Fujifilm’s FinePix SL1000 bridge camera features a 16-megapixel 1/2.3-inch BSI-CMOS sensor, a powerful processor and a Fujinon 50x (24-1200 mm equivalent) zoom lens. Lens aperture is f/2.9-5.6 and a much needed optical image stabilization will help at the leng end of the zoom range.
With Intelligent Digital Zoom, the focal length is effectively doubled to 2400 mm. Image stablization indeed!
The lens has 17 elements in 12 groups, and combines aspherical and ED elements for reduced aberration and superior image quality. Super EBC coating technology is employed to reduce ghosting and flare for sharp results in challenging low light shooting situations, and is capable of macro photography as close as 1 cm.
The camera can shoot at sensitivities as high as ISO 12800, continuous shooting mode at 10fps is at full resolution (max 9 frames).
The SL1000 is capable of 1080i full HD movie capture at 60 fps with stereo sound. There’s a dedicated movie button and movie-editing features, including “movie trimming” and “movie join.”
The camera has an electronic viewfinder and 3.0-inch tilting, and a second zoom lever is placed on the side of the lens barrel, with three zoom speeds. P, S, A, and M shooting modes are available, with several creative filters as well as RAW capture.
