The FUJIFILM FinePix S4200 Digital Camera bridges the gap between the point-and-shoot and DSLR realms in a number of ways. It's compact, yet features a useful hand grip. It boasts a 24x optical zoom lens, an electronic viewfinder, and a 3.0" LCD, among other great attributes - including 1280 x 720 high definition video capture. At the same time, the S4200 keeps things simple in small ways, such as AA alkaline battery power and a super-fast start-up time of 1.8 seconds.

The Fujinon 24x optical zoom, 24-576mm wide angle zoom lens gives you the flexibility to shoot close-up or super telephoto, capturing distant subjects with ease. The lenses' Super EBC coating - the same process used for Fujinon broadcasting video lenses and large format pro cameras - reduces ghosting and lens flare, for clean, crisp images. The aforementioned 24x zoom also utilizes a 42-step electronic powered zoom control for smooth transitions. Additionally, in macro, the lens can capture subjects as close as 2cm (0.7").

Of course the S4200 also packs in all the great simplicity of a point-and-shoot with its many auto modes and functions. Six Scene SR AUTO modes - including Portrait, Landscape, Night, and then some - along with a bevy of other options, take the guesswork out of shooting, giving you great images each time you shoot. Another example of a great function of the S4200 is the Natural Light and With Flash function, a mode that takes both a natural light image and one with flash, as the name so aptly suggests. When you can't decide which way to go, shoot both. Save both images or only keep the one you like best. Either way, you'll get to see the image both ways and decide for yourself.

When you're finished shooting - whether you captured stills or videos - FUJIFILM makes it easy to share your memories. There's the option to tag files in-camera for instant social media sharing upon connection to a computer, and there's the MyFinePix Studio which automatically searches for new images to upload when you connect the camera to your computer as well. Additionally post-production functions include Photobook Assist and a number of useful playback options like Micro Thumbnail View, slideshow, and red-eye removal.

    I've always been a snapshot artist, using cheap equipment and even cell phones to get some pretty good shots over the years. This camera was the result of a long search, for a unit built like a real camera with some weight to it for steadiness, a tripod fitting (essential) and a good zoom. After checking several major manufacturers, the S4200 seemed perfect for me. Now that I've had it a month or so, I couldn't be more pleased. The zoom is astonishing, and all the features I've learned so far are really great. Like all digital technology it has more gizmos than I'll ever use, but it has a point-and-shoot capability that made it real easy to pick up and start using right away. Great field depth, sharp colors, easy controls, I think they made this just for me.

    I saw a lot of reviews that suggested good image quality with this camera, but looking at the images it makes, I don't buy it. Maybe this is the extent of the quality you get for this price (and it's a good price), but count me disappointed.

      Comments about Fujifilm FinePix S4200 Digital Camera (Black):

      I am not very knowledgeable about photography, so I enlisted the help of a friend who is an amateur photographer. He helped me select this camera based on my price range, level of experience (or lack of it), the features, ability to take more advanced images as I learn, and something he noted that many people do not consider - the actual feel of the camera in my hands. I wanted something that had a more subtantial feel to it than some of the pocket models. I have used this camera three times now, and I am very pleased with the look, feel, and the quality of digital images for its price.

            I love how light and small this camera is, I'm very pleased with the pictures since I'm not a professional and take them only for leisure. I got it because I read on the reviews how good it took pictures under low light, I haven't figured out how good the low light pictures could get, but so far they're grainy when I take them in 'full auto' may be if I use a tripod and the 'night' setting they'll be better. It has a fairly fast shutter, the flash doesn't come out automatically which I like not to hace to deal with the auto-flash. It's all on each person's preference.

                I purchased this camera for our school yearbook. I am very impressed with the picture quality and what a great price!
                If I could change one thing it would be the sound the camera makes when taking a picture. No sound would be the best thing so as not to draw attention to someone taking a picture.
                Easy to use!

                    I was recommended to buy this camera for class and it was the first camera with manual functions that I've bought and so far its been a dream. I like how simple it is to navigate the settings. I recommend this to student or beginner.

                    I love this camera! I got it as a gift for my birthday. I am 11, and I can easily figure out how to use the camera; it's very easy to operate. The zoom is amazing and the quality of the pictures and videos are great! I just can't figure out how to attach the lens cap to the camera so I don't lose the lens cap while taking pictures. The camera bag is very protective and if you get rechargeable batteries, they charge in about four hours and they last a while. The camera takes great motion shots as well. The only negative thing I have to say about this camera is that I think that it should be able to take pictures faster. But all the modes work really well and once again, I love the camera! There is a view-finder but I can't figure out how to use that either.

                      We needed a simple camera for our Daughter to use in a Digital class. She wanted it to be simple to use but not look "simple" in design. The FinePix S4200 was just the thing. It has a nice look to it and gives the appearance of being a "pro" camera with out all the confusion of having to learn about f-stops and focal lengths. She is able to take nice digital images for the class projects and still look "cool" doing it. Most of the class structure is playing with the images after they are taken so getting them easily was her main concern. We are happy with the image quality and would recommend this product for starter digital photographers. We have several Fuji Cameras and Love all of them.

                      I use this camera mostly for my internship and some shots of friends and family. The image quality is good especially for the price of the camera which was a major incentive when I was picking the camera and the manual options are good for getting more acquainted with customization that you wouldn't typically get in a point and shoot. That said the auto focus isn't always as great as I would want it to be and I've had trouble with the flash already. it's definitely a good camera and it meets all of my needs but for a little more reliability something more expensive might be a better choice.

                        I saw a lot of reviews that suggested good image quality with this camera, but looking at the images it makes, I don't buy it. Maybe this is the extent of the quality you get for this price (and it's a good price), but count me disappointed.

                          I use to use this camera at my job and I like how it looked and felt, the screen was large and it gave you that professional feeling without actually having to buy all the equipment and spend all the money, great macro and super macro and the multitude of settings is crazy. Only problem was that the one I bought had a white line down the LCD screen, it was small, but still there and very noticeable.

                              What an easy camera to use, bought it to take pictures of my daughters college she is attending, along with a family gathering. Great picture quality, can't wait to use it on vacation!

                                I use this camera for all shooting situations. Portrait, landscape and video. The image stabilization system works fine, even at the extreme telephoto lengths.

                                  Not only does this Camera do everything that I need and more, but I paid less for the Camera, Bag, and 8 GB SD Card than I would have paid at every retailer near me. Delivery was fast, accurate and shipped with care. Would definately recommend B&H to friends.
