Fujifilm Finepix S2950 Summary
Fuji Finepix S2950 Assessment
The Fuji Finepix S2950 provides photographic controls in a relatively compact ultra-zoom digital camera featuring a stabilized 18X optical zoom lens and a 14 megapixels sensor for an affordable price. This digital camera sits at the low end of the S-series range yet it packs the same features as the S4000 which has a 30X ultra-wide angle zoom instead. This makes the S2950 the least expensive ultra-zoom to include full manual-controls including custom white-balance and spot-metering, both an EVF and an LCD, HD video and be powered by standard AA batteries.
