Although the Fujifilm FinePix S2000HD has the usual compliment of creative controls and 'DSLR lite' looks, suggesting that it's suitable for the budding pro seems a little wide of the mark. So, is the S2000HD alternatively a good option for the relative photographic novice who nevertheless requires a large zoom reach? The answer is pretty much yes. It's fun to use, delivers the results and even if, in the final analysis, they're neither as sharp or as evenly exposed as some of the competition, overall they're perfectly acceptable given the build and asking price. The zoom lens is of course the true talking point. The fact that the 15x zoom can be used in both video and stills modes is a bonus, and the quality of the video, although not quite full HD, is certainly better than that usually found on superzooms and another reason perhaps for a compact user to upgrade to this model rather than a fully blown DSLR (unless going for a Nikon D90 or Canon 5D Mark II, not really the same target market). Factor in that this is a user-friendly model in size, shape, features and performance, and for those who want a lot of camera for relatively little outlay, the Fujifilm FinePix S2000HD would seem to fit the bill nicely.
