Pairing a far-reaching zoom lens with a versatile imaging system, the Fujifilm FinePix S9800 Digital Camera features a 16.2 MP 1/2.3" BSI-CMOS sensor with an included 50x
optical zoom lens. The lens overlays wide-angle thru super-telephoto ranges with a
equivalent 24-1200mm focal length perspective, and 5-axis
image stabilization assists in minimizing the display of camera shake to create sharper, clearer images. Both high-resolution still photography and full HD video recording is available, while a top sensitivity of
ISO 12800 takes advantage of working in difficult lighting environments. A continuous shooting rate of 10 frames per second is available, while the processing capabilities of the S9800 also preserve quick handling performance all through the camera system.
Both a 920k-dot electronic viewfinder along with a 3.0" 460k-dot rear
LCD screen are standard for monitoring and image playback, along with wrangling the menu system for administering creative Advanced Filters, using the
HDR function, or creating in-camera 360° panoramic pictures.
16.2 MP BSI-CMOS Sensor
A 16.2 MP 1/2.3" BSI-CMOS sensor produces high-resolution stills and full HD 1080i/60 video, as well as contributes to notable sensitivity to ISO 12800 and a top continuous shooting rate of 10 fps. Additionally, the sensor pairs with an image processor to realize quick performance throughout the camera system, including a 1 second start-up time, 0.15 second autofocus time, and a 0.6 second shooting interval time.
Fujinon 50x Optical Zoom Lens
Covering wide-angle to super-telephoto perspectives, the Fujinon 50x optical zoom lens provides an equivalent focal length range of 24-1200mm to suit working in nearly any environment. Intelligent Digital Zoom can be used to effectively double this range to 100x, with minimal image quality degradation, to benefit working with very distant subjects. For working with very close subject matter, a Super Macro mode permits focusing as closely as 0.4" away.
Five-axis image stabilization combines both two-axis optical (pitch and yaw) and three-axis digital (roll, vertical shift, and horizontal shift) image stabilization systems, and helps to compensate for camera shake across all pertinent axes. This helps to realize sharper, clear imagery when shooting stills at slower shutter speeds or just maintain a steady frame when recording video on the move.
Inspired by the traditional form factor of a DSLR, this point-and-shoot features a large ergonomic grip to better support working with the long zoom lens. At the side of the lens, a lever is used to easily adjust the zoom position with your left hand while your right hand can be used to configure other camera settings. Additionally, both a 920k-dot electronic viewfinder and a 3.0" 460k-dot LCD monitor are available for monitoring and image review.
