Fujifilm has announce that its Fuji X-S1 superzoom camera is now onsale in the UK.
12Mp RAW photos, HD video and 26x optical zoom
Announced in November and shown at this month's CES trade show in Las Vegas, the Fujifilm X-S1 bridge camera is a 12Mp camera with a 26x optical zoom lens equivalent to 24-624mm in 35mm film photography terms. The X-S1 costs £699.
Images can be previewed on its EVF (electronic viewfinder) and reviewed on the tiltable 460K dot 3in LCD. A daylight mode attempts to compensate for screen glare.
The Fujifilm X-S1 supports 10-frames-per-second shooting (as 6Mp Jpegs) and 7fps when shooting 12Mp Jpegs. It can also take RAW format photos. The camera has a shutter lag of just 0.01 seconds. Despite firing off shots in such quick succession, the camera has a CIPA-rated battery life of 500 shots per charge. Optical image stabilisation and a 'super macro' mode in which the 2/3in EXR CMOS lens focuses down to 1cm, both feature.
The EXR lens offers three lighting modes - High Resolution, Wide Dynamic Range and High Sensitivity/Low Noise – as well as an automatic detection mode. ISO levels up to 3200 are supported. The camera also has a 360-degree panorama mode and can shoot HD video.
