Fuji now has several 18x models at lower prices than the S8100. Check out the S1800. Here's what we had to say about the S8100 when it was released in April 2008:

Those who want the flexibility and focal length of an SLR with the automatic convenience and budget of a point and shoot may want to look at the Fuji FinePix S8100fd. It comes with an 18x optical zoom with dual image stabilization, face detection and a wide variety of image storage options.

Fujifilm Reviews

Being among the first creators of the compact camera, Fujifilm is one of the world's most significant imaging and photographic companies. Fujifilm launched the DS-1P in 1988, gaining credit for the first real digital camera widely available.

Most of their latest advanced cameras use an X-Trans sensor, which eliminates the need for an optical low pass filter by reducing moire with the arrangement of pixel units instead. Eliminating the optical low pass filter means there's less between the lens and the sensor, which translates into better resolution and detail.

Fujifilm digital cameras are famous for their natural image color, wide dynamic range, low noise and high sensitivity. It's hard to go wrong with a Fujifilm X mirrorless camera. Models like the X-M1 have an affordable price, yet sacrifice the right features in order to reach that price. Models like the X-T1, on the other hand, are packed full of the latest, greatest features on the market.

Fujifilm is about more than mirrorless though, offering several fixed lens cameras that are good options as well. Their super zoom cameras are usually a pretty good bet. They also offer a waterproof XP line, but they're more of a budget camera than a best-in-class option.

Fujifilm has also recently joined the retro camera craze, giving many of their models a retro film look with all the features of digital. Many of their models follow this trend, but there's a few that stick with a more digital look.
