Fujifilm has announced new additions to its Finepix S range of superzoom/bridge cameras. The Fujifilm FinePix S8200 and S8500 feature high-precision Fujinon lenses (24-960mm equivalent on the S8200 and 24-1104mm equivalent on the S8500) plus powerful lens shift Optical Image Stabilisation. Featuring 17 elements in 12 groups, and combining aspherical and ED elements, these lenses cover everything from ultra-wideangle to extreme telephoto, with a 1cm super macro mode thrown in for good measure. The Fuji S8200 and S8500 both house 16-megapixel BSI-CMOS sensors, and boast autofocus speeds of 0.3 seconds, a start-up time of 1 second, a 0.5 second interval between shots and a continuous shooting speed of 10fps at full resolution. Both new S series cameras come with built-in 200K dot EVFs, 460K dot rear sreens and Full HD video recording capabilities, and both are powered by readily available AA sized batteries.
