The S6800 has an impressive 16MP 1/2.3-inch BSI-CMOS sensor that captures excellent quality, low noise shots at sensitivities as high as ISO 12800. With autofocus speeds of 0.3 seconds*1, start-up times of 1.0 seconds*1, a 0.5 seconds*1 interval between shots and a continuous shooting speed of 8fps (max 10 frames at full resolution)*1, users can feel confident about capturing fast-action shots. And with its ultra-high-speed shooting of up to 60fps (max 60 frames, image size 1280 × 960) *1 and up to 120fps (max 60 frames, image size 640 × 480)*1, the S6800 lets users capture the action in slow-motion for advanced photography.


The FinePix S6800 makes movie recording as easy as taking pictures using the dedicated movie button to start recording instantly. The high resolution, 1080i movie capture at 60fps with stereo sound and slow-motion capture at 480fps*2 is superb when played back on HDTV screens, and users can even take still photos during video recording. The S6800 also adds a number of in-camera movie editing features including “movie trimming” and “movie join.”
