Fujifilm has announced the FinePix S8600 bridge camera featuring a powerful 36x Fujinon zoom lens, a high-quality 1/2.3in 16MP CCD sensor, and a host of creative features, all wrapped up in a pocket-friendly body.

The FinePix S8600 will be available from February 2014, with an SRP of £149.99.

The S8600 features a newly developed three-step collapsible lens, which automatically retracts when not in use. This keeps the camera compact whilst still offering a 25-900mm equivalent 36x zoom. The camera also features a macro mode that focuses down to just 1cm for detailed close up images.

Scene Recognition Auto (SR Auto) mode recognises the subject you’re shooting (Portrait, Landscape, Night, Macro, Night Portrait and Backlit Portrait), and decides the settings required for optimal results.

Fans of shooting video won’t disappointed by the S8600. HD movies can be recorded at 720p/30fps in cinematic widescreen 16:9 format, then shared with friends and family on the big screen using the camera’s built-in mini HDMI connector. 

Alongside its P, S, and M shooting modes for full manual control, the S8600’s Advanced Filter (Adv) function can be selected straight from the Mode dial, which gives access to gallery of 10 artistic effects, including High Key (which enhances brightness and reduces contrast for subtle and beautiful tones), Low Key (for dramatic dark tones with few areas of emphasized highlights) and Toy Camera (that creates strong vignetting for a supremely arty look). For the ultimate in control, all of these effects can be previewed on the LCD before the shot is taken.
