The Fujifilm FinePix S4000 is a compact digital camera that wants to pretend, because of its size, to be a DSLR. Addressed to all users who wish to venture timidly into the territory of the superzoom but still maintaining the familiarity of a compact series. A 14-megapixel CCD sensor, 720p HD video recording, a display 3 “LCD and a 30x optical zoom, make the S4000 a camera worthy of note. Pious If we add the fact that the sale price is around 279 , $ 95 / £ 299.99, then it will certainly be able to attract a slice of sgurdi a wide enough audience.

“This Fujifilm has developed with the FinePix S4000 is a decent superzoom camera for a budget price. A 30x optical zoom means the chance to photograph all those people who are too far away for most of the cameras, including other superzooms . The style of the camera is attractive, has a nice style that also has sufficient quality construction. There is always an open debate on the correct choice in adopting AA batteries than lithium ion, but in this case we had no problems whatsoever. Duracell batteries that we have obtained in support of S4000, were sufficient to last the duration of the test and there are versions of rechargeable lithium batteries in AA format available on the market, so the controversy is entirely superfluous.
The camera gives a good feeling of use, thanks to a nice design. The generously sized handle, you can shoot with one hand. We like how the buttons and switches are within reach, but we have a very real indeed to do with this camera, we would have preferred to find the zoom control ring positioned in the barrel, to get a better feel for manual control, rather than the version usually find the switch located near the shutter button.
The picture quality is good when viewed at normal distance or seen on a photograph of standard size, but when the print is large, an effect that appears we can only describe as a painting. If you can bear it, the colors are very well developed and there is a fair amount of detail. We are sure that the sensor used does not allow better performance, and that’s what he did say that Fuji could have adopted the EXR sensor in all cameras.
The Fujifilm FinePix S4000 is ideal for photographers who have experience with a digital SLR or for those who want to experience everything a DSLR can do but without the cost or weight of an SLR. For the quality of the images have a look at the example images in the review and decide if you like what Fujifilm is able to do. A did not like much, but things like this can be subjective. “
