FinePix S8600. Providing the combination of a 36x zoom, fast autofocus and Full HD video capture, the pocketable S8600 features a 16MP sensor. The camera uses a newly developed three-step collapsible long-zoom lens, which automatically retracts when not in use to leave a slim, compact body.
Its 25–900mm focal range helps shoot sharp images of everything from wide-angle landscapes to detailed close-up pictures with its super macro mode.
