Fujifilm FinePix S1

16 megapixels | 3 screen | 24 – 1200 mm (50×)

I am a Freelance Aviation photographer & I use the Fuji S-1 Bridge camera as a back up to my Cannon EOS 70D camera . I have to use the Cannon for Aircraft in flight as the Fuji is a little slower on the shutter with fast moving objects.

I have owned this camera for around a year and are generally very pleased with it. OK it's not a big sensor and therefore the results does not compare with my DSLR and my mirrorless cameras. But it can do a number of things, that is completely impossible with my other cameras. It took it as my only camera on a trek in the Himalayas autumn 2014 and got some awesome pictures using its magnificient zoom.
