Fujifilm FinePix S3200This week I thought I’d try something different and post some links to reviews that are particularly interesting, starting with the Fujifilm FinePix S3200 – a budget 24x optical zoom lens ultra zoom camera, available for £140 from Amazon UK, it features a 14 megapixel sensor, a 3 inch screen, 720p video and manual controls. You can read several reviews, from ePHOTOzine, Photography BLOG, as well as view sample videos on YouTube. It’s also the little brother to the Fujifilm FinePix S4000 (you can find a review here) – a very similar ultra zoom bridge camera, except the S4000 has a 30x optical zoom lens and is available for £175 from Amazon UK.

Panasonic Lumix TZ18Another ultra-zoom that’s popped up on the radar this week, is the Panasonic Lumix TZ20 and TZ18 – the TZ18 is available for only £140 from Amazon UK, you can read a TZ18 review here, both pocket-zoom cameras feature a 16x optical zoom lens, 14 megapixel sensor, 3inch screen, with the TZ20 featuring built in GPS and touch screen – you can read a TZ20 review here. Both cameras have been replaced by newer models, which means these are available for noticeably reduced prices – the higher spec TZ20 is available for £190 from Amazon UK.

“Fujifilm announces today (05/01/2011) that its S-Series long-zoom “bridge camera” range is being extended to include 2 new models. Highly regarded for their ease-of-use and compact nature, and featuring sought after EVFs; the new additions to the bridge camera line-up have tele-photo capabilities of up to a 30x superzoom.”

Fujifilm FinePix S4000

“The NEW S3200 and S4000 cameras both boast high resolution 14 megapixel CCDs, award winning Fujinon optics, 24mm wide-angle lenses, are intuitive and easy to operate and are packed full of useful features and technologies. The main differentiator between the two cameras is their zoom capabilities: 24x on the S3200 and a huge 30x on the S4000.”
