FUJIFILM New Long Zoom Bridge Cameras
The two new S-Series models – the S6800 and S4800 each boast an Optical Image Stabilization system for blur reduction, and genuine FUJINON long zoom lenses with 30x optical zoom.
The FinePix S-Series cameras both offer 30x zoom (24-720mm) with a wide range of focal lengths for maximum versatility. They also each use a FUJINON lens that consists of 17 elements in 12 groups, and combines aspherical and ED elements that help to reduce aberrations and promote a superior level of image quality. Each of the new bridge cameras are also capable of a Super Macro mode for users to get as close as 0.78” from a subject for great close-up shots.
The S6800 has a 16MP 1/2.3-inch BSI-CMOS sensor that captures excellent quality, low noise shots at sensitivities as high as ISO 12800. It features autofocus speeds of 0.3 seconds, start-up times of 1.0 seconds, a 0.5 seconds interval between shots and a continuous shooting speed of 8fps (max 10 frames at full resolution). And with its ultra-high-speed shooting of up to 60fps (max 60 frames, image size 1280 × 960) and up to 120fps (max 60 frames, image size 640 × 480), the S6800 lets users capture the action in slow-motion for advanced photography.
The S4800 uses a 16MP 1/2.3-inch CCD sensor that captures sharp quality, low noise shots and has autofocus speeds of 0.3 seconds and a start-up time of 1.3 seconds for quick action shooting at a great value.
Both S-Series cameras have an easy to use Mode Dial for shooting selection, a bright 3.0” LCD screen (460k-dot S6800 and 230K-dot S4800) for easy viewing and image framing and the S6800 adds a dual zoom control for speed and precision zooming..
The FinePix S6800 makes movie recording as easy as taking pictures using the dedicated movie button to start recording instantly. The high resolution, 1080i movie capture at 60fps with stereo sound and slow-motion capture at 480fps is superb when played back on HDTV screens, and users can even take still photos during video recording. The S6800 also adds a number of in-camera movie editing features including “movie trimming” and “movie join.”
The FinePix S4800 also shoots in 720p at 30fps in 16:9 format to let users share memories with friends and family on the big screen using the mini HDMI connector, plus there's a Video Scene Recognition feature and a dedicated Video Recording button.
The FinePix S-Series will be available March 2013 at the price of $249.95 (S6800) and $229.95 (S4800). Both models will be available in black, and the S6800 will also be available in White and Red.
