From the Manufacturer

The Fujifilm FinePix S8000fd digital camera features the world’s most powerful 18x long zoom Fujinon lens and our new Dual Image Stabilization system (CCD shift Image Stabilization & High Sensitivity).

The FinePix S8000fd is perfect for enthusiasts looking for a combination of 8 megapixels and stabilized long zoom in a neat, compact body. The S8000fd delivers one key feature that consumers cannot easily get on an SLR, a 27mm wide-angle to 486mm super telephoto (35mm equivalent) 18x zoom lens. Many consumers are looking for an easy to carry long zoom solution for sports events, concerts, wildlife photography, or just general tourism. Long-zoom photography is very popular for action shots of kids on the sport field, unobtrusive portraits of family or friends and candid nature photography. Using the digital zoom, the S8000fd can zoom up to an astonishing 91.8x magnification.

Fuji S8000fd Features and Highlights
Additionally, the S8000fd is fitted with Fujifilm’s newly introduced CCD-shift Image Stabilization, which automatically detects and correct for camera shake. It is also fitted with Fujifilm’s acclaimed Picture Stabilization mode, which uses high sensitivity to freeze fast action, or produce sharp pictures in low light. Fujifilm’s S8000fd Dual Image Stabilization offers enthusiasts consistently clean, well-focused, blur-free shots.

Making sure the perfect shot is captured Face Detection technology by Fujifilm uses an exclusive hardware-based system to optimize focus, white balance and exposure for up to ten faces in a single frame. Using Face Detection with an 18x long zoom means that users can accurately focus on faces from long distance and concentrate on framing the perfect shot. Also, leveraging Face Detection technology, the S8000fd feature the new Red-Eye Removal feature, which can detect and remove red-eye as the shot is taken.

The S8000fd offers ISO1600 at full 8.0-megapixel resolution, and ISO6400/ISO3200 at 4-megapixel resolution--so important for high-quality pictures in low light or freezing fast-moving subjects. The S8000fd takes advantage of this high sensitivity with Fujifilm’s Intelligent Flash system, which controls power output to achieve natural foreground illumination with balanced background exposure. Also, Dual Shot Mode takes two full resolution photos in quick succession - one with, and one without, flash. Both photos are then displayed side by side for quick comparison so users will never again be left struggling with flash settings long after the moment has passed.

Fuji S8000fd Features and Highlights
Face Detection in action
Face Detection technology The new 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.

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. It’s truly the best of both worlds.

xD/SD-compatible slot The Finepix S8000fd features an xD/SD compatible slot, allowing the use of either xD Picture Card or SD media to store and transfer your photos.

I did a lot of research before purchasing this camera. My major requirements were high quality photos and a zoom lens. I finally decided on this particular camera because it looked like I was getting a lot for my money, and I believe I have. I took it on a trip within a week of receiving it and took excellent scenic photos, both close-up and with the powerful zoom, with almost no learning curve. I was pleasantly surprised that even with all of its power, the camera is not heavy and bulky, and its design makes it easy to hold. I also love the size of the screen and that I have the option of using the viewfinder or the large screen. I highly recommend this camera.

I was hesitant to buy the Fujifilm S8000fd because there were a few reviewers who found problems with the pictures it produced. I considered other cameras in the same genera and discovered there were a few reviewers who were not all that happy with those either. It was clear to me that pictures shot with the Fujifilm S8000fd were at least equal to those made by its competitors and it had a lot more features and capacity.

I think the people who fault the quality of photos taken with the Fujifilm S8000fd are either unable to read the instruction manual or are so "picky" about their pictures as to be neurotic. I have had my Fuji S8000fd for about a month and find the pictures I am taking are just great. I am not a professional photographer, but I have been an advanced-skills hobbyist for decades.

This is my forth Fuji digital camera and it is the best of the bunch. I researched my head off prior to buying the S8000fd and concluded that it was the best in its class and price range. There are really only three cameras currently occupying this "hybrid-SLR" group--the Fujifilm S8000 of course, the Olympus SP-560 UZ and the Panasonic FZ18. For my money--the Fujifilm S8000fd wins.

By the way, the price on this camera on is almost fifty dollars cheaper than it was when I bought mine only a few weeks ago.

This is my first Fuji Camrea. I owned a Canon G2 for 5 years.

My Initial test on the camera was disppointing as I was shooting most pics in Low light condition in Auto Mode, P mode with very low ISO setting 100. I decided to return this camera.

Before returning I wanted to give it one more try with all combination of ISO and SP modes. I took lot of pics with differnt ISO setting in P mode and all Kinds of SP modes. In P mode I have got very good pics both in Low and Day light conditions.

Here is my recommended settings on P mode. In Bright Day lights Set ISO to 64. In low light conditions set ISO to 400 or 800 depending on the brightness of light. Set the Sharpness to HARD for Lowlight if you are lover of sharp pics. Also take pics by boosting the Exposure little bit if needed. Lowlight pics taken with these settings produced very less noise, vewing 100% on computer screen was not that bad at all. The Print qualtity will be still good if we stick to 6x4/5x7/8x11 size.

Get closer (4-6 Feet) to the object in Low light conditions even if you decide to use flash.

The AUTO and SP modes are not useful. The Pics taken with these modes shows lot of noise when viewing the Pic 100% on the computer.

Stick to P mode always in Day or Lowlight.

The Macro mode is very good, Excellent job done by the camera. I have shoot pics on morning dew set on the window in macro mode, I was stunned by the quality of the pics.

The Image Stabilizer worked very good.

The Face Detection works very well.

The N and N plus Flash is a very good feature on this camera.

WORTH THE MONEY. I cannot expect anything more on a NON SLR Camera.

This camera qualifies for 5 Star rating.

I have had the exact same experience as J.Maxwell's commnets above. Bought this camera to replace a 4 year old HP with 8X zoom and 4MP. I like to take wildlife and bird photos. The new Fuji does an excellent job on scenery, but can not take as sharp of pictures as my old HP of birds. I actually used them side by side and there is a difference in sharpness. Fuji suggests that I can't use the zoom without a tripod, since I am moving more than the "advanced" image stabilization can handle. Yet my old HP will work decent within the 40 digital zoom range beyond the optical zoom when hand held. I actually had the oportunity of a lifetime last week to take several pictures of a Bald Eagle eating a road kill deer. The bird let me get to within 18 feet and I took many photos with this new Fuji. The photos came out OK, but not as clear as a photo of an Eagle from 18 feet should be. It was suggested that background was bad and the camera had trouble with focus. My comment was that it was a 2 foot tall large black and white object against a light brown background of the deer and soil. Something easily focused on that my old HP would have made beautiful and produced several perfect shots. The camera does do a super job on macrofocus mode (super close up).

I have had this camera for about a week, the 4th fuji I've owned and am very pleased with all it can do. The camera is quite quick, and the different continues modes allows me to not miss the shots that I may have with a slower camera. The 18x zoom is a lot of fun, I can really see this being beneficial at my kids plays and performances.
It also seems to do well with indoor lighting. I suggest that anyone who ownes this to play with the different settings because auto a lot of the time doesn't give the best results. A lot of times I have been using the P mode and lowering the AUTO ISO to 400.
