Fujifilm FinePix S1 – Review

29 June 2014
  • Summary: Fujifilm FinePix S1 is a superzoom the characteristics of extremes. On the one hand, the dimensions are plentiful. The price is not particularly low, and the image quality suffers in comparison to that of cameras with a sensor diagonal. On the other hand, this machine offers an incredible zoom range from 24mm to 1200mm and can rely on a camera body resistant to weathering, which enables carefree shooting in even the most adventurous, a gift very rare in this segment.

Fujifilm FinePix S1 lets you worry about the shot, not weather conditions

23 April 2014
  • Summary: The only weather-resistant 50x megazoom camera around, the Fujifilm FinePix S1 is a fast, flexible camera that comes up a little short in low-light photo quality.
  • Pros: The Fujifilm FinePix S1 is a quick-shooting bridge camera with a nice 50x zoom lens, built-in Wi-Fi, and excellent build quality that's weather resistant. It has lots of shooting options and extras like a hot shoe, vari-angle LCD and EVF, raw capture, and manual controls.
  • Cons: Noisy, soft photos in low-light conditions/indoors, which might be hard to reconcile given its price. Mobile app could use some love.

Fujifilm FinePix S1 review

Macworld UK
10 April 2014
  • Excerpt: One notable way in which dedicated digital cameras can put clear water between themselves and smartphones is to slap a whopping zoom lens on the front. Fuji’ s new 16 megapixel 1/2.3-inch sensor incorporating S1 is one such example. It boasts a huge image stabilised 50x optical zoom, enabling a focal range the equivalent of a wide angle 24-1200mm on an old 35mm film camera.
  • Pros: Lovely tactile rubber coating to the body aids grip and adds protection, 50x optical zoom offers a wealth of framing possibilities at our fingertips, entire optical zoom range can be used during Full HD video recording, swivel and tilt LCD screen, both Raw and JPEG capture
  • Cons: Small-ish sensor at the heart of the S1 is no larger than that found in a plain point-and-shoot pocket snapper, despite all the outward bells and whistles

FinePix S1

Das Digitalkamera-Magazin
16 June 2014
  • Conclusion: Mit einer hervorragenden Ausstattung glänzt die FujiFilm FinePix S1 in der Praxis . Ob sie auch im Labor zu überzeugen weiß, verraten wir Ihnen jetzt. Ein 15,9 Megapixel auflösendes 1/2,3 Zoll großes CMOS-Modell ist bei der FujiFilm FinePix S1 (Datenblatt) für die Bildaufnahme zuständig. Damit lassen sich neben JPEG- auch RAW-Bilder speichern (RAF-Format).
  • Pros: Klassenübliche Bildqualität bei ausreichend Licht, Das Kameragehäuse ist gegen Staub und Spritzwasser abgedichtet, Extrem großer Brennweitenbereich (50-fach-Zoom, 24 bis 1.200mm nach KB), Mit 24mm sehr großer Weitwinkelbereich, Abbildungsleistung des Objektives für diesen Brennweitenbereich ordentlich, Exzellenter optischer Bildstabilisator (bei Foto und Video), Die Digitalkamera liegt sehr gut in der Hand, Hohe Serienbildrate: 10,1 Bilder pro Sekunde für neun Bilder ...
  • Cons: Die Bildqualität fällt bei schlechteren Lichtverhältnis dürftig aus, Der elektronische Sucher ist für Brillenträger nicht optimal geeignet, Keine Serienbildaufnahme im RAW-Format, Schlechte Tonqualität des integrierten Mikrofons, zudem lässt sich kein Externes anschließen

  • Excerpt: Fazit: Die Fujifilm FinePix S1 zeigt sich im Test als erste Bridge-Kamera mit Spritzwasserschutz. Die umfangreiche Ausstattung und das insgesamt flotte Tempo gefallen, doch die Bildqualität enttäuscht mit starkem Rauschen und geringer Detailtreue.
  • Pros: Viel Zoom, Scharfer Sucher, Schwenkdisplay, Flott Serienaufnahme, Lange Akkulaufzeit
  • Cons: Autofokus nur im Weitwinkel schnell, Starkes Bildrauschen, Detailverlust ab ISO 800
