The Fujifilm Digital Camera FinePix S8000fd, features the world''s most powerful 18x long zoom Fujinon lens and their new Dual Image Stabilization system (CCD shift Image Stabilization & High Sensitivity).

The FinePix S8000fd is perfect for enthusiasts looking for a combination of high-pixel (8.0-Megapixel) and stabilized long zoom, in a neat compact body. The S8000fd delivers one key feature that consumers cannot easily get on an SLR, a 27mm wide-angle to 486mm super telephoto (35mm equivalent) 18X zoom lens.

Many consumers are looking for an easy to carry long zoom solution for sports events, concerts, wildlife photography, or just general tourism. Long-zoom photography is very popular for action shots of kids on the sport field, unobtrusive portraits of family or friends and candid nature photography. Using the digital zoom, the S8000fd can zoom up to an astonishing 91.8 times magnification.

  • 8 MegaPixels CCD
  • NEW 18x Wide Angle Optical Zoom
  • 27mm-486mm equivalent
  • NEW Dual Image Stabilization - Combines mechanical image stabilization with Fuji''s Picture Stabilization
  • 2.5-inch LCD
  • Electronic Viewfinder (EVF)
  • Face Detection Technology
  • Picture Stabilization mode
  • Mode Dial for easy access of features
  • Up to ISO 1600 at full resolution
  • 4xAA Battery Power for convenience
  • Compact SLR-styled chassis
  • xD / SD / SD-HC Media Compatible Slot
Flexibility & Control
The S8000fd comes equipped with Fujinon''s 18x Wide Angle Optical Zoom lens, offering unprecedented flexibility in a compact SLR body style camera. With a 27mm-486mm equivalent, it''s all the lens you need in one device. The fixed lens eliminates the need for additional zoom or wide angle lenses, and it''s a sealed system, which prevents dust contamination - the #1 D-SLR repair complaint. The S8000fd also features a full-resolution ISO equivalency of ISO 1600, a rarity in consumer-level digicams. The S8000fd can achieve ISO 3200 and ISO 6400 at 50% resolution, settings that are rare at the consumer level. Such high light sensitivities allow for faster shutter speeds, which reduce blurring caused by both camera shake and subject movement.

Dual Image Stabilization
To offer the best of both worlds where image stabilization is concerned, the S8000fd uses Dual Image Stabilization; a brand new combination of mechanical sensor shift stabilization with Fujifilm''s Picture Stabilization Technology which utilizes a combination of higher ISO levels and faster shutter speeds. This Dual Image Stabilization steadies the photographer''s hand, and protects against camera shake and subject movement for total anti-blur protection. As a result, an increase in clarity and sharpness is achieved, even in low light conditions or when shooting moving subjects.

Face Detection Technology
The S8000fd features Fujifilm''s Face Detection technology, identifying up to 10 faces in a framed scene. Once faces are identified and prioritized, the S8000fd adjusts its focus and exposure accordingly to ensure the sharpness and clarity of human subjects in the picture, regardless of background. Face Detection technology on the S8000fd also includes a new Automatic Red Eye Removal feature. Red eye is a common complaint given by 60% of digital camera users. In this mode, the camera instantly checks each detected fact for red eye, and if it''s found, corrects it automatically, saving the time consuming process of fixing it in your PC after the image is downloaded.

Other helpful features found on the FinePix S8000fd for top-quality picture-taking include:

  • i-Flash Intelligent Flash: i-Flash (Intelligent Flash) detects subtle lighting differences within a scene and then varies the flash intensity accordingly. It also leverages the high sensitivity of the FinePix S8000fd to enable the camera to use less flash, resulting in an image that displays pleasing, natural tones without a washed-out effect. And with an automatic pop-up flash, it''s always ready when you need it.
  • Full Manual Photographic Control: Gives the user total control with manual adjustment options for settings on the camera (resolution, ISO, aperture, shutter speed, etc), and is desirable by the photo enthusiasts/advanced photographers.
  • Movie Mode: Capture VGA quality action clips in 640x480 resolution at 30 fps with sound. Great for when you''re out and you don''t have your video camera on-hand.
  • Scene modes: A wide range of more than a dozen pre-programmed scene modes provides top-quality photos in a range of shooting conditions.
  • High-Speed Continuous Shooting Modes: Action comes at you fast. With four speed options, the S8000fd has the ability to capture up to 15 frames per second (at 2 MP resolution) and never misses the shot.
  • High Resolution LCD: The 2.5-inch LCD display offers 230k pixels of resolution with an astonishing 60 fps refresh rate for smooth viewing.
  • Electronic Viewfinder (EVF): Rather than framing your shots with the 2.5-inch high resolution LCD, the S8000fd offers an electronic viewfinder to eye up the best shot with an astonishing 60 fps refresh rate for smooth viewing.
  • xD / SD / SD-HC Compatible slot: A new single media slot accepts not only Fujifilm''s traditional xD-Picture Cards but also Secure Digital (SD) and SD-High Capacity (SD-HC) cards too.
  • Operates on 4xAA Batteries: The ultimate in convenience and accessibility, using AA batteries means in a pinch, more batteries are just moments away.

Comments about FujiFilm FinePix S8000fd Digital Camera:

This is my second digital camera and my first Fujifim camera and I'm finding it much easier to use. I use my camera on vacations and need a camera that will take landscape shots in all different conditions. This camera will do that for me. I love taking snow scenes for our Christmas card and the clarity and contrast is excellant. I was also able to catch a bird in flight so the lag time is very short.

Comments about FujiFilm FinePix S8000fd Digital Camera:

I bought this camera for family pictures, and outdoor scenery pictures, and have been very pleased so far. Easy to set up and operate the menu, and I love how it feels in my hands... perfect size! Big enough that you can get a good grip on it, but small enough that you don't feel like you're carrying an anvil. I am still such a beginner with digital, and wanted a camera in the higher end of the digital range but not an SLR... this Fuji fits that bill perfectly.

Comments about FujiFilm FinePix S8000fd Digital Camera:

I have had the camera for about 2 weeks now. It takes very good pictures right out of the box. Very good in low light, Lots of settings to choose from.
There are a couple of things I do not like so far the AF lamp on the camera is in a bad spot if you have bigger hands your fingers can get in the way and the camera will misjudge the picture and the LCD picture quality is lacking.
I have read alot of reviews on this and other cameras in its class as well as tried a bunch of them they all have good qualitys and bad ones as well. There is no perfect camera in this class but this one comes the closest in my opinion.

Comments about FujiFilm FinePix S8000fd Digital Camera:

I wanted a camera with the strongest optical zoom possible, yet did not want to deal with interchangeable lenses. This camera meets all my needs, is compact, and produces outstanding quality images. Mostly, the camera will be used for scenery, family gatherings, and social events. I highly recommend it!

Comments about FujiFilm FinePix S8000fd Digital Camera:

I've owned many FINEPIX. I have a E900 and 8000FD. I sold my S700 because I don't need it now that I have the 8000FD The only thing I miss from the S700 is the ability to zoom while shooting video but the improvements make up for it. With the addition of 18x Opt Zoom, Face Detection and Dual image stabilization WOW!! This camara is AMAZING especially in difficult lighting conditions. If you take a lot of indoor photos this camera has many settings to help you get high quality shots easily. It has very good battery life for a long zoom camera. This camera has SEMI PRO features and is extremely versatile and has lots of possibiities for creativity. Yet it's still lightweight and easy to use. TRY IT FOR YOURSELF. Finally I don't need to use 2 cameras to get the shots I crave.

Comments about FujiFilm FinePix S8000fd Digital Camera:

I have tried over 8 point & shoot camera's that were all over 10x optical and nothing came close to the quality of pictures this camera provides. It is a very nice size and does most everything that my Large, Bulky Canon XTi DSLR does without the expense of extra lenses and the weight of toting everything around. Try it. What have you got to lose? If you don't like it just return it for a full refund without any hassles like you get most places!
