Fujifilm has announced two new long zoom S-Series digital cameras with 30x optical zoom lenses, 16 megapixel image sensors, HD video recording, 3.0-inch LCD displays, full manual exposure controls (P/S/A/M), and the ability to run on four AA batteries.

So then, if so similarly appointed, why does the dSLR-styled FinePix S4800 cost about $20 less than its sibling, the S6800? Simple, the S4800 has a CCD image sensor, which is only capable of recording 720p HD video. The S6800 has a CMOS image sensor, which is capable of higher resolution 1080/60i video and is a little more dynamic in lower lighting conditions.

  • FUJINON Super zoom lens (24mm wide-angle to 720mm telephoto lens, f/3.1 to 5.9)
  • 16MP 1/2.3" CCD sensor
