 is a very interesting bridge camera from Fujifilm that not only sports a 16 megapixel resolution, but also has a 3-inch tilting screen, 920K dot EVF, Full HD video, RAW format support and a teeth-aching 50x optical zoom. Other...

Used in the right circumstances, the Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 is a lovely camera to work with. The 50x optical zoom has to be seen to be believed, it really is quite extraordinary. But the great thing about the zoom is that Fujifilm haven't simply been...
