Excerpt: The FujiFilm FinePix S8400W combines a powerful lens and many of the features you want in a bridge camera . This long battery life bridge camera has a super macro mode that allows you to get extra close to your subjects. There are plenty of extra features such as panorama and miniature, plus the ability to create 3D images, although the 3D function is only viable if you have a way to view those images.
Pros: The lens has the ability to capture macro images just 1cm from your subject.
Cons: The microphone is weak and the audio sounds weak on the camera during playback.
