The Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd Digital Camera is an 8-Megapixel, SLR-styled camera that features an incredible Fujinon 18x Wide Angle Optical Zoom lens. With a 27-486mm equivalent focal length (in 35mm terms), it eliminates the need for additional zoom or wide angle lenses, and it's a sealed system, which prevents dust contamination of the camera body. The S8000fd also features a high ISO equivalency of ISO 1600 at full-resolution, and can achieve ISO 3200 and ISO 6400 at 4 megapixel resolution. Such high light sensitivities allow for faster shutter speeds, which reduce blurring caused by both camera shake and subject movement.
This easy-to-operate camera allows users to select from 13 automatic scene settings, including a 'Sunset mode' to emphasize vivid colors, a 'Beach and Snow mode' for minimizing glare in bright situations, and a 'Party mode' for indoor settings, allowing images to retain the natural ambience of the scene in low-light conditions. The FinePix S8000fd also features Dual Image Stabilization - which combines mechanical sensor shift stabilization with Fujifilm's Picture Stabilization Technology to reduce blurry images that can be caused by camera shake or subject movement. You can frame your shots, or view your pictures and video clips on the high resolution 2.5" LCD Display right on the back of the camera.
Other helpful features found on the FinePix S8000fd include the i-Flash Intelligent Flash System which results in an image that displays pleasing, natural tones without a "washed-out" effect; Full Manual Photographic Control for total control of the camera settings; a Movie Mode that capture VGA quality clips at 30 fps with sound; High-Speed Continuous Shooting with the ability to capture up to 15 frames per second (at 2MP resolution); compatiblity with xD-Picture, SD and SDHC type memory cards; and it even uses common AA-Type batteries for the ultimate in convenience and accessibility.
