You can tell the Fujifilm S100FS is no ordinary long zoom digital camera the minute you take it out of the box.
It has the build of a digital SLR, slightly bigger in fact than the Canon Rebel XSi. It operates like a digital SLR, too, with a manual zoom ring and buttons instead of menu items to get to oft-used items. But the Fujifilm S100FS is not a digital SLR. The 28-400mm lens is not interchangeable, and you compose your shots via the tilting LCD or electronic viewfinder. The Fujifilm S100FS has a movie mode just like a consumer digital camera, and its 11.1-megapixel sensor captures excellent detail. Its big lens has a very good Macro mode and great overall performance, but we were disappointed by the pronounced chromatic aberration that mars an otherwise impressive digital camera. Still, the camera's wide and long zoom offers the ability to bring only the camera along on your next trip, making the Fujifilm S100FS an intriguing hybrid.
