18X Wide Angle Optical Zoom
One of the largest zooms on a fixed-lens camera in the industry, the Fujinon 18x Optical Zoom provides unprecedented flexibility in a compact SLR body style camera. With a 27mm-486mm equivalent, the need for additional zoom or wide angle lenses is gone - this extraordinary lens is all you need.
Dual Image Stabilization
The FinePix S8000fd gives you the best of both worlds where image stabilization is concerned. With industry standard mechanical image stabilization, the photographers hand is steadied for a clearer, blur free shot. Add to that the addition of Fujifilms Picture Stabilization Technology, and increase clarity and sharpness is achieved, even in low light conditions or when shooting moving subjects. The combination of the two is the ultimate in stabilization technology.
Face Detection Technology with Auto Red Eye Removal
The S8000fd Finepix digital still camera features Face Detection technology by Fujifilm to significantly improve your picture taking by identifying human subjects' faces in the frame (up to 10 faces) and in real time, determining the optimal focus and exposure settings for the absolute best results possible in any shooting conditions. Behind Fujifilm's Face Detection technology is a newly developed LSI chip combined with patented software that allows the FinePix S8000fd digital still camera to reach a level of performance in digital photography never before possible. And the sophisticated, intelligent software algorithms detect red-eye and correct it in-camera. More than just red-eye reduction...this is red-eye elimination, after the image has been captured, to assure every picture looks its best.
Compact SLR Style Chassis
Like the feel of a big SLR but dont like the weight, changing lenses, or the price tag Then the S8000fd is for you. This camera offers much of the advanced functionality of bulky D-SLR cameras with none of the hassle or expense. The 18x wide angle Optical Zoom is all the lenses you need in one. And because it's fixed, there's no possibility of dust contamination.
Operates on 4-AA Batteries
The ultimate in convenience and accessibility, using AA batteries means in a pinch, more batteries are just moments away at any Drug Store, Convenience Store, or dozens of other retailers near by. Additionally, rechargeable AA batteries may also be used to extend the life and performance of the camera without purchasing disposable batteries over and over. Its truly the best of both worlds.
xD/SD/SD-HC Media Compatible Slot
