Fujifilm FinePix SL1000

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: The Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 puts 50x zoom power into a compact SLR-style camera, but it's not the best we've tested at high ISOs.
  • Pros: Sharp lens. Snappy performance. Impressive 50x zoom range. Excellent image stabilization. Raw shooting support. EVF. Hinged rear display. Comfortable handgrip. 10fps burst shooting. Hot shoe. 1080p60 video.
  • Cons: Raw mode disables continuous drive mode. Limited shots per burst. Not the best at high ISOs. Some commonly used settings only accessible via the menu.

  • Conclusion: But it feels like while Fuji poured so much money and energy into getting the camera's advanced features up to speed, it overlooked some of the elements that make a good user experience.

  • Summary: You'll save both space and an awful lot of money with the Fujifilm FinePix SL1000's 50x captive zoom lens. Image quality could be better, but with a fairly healthy selection of manual controls -- plus raw image shooting -- it's a good choice for the more ambitious novice looking to hone their skills on a budget.
  • Cons: Over-sensitive proximity sensor on eyepiece; Limited aperture settings; Noise at middling sensitivities.

Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 Review

  • Summary: We don’t see any reason to recommend the FinePix SL1000. If someone gifts it to you, regret that you didn’t get the Canon PowerShot SX50 HS, which is a stellar performer that you can buy for the same price. The FinePix SL1000 absolutely isn’t worth Rs 29,999 considering its dismal performance and frustrating-to-use interface.

  • Conclusion: Detail is the sword by which this camera lives and dies. On paper the Fuji SL1000 is brilliant - so much so you might even question why you'd need an DSLR, if you're considering this as a backup. Both still image and video quality are fantastic. The 50x zoom is supreme. And the ability to shoot in raw format gives you more control over your images. This is a camera with a lot of manual controls that a beginner can grow with as you gain confidence.

Review: Fujifilm FinePix SL1000

Techtree
29 May 2013
  • Excerpt: The new breed of bridge cameras aim to give the consumer a D-SLR-like feel, but without having to spend as much. Also, these cameras don't have interchangeable lenses, so it is less of a hassle. That in mind, Fujifilm has the FinePix SL1000. Its main USP is a powerful 50x optical zoom. The 16 mp camera also offers RAW format support, which gives "pure" details, as compared to JPEGs riddled with compression losses. Let's see if this camera can live up to expectations.
  • Pros: Powerful 50x optical zoom; Captures in RAW; Good low-light photos; Supports 1080p capture; Pull-out LCD; EVF.
  • Cons: Soft focus; Chromatic aberration; Bulky; Noisy zoom motor in movie recording; No GPS; Expensive.

  • Excerpt: Around a month ago, we published our review of the Fujifilm FinePix SL240 which we found to be an interesting camera because of the features it has for the price. The brand new SL1000 also has interesting features, but has a £200 price increase on its little brother. What do you get for the extra £200? Well, for a start, externally there's the flip out LCD screen. The articulation isn't fully manoeuvrable, it won't twist from side to side.
