The Fujifilm FinePix S8600, announced at CES 2014, is a compact, yet long-zoom digital camera. So how does a camera with a 36x optical zoom (a 25-900mm 35mm equivalent) become pocket sized? According to Fujifilm, the S8600 "uses a newly developed three-step collapsible lens, which automatically retracts when not in use to leave a slim and stylish body that is extremely compact."

The S8600 also features a 16 megapixel CCD image sensor with sensor-shift Optical Image Stabilization, 720p HD Video Recording, a 3.0-inch LCD display, Face Detection auto focus for up to 10 faces, 10 Advanced Filter Effects, and a Mode Dial to give owners flexibility and access to manual controls and Burst Shooting.

Fujifilm FinePix S8600 Features:
  • 16MP 1/2.3" CCD image sensor
  • FUJINON lens with 36x optical zoom
  • 25-900mm equivalent
  • 3-inch LCD monitor (460k dots)
