    Fujifilm Finepix S1000fd

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    If you travel and you want a good camera that will provide you with some high-end features without breaking the bank, you could do worse than the Fujifilm Finepix S1000fd. Though not the newest camera on the market, this "hybrid" model offers some DSLR features you wouldn't expect in something this inexpensive. Join our roving reporter on a trip to the big city to see what he thought of it.


    So I'm visiting New York City for the first time, and needless to say, the sights and sounds are quite impressive everywhere you turn. Walking around the Big Apple without a decent camera in hand is a mistake for any tourist, so I decided to swing over to J&R Computer World near Ground Zero to find the best deal possible on a digital camera.

    Since my budget was about $300, I could instantly rule out any kind of DSLR camera. I still wanted a DSLR-like camera, though, so I began searching through the “hybrid” cameras – most of which feature substantial zoom capabilities, high mega pixel resolution, and many of the features that you'd find in a DSLR. I came across the Fujifilm Finepix S1000fd, and it seemed like a perfect fit. It was a 10 MP, 12x optical superzoom with a decent sized 2.7-inch LCD display, and it was relatively compact as well. As a matter of fact, the Fujifilm S1000fd became the smallest 12x optical zoom camera on the market when it was released back in April of 2008.

    For around $230, I was able to purchase the S1000fd, and for an additional $40 I picked up a nice camera bag and 2 GB SD card. By the way, this camera does accept xD cards, but I've always been an SD card kind of guy. So for a grand total of about $270, I was ready to take New York City by storm with my new Fujifilm Finepix S1000fd.
