Fuji Finepix S2800HD
8 August 2014
Conclusion: The Fuji Finepix S2800HD offers plenty of zoom at a reasonable price. This is not really a camera for the most challenging photos, but should do a good enough job if you plan to use it as a snapshot camera that also gives you that bit of extra zoom. If really good picture quality is important to you then I would suggest looking elsewhere.
Conclusion: OK, so whilst you cannot change the lens on the front of the S2800HD, like you can with a DSLR or compact system camera, like all superzooms the pitch here is that with this broad a focal range on offer, why would you want to anyway? For those who are more inclined to point and shoot anyway and hope to achieve reasonable results with the minimum of fuss, the Fujifilm will prove to be an able tool.
Pros: Have we mentioned the price? Also, the broader than average zoom range, a decent sized and finger moulded handgrip, broad ISO range, better-than-average low light performance for its class
Cons: Camera sluggish to automatically regain focus if using zoom during video recording, built-in microphone picks up mechanical buzz of any lens adjustments when filming, softening of edge detail and distortion visible when shooting at extreme (28mm equiv.) wideangle setting
