The S4800 bridge camera is equipped with a powerful 30x (24-720mm equivalent) FUJINON optical zoom. There's no need to worry about blurry images from camera shake or subject movement, as the S4800 is armed with OIS (sensor shift image stabilisation). Furthermore, on the other end of the scale, and for the more artistic amongst us, great results can be achieved with the clever Super Macro which gets you as close as 2cm from your subject.
The S4800 camera benefits from a 16 megapixel, 1/2.3 inch CCD sensor that captures even the finest details. Plus with the choice of six different scene types, Scene Recognition Auto mode can cleverly recognise the subject you're shooting, and decide on the settings required. Offering autofocus speeds as fast as 0.3 seconds* and start-up times of 1.3seconds * the S4800 will give you responsive, hassle-free photography.
Record HD movie 720P/30fps in 16:9 format, then share your memories with friends and family on the big screen, using the mini HDMI connector**. What's more with the clever Video Scene Recognition feature and a dedicated Video Recording button, you can leave the camcorder at home, and capture some great spur-of-the-moment footage!
This highly specified bridge camera comes with a whole host of features to make your photography more enjoyable, such as a mode dial for selecting P, S, A, and M modes and a large 3-inch LCD screen, for framing and viewing pictures.
