Fujifilm FinePix S100FS Review

 

For many years, consumers wanting more control and range than a compact but lower weight and cost than a DSLR have been able to buy 'bridge' cameras, which look a lot like DSLRs but do away with the bulky, expensive mirror assembly that defines an SLR....

Very useful zoom range Excellent resolution and good edge to edge detail Sharp, generally high-quality lens Expanded dynamic range option (and it works) Excellent high-ISO performance for a non-DSLR Full photographic control, huge range of SLR-like...

Strong, visible chromatic aberration at the most useful focal lengths Noise reduction attacks fine detail if you look too close 230 shot battery life somewhat limiting Film simulation rarely useful RAW processing software is unusable Electronic...

With the price of DSLRs dropping all the time, the justification for bridge cameras between compacts and full-grown DSLRs looks increasingly weak. The S100FS makes a game job of proving that there is still room for such a camera.

Fujifilm FinePix S100fs review

 

Over the last few years, Fujifilm have managed to maintain their reputation and even add to it with digital Megazoom cameras. These cameras are a nice compromise and find themselves in between a mostly larger D-SLR camera with matching lenses and a...

The market for the so-called bridge cameras is very much under pressure due to the DSLR cameras becoming cheaper and cheaper. And yet the bridge cameras are obviously in favour, especially when they have a huge zoom range. It's quite clear that a...

Fujifilm FinePix S100FS Review

 

Fujifilm are calling the new FinePix S100FS "its most advanced DSLR-styled camera to date", and a glance at the headline specs quickly reveals why. The S100FS offers a 14.3x 28-400mm manual zoom lens, optical image stabilisation, 11 megapixel 2/3â??...

The first thing that impresses about the Fujifilm FinePix S100FS is its build and weight a large proportion of that due to the chunky optic bolted onto the front and, image quality apart, it's an impression that stays with you. Being well thought...

Fujifilm FinePix S100FS Digital Camera - Review

 

You can tell the Fujifilm S100FS is no ordinary long zoom digital camera the minute you take it out of the box. It has the build of a digital SLR, slightly bigger in fact than the Canon Rebel XSi. It operates like a digital SLR, too, with a manual zoom...

Fujifilm's FinePix S100FS; Capturing A “Digital Film” Look

 

Fuji's FinePix S100FS (Film Simulation) is an electronic viewfinder digicam that's designed to produce film-like images at the point of capture. How it does it is not all that different than a D-SLR set on Picture Styles or similar, but the S100FS does...

Exposure 2 is similar to what the S100FS produces, but that Photoshop compatible plug-in also offers emulations for Velvia 50, 100, and 100F film, with and without grain, something Fujifilm's own simulation does not provide

Fujifilm FinePix S100FS Review

 

As it turns out, we are indeed being fair to Fujifilm. The S100FS resolves many of the complaints I had with previous all-in-one, fixed-lens DSLR-type cameras. The camera is reasonably fast, performs well at higher ISO settings, and has extended...
