Combine Simplicity With Adventure

Fujifilm FinePix S9800 Digital Camera 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 35mm 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.
