The FUJIFILM FinePix S4500 Digital Camera is a point-and-shoot with DSLR tendencies. The most notable would be the 24-720mm (35mm equivalent) 30x optical zoom lens, which gives you the flexibility to shoot super-close-up macros or distant telephoto shoots without changing your position. Other features of this lens include the professional grade Super EBC coating that reduces ghosting and lens flare and the 42-step zoom control for smooth transitions.

Working with the lens would be the Dual Image Stabilization, which reduces motion and blur for clear, clean images. Additional DSLR tendencies include the electronic viewfinder and a large 3.0" LCD monitor. Of course, the S4500 also shoots 720 HD video, just like the big boys. And in a step towards convenience, the camera is powered simply by 4 AA batteries, which are easily found at most grocery stores, and in many other locations.

Leaning back towards its point-and-shoot core the S4500 comes equipped with a bevy of auto modes that take the guess and check method out of taking pictures. Just choose the mode that is appropriate for your situation and let the camera do the leg work! From Scene Recognition modes to Blink Detection to Tracking Auto Focus, the choices are both numerous and beneficial. Additional examples include date stamp function, instant zoom, and zoom bracketing.

When you're done shooting, the S4500 continues to support you in your quest for great images. The many post-production features on the camera help you to do things like tag files for upload to social media sites, once the camera is connected to your computer, or to automatically upload new images for sharing. There are also a number of playback functions - By Date, By Face, By Upload Mark - that work to make your life easier, once the shooting is complete.

    When i opened the box i instantly knew it was gonna be the perfect camera. It performs amazingly and can do 201X zoom (digital zoom). the pics are stunning and has flabberghasted my photography company. only two problems, when you look at pictures and want to go back to shooting you have to press the shutter to get back, and when you want to turn it on the lens cap must be off otherwise it ask's you to turn off the camera, remove lens cap and turn it back on, instead of you taking off the lens cap when it tells you to and you dont have to turn it off and on. bottom line i love this camera and will use it forever.

    This is a great snapshot camera for high light situations or flash inside. It offers manual setting options, but using them isn't intuitive. It's pretty much what it purports to be, a point and shoot with a fun built-in lens that'll do 30x and macro in good light.

      Comments about Fujifilm FinePix S4500 Digital Camera (Black):

      I am a dad looking for a good camera that was a step up from the standard Point&Shoot without costing an arm and a leg. The Fuji FinePix S4500 does not disappoint! Fully automatic, dozens of scene modes, but also with all the manual features for someone looking to get better with a camera.I showed this camera to a friend who is a professional photographer, and he was amazed that it cost under $ with all the features. Auto-redeye removal, smile & blink detection, 3-shot panoramic, and more.I haven't found any cons to the camera yet...

            I am very pleased with my camera! This FUJIFILM FinePix S4500 is remarkable in its ability to capture sharp, clean (not a lot of noise) images.
            There are features on it that I couldn't imagine ANY camera at ANY price could EVER have.
            It is a solid camera with great images and is easy to use. The best is the built is wide angle and huge zoom. No more camera bag and lugging those heavy lenses.

                I was a photography major. I use my camera for everything from taking pictures of my kids to pictures of nature and today was able to take a picture of the moon!

                I don't like to take an expensive camera to some of the places I go, but need the versatility of my "pro" dslr so I have been carrying the Fujipix instead. It is a great backup, the only problem is the slow "film" processing time. Sure, there are other small irritations, but it is a fine second camera!

                  Out of the box this camera has a nice look and feel about it. First pictures taken on auto setting were excellent. Zoom lens just about blew me away bringing far away subject up close. Other reviewers had negative comments about the location of the memory card (in battery compartment); but I download pictures and video with USB cable (comes with camera) so I almost never remove memory card. Video quality is better than I expected. Overall this camera is a lot of bang for the buck!

                  Comments about Fujifilm FinePix S4500 Digital Camera (Black):

                  I bought this for my better half as a birthday present. For them the camera is more than they will ever need. I saw some of the shots from this camera and walked away thinking I made a solid purchase. The over all built of the camera is nice, except for the lens barrel look like cheap plastic. I agree with other reviews that the screen on the back is of low quality, but pull those pix onto your computer or tablet and you will see a big difference. The photos are so much better! The other downfall is the electronic view finder; I looked through it and thought I could never use it. I think most people, like my better half, will be using the lcd screen for framing photos so that's not an issue. I did pick it up too shoot a few pix and felt the camera did a very good job in focus speed and ok in shutter lag. Its no DSLR! but look at the price and the amazing zoom range.
                  Well worth a serious look. I am happy with this purchase.

                        I use this camera in my work as an insurance agent and will print 1 to 10 photos per session. The Fine Pix software requires many clicks to print 3x5" prints. If faster Windows sw used the edges of the prints are cut off.

                        Camera works fine. Image quality is good. Lag acceptable. Performance very good when sunlight hits lens. Would not buy again.

                              This is an excellent camera for the money, keep in mind this is not a SLDR camera, but it takes great crisp pictures, has an amazing zoom and the macro/super macro works great. The camera has tons of features and functions, some of them are automatic other ones you can program and select them easily when you need it. what I like most about the camera (beside the great photos)is that you can use it as a point and shoot for a fast quick pic with automatic settings or you can fiddle and play around with the settings to get the picture you want. absolutly recomend to photo enthuisasts

                                  I've never owned a super zoom camera so, for the money, this seemed to be a great deal. It is! I have an older point and shoot camera but I wanted to step up before deciding on a DSLR. This has quite a few manual settings and I was able to get some pretty good shots of the full moon using a tripod and the timer. I'm just a novice but for me to be able to get clear shots at 30x being as unsteady of hand as I am, well, I'm sold! Love it.

                                      Comments about Fujifilm FinePix S4500 Digital Camera (Black):

                                      I've been looking for a digital bridge camera for a while and I did my research. I decided on the top of the line S4500 from Fuji due to its wealth of features and 30x zoom at an amazing price. Most of the review criticisms you'll see about this model are from people who haven't read the manual. Yes, you can point and shoot as soon as you pick it up, but if you really wish to master its many features and use it to its full potential, you'll have to study it--its many features and capabilities are dazzling. The panorama feature alone justifies the price of the whole camera--you'll see what I mean.Cons: I agree that the LCD screen is underpowered, but it provides an adequate image as a guide. Just remember that your 14MP picture will be much sharper when printed than what's on the screen.The lens cap is fine but it doesn't allow you to use any lens filters or hoods. You can buy an adaptor for this I understand, but it's not a big issue for me. I also agree that the camera is a little wanting in conditions of low light; not so much that it should discourage you.It's use of 4 AA batteries will not be a concern if you invest in some 4000mah rechargeables. Power consumption seems very reasonable on mine.Final word: I would highly recommend this camera to anyone at any skill level. It's smooth, very pleasant to use and works exactly as advertised.

                                        This is a great snapshot camera for high light situations or flash inside. It offers manual setting options, but using them isn't intuitive. It's pretty much what it purports to be, a point and shoot with a fun built-in lens that'll do 30x and macro in good light.

                                          I bought this for my in-laws. They are 80 and need an easy to use camera with a rear LCD display since they cannot look through a viewfinder any more. I tried the camera out just prior to giving to them for Christmas to be sure that it would not be too complicated for them. The zoom works well, and the auto programs work well enough that he can just point zoom and click. Picture quality is far better than expected for such a low price.
