Fuji Finepix s2950 vs s2980 Bridge Camera Comparison

Updated on September 6, 2012

A Quick comparison : The Fuji Finepix s2950 vs The Fuji Finepix s2980


On the face of it, these two cameras seem very similar, the Finepix s2950 being the 2980's predecessor. They both have similar looks (practically identical looks!) and a similar spec. and a similar price point, so which is better?

On the whole, both of these cameras are great cameras, especially for budding young photographers on a budget this is the ideal budget Bridge camera (to 'bridge' the gap between a compact camera and a DSLR). I really couldn’t recommend them more highly, as even for a professional photographer the quality of the 'point and shoot' is well worth the price.

So, lets get to the comparison - Both cameras have the same basic spec :

  • 14 Megapixel
  • 18x Optical Zoon
  • 3 Inch LCD Screen ... etc. etc. etc.

But what are the differences?

Other than the £20.00 difference in RRP, there are very few, but there are some which are as follows :

  1. The Finepix s2950 can shoot only 8 frames per second whereas the Finepix s2980 can shoot 12 frames per second.
  2. The Finepix s2980 has a much improved, faster auto-focus which is especially evident when re-focusing during HD video recording.
  3. The Finepix s2980 has 27 scene modes, while the s2950 only has 24.

On the whole, these differences seem very minor, and you may think the £20 is better spent on a memory card for it, or maybe even a takeaway meal, but I have found that the £20 is worth spending if you are using it for HD video recording. The quicker autofocus and smoother playback make a massive difference to the quality of the recorded videos the camera produces, so if video is a major thing for you, I would definitely recommend the s2980. If you are going to use this camera for photos - as an everyday point and shoot, there is absolutely no difference whatsoever, so the £20 would be better saved.

I hope you found this useful, and if you have any questions, please just comment below and I'll do my best to answer :)
