  • 35mm Equivalent Focal Length: 24-1200mm
  • 3.0" 920k-Dot Tilting LCD Monitor
  • Continuous Shooting: 10fps

The Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 Digital Camera features a 16 megapixel 1/2.3" backside-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 0.2 second. Full HD 1080i video capabilities are also supported at a frame rate of 60fps.

An incredibly long 50x optical zoom lens is also built into the SL1000's design, giving a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-1200mm. This range can be effectively doubled through the use of Intelligent Digital Zoom, and an optical image stabilization system benefits shooting at such magnifications by reducing the appearance of camera shake.

Both a rear LCD monitor and electronic viewfinder are available for monitoring and image review, and both have a high 920k-dot resolution for clear image viewing. The 3.0" LCD monitor features a tilting design that enables easier viewing from both high and low angles. The electronic viewfinder provides eye-level viewing capabilities and also serves as 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 50x Optical Zoom Lens
A super-long 50x optical zoom lens is integrated into the FinePix SL1000's design, giving a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-1200mm. 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 100x.
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 0.9 second startup time and 0.2 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 50x 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" Tilting LCD Monitor and EVF
The SL1000 is equipped with both a rear LCD monitor and an eye-level electronic viewfinder for monitoring and reviewing imagery. The 3.0" 920k-dot LCD monitor features a tiltable design that allows you to angle the monitor either up or down to better suit shooting from high and low angles. The electronic viewfinder also has a 920k-dot resolution and has 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 easy-to-hold 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, Landscape, Sport, Night, Night (Tripod), Fireworks, Sunset, Snow, Beach, Party, Flower, and Text.
  • Seven Advanced Filters are incorporated to further enhance the aesthetic quality of imagery, including: Pop Color, Toy Camera, Miniature, High Key, Partial Color (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Purple), Soft Focus, and Cross Screen.
  • RAW and RAW+JPEG image formats are supported and SILKYPIX RAW conversion software is included with the camera for processing and viewing these file types on your computer.
  • Motion panorama mode 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.
  • Pro Low-Light Mode automatically records four high sensitivity and low-noise exposures within a single frame to help reduce overall noise levels and heighten sensitivity.
  • 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 six 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.

      Comments about Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 Digital Camera:

      I had been looking at cameras all over the place
      they all had some features I wanted but not others.
      Then I came across the SL1000 at B&H and it had everything I was looking for and more 16 mega pix
      50mm zoom and lots of features at an unbelievable price. I am really enjoying it.

            Comments about Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 Digital Camera:

            I bought this camera for an upcoming trip overseas. Currently I interpret a photography class and was fascinated by all a camera can do. I did want a point and shoot camera so I could use it right away. I've already taken some great shots. Well, I think so anyway. It's simple to use and the manual does explain most things about the camera although I could use more details. Software is a bit difficult to understand also. Those are the only negatives I can think of for this camera. Not only does it have a electronic viewfinder, the LCD screen is movable. All of this for a very decent price thanks to B&H's photography representative ability to find everything I wanted in a camera under budget.
            I showed the camera to the photography professor at the local college and he was very excited by what it could do. Shutter speed, aperture and ISO can be adjusted for various affects.
            I am very please with my purchase and hope to get a lot of use and many good pictures in the future

              The ease to use this camera is amazing. The only drawn back is the battery goes quick. Great price, family members purchased a Nikon but not happy this camera takes better pics, PERIOD! Going to try a differnt approach to see if the battery will last longer. I do have an extra battery & charger from my now broken Fuji that's the same. You Tube great videos for all the hidden extras and how to use. Service from B&H is fantastic, 2nd purchase from them.

                      AMAZING zoom for a "domestic" camera. Very stability.

                      Not so easy to navigate between the modes, but easy to learn how to.

                        Comments about Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 Digital Camera:

                        This camera fell very short of my expectations. The zoom capability and the ability to shot in the raw were the two biggest reason I purchased this camera, however the zoom in useless with out speed or the ability to focus quickly. The view finder is useless, it is like trying to look though shaving cream and while the LCD screen does allow for better viewing it doesn't focus in time for you to see what you are zooming in to see. This camera has received all good reviews in the past so I was super surprised to find it so lacking. Needless to say I have returned this camera. I currently have a Nikon5100 that I love but I was looking to add the zoom option without the zoom lens expense but now I see I am much better off saving the thousands to get the big zoom vs paying the $xxx for this fuji that is useless in all aspects. I would like to note here that I have also tried out the Canon SX50 hs and both the zoom and the focus on the Canon work very well. If you are looking for a super zoom bridge camera I would highly recommend the Canon sx50hs.
