Like the other 18x zoom / 8MP cameras on the market the FinePix S8000fd is a camera that tries to be all things to all men, and in some respects it succeeds, in others it shows the limitations of current compact camera technology in a very stark manner.

Fujifilm Finepix S8000fd Review

 

Having recently taken its long zoom cameras into ever more DSLR-like territory, Fuji's S8000fd is something of a departure. 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...

Fuji FinePix S8000fd

 

If you don't want to spring for a digital SLR, Fujifilm's S8000fd is a well-priced one-lens-fits-all alternative with a massive zoom along with advanced features and manual controls.

Affordable. Sturdy design. Excellent 18X zoom lens. Effective image stabilization. Can capture movies.

Dual image stabilization creates some image noise. Some shutter lag. No RAW file support.

Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd review

 

One of the best reasons to consider a megazoom is the fact that you get a big zoom range in a small package, so you don't have to carry around huge SLR lenses and, more importantly, you don't have to pay the huge prices for those SLR lenses. Fujifilm's...

Long 18x optical zoom lens with 27mm-equivalent wide angle; nice manual exposure controls; sensor-shift image stabilization.

Sluggish performance; mediocre image quality; no hotshoe; no RAW capture.

Fuji's S8000fd 18x megazoom has a nice body design and offers a commendable level of control, but its mediocre image quality and sluggish performance blights what could otherwise be an excellent camera.

Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd review

 

A number of manufacturers have dropped their Megazoom models to make room for the entry level digital SLR cameras. On the one hand that is very understandable since the prices of both models are almost alike, but on the other hand; a Megazoom camera is...

The Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd may be an enhanced digital camera with a megazoom onboard, but the competition is strong and cannot be ignored. And that’s the problem. Working with the Fujifilm S8000fd camera is pleasant in itself, although I cannot get...

Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd Digital Camera - Review - The Imaging Resource!

 

Just two days after Panasonic unveiled the FZ18, Fujifilm unveiled an electronic viewfinder-based digicam that couples eight megapixels of resolution with an 18x optical zoom lens. The Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd has body styling reminiscent of a...

High distortion and chromatic aberration (Somewhat typical of the long-zoom class, but still higher than average) ; Corners are soft at telephoto ; Noisy above ISO 400, blurred by heavy noise reduction ; No RAW mode ; A little too much chrome and...

Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd Review

 

I took the Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd on a few different outings where I would normally take my full size digital SLR. The compact size of the FinePix S8000fd immediately appealed to me. It easily fit into my golf bag, the side leg pocket of my cargo...

Cumbersome shutter and aperture controls, Small memory card door, Noticeable shutter-lag, Small viewfinder, Lens cap falls off easily, Battery life is on the short side

The Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd really is a jack-of-all-trades. With iffy battery life, and underpowered flash, and a questionable lens cape, it's not perfect. But it can do almost anything you want it to. While not my cup of tea for a compact sports...
