The FujiFilm FinePix S3200 may look like a digital SLR but is actually a new edition S-series long-zoom bridge camera that is well-regarded by both photography enthusiasts and professionals alike.
A bridge camera model slots between digital compacts and DSLRs by offering the finer points of both genres. This makes them ideal for photographers who like the simplicity of a compact digital camera but occasionally find it restrictive in terms of lens range and picture taking features and yet do not want to make the leap to a full-blown DSLR. These models, like the S3200, "bridges" between the two camera categories.

Take a closer look at the S3200 features:
The Wide 24mm, 24x Optical Super-Zoom Lens
With its mega 24mm wide-angle to 576mm telephoto lens, the Fujifilm FinePix S3200 can capture stunning images of practically anything - from a stunning landscape to a super-zoom close-up of a giraffe on a safari – not to mention the fact that you can take these two very different shots within seconds of each other. It’s highly flexible especially in comparison to shooting with a larger and bulkier DSLR, which then improves your reaction time when taking photos or recording movies so you rarely miss a great shot.

Fujifilm's attention to detail is evident in the electric powered zoom lever which is intelligently located next to the shutter button making it both accessible and simple to operate as well. With the promise of award-winning, high precision Fujinon optics, you can be rest assured that your photos will come out flawlessly practically every time.
Create Stunning Panorama Photos
|Final Panorama Photo|
Even at the longest zoom setting or in the most challenging of lighting conditions, the S3200 is capable producing pin-sharp results. Combining its mechanically stabilized 14 megapixel CCD sensor, high ISO sensitivity settings and Dual Image Stabilization technology, it greatly reduces the blurring effects of both hand-shake and subject movement to provide stunningly clear images. Additionally, you can easily create your own panoramic pictures. After selecting the Panorama mode, the S3200 will direct you to take three successive shots with a helpful tool that automatically releases the shutter once the images are fully aligned. Then, the three shots taken will be seamlessly stitched together in-camera creating your final incredible panorama photo.
Full HD Photos & 720p HD Movies
|HD Photo Quality|
The S3200 can capture full HD photos and 720p HD movies (30 frames per second). The photos/videos recorded can be played back on any HDTV – and once you've seen your home movies on a clear and big screen, there is no going back - it's just not the same on a computer screen! The S3200 also features a mini HDMI port so you'll just need a HDMI cable to connect to the HDTV (it is not included in the S3200 box) and you’ll have everything you need to enjoy your photos in the comfort of your living room.
More Organization & Less Searching
Have you ever struggled to find a photo you’ve taken on your camera amongst the hundreds of photos on your memory card? Avoid this problem with the S3200 Face Recognition tool that allows you to enter up to 8 people as “favorites.” Once categorized as one of your “favorites,” you can then tag them by their name and the S3200 will automatically register them when you are taking their photo. This allows you to search through all of your pictures of anyone you added by name by using the Image Search function.
|Auto Scene Recognition|
This works in the same way for other featured categories - Auto Scene Recognition technology registers whether you've taken a picture of a person, a landscape, or if it's a night shot or macro shot - so you can filter your search by subject matter, date or even straight to the photo you are after, quickly and intuitively.
|Micro Thumbnail View|
However, if you prefer, the S3200 will organize your photos into a quilt of thumbnails that enlarge when you rollover one, this way you can easily visually search through your images. It's a great time saver!
Easily Share Your Photos
If you happen to be one of the millions of people worldwide who uses social networking sites like Facebook or YouTube, then this could be the tool for you!
Fujifilm's easy-web-uploader allows you to decide in-camera which photos and videos you want to post on the web. You can tag them for Facebook and YouTube in-camera and then as soon as you connect to a PC, launch MyFinePix Studio software to automatically upload your photos. This feature is helpful especially when you are traveling because it saves the hours spent trawling through your photos on your computer to remember which ones you wanted to share with your friends and family.
The 3200 also comes with Photobook Assist , a feature that allows you to create a photo album in-camera. Easily accessible and mobile, you can share images with family and friends anytime, anywhere. Installed in-camera, you can create a Photobook folder where tagged images will be stored and organized accordingly. Your Photobook can also be ordered online for print when connected to the internet as well as when you go to stores to get your photos printed -images can easily be sorted when tagged.
