Fujifilm S4200 overview

  • 1Description

The FUJIFILM FinePix S4200 Digital Camera bridges the gap between the point-and-shoot and DSLR realms in a number of ways. It's compact, yet features a useful hand grip. It boasts a 24x optical zoom lens, an electronic viewfinder, and a 3.0" LCD, among other great attributes - including 1280 x 720 high definition video capture. At the same time, the S4200 keeps things simple in small ways, such as AA alkaline battery power and a super-fast start-up time of 1.8 seconds.

The Fujinon 24x optical zoom, 24-576mm wide angle zoom lens gives you the flexibility to shoot close-up or super telephoto, capturing distant subjects with ease. The lenses' Super EBC coating - the same process used for Fujinon broadcasting video lenses and large format pro cameras - reduces ghosting and lens flare, for clean, crisp images. The aforementioned 24x zoom also utilizes a 42-step electronic powered zoom control for smooth transitions. Additionally, in macro, the lens can capture subjects as close as 2cm (0.7").

Of course the S4200 also packs in all the great simplicity of a point-and-shoot with its many auto modes and functions. Six Scene SR AUTO modes - including Portrait, Landscape, Night, and then some - along with a bevy of other options, take the guesswork out of shooting, giving you great images each time you shoot. Another example of a great function of the S4200 is the Natural Light and With Flash function, a mode that takes both a natural light image and one with flash, as the name so aptly suggests. When you can't decide which way to go, shoot both. Save both images or only keep the one you like best. Either way, you'll get to see the image both ways and decide for yourself.

When you're finished shooting - whether you captured stills or videos - FUJIFILM makes it easy to share your memories. There's the option to tag files in-camera for instant social media sharing upon connection to a computer, and there's the MyFinePix Studio which automatically searches for new images to upload when you connect the camera to your computer as well. Additionally post-production functions include Photobook Assist and a number of useful playback options like Micro Thumbnail View, slideshow, and red-eye removal.
