Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

The S2800HD is officially the world's smallest 18x zoom camera! Following in the S2500HD's footsteps, this camera has an impressive feature set, which combines a generous 18x Fujinon optical zoom lens, with a small lightweight body. This camera, although aimed at serious photographers, still allows you to have some fun. The Smile and Shoot mode is able to recognise the exact moment your subject smiles and Blink Detection warns you if any of your subjects have blinked. You will be pleased to find that, at the longest zoom settings or in the most challenging of lighting conditions, the S2800HD is able to produce crisp, clean images and HD movie results.

Powerful 18x zoom

The S2800HD bridge camera sports an impressive 28mm – 504mm high precision Fujinon optical zoom lens. This range allows you to capture all the action, both from a considerable distance away and at a great width; from the most cinematic of landscapes to the wildest of wildlife - the FinePix S2800HD has the ability to take it all in its stride. The new Instant Zoom function even allows you to follow moving subjects in standard wide view for easy framing.

Delightfully Easy Panoramic shots

Fujifilm's new Panoramic shooting mode cleverly eliminates the risk of uneven landscapes or shaky horizons. Simply select Panorama mode and start shooting, then align the + symbol into the circle and the shutter will automatically release to seamlessly stitch the shots together in-camera. The result is stunning panoramic shots perfect for framing and hanging on your lounge wall!

Tracking Auto Focus
Lock onto moving subjects and keep them in focus

Get focused

This function is ideal when photographing fast moving subjects or action shots, as the Tracking AF will 'lock on' to moving subjects and keep them in focus. Simply half press the shutter button and Tracking AF will track and keep focus on your subject. As soon as you fully press the shutter button you will capture a photo with the subject perfectly in focus.

Sharp, clear images

Even at the longest zoom settings or in the most challenging of lighting conditions, the S2800HD is able to produce crisp, clean results with lavish colour and effects. Fujifilm’s impressive stabilisation technology combines the 14 megapixel CCD sensor and the high ISO sensitivity settings to reduce the blurring effects of both hand-shake and subject movement to provide superb pictures.

Good Low-light Performer

Photos taken in low light are often the most disappointing. The S2800 features impressive ISO sensitivity to 6400* meaning it is ultra-sensitive in dim conditions and able to record impressive detail and true to life colours with minimal noise. You can also select the ISO settings manually, so if it's a nice, bright sunny day you can select a low ISO (e.g. 100), or if conditions are dark, high ISO settings will be better at picking up detail.

* At ISO 6400, number of recorded pixels is limited to a maximum 3 megapixels. At full resolution (14 megapixels), sensitivity is limited to a maximum ISO1600.

Pristine Portraits

Beauty is no longer just in the eye of the beholder; the S2800HD has got two new exciting features that work with Fujifilm’s Face Detection system. The Smile and Shoot mode only releases the shutter when your subject smiles and Blink Detection warns you if any of your subjects have blinked so that you can re-take the photo. See example above.

Advanced HD image capabilities

For the complete viewing experience, the FinePix S2800HD is HD enabled and can play-back both stills (1080p) and movies (720p) in superb HD quality. On the big screen your images will appear crisp and even more true to life, a perfect way to share memories - and show off a little! Additionally, the FinePix S2800HD features a mini HDMI port so it's quick and easy to connect to a HD ready TV via a mini HDMI cable. (Type C cable required, sold separately).

6 Scene SR AUTO

As well as the range of great detection functions, the S2800HD has 6 Auto captures meaning framed scenes are automatically detected and selected into the appropriate camera settings: Portrait, Landscape, Night, Macro, Night Portrait and Backlit Portrait.

I had this for my birthday back in september and to be honest i was only half happy with it. I found it a fantastic camera at night with flash shots, i couldnt have been more happy actually. However in natural light the picture was truly appauling in all and EVERY mode. It was pixelled and just seemed forced. I had a few weeks where i just wanted to sell it and went no where near it. Fortunately the shop where i work at sees varied customers and it just so happened that one of them was a local professional photographer and he gave me some amazing heads up about what i should do. First of all, this camera even on auto sets the ISO to 400...turn it down to 200. The quality will quadruple! Anything above 200 or 400 then itll just be useless!

I wont go into all the details that i faffed with but so long as you dont mind playing around with the settings (and make sure its on 200 ISO for general shots) then you are all set!!

Hopefully i can be of some help to people who are considering this camera, any questions are welcome!

I brought myself this camera for Christmas based on the reviews and praise it got and yes I agree, in auto it's a great camera but then saying that aren't all 14Mp cameras. The over ride functions aren't quite the same as the old 35mm cameras and without the flash, indoors the pictures are grainy, so its flash every time, haven't been able to get some nice focused long range shots but macro seems great, excellent detail, also the HD video works great but with the mike so close you pick up all the noise around you. If you want something you can take straight forward photos and when you have time read the indepth manual for more tweeks and added effects then this is the camera for you, plus all the extras, of face recognition, blink detection, camera stabilization, actually all of it, takes 300+ shots easy on one charge, and thats flicking through and showing people what you taken on the large screen as well. Great added feature is the panoramic mode, cross hair lines each picture up seemlessly.

Downside: you can't add any filters,

Value for money: YES!

The Finepix logo on this camera is in gold and as they say "All that glitters....."

I have owned 4 fuji finepix cameras over 9 tears and have recently used an excellent S1500 as a companion when not out with a full strength Canon 5D DSLR. I have always been pleased with design and results and so when looking to move up from my S1500 this was my obvious choice.

The spec is unbelieveable as is the size of this camera. Thats unfortunately where it ends.
Two problems ruin this camera totally.

(1) Sensor noise, even at low ISO's
(2) Restriction of only two working aperatures (F3.1 & F6.4 at best, F5.6 & F11 at worst).

These in my opinion combine to give over exposed and underexposed shots even in full auto mode with blurring of detail. Due to lack of intermediate aperatures, either detail is limited to the strict area of focus or slow shutter speeds exagerate camera shake.

In what could have been a brilliant camera that flies off the shelves, Fuji have created a white elephant here that most people will return for a refund like I did after perservering over a weekend. Maybe over emphasis on HD video has made the designers lose their way here. Luckily my S1500 is still working well.

Stick to a S1500 or S1800 (10 or 12MP) and you will not be dissapointed.
Alternatively wait until a decent compact 14MP sensor becomes available with less noise.

I purchased this camera last September as an upgrade for my Fuji S8000fd.

The HD video is great, you get some noise from the zoom when used in video mode and the sound isn't perfect. Having said that, it's a camera not a video recorder.

Using the camera in auto mode is hit and miss; I always keep it on P mode with my preferred manual settings. It took me a little while to get the best out of the camera but the image quality still can not compare to my previous cameras.

In good light the image quality for a compact camera is quite good but lacks a little sharpness, however, low light/indoor photography is quite poor compared to S8000fd.

The focus is poor too. It is very unreliable and very slow - this is the main reason why I am looking for a replacement as it is becoming very frustrating.

The Macro and Panoramic photography is quite good though.

If you are looking for a point and shoot super zoom camera then I am sure this camera will suit. If you want to achieve that little extra, there are better bridge cameras on the market.

My scores are as follows (out of 5):

Ease of use: 4
Features: 4
Lowlight: 2
Macro: 3.5
Overall Image quality: 3
Movie: 4

I bought this camera before a trip to Paris and as some reviewers had a negative feedback, I was hoping that they were wrong and I was not disappointed.
I have to say that I am not a professional photographer, but after using this amazing camera I am seriously thinking of taking photography lessons to enjoy this hoppy. Absolutely loved its photos and although I am not familiar with all its potentials, but the automatic setting was more than enough to take some of the best shots that I have ever taken in my life. The panoramic shots are just unbelievable and I could not image how disappointed I will be if I was not able to take some of these shots in Paris. The video recording was also very good, however, as I was recording on HD setting, the size of the footages were too large and using large spaces of the memory card.
all in all, I completely agree with the ones who think that this camera is a very good one for the non professional and a good introduction to "real" SLR cameras.
