The best of the best-of-both-worlds bridge camera category, the new flagship Fujifilm X-S1 offers the user-friendliness of a point-and-shoot with the precision of an entry-level DSLR. Manual operation of the 25x optical zoom lens - unique in a category that often relies on button-functionality - sets Fuji apart from the rest. There's more precise movement and framing, high resolution and a huge focal range. Because the photography industry is keen on portmanteaus, we call it the best option for "prosumers."
