On the left side of the camera you'll find a door behind which are the USB 2.0 and A/V OUT connectors. Lower down on the left of this door is the DC-IN connector which is protected by a rubber 'plug'.


The S7000 features the same 6x optical zoom lens as the S602, 6900 and 4900. It's the extending type, that is at power up it extends from the main barrel to its normal operating length. It provides a 35 mm equivalent focal length range of 35 mm to 210 mm and an impressive maximum aperture of F2.8 - F3.1. That makes this lens not only useful (because of its 210 mm top end) but also fast, F3.1 is very impressive at this equiv. focal length.

Focusing and zoom are electronic (motorized).

Base / Tripod Mount

Kudos to Fujifilm for fitting a strong metal tripod mount in the middle of the base and in line with the center of the lens. There's plenty of base for even the most oversized tripod foot plate.

Pop-up Flash

The pop-up flash on the S7000 has a quoted range of 0.3 - 8.5 m (11.8 in - 27.9 ft) at wide angle and 0.9 - 7.9 m (3.0 ft - 32.2 ft) at telephoto. These figures are quoted at ISO 200, which is what the camera automatically selects when shooting with the flash in Auto exposure mode. Directly in front of the flash 'compartment' is the first part of the S602's AF system, the sensors behind this semitransparent window measure the AF distance 'roughly' and send the lens to that focus point, AF is then fine-tuned using traditional TTL contrast detect AF.

Flash Hotshoe

The flash hotshoe allows you to use external flash units or studio systems. The manual says "Flash units that can be used with this camera must meet the following three conditions: (1) The aperture can be set, (2) External flash synchronization can be used, (3) The ISO sensitivity can be set. The S7000 has an external flash white balance feature, go into the white balance menu, select manual white balance, aim the camera at a white sheet of paper and press the custom white balance button, the flash will fire and the camera will measure the white balance.
