FinePix S1 offers 50x optical zoom, weather protection

Fujifilm has used CES to launch what it is calling the first weather-resistant bridge camera in the world. The FinePix S1 houses a 16.4-megapixel CMOS sensor and a 50x super zoom 24mm F2.8-1200mm F5.6 lens, stretched further by a 2x Intelligent Digital Zoom to 100x magnification, with the company claiming it to also be protected from splashes, rain, and dust.

On the back is a three-inch hinged LCD screen accompanied by a 920K-dot electronic viewfinder, while its Wi-Fi connectivity allows it to transfer images to other devices or to use a smartphone or tablet as a remote using its dedicated app.

Fujifilm will be shipping the FinePix S1 in March, priced at $500.
