|Zooming with the Fujifilm FinePix S2000HD
The start-up time of the Fujifilm S2000HD camera is average. There is a two second wait before you can take your first picture. Zooming is fast and in 20 steps you can zoom from wide angle to telephoto. It could be even more precise, if you want to frame an object up close, however, in general, 20 stops fine. Focusing is carried out fast and precisely. Taking close-ups in macro and ultra-macro mode is not a problem assuming there is sufficient environmental light.
Fujifilm FinePix S2000HD - F-button
If you have worked with a Fujifilm camera before, the Handy 'F' button will probably look familiar to you. This button offers access to various settings that are related to the image quality. Here we find ISO and image quality settings and also the so-called 'FinePix' effects like black&white, chrome and standard color settings. The Auto ISO settings are very convenient to make the camera automatically select the appropriate setting from a range of ISO settings with a predefined maximum. Other possible ISO settings are 3200 and 6400 ISO where the maximum resolution is set to 3 and 5 Megapixels.
|Action mode on the Fujifilm S2000 HD
Although the command dial of the Fujifilm FinePix S2000HD does not offer the A (Aperture) mode, the M (Manual) mode does enable users to change the aperture. It does not take long to determine why there is no A mode: there are only two options; maximum and minimum aperture, not something to cheer about for photographers. The action mode of the camera is far more interesting. At an impressive speed of 13.5 fps with a maximum of 33 pictures sequentially, in 3 Megapixel mode, users can take high-speed action pictures of children playing in the park is enabled. In practice, this is a useful function and the quality is good enough to print the captured image.
User friendly Megazoom digital camera
Using the Fujifilm S2000HD is quite easy. You don't need special photography skills and you will be able to use the camera right away with only an occasional glance at the user manual. The advanced user will only have to learn the definitions of the typical pictograms that might otherwise cause questions. Other than that, the menu is clear. Personally I would like to see a modernized version of the menu by Fujifilm, although others would probably disagree with me. All in all, the Fujifilm FinePix S2000HD is an easy to operate Megazoom camera; no specific skills are needed which makes it a suitable camera for everyone.
