Fujifilm FinePix S9800

 

The Fujifilm FinePix S9800 is one of two new S-series cameras for early 2015. The S9800, featured here, boasts almost all of the same features as the S9900W, but costs about $20 less because it does not include built-in Wi-Fi. To transfer images off of...

Fujifilm S9800 Review

 

As with last year's superzoom updates, Fujifilm released two models this year, one with and one without wireless connectivity. The new Fujifilm FinePix S9800 -- the replacement for the S9200 -- arrives as the sibling to the S9900W, but does not feature...

The Fuji FinePix S9800 will be available in the US market from March 2015, priced at about US$330 in black, red or white.

FUJIFILM FinePix S9800 Bridge Camera - Black

 

It's a light weight bridge camera. The zoom is quick reacting. Like that it works on AA batteries rather than having to recharge it or lithium only batteries. It's compact.

The zoom can sometimes make a little too much noise. Still getting used to it but some of the additional features can take some working out for an amateur.

FUJIFILM FinePix S9800 Bridge Camera - Black

 

Easy to use camera. Particularly like the panorama feature .

Only thing I don't like is battery status . You don't know how much power is left till there almost flat .so always carry spare batteries with you.

Too many to list. Expensive piece of plastic, but most of all, the lens cover is completely redundant, a deal breaker for me.

It is just a great camera for the money and the amount of features it has. Such a good bit of kit. I bought it for my husband.

FUJIFILM FinePix S9800 Bridge Camera - Black

 

It has a view finder which many cameras don't have now, there is an instruction booklet included so I don't have to download on line and then print out and the zoom on it is excellent. I bought this less than two weeks before a holiday in Australia and...

I don't find it very easy to take panoramic photos even though I can with my small camera
