The Fujifilm FinePix S8200 Digital Camera features a 16 megapixel 1/2.3" Back-Side-Illuminated CMOS sensor that is able to produce high quality imagery with notable low-light sensitivity. High speed performance is afforded throughout the system, enabling fast continuous shooting up to 10 full resolution frames per second and an auto focusing speed of 0.3 second. Full HD 1080i video capabilities are also supported at a frame rate of 60fps.

An incredibly long 40x optical zoom lens is also built into the S8200's design, giving a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-960mm. This range can be effectively doubled through the use of Intelligent Digital Zoom, and a lens-shift image stabilization system benefits shooting at such magnifications by reducing the appearance of camera shake.

Both a rear 3.0" 460k-dot LCD monitor and 201k-dot electronic viewfinder are available for monitoring and image review. The LCD monitor provides a large, bright area ideal for scrolling through imagery while the electronic viewfinder provides eye-level viewing capabilities an additional point of contact between yourself and the camera to offer greater shooting stability.

Amongst other features and imaging modes available, SR AUTO (Automatic Scene Recognition) can automatically determine the scene type you are working in and choose from one of six pre-determined sets of exposure profiles to optimize your results. Six different Advanced Filters are also available to further enhance the look and feel of your photographs.

Fujinon 40x Optical Zoom Lens
A super-long 40x optical zoom lens is integrated into the FinePix S8200's design, giving a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-960mm. This lens has a maximum aperture of f/2.9-6.5 and utilizes lens-shift type optical image stabilization to counter the effects of camera shake that become more apparent when working with longer focal lengths and in Super Macro mode. Aspherical and ED lens elements are incorporated into the lens construction to reduce aberrations and color fringing throughout the zoom range. For even greater reach, Intelligent Digital Zoom is available and can effectively double the zoom magnification to 80x.
16MP BSI CMOS Sensor and Full HD 1080i Video
The 16 megapixel 1/2.3" backside-illuminated CMOS sensor is able to deliver high resolution imagery with tremendous quality and notable low-light performance. High speed shooting capabilities up to 10 full resolution frames per second are available as well as a fast 1.0 second startup time, 0.5 second shooting interval time, and a 0.3 second focusing time.

The sensor also lends itself to producing full HD videos up to 1920 x 1080i at 60fps in the H.264 format. Full 40x zoom, scene recognition mode, and still image capture capabilities are available during recording as well as the ability to record high speed movies up to 480fps. Video playback is possible on an HDTV directly from the camera through an HDMI connection.
3.0" LCD Monitor and Electronic Viewfinder
The S8200 is equipped with both a rear 3.0" 460k-dot LCD monitor and an eye-level electronic viewfinder for monitoring and reviewing imagery. The electronic viewfinder has a 201k-dot resolution and a built-in eye sensor to deactivate the larger LCD monitor during use. The EVF enables eye-level shooting, which provides an additional point of contact to better aid in steadying your camera while shooting.
Other Camera Features
  • SR AUTO can automatically apply one of six scene modes (Portrait, Landscape, Night, Macro, Night Portrait, or Backlit Portrait) to your image to optimize camera settings to best expose for the type of scenario you are photographing in.
  • The inclusion of a slide-lever zoom control, one-touch movie record button, and ergonomic camera grip give this camera an immense amount of efficiency through physical design.
  • Manual exposure modes (P/A/S/M) are available to give you more creative control over the exposure settings.
  • Scene Position modes are selectable modes that can be used to ensure the camera is correctly exposing for the type of subject matter you are photographing. Modes include: Portrait, Baby Mode, Smile & Shoot, Landscape, Sport, Night, Night (Tripod), Fireworks, Sunset, Snow, Beach, Party, Flower, and Text.
  • Six Advanced Filters are incorporated to further enhance the aesthetic quality of imagery, including: Pop Color, Toy Camera, Miniature, Partial Color (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Purple), Soft Focus, and Cross Screen.
  • Motion Panorama 360 allows you to record expansive views up to 360° wide in a seamless, sweeping manner.
  • Individual Shutter 3D captures two exposures of the same scene and saves them together in the MPO file format in order to produce an image that mimics a stereo image process.
  • Dynamic Range (HDR) uses multi frame technology to capture three consecutive images of the same scene (one over-exposed, one under-exposed, and one normally-exposed) and combines the three into a single image in order to garner more highlight and shadow detail than is possible with a single exposure.
  • Zoom bracketing mode records three sequential images to be taken at varying magnifications to provide you with different compositions of the same subject.
  • Natural Light & with Flash automatically records two images (one with flash, one without) for those instances where you can't decide the better way to photograph in darker situations.
  • Face Detection optimizes photographs of people by detecting and biasing exposure and focus settings on up to 10 faces present within the scene.
  • Built-in social networking allows you to pre-tag and label images and video in-camera prior to offloading the imagery to your computer. Once tagged and delegated to the social platform of your choice, the images will be automatically uploaded once you connect the camera to your computer.

            This is my 2nd Fujifilm camera, & this is better yet. The zoom is great and unparalleled at any price. I love the triple exposure compensation feature for nature photography. Navigating through the on-screen features takes practice; learning which features you typically are looking for.

                  Comments about FinePix S8200 Digital Camera (Black):

                  I use this camera as a go to point-and-shoot.
                  The 40x zoom is very good.
                  This is a modestly priced camera with an optical viewfinder! This is a feature that I find indispensible when shooting in bright sunlight.
                  The LCD display on the rear is really quite good in most settings.
                  The color is true to what I see with my eyes and the quality of the images is very good.
                  I like that this camera can use regular AA batteries so that I can eliminate carrying a charger.
                  The lens cap is tethered to the camera strap.

                  I don't like the feel of the battery cover. It is difficult to open and I am afraid that it will break off when I am closing it. It does not feel very strong.

                  Comments about FinePix S8200 Digital Camera (Black):

                  This S8200 is a giant step up from my old 10MP pocket camera. The flexibility allowed in different photo modes is not only easy to employ, the camera operator can choose how much automatic assistance he/she desires. Letting the camera enhance your pictures automatically will make taking shots care-free and you a better photographer.

                  It is easy to operate, switching between modes or dialing in the telephoto lens. BTW, the 40X telephoto lens is so powerful, I wouldn't waste money on the stronger models. The large LCD screen is crystal clear and augmented by the eye piece that is quite handy in bright situations.

                  The LCD also displays current camera settings and is quite intuitive. Instant setting explanations tell you what you've selected when you change modes which is reassuring. At 16MP the clarity of photos is astonishing. One particular shooting mode takes two shots at different settings and then averages them into one photo. I've found this amazingly helpful when taking pictures with sharply contrasting light levels.

                  While is won't fit in your pocket any more, the camera is light and ergonomic. The owners manual (on CD) is well-written and easy for a non professional photographer to uderstand and get the most out of this extremely versitile camera.

                  This camera is fast with a great 40x zoom. It feels so quality for $ .I have owned several Fuji cameras in the past ,all great, but this one exceeds all my expectations. My brothers have SLR cameras but they love this one. The panorama feature is so neat and improved . Much better than previous models--similar to Apple phone feature.Thanks to Fuji
