The Fujifilm FinePix S1 Digital Camera is a compact weather-resistant super-zoom camera featuring a 16.4 Mp 1/2.3" CMOS sensor that is capable of producing high-resolution stills and full HD 1080p movies 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 as well as an auto focusing speed of 0.14 seconds, a startup time of 0.68 seconds, and a shooting interval time of 0.65 seconds.
The built-in Fujinon 50x optical zoom lens provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-1200mm, covering wide-angle to super telephoto perspectives to suit working in nearly any shooting scenario. A 5-axis image stabilization system can be employed to further eliminate the appearance of camera shake in order to produce sharper imagery when working in dim lighting and with greater zoom magnifications.
Both a rear 3.0" 920k-dot LCD monitor and 920k-dot electronic viewfinder are available for monitoring and image review. The LCD monitor features a vari-angle design to facilitate easier viewing from both high and low working angles, while the electronic viewfinder provides eye-level viewing capabilities and an additional point of contact between yourself and the camera for greater shooting stability.
Additionally, the S1 features built-in wireless connectivity to enable direct transferring of images between the camera and iOS or Android devices for instant sharing online. Wireless connectivity also provides the ability to remotely control your camera as well as view a live view image from the mobile device's screen.
Accessible through a dedicated Movie Recording Button, the sensor also lends itself to producing full HD 1080p videos in the H.264 format with the added benefit of 5-axis image stabilization to ensure smooth playback and motion rendering. The 2-axis optical image stabilization system counters both pitch and yaw movements while a 3-axis electronic image stabilization system compensates for roll, vertical shift, and horizontal shift movement types. 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 480 fps. Sound is recorded via a built-in stereo microphone and an integrated wind noise filter helps to deliver clean recorded audio. Video playback is possible on an HDTV directly from the camera through an HDMI connection.
