October 6, 2007 | Mark Goldstein | PhotographyBLOG | Comment | |

Fujifilm Finepix S8000fdThe Fujifilm Finepix S8000fd is the fourth ultra-zoom camera of 2007 to offer an incredible 18x zoom lens, joining the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ18 and Olympus SP-550 / SP-560 UZ. The S8000fd‘s lens starts at 27mm wide, just beating the 28mm lenses of the Panasonic and Olympus models, and ends at 486mm. There’s a new CCD-shift image stabilisation system to help ensure that your photos are sharp, an essential feature given the huge zoom range on offer, plus an 8 megapixel sensor, 2.7-inch LCD screen, electronic viewfinder, 1cm macro mode and Face Detection. With a retail price of £299 / $399, and a street price of around £225 / $350, the Fujifilm S8000fd is also a little bit cheaper than its rivals. On paper at least the Fujifilm Finepix S8000fd has a feature list that should meet the needs of most photographers, but does it live up to its potential? Carry on reading the world’s first review to find out…
