With a generous 18x Fujinon optical zoom lens, the S2950 really packs a punch, especially when matched with its 14 megapixel sensor, large 3.0" LCD screen and 720p HD (30fps) movie capture.
Electric powered Fujinon 18x zoom lens
The S2950 sports an impressive 28mm – 504mm* high precision Fujinon optical zoom lens. Simple to operate with an electric powered zoom lever, the huge zoom range means that you can capture all the detail, even when you're at a considerable distance away. You can even operate the zoom during video shooting. Unlike a bulky D-SLR, bridge cameras allow you great versatility of zoom, without the hassle of carrying a bag of lenses.
With its easy to use Panoramic shooting mode you can get creative on the S2950, however basic your skills, and rest assured that you will not risk shooting uneven landscapes or shaky horizons. The camera enables you to take three successive shots with a helpful tool which automatically releases the shutter once the images are fully aligned to seamlessly stitch the shots together in-camera. It's so easy and the results are impressive.

Sharp, clear shots
Even at the longest zoom settings or in the most challenging of lighting conditions, the S2950 is able to produce crisp, clean results. With its mechanically stabilised 1/2 3", 14 megapixel CCD sensor, and high ISO sensitivity settings, Fujifilm's Dual Image Stabilisation technology combines to reduce the blurring effects of both hand-shake and subject movement to provide superb pictures.
Advanced HD capabilities for Both Movies and Stills
For the complete viewing experience, the FinePix S2950 is HD enabled and can therefore play-back both HD stills (Full HD) and movies (720p) in superb quality on any HDTV. It's yet to become the standard method of viewing photos, but it’s certainly not to be knocked. And given that this camera has a mini HDMI port it's very quick and easy to connect it up to a HDTV* and play back your photos on the big screen.
*Mini HDMI cable required (not included)
Frown or blink and the picture's spoilt
Not anymore! With Fujifilm's Smile and Shoot mode the camera can recognise the exact moment your subject smiles and releases the shutter only when this happens, ensuring that all your photos are happy ones! Additionally the Blink Detection function warns you if any of your subjects have blinked so that you can re-take the photo if necessary.
Facebook/YouTube easy web upload
NEW in 2011 for the S series range of cameras is Fujifilm's easy web upload function. It allows you, in-camera, to tag pictures for speedy upload to Facebook and YouTube once you connect to a PC and launch My FinePix Studio. A great time saver, it allows you to organise your photos when you're on the move!
Preserve your memories for longer by creating a Photobook!
The S2950 allows you to select in-camera the images you want to feature in your Photobook; this task is particularly simple if you have already star-rated your favourite photos! You literally tag the images that you want to have in your photo book & select which one you want for the front page and then when you are ready to order the book it's a much quicker, easier task. You can also simply enjoy viewing the selected images in an in-camera Photobook with pages that turn! Great fun.

I hope this will have been useful to you. Thank you for reading this review.
Speed is important to me - I find burst shooting really useful when trying to capture family moments. This was something I found very frustrating on the 1600 - it took ages to process and store burst mode pictures. The 2950 is better but still not great, even with a class 10 SDHC card. It still takes ages before the camera is ready to shoot again - even if you only took a single image.
The 2950 really wins over the 1600 in low light. The 1600 seemed to rely heavily on high ISO settings for image stabilisation, which meant that I got a lot of very noisy pics. The 2950 is miles better in that respect and I'm generally pleased with the indoor pictures I've taken so far.
I say generally because all the images seem to be very slightly soft and there's too much blue which makes them look quite cold and pale. It seems as though the automatic white balance doesn't work too well. It's nothing you can't tweak out later but obviously that takes time. Alternatively you can choose a white balance if you're not using either of the automatic shooting modes. There's a good choice of preset ones or it's really easy to set your own, but I can't help feeling that I shouldn't have to.
The 2950 still suffers from the same lack of choice of aperture settings in semi-automatic modes as the 1600.Read more ›
First off, taking the camera straight out the box and snapping a photograph indoors (or in other low light situations) on the fully automatic mode will likely produce an unimpressive result. This will be due mostly to a very noisy image. This camera will reach ISO speeds as high as 6400 but it is not recommended to go above 200 as said noise starts to become very apparent (on the automatic mode the camera sets an ISO of around 800 when indoors or in other low light situations and this is detrimental for picture quality).
Increased noise level at ISO's above 100 is one of the consequences of squeezing 14 million pixels onto a small sensor and afflicts virtually all 'compact' camera's (and the S2950 is a compact with bells and whistles) with very high megapixel counts. High resolution DSLR's overcome this with larger sensors that create much less noise for a given ISO. You can greatly improve things with compacts by keeping to low ISO's and using the flash in poor light. I also recommend setting the colour mode on the S2950 from the standard mode to the Fuji chrome mode for more saturated colours.
I have dual image stabilisation switched off as this works by raising the ISO speed to increase shutter speed (supposedly to eliminate blur) and I take better quality pictures without it (the camera still has single CCD stabilization). Having a steady hand also helps.
The S2950 has nine resolution modes...
L - 14 megapixels (4:3)
L - 12 megapixels(3:2)
L - 10 megapixels (16:9)
M - 7 megapixels (4:3)
M - 6 megapixels (3:2)
M - 5 megapixels (16:9)
S - 3 megapixels (4:3)
S - also 3 megapixels (3:2)
S - 2 megapixels (16:9)
