Fantastic Classy Camera Which Takes Amazing Pictures Review with images

AdvantagesFantatic Picture quality, fantastic camera.

DisadvantagesShutter Lag, Load Up Time, Reliability is unknown, seems flimsy in some places.

"...up buying was called the Fujifilm S800fd, it is known as a bridge type camera and it allows you take brilliant quality photos which can be confused for professional photographs. I was told that this was probably the closest I was going to get to a DSLR, than actually paying the price for one of those, and I think I have brought something pretty good here. ==The Specifications== Pixels: 8.3million pixels Lens: 18x Optical Zoom Lens Shutter ..."

Classy camera, classy photos! Review with images

AdvantagesSee review.

DisadvantagesVery few.

"...a bridge type camera the Fujifilm S8000fd offers you the choice of taking brilliant photos on auto mode where the camera does all the adjustments for you or the chance to take control of aperatures, white balance and ISO`s to choose exactly the outcome you require for each photo you take. The S8000fd really does produce top quality images that to the untrained eye could easily pass for professional. It can be used to take extreme close ups known ..." Read review

You've been papped.

AdvantagesEasy to use, very professional

DisadvantagesLots of features which I am yet unsure of

"...money I opted for the Fujifilm FinePix S8000FD which I know is one of the best cameras there is to buy and it is 8 megapixels. There are five main features to this camera and although i'm no expert at using all the specifications I have mastered the basics for now. The Fujifilm FinePix S8000FD has: (1) 18x Optical Zoom - with this zoom I can zoom in 18x and take pictures of things which are quite close up or far away. What I really like to do ..." Read review

Fantastic camera, packed with features!

AdvantagesLots of useful features, easy to use

DisadvantagesLong shutter delay

"My previous camera was a Fuji finepix A101, and has been an absolutely fantastic little camera. I took some fantastic photos of my beautiful little girl with it, but couldn't enlarge them because it only has 1.3 mega pixels! When looking for a new camera, I only looked at fuji finepix because I was so happy with my previous camera. I decided to get a digital SLR so I could take close up photos of flowers. It cost £183 from Amazon; the case and ..." Read review

A very good camera would recommend.

AdvantagesSize, huge zoom, great picture quality

DisadvantagesTakes AA batteries (small issue as they last for a long time)

"This is a good quality camera. It is reasonably priced, I paid about £150 for mine. The camera is easy to use due to the rotating switch on the top for the modes. The zoom switch is in an easy to reach position. Due to the size and weight of the camera it is easy to carry with a strap and also a good shape so it's easy to hold. The camera has lots of features including, an 18x zoom, a pop up flash, and many settings such as snow, party, landscape ..." Read review

an excellent chioce

AdvantagesHuge Zoom, Great Picture quality, easy to use

DisadvantagesA bit heavy, price

"This is a great camera it is 8.0MP although this is not as much as some cameras you could buy that cost less, it makes up for this in the quality you get. The colours are very realistic and captures the depth and true light recreated. There are several settings for different locations and pictures you take such as flower, Party, Beach, Sunset, Auction, Portrait, Night, Fireworks,Snow, Museum, Text and Sport. It also has a macro mode a setting for ..." Read review

amazing for the price

AdvantagesZoom, IS,

Disadvantagesnone

"All these people saying grainy images etc, They are all newbie's that don't even know what iso is, Cause they shoot in AUTO mode and in AUTO fuji cam's tend to sellect to high an ISO, Switch to PROGRAM mode lower the iso and your sorted. Very usable images up to iso400 iso800 is not to bad, The fact that you get 27mm wideangle, 486mm telephoto, And a ccd shift IS system that work's great, All this in a tidy little package for this price is nothing ..."

Quick review of Fujifilm FinePix S8000FD

"This new camera is my 3rd Fuji in 8 years. It follows a similar format to my others and despite the vaste range of features it really was easy to get started. The software hooks into windows XP proffessional easily and the printed results on my epsom R360 are the best ever. All the extra features show promise and it really has the feel and performance of a traditional SLR. The lens with optical zoom is most impressive and good for all situations - point and shoot or enthusiastic amateur.

Want an all singing point and shoot for under £130 ?

AdvantagesBIG zoom, easy to use, cheap, good photos, quite compact for the type of camera

DisadvantagesNothing Really just poor sound on video recording

"I only got this in August as a replacement for my brilliant but ageing Konica Minolta Z2 (4Mp 10X Optical zoom). The camera is fantastic, it feels weighty, solid and balanced, the grip is ideal and everything is within easy reach. On one Saturday night I took over 350 photos with this and over 500 in total at a Blues festival, in comparison to the Z2 this is a different class, the sheer ability of that huge 18x lens is wonderful, the image stabilisation ..."

Quick review of Fujifilm FinePix S8000FD

"The S8000fd places a smaller sensor behind a much longer-range zoom lens in a less SLR-like body. Going head to head with the Panasonic FZ18 and Olympus SP560UZ the S8000fd is Fuji's most ambitious zoom compact to date. It is also the first long-zoom camera from Fuji to offer image stabilization (in this case a CCD-shake system), which is offered by most competing brands and is pretty much essential with a zoom this long. The S8000fd packs an awful lot into its compact body, and seems to be trying pretty hard to be all things to all people, with manual exposure controls sitting alongside point-and-shoot convenience features such as face detection. There is a high-speed shooting mode (at reduced resolution), and some extremely high sensitivity modes (again at lower resolution), for shooting in low light.

Very good camera for the price

AdvantagesBuild quality, decent optics, settings

DisadvantagesNot the most compact of compacts

"If you're looking for a cut above your normal point and shoot compact then this is probably for you. I had one for six months and never regretted owning it. A bit bigger than the average compact it lets you decide how creative you want to be, plenty of settings for you to play with if thats your thing or just let the camera decide for you. With 8MP's on tap your photos do look good even up to A4 size which is plenty big enough. This feels like ..." Read review

FUJI FILM s8000FD

AdvantagesIts Optical zoom, resolution, picture quality

DisadvantagesSize, Its bit Bulky to carry

"...eight megapixels of resolution. The Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd has body styling similar to that of single-lens reflex digital camera, and uses a 1/2.35-inch CCD image sensor. The Fujifilm S8000fd has got the Fujinon Zoom-branded 18x optical zoom lens, which offers a 27mm to 486mm zoom range and an f/2.8 maximum aperture at wide-angle. With a zoom lens this powerful, image stabilization is a must-have and Fujifilms Dual Image Stabilization system completely ..." Read review

Fujifilm Finepix S8000FD

AdvantagesResolution, great zoom, easy to handle

Disadvantagesbulky awkward design

"On the whole the camera is a bit bulky, however all your misgivings vanish once you switch it on. From the seemingly infinite zoom to the amazing 8 MPix resolution you can almost feel the surfaces of objects in the viewfinder, surface glare is reduced so that your shots don't get "whiteout" and the colours are vivid and very true to life. Amazingly easy to use, manual-phobics needn't fear this cam as it is really quite easy to operate once you accept ..." Read review
