Fujifilm FinePix S2800HD Review

 

The Fujifilm FinePix S2800HD (also called the S2900HD) is a new super-zoom digital compact camera that looks and feels like a DSLR. Featuring an 18x zoom lens with a 28-504mm focal range, 14 megapixels and a 3 inch LCD screen, the Fujifilm S2800HD...

It looks like a mini DSLR, but don't expect DSLR-picture quality or performance from the Fujifilm FinePix S2800HD and you won't be disappointed. And, although not slow by any means we generally found the S2800HD a bit sluggish on occasion in comparison...

Fujifilm FinePix S2800HD

 

We've had manufacturers such as Panasonic with its pioneering incorporation of ever-larger zooms into increasingly slim compact camera bodies that will fit in your pocket. At the other end of the spectrum there are the big zoom models that resemble...

Have we mentioned the price? Also, the broader than average zoom range, a decent sized and finger moulded handgrip, broad ISO range, better-than-average low light performance for its class

Camera sluggish to automatically regain focus if using zoom during video recording, built-in microphone picks up mechanical buzz of any lens adjustments when filming, softening of edge detail and distortion visible when shooting at extreme (28mm...

OK, so whilst you cannot change the lens on the front of the S2800HD, like you can with a DSLR or compact system camera, like all superzooms the pitch here is that with this broad a focal range on offer, why would you want to anyway? For those who are...

Great features spoilt by low light focus problem

 

I love the panorama feature...faultless.I love the other features...many and faultless.Excellent viewfinder and 3" screen. Tele / wide switch is a little mechanical, not very smooth. But works OK-ish. Zoom range is outstanding. Macro and super macro...

Fujifilm Finepix S2800HD

 

It is so easy to use. The Panoramic feature is a blast. Good all round quality and a nice price too. Light to carry. Good flash. If you are after your first "point and shoot" camera, this is the one you need.

the lens cap is a bit flimsy but other than that 10 out of 10.

Fujifilm Finepix S2800HD

 

Value for money, easy to use, variety of features

I find the camera bulky but i guess I will get used to it, I am not too happy on the image quality given that the quality is supposed to be HD, maybe I am missing something here..
