Summary: As a professional photographer I have learnt the hard way that a missed picture has a big impact on your income and reputation. I am now retired, during my career I have used large roll film cameras and every brand of professional 35mm SLR you can think of, and today I still have 3 Nikon slr Bodies and 15 lens that I must do something about selling sometime. However, I decided 2 years ago to leave the Nikons at home and brought a Fuji Finepix x-s1 Bridge camera.
... could write for ages why this camera is so good, the zoom is fantastic
23 October 2014
Summary: I could write for ages why this camera is so good, the zoom is fantastic, the quality of the camera is excellent, its durable and well made but its not too bulky, it fits in your bag or the GEM large camera case perfectly. Camera has a good weight to it, so its not heavy on your neck.
Summary: Excellent camera, does what it says on the tin. Very well built, nice to hold and simple to use. Any 20-1200mm lens (35mm equiv.) is not going to be perfect, but I have tried it out across the full range and its good enough for the family/amateur, a single camera for the beach, walking in the hills or a day at the zoo – this is it.
Summary: A very good camera in its class.Copes well in difficult conditions. I am very satisfied with it. Would be good if there was a book on how to make the best use of its features. The lens quality and handling exceeded my expectations.
