Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 Reviews

Digitalcamerainfo reviews the Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 and writes;
“The SL1000 is a solid option for entry-level super-zoom photographers, and those looking to save a few bucks might well consider it over the similarly equipped Canon SX50 HS.”

Imaging-resource reviews the Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 and writes;
“the Fujifilm FinePix SL1000’s top video capture specification has been bumped from 720p to Full HD at 1080i 60fps with stereo sound recording. It can also capture super slow-motion video clips at 480fps with reduced resolution.”

Photographyblog reviews the Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 and writes;
“Despite our reservations about the noise, the image quality is very good. Taking pictures at low ISO will produce very high quality results.. The images are well exposed, sharp and colourful. The digital filters and effects are fun to use, such as Toy camera and Selective colour.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

CNET reviews the Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 and writes;
“Clearly the zoom is a massive draw here. It delivers almost unrivalled flexibility, and when paired with a decent tripod will let you get shots that simply aren’t possible with most of its superzoom rivals.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Ephotozine reviews the Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 and writes;
“When you consider the massive range of features on the camera, its price tag of £299.99 looks quite generous, this is also cheaper than the two other 50x optical zoom cameras available from Sony and Canon. If you want a camera with lots of zoom, the SL1000 is worth considering. Its feature set is comparable to a DSLR, so if you are looking for a camera with DSLR functionality without spending a large sum, again, the SL1000 is an ideal option.”
