Reasons For

13 Reasons For
26% higher megapixel count Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S8200 is a 16.2MP digital camera. That's 4.2MP higher than the Fujifilm X-S1 (12MP). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

35% bigger optical zoom Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S8200 is a 40x optical zoom digital camera. That's 14x bigger than the Fujifilm X-S1 (26x). Read more

The optical zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in to the subject using the camera's lens system. An optical zoom is superior to a digital zoom because the zoom is achieved using the optics of lens which means that the full extent of the digital sensor is always used to capture the image.

A larger optical zoom allows you to zoom in on the subject without having to move closer. Compared to a digital zoom, using an optical zoom does not result in a loss of image quality.

Smaller maximum aperture Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S8200 is a 6.5 maximum aperture digital camera. That's 0.9 smaller than the Fujifilm X-S1 (5.6).
A lot longer maximum focal length Edit
