Fujifilm outs FinePix S1, a toughie bridge camera

Apart from having an incredible zoom range, the FinePix S1’s lens also comes with a respectable aperture range (f/2.8 – 5.6), not to mention a 5-axis image-stabilization which helps in minimizing blur even in slow shutter speed.

Other notable features of the FinePix S1 include a 1080p video recording, built-in WiFi chip, as well as an EVF and 3-inch Vari-angle LCD screen which both has 921K-dot resolution.
