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.

    I love taking photographs. My photos have won prizes at the Tennessee Valley Fair. (Whoo-hoo!) Just once I’d like to say to someone, “My hobby is nature photography,” and have that person reply, “Me, too. I love the intricacies found in a rose.” But, no. They always reply,”Me, too. What shutter speed do you find most effective when photographing moving water in partial shade?” What’s up with that? I’m not an engineer. If I wanted to spend an afternoon doing math, I’d balance my checkbook. I am the artist; the camera is the scientist. My job is to notice how beautifully the shadow of an ancient oak tree falls on the side of an abandoned house. The camera’s job is to capture that image digitally, without me having to tell it how. This camera is GREAT at that. Between the scene-recognition auto button and the choose-a-scene button (parties, beach, night scenes), this camera does everything I ask, and beautifully.The zoom is awesome. When I was taking pictures of the abandoned house, I couldn’t step on the porch, because it was rotten. Still, I was able to get a close-up of the brass doorknob every bit as good as if I’d gone right up to it. Without a tripod. On an overcast day. It’s the perfect camera for the person who’s photography skills lie primarily with seeing great pictures. I see the picture; the camera takes the picture. I love this camera.

    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.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)
    I was thrilled to be able to test and review the Fujufilm FinePix 16 Megapixel SL1000. It replaces a Canon Powershot G2 with 4 megapixels so is a huge step up for me. (And, to be admitted, a big learning curve, even though it’s a “point and shoot” camera–at least for most of my photography.

    First of all, do download the online extended manual since the abbreviated one included with the camera is not completely accurate. One example: when charging the battery, the included manual states the charger light turns green. Not so. The orange LED turns off. I emailed Fujifilm Support to learn this tidbit. Also, if you’re not familiar with the variety of shooting modes (Auto, Advanced, Scene Position, Motion Panorama, Shutter Priority AE, Aperture Priority AE, Manual and Custom) the included manual provides little detail. The downloadable 127-page extended manual is a necessity. I had mine printed on both sides and spiral bound since I will be referring to it constantly until I learn each procedure.

    The camera has many of the features of a DSLR, including a fantastic Fujinon 24 to 1200mm 50x zoom lens that is a combination of both spherical and ED lenses. With an aperture rating of f/2.9 – 6.5 (17 elements in 12 groups) you can count on great image quality. I’ve been shooting flowers in my garden and my jewelry creations using the macro in automatic mode and have been very pleased with the results. Even my hand-held shots are clear and detailed. A lever on the left-hand side controls the zoom and focus is automatic. Fujifilm offers 100x Intelligent Digital Zoom that brightens some of the darkest areas so my indoor shots are suitable for the high-quality images I need for my web page.

    The FinePix SL1000 comes equipped with a high-resolution electronic view finder that makes it easier to frame subjects (something I did not have with the Canon Powershot).

    I shoot mostly in JPEG (standard and fine) format but appreciate the ability to shoot in RAW. I’m still trying out the filters and the other shooting modes and will report back when I’ve fully evaluated these features. Also, I have not tested the HD video aspect.

    I like the size of the SL1000. Weight isn’t a problem, but at just under one and a half pounds, it’s a bit heavier than similar cameras due to the lens, and not something you could carry in your purse.

    The wide-angle LCD screen tilts to provide flexible viewing options for both high and low shooting positions, though for macro I prefer using the LCD screen in the flat position.

    The pluses far outweigh the negatives. Image noise has been mentioned ISO 100., but it hasn’t been a problem for me. The lens cap detaches easily and is suspended by a cord so it won’t be lost. Battery life is a problem, especially when using the zoom and/or shooting in automatic mode. Fujufilm’s batteries are proprietary, but they are not expensive (under $20). I suggest keeping an extra battery or two on hand if you plan to shoot a lot of pictures. Charge time is under an hour with about 90 minutes for a first-time charge.

    Everything considered, I give the Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 very high marks. I love this camera.
