A Point and Shoot with DSLR Qualities

Fujifilm FinePix S4500 The FUJIFILM FinePix S4500 Digital Camera is a point-and-shoot with DSLR tendencies. The most notable would be the 24-720mm (35mm equivalent) 30x optical zoom lens, which gives you the flexibility to shoot super-close-up macros or distant telephoto shoots without changing your position. Other features of this lens include the professional grade Super EBC coating that reduces ghosting and lens flare and the 42-step zoom control for smooth transitions.

Working with the lens would be the Dual Image Stabilization, which reduces motion and blur for clear, clean images. Additional DSLR tendencies include the electronic viewfinder and a large 3.0" LCD monitor. Of course, the S4500 also shoots 720 HD video, just like the big boys. And in a step towards convenience, the camera is powered simply by 4 AA batteries, which are easily found at most grocery stores, and in many other locations.

Leaning back towards its point-and-shoot core the S4500 comes equipped with a bevy of auto modes that take the guess and check method out of taking pictures. Just choose the mode that is appropriate for your situation and let the camera do the leg work! From Scene Recognition modes to Blink Detection to Tracking Auto Focus, the choices are both numerous and beneficial. Additional examples include date stamp function, instant zoom, and zoom bracketing.

When you're done shooting, the S4500 continues to support you in your quest for great images. The many post-production features on the camera help you to do things like tag files for upload to social media sites, once the camera is connected to your computer, or to automatically upload new images for sharing. There are also a number of playback functions - By Date, By Face, By Upload Mark - that work to make your life easier, once the shooting is complete. Jan 5, 2012
