Fuji S1800 12.2 Megapixel Digital Camera

Let’s talk about a great camera for its price. The Fujifilm S1800 is a new super-zoom digital compact camera that looks and feels like a DSLR and is inexpensive. Featuring an 18x zoom lens with a 28-504mm focal range, 12 megapixels and a 3 inch LCD screen, the Fujifilm S1800 offers full manual photographic control for the more experienced user and an Automatic Scene Recognition mode for beginners. For movie makers the S1800 has the must-have feature of 2010, high-definition 720p video recording at 30fps.

There’s also a panoramic mode that stitches together 3 photos side-by-side automatically in the camera for an ultra-wide view, a tracking auto focus to get sharp pictures of moving people or objects, face detection that maximizes exposure and focus for faces in your images, and even a blink/smile detection mode that eliminates blinks and catches smiles. This is a camera you may never outgrow.

High Sensitivity + CCD Shift Image Stabilization
Dual Image Stabilization is the combination of high sensitivity and CCD shift image stabilization that works to eliminate blurred photos by freezing action and minimizing blurs at maximum zoom range.

High Sensitivity (Max. ISO 6400)
Maximum sensitivity of ISO 6400 lets you take natural, lifelike photos, even with limited available light. And high sensitivity also lets you stop the action, even when the subject is moving at high speeds. At ISO 3200 and 6400, number of recorded pixels is limited to a maximum 3 megapixels. At full resolution (12 megapixels), sensitivity is limited to a maximum ISO 1600.

HDTV-Compatible Photos & Video
Able to capture both photos and movies in high-definition 16:9 format, the FinePix S1800 lets you discover the impact of full-screen HDTV image display.

SR AUTO & Face Detection
Framed scenes are automatically detected and selected into appropriate camera settings: Portrait, Landscape, Night, Macro, Night Portrait, and Backlit Portrait.

Face Detection
Face Detection optimizes people pictures by identifying faces and adjusting focus and exposure to ensure bright, clear results. Red-eye removal automatically detects and corrects flash reflection for a perfect end result.

Blink/Smile Detection
The camera will warn you when people in the frame are blinking, giving you the option to retake the photo, or enlarge the face so you can save or delete the image before you take the next shot. The Smile detection function of Scene Position, automatically releases the shutter when the smile appears so you won’t miss the adorable smile the moment they happen.

Tracking Auto Focus
Keeps fast moving subjects in the frame and in focus, even when the zoom is fully extended.

If you are looking for a great camera this might just be the one for you.
