Fujifilm FinePix S8300: 42 facts and highlights

1. megapixels

2. sensor size

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

3. continuous shooting at high resolution

Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.

4. weight

5. maximum light sensitivity

With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.

6. video recording

7. longer battery life

CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.

8. fastest shutter speed

A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.

9. width

10. has a built-in HDR mode

It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).

11. higher resolution (screen)

A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.

14. has built-in optical image stabilization

Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.

15. Can create panoramas in-camera

It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.

16. screen size

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.

17. has a flash

A flash is good for low-light environments, and can sometimes be used as flashlight.

18. has a two-stage shutter

A two-stage shutter is good for taking photos like a pro; apply pressure to the button in order for the lens to focus, and then press it fully to capture the photograph.

19. Has an electronic viewfinder

An electronic viewfinder (or EVF) is a small display showing the image. Benefits of these over optical viewfinders include: they show more of the image, they can be more compact, focusing is easier with digital zoom, and they can also sometimes have extra info on the display, eg. a live histogram.

21. has a BSI sensor

A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.

22. optical zoom

The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.

23. shoots raw

A raw image file contains minimally processed data from the image sensor. Raw files are so named because they are not yet processed and therefore are not ready to be printed or edited with a bitmap graphics editor.

24. has a CMOS sensor

CMOS image sensors are slowly replacing CCD sensors, due to reduced power consumption and better image quality. They can be very compact and cost relatively little to produce.

25. widest aperture

With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
