FujiFilm FinePix S1 Pro Review
Flash Pop-up & Hot-Shoe
As it's based on the F60 the S1 Pro inherits the same pop-up flash, rated at 2.2 - 10.3m @ ISO 320, F2.8, it'll give a good enough range to be useful for snapshots and casual occasions. If you're shooting something more important then there's also the flash hot-shoe for connection one of Nikon's excellent speedlights (or a third party flash system). The hot-shoe (AKA. accessory shoe) has connections for simple flash, TTL automatic flash control and ready light contacts. Note that Nikon's SB-28DX speedlight which was specially developed for digital SLR's will act as a normal SB-28 when connected to the S1 Pro.
AF Assist Lamp
Between the top of the hand grip and flash housing is the AF assist lamp, this will illuminate the subject to assist focusing in low light situations (it also flashes to indicate self timer) it has a usable range of 0.5 - 3.0 m.
