More Fun with Fuji! – FinePix S9900W

In my opinion, the Fujifilm FinePix S9900W is one of the finest bridge cameras made – period. It’s also the only one I’ve used so my opinion and general “love” of all things from Fujifilm cloud my judgment.

I purchased this wonderful camera for general use in my home studio shooting pictures for this blog and for listings in my online camera shop.

Pairing an expansive zoom lens with a versatile imaging system, the FinePix S9900W Digital Camera from Fujifilm features a 16.2 MP 1/2.3″ BSI-CMOS sensor along with a 50x optical zoom lens. The lens covers wide-angle to super-telephoto perspectives, and a 24-1200mm equivalent focal length range, and 5-axis image stabilization helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake for sharper, clearer imagery. With respect to the image sensor, both high-resolution still shooting and full HD video recording is supported, and a top sensitivity of ISO 12800 benefits working in difficult lighting situations. A continuous shooting rate of 10 fps is available, and the processing abilities of the S9900W also maintain quick handling performance throughout the camera system. Additionally, built-in Wi-Fi connectivity enables seamless sharing of imagery to mobile devices as well as wireless remote control over the camera using the Fujifilm Camera Remote app.

Covering wide-angle to super-telephoto perspectives, the Fujinon 50x optical zoom lens provides an equivalent focal length range of 24-1200mm to suit working in nearly any environment. Intelligent Digital Zoom can be used to effectively double this range to 100x, with minimal image quality degradation, to benefit working with very distant subjects. For working with very close subject matter, a Super Macro mode permits focusing as closely as 0.4″ away.

Five-axis image stabilization combines both two-axis optical (pitch and yaw) and three-axis digital (roll, vertical shift, and horizontal shift) image stabilization systems, and helps to compensate for camera shake across all pertinent axes. This helps to realize sharper, clear imagery when shooting stills at slower shutter speeds or just maintaining a steady frame when recording video on the move.

It’s such a versatile camera and I hate selling it but my camera collection needs to be thinned out a bit. It’s in my camera shop at if you’re interested. Thanks for stopping by, Chris
