Fujifilm FinePix S8200 Vs Fujifilm FinePix SL1000


Jul 19, 2014
Just a quick question before I have to leave. Fujifilm FinePix SL1000 has 50x optical zoom for a price of $260. And the Fujifilm FinePix S8200 Has 40x optic zoom for $200. Is the optical zoom the only difference? If It is I'll just go with the S8200. Have a good digital camera under $300 that you think I should get? Please tell me. (I like zoom)

Thank you,

Fujifilm FinePix SL1000:
◾16.2MP 1/2.3" CMOS Sensor
◾Fujinon 50x Optical Zoom Lens
◾35mm Equivalent Focal Length: 24-1200mm
◾3.0" 920k-Dot Tilting LCD Monitor
◾Continuous Shooting: 10fps
◾Equivalent ISO 64-12800
◾Full HD 1080i Video at 60fps
◾Super Macro Capabilities
◾Lens Shift Image Stabilization
◾Advanced Filters and SR AUTO Modes

Other than the zoom, other differences include the 35mm Equivalent Focal Length difference (which may be the difference between the 40x zoom and the 50x zoom), a 920k-dot tilting LCD monitor vs. a 460-k-dot tilting LCD monitor, and optical vs. lens shift stabilization.

Looking at the tech specs from the Fujifilm web site the image sensor appears to be the same in both cameras.
