Mouseover image for back view

Category: Beginner to Serious

The Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd features 8 megapixel resolution on a 1/2.35 in. CCD delivering low noise ISO 1600 at full resolution, and up to ISO 6400 at 4MP.

It is Fujifilm's first ultra zoom digital camera with image stabilization. The image stabilization is CCD-shift and should be useful to stabilize the 18x wide-angle optical zoom (27-486mm, 35mm equiv.).

Dual Image Stabilization combines the CCD-shift Mechanical Stabilization with Fuji’s Picture Stabilization to help reduce blur caused by camera shake and subject movement.

A new Face Detection 2.0 technology can now recognize faces even from the side and adds automatic Red-Eye Removal. Movie recording is 640 x 480 pixels at 30 frames/sec with monaural sound. A new i-Flash system avoids washed out pictures by outputting only the right amount of light.

The Fujifilm S8000fd provides full photographic control with PASM functions. It accepts xD-Picture Card as well as Secure Digital (SD/SDHC) memory cards. It is housed in a compact SLR-styled chassis and uses 4 AA batteries.

The Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd will appeal to beginner to serious (as well as point-and-shoot) photographers desiring an ultra zoom with image stabilization.
