Fujifilm S2000HD Lens info

The S2000HD houses a built-in lens providing a focal range of 28-414mm making it a 14.8 x zoom which is significant and does make it easier to zoom right in.

At the widest 28mm, the lens features an aperture of f3.5 making it quite slow and not good for low light occasions and you may struggle to get good bokeh. You will probably also need to raise the ISO producing noisy photographs. At the tele end, 414mm is outstanding zoom and comes to f5.4 which is pretty slow and you would need to set slow shutter speeds.
