Fujifilm Press Release
Zoom in on life with FUJIFILM’s new S4800
FUJIFILM is proud to launch the new FinePix S4800 bridge camera into its spring 2013 range. Highly regarded for their powerful optical zoom lenses, quick responses, ease-of-use and compact nature, bridge cameras are an excellent choice for all.
The S4800 is available in April with an RRP of £149.99.
1.?Powerful optical zoom and powerful Optical Image Stabilisation
The S4800 bridge camera is equipped with a powerful 30× (24-720mm equivalent) FUJINON optical zoom. There’s no need to worry about blurry images from camera shake or subject movement, as the S4800 is armed with OIS (sensor shift image stabilisation). Furthermore, on the other end of the scale, and for the more artistic amongst us, great results can be achieved with the clever Super Macro which gets you as close as 2cm from your subject.
2.?High quality images and a super speedy response time
The S4800 camera benefits from a 16 megapixel, 1/2.3 inch CCD sensor that captures even the finest details. Plus with the choice of six different scene types, Scene Recognition Auto mode can cleverly recognise the subject you’re shooting, and decide on the settings required. Offering autofocus speeds as fast as 0.3 seconds*1 and start-up times of 1.3seconds *1 the S4800 will give you responsive, hassle-free photography.
3.?Great videos at the touch of a button
Record HD movie 720P/30fps in 16:9 format, then share your memories with friends and family on the big screen, using the mini HDMI connector*2. What’s more with the clever Video Scene Recognition feature and a dedicated Video Recording button, you can leave the camcorder at home, and capture some great spur-of-the-moment footage!
4.?Advanced Photographic Support
This highly specified bridge camera comes with a whole host of features to make your photography more enjoyable, such as a mode dial for selecting P, S, A, and M modes and a large 3-inch LCD screen, for framing and viewing pictures. Features such as Instant Zoom, which shows your composition area as well as the area outside the frame, and Individual Shutter 3D, which creates 3D pictures by merging 2 images, provide an interesting twist for your photos. Not forgetting features such as the Date Stamp, which lets you record the date the photo was taken, and the 320 shot, 4×AA alkaline batteries, which allow you to go on long trips without worrying about battery life.
