Fujifilm FinePix S4000 camera lens
With its mega 24 mm wide-angle to 720 mm telephoto lens, the Fujifilm FinePix S4000 can capture anything from a stunning landscape to a 30x zoom of a giraffe on a safari, and you can take these two very different shots within seconds of each other. It's flexible, and in comparison to someone carrying a D-SLR, you're able to react quicker and have to carry much less bulk. Fujifilm's attention to detail is evident in the electric powered zoom lever which is perfectly located next to the shutter button and is very simple to operate. For the Fujifilm FinePix S4000, the lens zoom has 45 different steps for you to stop while zooming so you can enjoy the smooth operation. With the promise of world renowned high precision Fujinon optics, you can rest assured that your photos are in excellent hands.
Panorama photos with the Fujifilm FinePix S4000
Even at the longest zoom settings or in the most challenging of lighting conditions, the Fujifilm FinePix S4000 camera is able to produce pin-sharp results. With its mechanically stabilised 14 megapixel CCD sensor, and high ISO sensitivity settings, Fujifilm's Dual Image Stabilisation technology combines to reduce the blurring effects of both hand-shake and subject movement to provide superb pictures. With the new Fujifilm S4000 you can easily create your own panoramic pictures. Just select Panorama mode and you will be directed to take three successive shots with a helpful tool which automatically releases the shutter once the images are fully aligned to seamlessly stitch the shots together in-camera. You'll be amazed at the results!
Record HD movies with the Fujifilm FinePix S4000
The Fujifilm FinePix S4000 digital camera captures Full HD photos and 720p HD movies (30 fps). These can be played back in all their glory on any HDTV - once you've seen your home movies on the big screen, there's no going back - it's just not the same on a PC! The Fujifilm FinePix S4000 features a mini HDMI port so you'll just need a HDMI cable to connect to the HDTV and you'll be all ready to enjoy your photos in the comfort of your sitting room.
Fujifilm FinePix S4000 camera features
Ever find it impossible to find the photo you are looking for amongst the hundreds of photos on your memory card? Fuji's Face Recognition tool allows you to enter up to 8 people as “favourites”. This allows you to “tag” them by name and the camera will automatically register when you are taking a photo of any of your favourite people. In turn this allows you to search for all your pictures of any of these people, by name, using the Image Search function. This works in the same way for other categories of photo: the camera's Auto Scene Recognition technology registers whether you've taken a picture of a person, or a landscape, or if it's a night shot or macro shot, so you can filter your search by subject matter or even date & get straight to the photo you are after, quickly and intuitively. It's a great time saver!
Share pictures online with the Fujifilm FinePix S4000
If you happen to be one of the millions of people worldwide that is into Facebook, then this could be the tool for you! Fujifilm's easy-web-uploader allows you to decide in-camera which photos and videos you want to post on-line. You can tag them for Facebook and YouTube and then as soon as you connect to a PC and launch MyFinePix Studio software it will automatically upload your photos. Perfect for when you're travelling, it saves the hours spent trawling through your photos on your PC to remember which ones you wanted to share with your friends and family.
