The showpiece of the FinePix S9900W and FinePix S9800 is undoubtedly the Fujinon 50x optical zoom lens. Featuring a bright F2.9-F6.5 maximum aperture setting, the lens offers a huge 24-1200mm optical range that can be boosted to an incredible 100x magnification with Fujifilm’s Intelligent Digital Zoom technology. This range means no subject is beyond the reach of the cameras; even detailed close-ups are easy with a Super Macro mode that focuses down to just 1cm. The Fujifilm zoom cameras can start up in just one second, autofocus in as little as 0.15 seconds and then be ready to take another shot in just 0.6 seconds. Those wanting to capture a burst of full resolution images in quick succession can do so using the continuous shooting speed of 10 fps (maximum 10 frames).

Picture quality is assured thanks to the lens' optical construction. With both 3 aspherical and 2 ED elements used in the design, aberrations are minimised so users can be confident of high quality results throughout the range. Image sharpness is also enhanced by the lens shift image stabilisation system that reduces the effects of camera shake, especially at the longer zoom settings. Further stability is provided by the position of the zoom lever on the side of the lens barrel. This means the zoom distance can be controlled with the left hand while the picture is taken with right.
Fujifilm FinePix S-series cameras
Both Fujifilm FinePix S-series cameras also offer multi-frame processing that allows users to take two or more shots and then combine them for a High Dynamic Range (HDR) image, plus there's an Interval Shooting function which automatically fires the shutter at regular intervals defined by the user. Pictures can be taken up to 10 minutes apart for a maximum shooting time of 6 hours. All images can either be composed and played back using the rear LCD or the built-in electronic viewfinder (EVF). With 920k dots, the EVF in both FinePix cameras is exceptionally bright making it easy to check shots, even on bright days.
