|Fujifilm FinePix S2000HD digital camera review : One month before the kick-off of the Photokina show in Cologne, Germany, Fujifilm introduced a number of new digital cameras among which is the FinePix S2000HD. The Fujifilm FinePix S2000HD is a so-called 'hybrid' camera and is Fujifilm's answer to the increasingly popular digital SLR camera. Unfortunately Fujifilm lacks a broad DSLR camera line, (the S5Pro is the sole model) and Fujifilm fans will have to settle for hybrid Megazoom cameras such as the Fujifilm S2000HD.
10 Megapixel Fujifilm FinePix S2000 HD camera
The Fujifilm FinePix S2000HD features a 1/2.3 inch, 10 Megapixels CCD sensor mounted on a mobile chassis which acts as a stabilizer, so as to minimize camera-shake. HD stands for 'High Definition' a feature which will likely appeal to HDTV owners. The camera is able to record HD videos in a resolution of 1280x720 pixels and can photograph in a widescreen format of 1920x1080 pixels. The output of the S2000HD ensures sharp reproduction of both videos and still photos on an HDTV.
Fujifilm S2000HD equipped with 15x zoom
The compact size of the camera does not reveal the large optical zoom range of the lens. The 5x zoom starting from wide angle 27.6 mm to an impressive telephoto of 44mm adds to the all-round character of the Fujifilm FinePix S2000HD. The 2.7 inch sized monitor on the back provides a clear view of the pictures and videos as well as the menu of the camera, in a resolution of 230,000 pixels. Unfortunately the camera is not equipped with a vari-angle display, like the one on the FinePix S100fs, which is of course, Fujifilm's current flagship camera.

The Fujifilm S2000HD targets low-end of the entry-level consumer market and offers this group a camera a powerful combination of zoom including a stabilization system, compact size, High Definition support and fast-action photography.

"The FinePix S2000HD does not surprise and is a logical continuation of Fujifilm’s series of Megazoom cameras. Even though the Fujifilm FinePix S200HD digital camera has a compact size, the camera features a 15x optical zoom delivering a range of 28-414mm (equivalent of a 35mm camera). The Fujifilm S2000HD sample photos were taken with a full production camera which means that this camera is equal to the model that the consumer can expect to purchase. The Fujifilm S2000HD sample photos are taken in Amsterdam, The Netherlands."
