10MP 15x Zoom
(Jan 09) £180
latest superzoom camera is the FinePix S2000HD, a 10-megapixel model with a 15x
zoom lens, sensor-shift image stabilisation for both still and video shooting,
and a HD video.
The S2000HD has
a plastic body, but thanks to the large lens and the four AA batteries inside
the handgrip it weighs more than its compact size might suggest, and it
certainly feels solidly made. The camera
is very comfortable to hold, and the controls are large and easy to use.
The monitor is sharp and bright, but the electronic viewfinder is not quite as good. Low light performance is excellent, however.
The S2000HD is
the first Fujifilm-camera since 2002 that doesn’t accept xD-Picture cards,
which Fujifilm co-developed with Olympus. Presumably this signals Fuji’s abandonment
of the xD format in favour of the cheaper and more popular SD/SDHC cards. CS
The S2000HD offers good value for the money.
