Cameras, Tech Digest news

fujifilm-finepix-s8400w-top.jpgWildlife fanatics and Peeping Tom’s rejoice! Fujiflim have today launched the FinePix S8400W superzoom camera, letting you get up close to your subjects whilst keeping your distance with a 44x optical zoom lens.

The camera houses a whopping 24-1056mm (in 35mm terms) lens with optical image stabilisation, capturing images at 16MP. A BSI sensor allows for ISO up to 12,800, with burst shooting modes offering 10fps or, if you’re not concerned about a drop in resolution 60fps or 120fps.

A 3-inch LCD display sits on the rear, alongside full manual controls.

Adding Wi-Fi smarts to the S8400 first seen back at CES 2013 (hence the “W” tacked onto the end), the S8400W lets you beam images wirelessly to a PC, smartphone or tablet. You’ll need either the Fujifilm PC Autosave software or the Fujifilm Camera Application from the App Store or Google Play Store to access this feature. Once connected, you’ll then be able to push your shots to your favoured social media channels in a flash.

Set to be a Currys exclusive in the UK, we’re still waiting on pricing. We’ll let you know as soon as we hear of it.
