Fujifilm’s latest super-zoom digital camera, the XS-1, has hit UK stores.

A darling of this year’s CES show, the bridge camera features a Fujinon 26x optical zoom lens and the EXR CMOS sensor, which can also be found in Fujifilm’s top-notch X10 compact.

Shooting 12MP stills and Full HD video at 30fps, the X-S1’s fixed lens has a range of 24-624mm (in 35mm terms) and max aperture levels of f/2.8. Thanks to Fujifilm’s Intelligent Digital Zoom engine and you can double the focal range without any noise added to the picture quality, for a zoom level of 1,248mm.

On the rear you’ll also find a 0.47 inch electronic viewfinder, with a 3-inch LCD preview screen that hits a 460k dot resolution.

In shops now, you can pick up the X-S1 for £699
