Fujifilm FinePix S1800

(May 2010)

Good value for a well specified camera.The superzoom Fujifilm FinePix S1800 digital bridge camera includes two fun and valuable features: Smile & Shoot Mode can recognise the precise moment your subject smiles and releases the shutter only when this happens, ensuring that all your photos are happy ones. Blink Detection warns you if any of your subjects have blinked so that you can re-take the photo if necessary.

What’s good about the Fuji 1800:

  • Excellent flash range
  • Lightweight
  • The price!

What’s disappointing:

  • Macro focus distance is only gripe
