Fujifilm FinePix S2950 review - Features
Despite featuring a low price tag, the Fujifilm FinePix S2950 has the specification of a serious shooting. An 18x optical zoom features, covering a focal range of 28 - 504mm in 35mm equivalent terms, which itself is supported by mechanical sensor based stabilisation. The sensor itself is of the 1/2.3in CCD variety, offering a resolution of 14MP whilst also featuring HD movie capture at a resolution of 720p and 30fps. The movie capture is bolstered with some extra functionality. The S2950 supports easy upload to either Facebook of YouTube through the supplied MyFinePix studio software, while those looking to simply view their videos and images on a larger scale can output to a TV or suchlike using the integrated mini HDMI port. Other elements of the specification include a large, although disappointingly resolute, 3in 230k-dot LCD screen that is accompanied by a 200K dot resolution EVF. Shooting functionality is offered through PASM modes, although a host of scene recognition functionality is also present, as is motion panorama and other such capture modes.
