Fujifilm have recently announced a new model to their arsenal of pretty decent hybrid or bridge cameras, namely the SL1000. The big selling point of the SL1000 has got to be the huge zoom capabilities offering 50x optical zoom WITH image stabilisation. Very impressive!
It’s a 16 megapixel camera and with the lens you’ve got an equivalent focal length of 24-1200mm. That’s some serious magnification. Unlike a number of Fujifilm’s previous bridge cameras, such as the finepix HS30, the SL1000 uses a lithium ion battery pack rather than AA batteries.
I’ll be adding it to the site soon, so keep your eyes peeled.
