Networking

Supports Wi-Fi

The FinePix S8400 supports Wi-Fi, as do most of the other cameras that have been around for around the same time as this camera.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative cameras which support Wi-Fi currently available including because of it's better review score, the 200, or the 150F both from Samsung.

Display

Fairly Large Display Diagonal

At 3 inches, the Fujifilm FinePix S8400 has a quite large display diagonal compared to most of the other cameras that were released around the same time as this digital camera. The display diagonals of similar spec cameras that were released more than two years ago range from 2" to 4.8".

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3" screen cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm, or the NEX-6Y both from Sony or the Samsung SAMSUNG DV300F.

If you want a camera with a larger display diagonal then you might also want to look at the Df (£2,039) (3.2"), the D4 (£4,225) (3.2"), or the D4S (£3,379.99) (3.2") all from Nikon which is also higher rated.

Across all the digital cameras that were released around the same time as this digital camera the optical zooms range from 0.34x to 65x. At 44 times zoom factor, the FinePix S8400 has a very big optical zoom compared to most of the other medium megapixel digital cameras that are a comparable age to this digital camera.

Cameras with a bigger optical zoom that might be worth looking at include the S8500 (46x), the S1 (50x), or the S9200 (£218.79) (50x) all from Fujifilm which is also higher rated.

Very Small Digital Zoom

The FinePix S8400 has one of the smaller digital zooms (only 2 times zoom factor) amongst similar spec cameras of this age. Digital cameras of this type and age have digital zooms of between 1x and 120x.

We compared this digital camera to all the other 2x digital zoom cameras and we think the Fujifilm F800EXR which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this medium megapixel camera digital zoom is too small for you then you might also want to look at the DMC-XS3EG (4x and higher rated), or the DMC-TZ35 (4x and higher rated) both from Panasonic.
