The FinePix S2800 sports a 14 MegaPixel 1/2.3" CCD, a powerful 18x wide-angle optical zoom (28mm-504mm equivalent) and an extra large 3.0" high-contrast LCD. This FinePix model is a perfect fit for the advanced amateur photographer who wants an affordable, step-up digital camera that will still fit in the palm of his/her hand.
Great features spoilt by low light focus problem2/15/2011
I love the panorama feature...faultless. I love the other features...many and faultless. Excellent viewfinder and 3" screen. Tele / wide switch is a little mechanical, not very smooth. But works OK-ish. Zoom range is outstanding. Macro and super macro are excellent. However, for some reason that is known to many owners, the low light functionality of this camera leaves MUCH to be desired. It can barely focus in the dark...it appears confused and takes blurred shots, time after time after time. You need to determine if this is going to be an issue...for me its inconvenient, but the overall performance / price point is compelling.
