“The new FinePix SL1000 is ideal for those looking for the widest range and flexibility of a fixed lens camera” said David Troy, director of marketing, Digital Cameras, Electronic Imaging Division, FUJIFILM North America Corporation. “With its new 50x lens (24-1200mm equivalent) and super macro ability, the SL1000 has you covered from less than 1” to extreme telephoto shots without ever having to move, or change out any lenses like an interchangeable lens system camera.”

The camera is known for the key features like fast autofocus and high speed response times. The FinePix SL1000 uses a 16MP BSI-CMOS sensor with the ability to shoot at sensitivities as high as ISO 12800, so that users can capture high quality images even in low light conditions. The SL1000 also achieves autofocus speeds as fast as 0.2 seconds, a startup time of 0.9 seconds and continuous shooting mode at 10fps at full resolution (max 9 frames)for quick action and a better overall shooting experience.

The headline grabbing feature of the camera is the Extreme Long Zoom along with Powerful Optical Image Stabilization. The FinePix SL1000 uses a newly-developed 50x optical FUJINON zoom lens (24-1200mm) with a fast aperture of F2.9-5.6 and a powerful new Optical Image Stabilization that reduces the effect of blurring at longer zoom lengths. Moreover, the zoom doesn’t stop at 1200mm, instead, with the Intelligent Digital Zoom,  the focal length is effectively doubled to 2400mm or an incredible 100x with absolutely stunning results. The SL1000’s FUJINON lens has 17 elements in 12 groups, and the lens combines aspherical and ED elements for reduced aberration and superior image quality. FUJINON’s unique Super EBC coating technology is employed to reduce ghosting and flare for sharp results in challenging low light shooting situations, and is capable of super macro photography as close as 0.39” for maximum flexibility.

The FinePix SL 1000 comes up with a bright and easy to use tilting LCD screen. The camera has a highly detailed (920k-dot) electronic viewfinder (EVF) that is perfect for helping frame shots in bright sunshine. With its eye sensor, the SL 1000 is able to switch automatically between the EVF and the 3.0” tilting LCD (920k-dot) screen.

In addition to the standard zoom toggle controls on the top of the camera, a second zoom lever is placed on the side of the lens barrel, allowing you to adjust your zoom range with your left hand while your right index finger rests on the shutter button, ready to take the shot. Choose from three zoom speeds or use “auto return zoom” for long zoom photography. The mode dial makes choosing a shooting mode easy – P, S, A, and M modes can be selected at the twist of a dial for sophisticated photographic techniques using manual exposure control.
