Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd review

CES report

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.

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.

Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd Megazoom review
The Fujifilm S8000fd is an advanced Megazoom camera trying to reach the advanced photographer. Well, the specifications look good; the camera offers numerous applications and setting possibilities to perform all-round photography. The zoom range of 27 - 486mm offers the landscape photographer the perfect focal length to create a wide effect. I have had the Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd in the office for a while and by means of an extensive practice test I have come to a conclusion about this camera that can be read in the following Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd review.
