Trusted Reviews tested out the Fujifilm Finepix S8100fd, which seeks to replace the DSLR. The camera is ideal for those who want to break free from point and shooters but don’t want to get into the hassles of DSLRs.
The Fujifilm Finepix S8100fd is lightweight, fast and produces decent image quality. It offers a multitude of features that would only enhance the photography experience and the long focal length of the lens ensures that one doesn’t need crave a DSLR. However noise was apparent in ISOs higher than 400 and the EVF is a major disappointment.
"Image quality is hit-or-miss, with horrible high ISO images and some aggressive sharpening. At lower ISOs images are better, but I find the majority of images too digital looking, lacking the finesse of some other models."
