Fujifilm prosumer camera with 18x zoom

Mechanical image stablization

| Cameras News | Posted: Jul 26, 2007 9:00 am

Fujifilm has announced its new prosumer camera, the S8000fd which features no less than 18x zoom. To be able to take advantage of the cameras amazing zoom abilities, Fujifilm has added a mechanical CCD-shift image stabilizer. The CCD captures pictures at 8 Megapixels and it shoots video at VGA resolution at 30fps.

 

It can also shoot a continuous burst of 15 shots per second at 2 Megapixel resolution. Furthermore it has a 2.5-inch LCD screen with a 230,000 pixel resolution and an electronic viewfinder. With Fujifilms move to support the SD memory card format, the S8000fd accepts xD, SD and SDHC memory cards and the camera has 58MB of built in memory.

 

 

It also has an intelligent auto flash that should help prevent washed out pictures. For those that know what they're doing, it also features full manual control. It operates of four AA batteries, just like many other Fujifilm cameras, which means you don't have to worry about running out of juice if you're away from your charger, as a set of alkalines will do just fine.

 

The S8000fd is expected to be available in September with a retail price for around US$400 which seems quite reasonable for what you get.
