Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro Review


The successor to Fuji's FinePix S3 Pro made its first, fleeting appearence at Photokina in September 2006, though it didn't start shipping until the spring of 2007 - keeping in line with Fuji's approx two-year gap between SLR models. The S5 Pro may...

Huge step up in body quality and performance thanks to Nikon D200 platform Class-leading dynamic range with up to 12 EV in a single exposure Superb out-of-camera JPEG with subtle color, tone, DR (though poor sharpness) Visible improvement in image...

Default settings produce very soft results (over-strong AA filter?) 12MP mode doesn't produce 12MP of detail, is very soft, shows artefacts and doesn't sharpen that well High ISO noise reduction works well but again it is at the expense of fine detail...

Let's start with a little history. In the earliest days of digital photography the DSLR market was a free-for-all of alliances between camera companies such as Nikon and Canon and those like Kodak and Fuji who supplied the electronics and image...

Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro review


It's no secret that Fujifilm models its dSLRs on Nikon bodies, but its latest model, called the Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro, may as well be a clone of the Nikon D200 --from the outside at least. Inside, Fujifilm swaps out the Nikon guts for its own array...

Very low noise at higher ISOs; wide dynamic range; solid, well-designed body.

Slightly sluggish AF system; low effective resolution for a pro-level camera; bloated file sizes.

While a wide dynamic range lets it serve up tons of highlight detail and impressive overall image quality, the S5 Pro isn't for high-speed sports photography, and it could use more resolution.

The S5 is a full-featured, professional grade camera that produces outstanding images. While the resolution looks closer to 6MP than 12MP, the dynamic range and lack of noise artifacts in high ISO settings is impressive. If most of your work is done...

Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro review


It seems like ages since the S3 Pro, and it has been 2.5 years since Fujifilm has introduced a new camera: the FinePix S5 Pro. In the world of digital photography that is a long time, indeed. It might even seem longer because the S3 Pro was actually a...

The developments in digital photography, especially in the DSLR cameras, are still advancing quickly. At any given moment you have to choose whether or not you need a new camera. Fujifilm let us know just in time that the S3's successor was coming. The...

Fujifilm S5 Pro Review


While other camera manufacturers ? both with traditional photographic and electronics backgrounds ? have rushed to capitalize on the growth of the DSLR market by rushing out several models spread across staggered price points, Fujifilm, like fellow...

The Fujifilm S5 Pro is a bit of an odd fish, and stands out from Fujifilm's range as such, primarily because it's the only one of its cameras that isn't really aimed at the consumer market. Though a pro photographer can't very well grumble about the...

First Look: Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro


In Fujifilm's new math, the successor to the FinePix S3 Pro digital SLR is not the S4 but the S5 Pro, a camera that's essentially a moderate tweak in a new body

Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro digital camera Review and Prices


If you're buying an advanced, enthusiast-class digital camera, you know you're going to receive top-of-the-line performance. The little things can set these models apart, and the FinePix S5 from Fujifilm includes quite a few very good features that...

Outstanding image quality, excellent low-light performance, good shutter speeds, LCD magnification is handy, dual image file option

Add-ons can be expensive, realistic resolution is lower than advertised

The S5 Pro delivers top quality images for portrait, wedding and nature photographers


The Fujifilm S5 Pro DSLR camera is a real workhorse of a camera that uses Fuji's exceptional Super CCD SR Pro double pixel technology (6.17 million S-pixels and 6.17 million R-pixels arranged in a diagonal matrix). Fuji is the only manufacturer to have...
