If you\u2019re browsing cameras, aiming to find ones that are the best vlogging cameras under 300, allow us to turn your attention to the Fujifilm FinePix S8600 for consideration. It\u2019s built with good image and video quality, which is improved by making use of image stabilization technology so your shots have as few disturbances as possible.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Fujifilm FinePix S8600\r\nTaking photos from a distance or up close was Fujifilm FinePix S8600\u2019s strong point, thanks to a variety of stabilization technology and advanced sensor.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nWhere the Fujifilm FinePix S8600 shines most is image quality. And its technology is built around supporting it. With a 16 megapixels CCD sensor and wide angle, the S8600 can take some great pictures.\r\n\r\nWhat we loved most was is Super Macro Mode, which gave us the opportunity to shoot highly detailed images on objects very close, as close as 1cm away from the lens. With the Optical Image Stabilization, blurring was basically non-existent, nor did it seem to effect shutter speed.\r\n\r\nWe weren\u2019t very impressed by the S8600\u2019s 720p HD video. The standard these days is 1080p. Plenty of content creators still use 720p, however (more than you\u2019d think). It\u2019s shot at 30 frames per second, with a 16:9 ratio. As an added bonus, the 10 artistic effects came in handy for unique vlogging projects.\r\nDesign\r\nThe Fujifilm FinePix S8600 is rather large in comparison to the other vlogging-capable cameras on our list. The Panasonic Lumix ZS50, for example, is slim and narrow, and the lens doesn\u2019t jut out very far. The S8600 looks and feels like a professional camera, however. Fujifilm\u2019s decision to design a handle-like hump on the right is what many compact cameras lack. To the right of its 3-inch LCD screen are the various settings to fiddle with, accompanied by a rather large wheel at the top to switch modes. The S8600 takes AA batteries, and has a memory card slot for storage. It does not have internal storage.\r\nValue\r\nAfter considering what the Fujifilm S8600 is capable of, both in terms of photos and video, we\u2019ve determined it as being a good digital camera. But for vlogging? Not so much. The S8600 Fujifilm is more concerned with photos than video. It can still be a vlogging camera; 720p video resolution is still used by many vloggers on YouTube, more than you\u2019d think. It\u2019s still HD and uploads to YouTube, for example, much faster than 1080p does.\r\n\r\nFor the same price, you could purchase a Canon PowerShot SX610 HS. Like the S8600, it\u2019s too concerned with images, but it has a dedicated video button, 1080p FHD, more megapixels, and is much smaller in size. Its digital zoom is only half of what the S8600 Digital Camera offers, but is still an overall better camera. For action shots, consider the GoPro Hero5 Session.\r\nFujifilm FinePix S8600 Wrap Up\r\nRegardless of the Fujifilm FinePix S8600\u2019s shortcomings when placed in the hands of a vlogger, we still liked the S8600. It\u2019s a nice, little camera with good image quality. Its sub-par 720p video resolution can be overlooked as it\u2019s still used today\u2014and better on a budget. Its optical zoom can reach far and wide, while stabilization technology keeps the image from being too blurry.
