Fujifilm FinePix S8600

Fujifilm FinePix S8600

Okey first lets be clear about the prices. You can find two prices for this Fujifilm FinePix S8600 camera at Amazon. You can get Certified Refurbished model for less than $100 ( Plz check HERE for exact price ) Or you can get a new one for just less than $150 ( Plz check HERE for exact price ). These refurbished cameras are good as new too and you get same warranty.

This is a perfect offer for anyone who believe spending more than $150 for a digital camera is a crime or if your kid is badly want to be a photographer and you can't trust him with your high-end compact camera or DSLR. Quality is really good and you can say more than worth for the price you get. If now this camera wouldn't get more than 51% five star ratings and over 35% 4 star ratings out of total ratings. Plz click the above links if you want to read what other buyers say or to get full details from the sales page.

So lets see specifications of this camera,
  • 16MP 1/2.3-inch CCD Sensor.
  • Fujinon 36 x optical zoom lens (Equivalent to a 25-900mm).
  • Aperture F2.9(Wide) - F6.9(Telephoto).
  • ISO100 / 200 / 400 / 800 / 1600.
  • Shutter speed 1/4 sec. to 1/1500 sec (Auto Mode).
  • Shutter speed 8 sec. to 1/2000 sec. (All other modes).
  • 3.0-inch LCD Monitor.
  • Powered by 3x AA type batteries.
  • 720p HD Movie Recording
  • Can attach a tripod.
  • NO Hot Shoe.

So this camera is nice for average user who wants camera which can do more than average point and shoot camera. S8600 is cheap but it's still a bridge camera so it can take long distance photos which your average point and shoot can't do.

Can we compare with Canon SX60 or Nikon P900 ? Not really. Those are bigger, better and 3 times more expensive cameras. You can't compare model like this with those big guns. It's not fair. If you want something dead serious then go for Canon SX60 or Nikon 900 which has even better specs than SX60. Even Canon SX50 is more expensive and better. You can't find a camera like that for less than $300.

Okey maybe except for Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ70 camera which you can get for less than $300 and has 60x optical zoom, 1080p/60i HD video recording and a 16MP MOS Sensor. You can find latest price for DMC-FZ70 HERE.

But if your budget is something around $150 less and you are happy with a bridge camera which can perform better than other normal point and shoots in market then FinePix S8600 is for you. Sample photos can be found in Amazon sales page.
