Fujifilm S2800HD review
4 October 2011
Excerpt: Super zoom cameras boasting an optical zoom with a 15x reach or more are usually prohibitively bulky, but that’s not the case with the Fujifilm FinePix S2800HD. Claiming to be the world’s smallest camera to offer an 18x reach, it’s styled to resemble a miniature digital SLR. Unlike a DSLR, though, the lens on the front of the 14-megapixel snapper cannot be changed.
Excerpt: We’ve had manufacturers such as Panasonic with its pioneering incorporation of ever-larger zooms into increasingly slim compact camera bodies that will fit in your pocket. At the other end of the spectrum there are the big zoom models that resemble DSLRs in nearly all respects – apart from the fact that the lens on the front cannot be swapped.
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
