Edit: please don't vote cold because there are other cameras out there that have similar zoom and resolution for cheaper. This camera is in a league of its own. Bigger sensor, metal lens barrel, etc.

To get the equivalent zoom range on a dslr you'd need at least 3 lenses. More cost, more to carry, more hassle to switch lenses.

Review rating of 9.3 on reevoo: shopping.reevoo.com/p/f…-s1

In my opinion a very good price for the camera to start with, but this one comes with a 5 year warranty.

The perfect camera for me - I'm wanting DSLR features without the lens carrying / changes.

The Fujifilm X-S1 is their latest superzoom 'bridge' type digital camera. The Fuji XS1 features a robust, rubber coated black body houses the new 12.0 megapixel 2/3" CMOS EXR sensor and a powerful 26 x optical zoom lens (24-624mm). Take ultra sharp pictures with the aid of the superior performing lens and high performance processor. Features include a high quality electronic viewfinder, 3.0", 460k-dot tilt LCD, a 1080 full HD movie mode, RAW image capability and an array of custom functionality. The Fujifilm X-S1 weighs 945g and has dimensions of 135(W) x 107(H) x 149(D) mm. Compatible with the Fuji NP-95 lithium ion battery, SDHC and SDXC memory cards.

I really want to like these Fuji's but I wish they did a model would rather have a larger sensor and the expense of over the top zoom.
They make the best 'bridge' cameras though.

Having said that I think my second hand Nikon and 18-200 lens was less than this.

This has the same sensor and processor as in the X10. 2/3" - bigger than in the other cameras

Fuji's bridge cameras are neither here nore there. Sensors are too small and megapixels are to high. The last decent model Fuji produced was the F200. After that everything went down hill.

2/3" is still tiddly though.

You're not going to get a bigger sensor with this zoom range for this price anywhere else though

I nearly went for one of these but decided for the money the sensor was just too small. However it is a very good price for the model. Heat added.

I've got one and it does the job well. Very heavy though! and this is a decent price compared to elsewhere.

£449.99 here direct from Fuji, if you don't mind a refurb. Still has 12 month warranty and in my experience, Fuji Shop refurbs are as good as new. Still a good price for brand new though.
