Fujifilm Z1000EXR Lens details

The Z1000EXR has an inbuilt lens having a focal range of 28-140mm making it a 5.0 x zoom which is not huge however it can be valuable in a few circumstances.

At it's widest 28mm, it will have an aperture of f3.9 making it rather sluggish and not good in low light situations and you will likely find it difficult to capture a shallow depth of field. You will likely also have to boost your ISO setting producing noisy files. On the long end, 140mm comes with f4.9 which is quite slow and you may have to go with slow shutter speeds.

Fujifilm Z1000EXR Video details

The maximum video quality on the Fujifilm Z1000EXR is 1920 x 1080 and it can record in MPEG-4 and H.264 format. 1080p quality gives you an excellent balance between quality and file size but FULL HD isn't going to leave you with much room to crop. The body doesn't feature a mic and headphone socket which means that you get absolutely no control over your sound. It is perhaps a better idea to purchase a different camera if you need decent sound in your video clips.
