The FinePix S9400 supports Wi-Fi, as do most of the other cameras of a comparable type and age to this digital camera.

There are a number of alternative cameras which support Wi-Fi currently available that you might want to consider including because of their better review scores, the 200, or the 150F both from Samsung.

Other Features

Has a Built-In Flash

has a built-in flash

The FinePix S9400 has a built-in flash. Most of the other digital cameras that came out more than two years ago also have a built-in flash.

We compared this camera to all the other digital cameras with a built-in flash and we think because of their better review scores, the Sony SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm, and the Fujifilm FinePix S4800 are also worth considering.

Display

Average Display Diagonal

At 3 inches, the FinePix S9400 has a pretty typical display diagonal compared to most of the other digital cameras of a comparable spec and age to this digital camera.

There are a number of other 3" screen cameras currently available that you might want to look at including the Sony SLT-A35Y + DT 18-55mm + DT 55-200mm, or the Olympus Stylus SZ-15 which both of have better reviews.

If you would prefer a camera with a larger display diagonal then you might want to consider the Leica T (£816.44) (3.7") which also has a higher rating.

Lens System

Very Big Optical Zoom

When compared to other cameras of this age and spec that we have assessed, the Fujifilm FinePix S9400's optical zoom of 50 times zoom factor is one of the biggest. The optical zooms of cameras of a similar age and spec to this digital camera range from 0.34x to 65x.

We compared all the other 50x optical zoom cameras to this digital camera and we think because of their better review scores, the S9200 (£218.79), and the S1 both from Fujifilm or the Olympus Stylus SP-100EE are also worth considering.

If you would prefer a bigger optical zoom then you might want to look at the Pentax XG-1 (£169.99) (52x), or the Canon PowerShot SX60 HS (65x).

Quite Small Digital Zoom

At only 2 times zoom factor, the Fujifilm FinePix S9400 has a very small digital zoom compared to most of the other digital cameras of a comparable age and type to this camera. Across all the similar spec cameras that were released more than two years ago the digital zooms range from 1x to 120x.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 2x digital zoom cameras currently available including the S9200 (£218.79), or the S8500 both from Fujifilm which and both of have better reviews.

Cameras with a bigger digital zoom that might be worth looking at include the DMC-SZ8 (4x and higher rated), or the Lumix DMC-TZ56 (4x and higher rated) both from Panasonic.
