Fujifilm FinePix S1600, S1800, S2500HD: Zoom into HD
Fujifilm has rounded out its superzoom range with the S1600, S1800 and S2500HD. Keep reading to find out just what's so goshdarned 'HD' about them
Rounding out this week'sFujifilmdeluge come the long-zooming Fujifilm FinePix S1600, S1800, S2500HD. They're a trio of 12-megapixel superzoom cameras, each with a 28mm wide angle, equivalent to a 35mm camera. The S1600 sports a 15x optical zoom lens, while the S1800 and S2500 pack 18x zooms.
All three models feature image stabilisation to stop your images getting all blurry from shaky hands. They all shoot high-definition video. The S2500 earns its HD tag with the addition of a mini-HDMI connection, allowing it to connect to an HDTV. That's a standard feature on most cameras these days so hardly seems worth an HD tag, but unlike the likes of Samsung, Panasonic and Sony, Fujifilm doesn't make tellies so doesn't usually bother.
Other new features to Fuji's bridge-camera range include smile and blink detection and automatic image rotation in playback mode.
