The Fujifilm Finepix S2500HD Digital Camera (Black) is a whole lotta camera--12 megapixel resolution, an 18x zoom lens (28-504mm 35mm equivalent) for shooting everything from landscapes to wildlife and sports, 720p HD video with sound, and dual image stabilization plus sensitivity up to ISO 6400(*) to give you sharp, beautifully exposed pictures in any kind of light.
Face detection, blink detection and smile detection help you capture the best pictures possible of friends and family, by recognizing your subject and exposing the photo when they're smiling, but not when they're blinking. The SR Auto Scene Recognition will know when you're shooting a portrait, landscape, macro shot, backlit portrait, night photo or night portrait, and optimize all settings automatically for those situations, including activating the automatic flash. Tracking auto focus and an easy-to-use panorama mode are professional features not commonly found in point-and-shoot cameras, but you got'em with the S2500.
But, what if you're the kind of hands-on photographer who needs to choose exposure, focus, etc. for yourself? For you, my friend, there is full manual control.
