From the Manufacturer

Fujifilm's SLR-style FinePix S4000 digital camera delivers 14 megapixels, a FUJINON 30x zoom lens, and dual image stabilization. It also features a large 3-inch LCD and Electronic Viewfinder, plus a number of image and social features allowing enthusiasts and professionals alike the ability to capture crisp, clear shots up-close, wide and far away.

Fujifilm FinePix S4000 Highlights

30x FUJINON Zoom Lens and Dual Image Stabilization
The FinePix S4000 packs an amazing 30x zoom with a super-wide 24mm-720mm optical lens, allowing users to capture anything from a stunning landscape to getting up close to a shot when you can't get close thanks to the super zoom capabilities. 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.

The FinePix S4000 also includes a Dual-Image Stabilization CCD sensor and high ISO sensitivity settings for blur-free images.

Stunning Panoramic Shots
The easy-to-use Motion Panorama shooting mode 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.

Face Recognition and Image Searching
With Face Recognition, users can tag and name eight of their favorite subjects and the camera will automatically recognize that person in every photo taken thereafter. In turn this allows you to search for all your pictures of any of these people, by name, using the Image Search function. Image Search, found on all three cameras makes finding the people and places you've photographed easy to categorize and find.

This works in the same way for other categories of photo: the camera's SR Auto Scene Recognition technology registers whether you've taken a picture of a person, or a landscape, or if it's a night shot or macro shot, so you can filter your search by subject matter or even date and get straight to the photo you are after, quickly and intuitively.

Social Networking and Photo book Features
The FinePix S4000 offers 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.

You can also 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.

Additional Features

  • 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.

Fujifilm FinePix S4000 14 MP Digital Camera with Fujinon 30x Super Wide Angle Optical Zoom Lens and 3-Inch LCD

I have owned a DSLR camera for sometime (Canon Rebel T1i) and wanted something I can take to places like the beach without hauling around the lenses, tripods, and the worry of damage to a $1000 camera. I want a fun, have a camera ready on the fly type of scenario...

Yes, its not a DSLR CANON or a NIKON or you would have bought one. So dont expect the same here. You get what you pay for and remind you this is ONLY a $230.00 camera...NOT A $1100 Canon with all the bells and whistles.

I have read many terrible reviews for this Fujiflm camera. But for me, I LOVE this camera for the PRICE and for just GENERAL USE - not pro use...its great for being with the family and not concerned about shutter speed...Its a great "family" camera. The picture quality of the camera great. Outdoors and Indoors. The zoom 30x is incredible, and VERY STABLE at 30x too..WHILE HOLDING IT! Very clear shots and you cant do that with a Canon unless you are on a tripod. The HD video is great too.

The Panorama setting is very cool. I love the wide angle screen shot. Video is great. Only thing I have found so far that is not to my liking is if you leave the lens cap on, the camera will tell you there is a problem and forces you to turn off the camera and on again. You just cant take the lens off and go. You have to shut it down. Not a big deal but annoying.

Picture quality is beautiful I think. For a simple point and shoot with HD Video and Panoramic viewing PLUS a 30X zoom...its AWESOME! MY Canon will not allow zooming in ideo mode where this camera will. You can ZOOM in and out while taking great video and the sound is great too.

Great camera! I purchased this camera to replace an older model high-end point and shoot. It has a 30X zoom lens that allows you to get photos from a distance that are sharp and clear. I consider myself decent amateur photographer. I hike a lot and take the camera with me all the time. Landscapes and wildlife are my most common types of photos. On my first outing with the camera, I was able to get a photo of a bald eagle that was at least 1000 feet away. I especially like how much feedback the camera gives you while focusing. It will tell you if the focus isn't correct, if the picture will be blurry, if someone blinked, and a lot more. If you're used to using pocket point and shoot cameras, this will be an easy transition. Two features I especially like are the electronic viewfinder and the use of AA batteries for power. Using the setting for high resolution photos, I still get 300+ photos from one charging of the NiMh batteries. While this camera doesn't have the range of adjustability of an DSLR, it takes photos that look just as good. My only disappointment is the camera software. It isn't nearly as sophisticated as the camera. My old Olympus camera software is about 5 years old and is far superior. Fortunately, there's lots of photo software out there to use. I would recommend this camera.

I purchased the Fujifilm S4000 after disappointment with a compact high zoom camera from Olympus (VR310). The S4000 was a bit of an impulse buy as I had not read any reviews. After getting it home and reading reviews, I was confused. Some are good, others not so much. I decided to put the camera to use and try it out.

I found that the camera is very suitable for my needs. I like to shoot snapshots of friends and family either indoors or outside. At times, I like to shoot landscapes, sports and wildlife. In the short time that I have owned the camera I have found it meets my needs and mostly exceeds my expectations.

No camera is truly automatic and can magically create a good photograph if conditions are poor. The same is true of this camera. If lighting is low (dusk) and I am utilizing the zoom too much (kids in the pool 30 feet away), then chances are the result will not be a great shot (well focused, but grainy). If the subject is too far away from the flash, again no camera can compensate for that. Notably, this flash is pretty strong and I would rate that as a "pro" for this camera versus most point and shoot cameras.

Good images are the result of good conditions and knowing your equipment. The S4000 is very easy to use and I read the entire manual in short order and felt I was well informed. I have taken 400 images and some have been great. I have discarded some too, but mostly because the conditions were poor; not because of the camera.

I have found the camera is reasonably fast at focusing, though slower at full optical zoom. I think that is to be expected. It also has a reasonably short shutter lag and recovers fast enough between shots. I utilize a Fuji 4gb SD card that I formatted in the camera.

My critique is based on comparing the Fujifilm S400A to the Fujifilm HS10. All comparisons are also based on setting both cameras to Automatic mode. First let me say that both cameras take great outdoor pictures. Indoors is another matter. The S4000 is a lot slower then the HS10 in focusing and exposure settings. I also do not like the indoor auto white balance on the S4000, even with forced flash. The S4000 indoor pictures look yellowish. With the HS10, the flash is dominant and the pictures are more vibrant in my opinion. The resolution on both cameras is good (when the pictures are in focus). The HS10 has much better and faster focusing. The S4000 is not nearly as good. With the S4000 you have to take it slow when taking indoor pictures in order to get a focused picture. The motorized zoom on the S4000 is better then the HS10's lens for shooting video. The manual zoom on the HS10 will shake the camera when zooming so your video will look jerky. The S4000 zoom motor noise will be heard in the video unfortunately, but only slightly. The amazing plus for both cameras is when zooming in to the max and being able to hand hold the camera and get a perfect shake free picture. I took the HS10 to Hawaii and shot a light house at full zoom while sanding on a small boat. I got a great detailed picture. I have also shot full zoomed in pictures with the S4000 and got great results. I am disappointed that the S4000 does not have a hot shoe or threads on the lens for a filter, whereas the HS10 has both. Physically the S4000 smaller and much lighter then the HS10. For Video, the S4000 has a better video format, Motion Jpeg which is more compatible with editing software. The the HS10 has the terrible MOV format that I hate. I am sure I have not covered everything, I am a Nikon camera fan.Read more ›
