          Comments about Fujifilm FinePix S8400W Digital Camera:

          Most of the photos I shoot are outside and many are at quite a distance . The zoom range on the S8400W is perfect for what I do . Having the veiwfinder is a definate plus,as outdoor shots with just a LCD Monitor can be impossible on a sunny day.The controls are quite easy to learn and the settings are very useful . The included manual is about as basic as you can get , I would have prefered one that was more in depth . The image stabilization and auto focus work very well . I am very impressed by the "Pro low light " setting as alot of photos I take are either very early in the morning or at dusk . The wireless transfer feature is very handy . Just a few simple steps to send the photos from the camera to your computer or phone . The camera feels solid and has a nice weight , it sits well and hand held shots at a distance are not difficult . The S8400W is a great camera at a very good price. I can highly recomend it !

            Comments about Fujifilm FinePix S8400W Digital Camera:

            I've used the FinePix S8400w to take photos of birds and flowers. I've used long zooms before but had problems with shaking. The S8400w helps me get much sharper photos at long zoom settings with its image stabilization system. The macro photos are very good too and the colors are pleasing. I didn't have any trouble installing the WiFi software onto my phone, computer or tablet and it has all worked well for me. I can send a photo from my camera to my phone to upload to Facebook right when I have taken it and I like that at home I can send a whole group of photos to my computer using my home wifi network. The S8400W is not a small camera, it's about the size of a DSLR.
