Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 16.2MP Digital Camera with 3-Inch LCD (Black) Reviews

Choosing A Slr Digital Camera

The Fuji FinePix SL1000 Digital Camera features a 16 megapixel 1/2.3″ backside-illuminated CMOS sensor that is able to produce high quality imagery with notable low-light sensitivity. High speed performance is afforded throughout the system, enabling fast continuous shooting up to 10 full resolution frames per second and an auto focusing speed of 0.2 second. Full HD 1080i video capabilities are also supported at a frame rate of 60fps. An incredibly long 50x optical zoom lens is also built into the SL1000′s design, giving a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 24-1200mm. This range can be effectively doubled through the use of Intelligent Digital Zoom, and an optical image stabilization system benefits shooting at such magnifications by reducing the appearance of camera shake. Both a rear LCD monitor and electronic viewfinder are available for monitoring and image review, and both have a high 920k-dot resolution for clear image viewing.

    This review is from: Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 16.2MP Digital Camera with 3-Inch LCD (Black) (Electronics)

    I got the camers 3/15/13 and so far I am impressed. I am not a pro photographer but I do make software for a living. We make a product called iWatermark for Mac, Win, iPhone/iPad and Android so we quite a bit of experience with cameras. If you are interested our site is available with a search of Google (reviews don’t allow links).

    This is my initial review. To get it out of the way the highlights are 50x zoom, Raw as option, video up to 440 fps (at very small rez). I’ve tried them all. They work as advertised and they are awesome features for a camera this inexpensive.

    Features
    * 16 megapixel BSI CMOS sensor. Photos look great.
    50x optical zoom lens (35mm equiv: 24-1200mm). Simply awesome.
    Great Optical image stabilisation
    3 inch 920k dot tilting LCD screen. Love the tilting LCD very handy when shooting over peoples heads. Also for shooting at kid or pet level.
    Hotshoe
    920k dot electronic viewfinder (EVF)
    Full 1080p HD video recording with stereo sound and at 60 fps.
    ISO 100-12800
    1cm minimum focusing distance
    HDR & panorama modes
    Full manual controls and RAW shooting
    10 fps continuous shooting full rez or down to 480fps (240 x 180 pixels) or 240fps (320 x 240 pixels) or 120fps (640 x 480 pixels).
    Many special effects.
    Switch on Time to Taking a Photo 2.55 secs
    Shot to Shot without Flash 1.4 secs
    Shot to Shot with Flash 2.8 secs

    I am still experimenting with the huge number of features in hardware and software of the camera and will report back when I get some time.

    It is the most powerful, versatile and inexpensive camera I’ve ever owned and I would recommend it highly. I have tried all the other super zoom cameras and this is the winner for me.

    PS To solve the squabble by two other reviewers the manual zoom is in the usual place by the shutter button on the right top and on the left side middle of the lens. It works well and smoothly with a bit of noise.

    This review is from: Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 16.2MP Digital Camera with 3-Inch LCD (Black) (Electronics)

    Being skeptical about buying a DSLR (due to the cost mainly) I decided to try out this bridge camera, and I must confess I was more than impressed. The main feature of course is the unbelievable 50x zoom, which is totally stunning, and will help you take photos you could never have imagined. Photo quality is quite good, although noise does make its way into certain iso settings, but it’s not that obvious and you can easily correct this by “playing” with the settings(or lighting, if possible) . The camera focuses really quickly, though in macro mode if the light is low it may have a bit of a difficulty focusing. You can set the shutter and the aperture, or just switch to auto and let the camera decide what’s best for it’s shot. Generally, the photos in auto mode are very good, unless you want to tweak the settings for a specific shooting. You also get many creative options, like the toy camera effect and the cross screen, among others, which can give nice creative photos without the need of additional editing. Video quality is simply amazing, and luckily the camera keeps its focus(unlike previous Fujifilm models). There is also the option of raw saving, if you have the need for it. The lcd screen is crystal clear and it can tilt so it makes taking low or high photos a piece of cake.
    My only complaints:
    -the proximity sensor on the eyepiece is a bit tricky because it can be triggered by your body or hand and the lcd switches off to the eyepiece, which is kind of annoying ( you can select for the lcd to be always on and render the sensor inactive, which is exactly what I did).
    -the sound of focusing is apparent in videos ,like in previous Fujifilm’s models.
    -Battery drains quickly especially if using the zoom, so you better have a couple of extra batteries at hand.

    For its features (especially the 50x zoom) and price, this is definitely a bargain. Due to the small amount of noise at certain iso settings I would give this camera 4 stars, but because of the price it is offered and the features it has, I chose to give it 5. Overall I’m very pleased with it and very happy that I bought it!
