The new Fuji S1: first Weather Resistant (water, dust) 50X superzoom
We have another attempt by a camera manufacturer to stress the benefits of a stand-alone digital camera. Fuji announced today (perhaps the world's first) weather-resistant superzoom digital camera. And by superzoom it is a 50x optical zoom 24-1200mm f2.8-5.6 with five axis image stabilization. The weather resistant is water-resistant and dust-resistant. It has both a 3-inch vari-angle LCD display on the back and an EVF (920k). Burst mode is up to 10fps. It has Wifi. It is powered by a lithium ion battery, not AA batteries like the S9400W/S9200). It also has a different 50x optical zoom lens. The S1 is an f2.8-5.6, while the S9400W/S9200 have a f2.9-6.5 lens.
