The FinePix S8200 digital bridge camera features something for everyone. Highly regarded for their high precision FUJINON lenses, simplicity and compact design, FUJIFILM all-in-one bridge cameras, like the S8200, are an excellent choice for any keen photographer looking for a step-up in their choice of equipment.
Long zoom lens and excellent blur reduction
The S8200 incorporates fast apertures of f/2.9 to f/6.5, plus powerful Lens shift OIS (Optical Image Stabilisation) for excellent blur reduction. Its long 40x zoom FUJINON lens is renowned for superb clarity. Featuring 17 elements in 12 groups, and combining aspherical and ED elements they help to reduce aberrations and promote a superior level of image quality. What's more this clever bridge camera features a Super Macro mode enabling you to get as close as 1cm from your subject, bringing great close-up shots to life.
Fast autofocus, quick response and high image quality
This bridge camera houses a 16 megapixel BSI-CMOS sensor, which captures excellent quality, low-noise shots at sensitivities as high as ISO 12800. With autofocus speeds of 0.3 seconds*, a start-up time of 1 second, a 0.5 second interval between shots and a continuous shooting speed of 10fps (max 10 frames @ full resolution), you'll never miss another shot. What's more, ultra-high–speed shooting of up to 60fps (max 60 frames, image size 1280×960) and up to 120fps (max 60 frames, image size 640×480), is also available enabling you to capture the action in slow-motion.
Full HD Video with stereo sound
Video recording is as easy as taking pictures, with a dedicated Video Button to start recording instantly. The high resolution, 1080i movie capture at 60fps with stereo sound and slow-motion capture at 480fps** is superb when played back on a HD-ready TV screen, and what's more, still photos can also be taken during video recording thanks to the ingenious, multi-tasking design. A number of advanced Video Editing features, such as Movie Trimming andMovie Join, allow you to edit in or out any part of the recorded footage!
Built-in Electronic Viewfinder
The FinePix S8200 features a built-in Electronic Viewfinder (EVF). Having an EVF makes framing subjects, checking focus, and checking white balance in bright daylight conditions much easier.
Along with the S8200's easy grip surfaces, it features a convenient secondary zoom control on the side of the lens barrel; this gives you the option of adjusting the zoom with your left hand while pressing the shutter button with your right hand. For hassle-free photography the user can choose from three zoom speeds, or use the Auto Return Zoom control to reach high-magnification focal points. Additionally the camera comes with a Mode Dial to make changing shooting modes very simple.
