Do you want a consumer-friendly point and shoot digital camera with an extra long optical zoom lens? You’re in luck, because the Fujifilm SL300 is on sale for about half price on Amazon. It’s not quite an SLR, but it’s probably a lot easier to use and way more compact for the amount of zoom that you get.
As far as the features go, the Fujifilm SL300 boasts a 14 megapixel CCD sensor to go along with its Fujinon 30x optical zoom lens. This starts out at a wide angle of 24mm, zooming all the way in to give you a 720mm equivalent. The powered zoom has a 45-step zoom control, giving you a pretty good level of precision and accuracy too.
Other features include the 2cm super macro mode, 3.0-inch LCD, 720p HD video recording, and a TTL hot shoe. You can use this hot shoe for an external flash with teh built-in flash isn’t good enough for hte situation. There are also several scene modes, face detection, motion panorama, tracking auto focus, and built-in social networking.
You can find the Fujifilm SL300 on Amazon.com for $149.95, which is $130 (46%) off the regular price of $279.95. And yes, you get free super saver shipping too.
