In the midst of a pre-CES announcement compact camera, Fujifilm introduces FinePix S1, the 'world's first' weatherproof superzoom. It offers a 16 megapixel CMOS sensor and a 24-1200mm (50x) F2.8-5.6 zoom lens. With an articulating 3.0-inch LCD its specifications line up with the FinePix SL1000 in Fuji's current lineup, though with a slightly faster lens and the addition of Wi-Fi connectivity. Being weather-resistant the Fujifilm S1 is rugged enough to withstand exposure to rain and dust, though it's not fully ruggedized to be submersible in water.
