22 Reasons For

Good Brand

Based on 3,935 owner and expert reviews, Fujifilm has good ratings for its digital cameras. Fujifilm also has good ratings specifically within its bridge camera digital cameras range.

Fairly Big Optical Zoom

The average optical zoom of bridge camera digital cameras that have been around for more than two years is 31x, and the optical zooms range from 1.3x to 65x. With an optical zoom of 50 times zoom factor, the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 has one of the bigger optical zooms amongst cameras of this age.

There are a number of alternative 50x optical zoom cameras currently available that you might want to look at including the Fujifilm FinePix S9200 (£218.79), the Canon PowerShot SX50 HS, or the Sony DSC-HX400 (£282.99) which has better reviews.

If you would prefer a camera with a bigger optical zoom then you might want to consider the Samsung WB2200F (£286.89) (60x), or the Canon PowerShot SX60 HS (£460.00) (65x).

Supports WiFi Connectivity

The Fujifilm FinePix S9400 supports WiFi connectivity, which is unusual. Most of the other digital cameras of a similar spec and age to the FinePix S9400 do not support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of alternative cameras which support WiFi connectivity currently available which you might want to look at including the Samsung NX30 which has better reviews.

We compared all the other digital cameras which also support WiFi connectivity to this digital camera and we think the Samsung WB2200F (£286.89) is also worth considering.

Supports Full HD Video

The FinePix S9400 supports Full HD video. Most of the other cameras that have been around for around the same time as the FinePix S9400 also support Full HD video.

We compared this camera to all the other digital cameras which support Full HD video and we think the PowerShot SX40 HS, and the PowerShot SX50 HS both from Canon or the Samsung NX30 which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Has a Built-In Flash

has a built-in flash

The Fujifilm FinePix S9400 has a built-in flash, as do most of the other digital cameras of this type and age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative cameras with a built-in flash currently available including the Nikon Coolpix L120, or the Canon PowerShot SX40 HS which has better reviews.

Has an Image Stabiliser

Like most of the other bridge camera digital cameras that were released more than two years ago, the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 has an image stabiliser.

We compared this digital camera to all the other cameras with an image stabiliser and we think because of it's better review score, the Nikon Coolpix L120 is also worth considering.

Fairly High Megapixel Count

The Fujifilm FinePix S9400 has one of the higher megapixel counts (16.2 megapixels) amongst bridge camera digital cameras of this age. The megapixel counts of cameras of a similar type and age to the FinePix S9400 range from 12MP to 21MP, and the average megapixel count is 16MP.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 16.2MP digital cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the Sony DSC-HX100V, or the Fujifilm FinePix S8200.

If this bridge camera camera megapixel count is not high enough for you then you might want to consider the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ1000 (£589.00) (20.1MP), or the Leica V-Lux (Typ 114) (£939.00) (20.1MP) which also has a higher rating.
