A slightly cheap-feeling build and a rudimentary menu system give the SL1000 the feel of a point-and-shoot poured into the body of a compact bridge camera.
It's hard not to notice the SL1000's relatively cheap feel. For a $400 super-zoom, it's not a deal-breaker, but compared to other Fujifilms in the same class—such as Fuji's own HS50 EXR and the Canon SX50 HS—it's hard to overlook.
