Fujifilm FinePix S100 FS digital camera

A bridge camera that offers bags of DSLR features

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

On the left-hand side of the body are buttons for the drive mode and image stabiliser, and a focus selection switch which lets you quickly change the focus system from, for example, continuous to manual mode. There’s also a flap covering power, AV and mini USB sockets.

On the top is a hot shoe, large mode dial - you can switch between various modes, including, auto, manual and movie - exposure compensation button; ISO button; a command dial which, depending on what mode you’re in, lets you quickly change parameters such as the shutter speed; shutter button and power lever.

The LCD screen can be tilted for shooting at various angles

At the back are a 0.2in electronic viewfinder and a 2.5in LCD. The LCD screen can be tilted for shooting at various angles. Nearby are buttons for selecting LCD or EVF; metering mode - multi, spot, average; AE Lock; playback; face detection; display; plus a selector dial for functions such as flash, macro and self timer. At the right-hand side is a flap for an xD, SD or SDHC card - the camera also has 25MB of internal memory - while at the bottom is a battery cover for the lithium-ion battery.

In terms of features, the S100 FS offers a 2/3in Super HR VIII CCD with 11.1 million pixels. This certainly beats the size of CCD size you get on an ordinary compact, but it’s not quite in the big league when compared with many DSLRs. You can shoot both JPEG and Raw images, and the maximum resolution is 3840 x 2880 pixels - the lowest is 640 x 480 (VGA). Movies can be shot in VGA or QVGA (320 x 240) resolution at 30f/s.

The normal ISO range is from 100-3200, but you can also shoot at ISO 6400 if you select a 6Mp resolution or lower, and there’s even a jaw-dropping ISO 10,000 at 3Mp or lower. Shutter speed ranges from 30-1/4000 second, except in auto mode where the slowest speed is 0.25s. You can shoot up to 7f/s in JPEG format or 3f/s in Raw, and there’s also a high-speed continuous mode, which shoots 7f/s at 3Mp file size.
