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)
  • HD movies at 720p/30fps
  • Sensor Shift Optical Image Stabilization
  • Face Detection (up to 10 faces)
  • Mode Dial (P/S/M and Burst Shooting mode)
  • 10 Advanced filters for creative effects
  • Mini HDMI output

The compact Fujifilm FinePix S8600 -- available in black, white, or red -- will hit streets in March (2014) with a budget-friendly MSRP of $229.95
