Product Review: Fujifilm X-S1 Camera


Fujifilm X-S1 Camera

About: FujiFilm X-S1 Camera is a digital camera that allows for still photography and video recording to an SDHC memory card.

Use cases: 12-megapixel camera with 26x manual zoom and a 3-inch monitor for use in surveillance and documentation through photos.

Why did you need the product?

Surveillance and crime as well as motor vehicle collision scene photography.


What worked?

Everything. While it can do ten times what I need (read: "can figure out") what I have needed thus far has been idiot-proof.

Additional Comments:

I'm not sure if I'd leave this running on video for hours on end, like picket line surveillance, for example, but a $700 point-and-shoot, with blue-ray quality video and 20x zoom, this is one darling little toy.
