Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd review
Anumber of camera manufacturers have dropped their Mega zoom camera models to make room for the entry level digital SLR cameras. On the one hand that is very understandable since the prices of both models are almost alike, but on the other hand; a Megazoom camera is an entirely different concept than a system camera such as the DSLR. Fujifilm however has not much of a choice in this because they donít have the entry level SLR camera in their assortment which leaves sufficient room to fill the gap to the S5 Pro DSLR with a Megazoom camera like the Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd.
Fujifilm S8000fd Megazoom camera
The Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd is currently Fujifilmís Megazoom top model that has to compete directly with cameras like the Olympus SP-560 UZ and the Panasonic Lumix FZ18. Fujifilm have waited a long time before applying an optical image stabilizer, the CCD-shift system in this case. And although the need for such a stabilizer was obvious before but Fujifilm never applied it, there was no escaping it any longer for the fuji FinePix S8000fd. A camera with an 18x optical zoom is impossible to handle without an optical image stabilizer system.
