Fujifilm FinePix S9400W
The Fujifilm S9400W is a budget long zoom that doesn't sacrifice too many features.
By Hillary Grigonis, Last updated on: 6/19/2014

The FinePix S9400W is one of a handful of long zoom options Fujifilm introduced at CES 2014 and is probably one of the better options when you factor in the $350 price (over the S1's $500). The S9400 actually has the same sensor as the S1, though takes AA batteries instead of a rechargeable lithium-ion, has a bit slower maximum shutter speed and doesn't offer RAW. But for a $150 less, if the weather-sealing and RAW shooting don't interest you, the S9400 is a good alternative. It also features the same super macro mode that focuses as close as one centimeter, so you can shoot both close-ups and shots from afar with the 50x zoom. As an extra bonus, Fujifilm hasn't axed the beloved viewfinder. Fujifilm also introduced the S9200, which is very similar and about $25 cheaper, but the wi-fi and better battery life make the S9400W the better option for such a small difference.
