Fujifilm FinePix S2950 Highlights
FUJINON Zoom Lens and Dual Image Stabilization for Sharp, Clear Shots
The FinePix S2950 packs an 18x zoom with an impressive wide angle 28mm-504mm high-precision FUJINON optical lens in a simple-to-operate zoom lever, allowing a huge range to capture every detail, whether shooting stills or movies. With the combination of the mechanically stabilized sensor and high ISO, blurring effects of both hand-shake and subject movement are reduced to provide superb pictures.
Stunning Panoramic Shots
The FinePix S2950 features the easy-to-use Motion Panorama shooting mode, which takes 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. No matter how basic the photographer's skill, this feature allows users to get creative and see impressive results with no fear of uneven landscapes or shaky horizons.
HD Movie Capture
Capture stunning movies in 720p with sound at 30 frames per second with one touch ease. With a mini-HDMI output connector, it is easy to connect and view images on your HDTV (HDMI cable not included).
Perfect Pictures Every Time with Smile and Blink Detection
Smile Detection recognizes the moment your subject smiles and releases the shutter only when this happens, ensuring a happy photo every time. Additionally the Blink Detection function warns you if any of your subjects have blinked so that you can re-take the photo if necessary.
Social Networking and Photo book Features
In-camera tagging capabilities for both Facebook and YouTube, allowing you to select photos and movies for upload on either of the sites, making for easy upload once you connect to a PC and launch MyFinePix Studio. The feature saves you time and enables you to share your special moments with your closest social network.
The FinePix S2950 also allows you to tag in-camera the images you want to feature in a Photo book, which can be viewed separately in-camera and later created and ordered in a Photo book quickly and seamlessly.
- Tracking Auto Focus (AF): Tracks fast moving subjects so they don't escape from the frame in a blur. Subjects will be tracked automatically for as long as it is kept in the frame and the shutter is half-pressed; when users fully press the shutter button your subject will be in the centre of the photo in perfect focus.
- i-Flash Intelligent Flash: Offers a flash control system which efficiently controls the level of flash for a given exposure to produce beautifully balanced flash illumination across the foreground and background. Gone are the ugly washout shots where the subject is blasted with light and the background dark and unexposed.
- Full Manual Controls: Gives the user the choice of direct access to manually control the settings and shooting features, and the specially designed chassis includes dedicated command buttons for quick and easy key functions.
- Instant Zoom/Zoom Bracketing: Useful for high level photography. The Instant Zoom function captures moving subjects at high zoom settings. After zooming on a subject, a single button gives an additional 1.4x or 2x digital zoom. Zoom Bracketing automatically captures the same image three times with zoom ratio settings of 1x, 1.4x and 2x with a single shutter release.
- Continuous Shooting: Allows up to 8 fps for 20 frames in S mode.
- AA-Battery Power: Using AA batteries is convenient for on-the-go digital camera users as it eliminates the need to charge battery packs, allowing for lots of picture-taking and the ease of battery replacement.

The firmware has some glitches like it randomly turns on the speaker while in picture taking modes and makes white noise.
The lens cap falls off for like no reason.
The flash goes off a half dozen times before it actually takes the picture (so everyone is blinded and has their eyes closed in pictures).
Very poor stabilization. Unless you are rock steady you're going to need a tripod.
Aperture only has 2 settings.
Focus doesn't work without good lighting. Also, no option for manually focusing - you'll never get a good shot of something on a transparent surface (like a spiderweb or writing on a window or stuff like that because it will just focus on the background).
If you try to zoom in and out in video mode, you're going to have a bad time.
Uses tons of batteries...it takes 4 AA which weights like a pound and they die so damn fast.
Although I don't like how heavy it is, I like the solid construction (low manufacturing tolerances).
It really does take nice pictures with outdoor lighting.
All said, if I was buying the same price-range and style camera I'd get the Nikon L820; it's the same price, better zoom, higher resolution, more functional, lighter, better video...
If I had to price the S2950 on value, I'd say $90-120 max. Fujifilm didn't do their quality control on this one.
-Excellent 18x zoom with wide angle lens.
-Stunning outdoor photography in daylight.
-Solid indoor photography with flash, or in well-lit rooms.
-A strong flash. Can light up a large, pitch black Cathedral-style church.
-Very good picture quality in video mode; 720p.
-Optional pop-up flash. Not having to go through the menu every time to turn off the flash like I'm forced to do with my Canon is a plus.
-Good grip to the camera. It feels comfortable in your hands.
-Uses 4 AA batteries (highly recommend rechargeable).
-Nice battery discharge feature.
-Large LCD screen.
-Quick start up time. Fairly quick shot to shot time, save when using flash.
-High ISO available.
-Continuous shooting available.
-Poor indoor low-light photographs.
-Camera zooming and autofocusing are LOUD in video mode.
-Panoramic shots often do not stitch well.
-No manual focus.
-The auto white balancing leaves a lot to be desired.
It's certainly not a professional camera or a perfect one, but it's a very good camera that most would find appealing. Very easy to use, and takes solid pictures except in low light. Looks spiffy too!
