Fujifilm FinePix S1600 Review

 

The Fujifilm FinePix S1600 is a new super-zoom digital compact camera that looks and feels like a DSLR. Featuring a 15x zoom lens with a 28-420mm focal range, 12 megapixels and a 3 inch LCD screen, the Fujifilm S1600 offers full manual photographic...

Less than £150 / $200 is a complete steal for a super-zoom camera that offers virtually all the functionality of its big brother, the S2500HD. The only proviso is that more compact travel models, such as the Samsung WB650, now also offer a 15x zoom....

FujiFilm's FinePix S1600 left a lot to be desired during our tests

Impressive 15x zoom with fast and smooth focus

Unimpressive image and video quality, manual settings are confusing

Despite the impressive 15x optical zoom, the Fujifilm FinePix S1600 failed to impress us. During our tests, images were plagued with noise and chromatic aberration, and we found the camera difficult to use.

Fujifilm FinePix S1600

 

The Fujifilm FinePix S1600 is a compact superzoom powered by AA batteries, let down by its average images.

Wide-angle lens. Compact and lightweight despite using AA batteries. Cheap for a superzoom.

No dedicated record button, HDMI out or hotshoe. Image degradation over ISO 200. Poor sound recording.

The Fujifilm FinePix S1600 is a compact superzoom powered by AA batteries and jammed full of features for the price, but is let down by its average images.

Fujifilm FinePix S1600 digital camera review

 

The FujiFilm FinePix S1600 is a 12.1-megapixel, 15x super-zoom digital camera. It has a few pros and a whole lot of cons. Put it this way: if the S1600 was your significant other and you were weighing up whether or not to end your relationship by...

Can the S1600 live up to high expectations?

A true performer that's not afraid to put in heavy-duty work for excellent results. Light and compact, this is a travel-friendly and affordable superzoom

Consumer review (cnet.com.au)

"A Bargain Camera with a lot of features"

 

You have to judge the S1600 for what it really is. It is a bargain super zoom camera that allows novice/beginner users to have a very good learning tool at well less than $(US)200.00.

Good/Average Image Quality-HDvideo

Slow Lens

Fujifilm FinePix S1600

 

This review is very misjudging- you can shot very good images to say the least if you know how to use s1600 features. It's not on par with DSLR quality but gives some of their opportunities (shutter/aperture/ISO settings etc.) and make a sharp, crisp,...

nothing better up to twice the price

no manual focus
