Fujifilm FinePix S review

 

Intro The Fujifilm FinePix S5100 replaces the S5000, which we praised for its features and form factor but criticized for subpar image quality and shortcomings in its design. The new model offers the same 10X zoom lens and a handful of feature and...

Compact for a megazoom model; 10X zoom lens; fairly extensive set of advanced features; responsive performance; raw mode is more usable than on most consumer cameras.

Exposure compensation is difficult to activate; raw-mode selection buried too deep in the menus; limited JPEG compression choices; fuzzy, grainy electronic viewfinder; included raw converter is almost useless.

This responsive, well-rounded camera should get a serious look from anyone shopping for a megazoom model.

Fujifilm FinePix S5000

 

At $399.95 (we've seen it online for under $300), the Fujifilm FinePix S5000 is a bargain—with some caveats.

The S5000's Fujifilm Super CCD HR technology can interpolate 3.1 effective megapixels into 6. We used this mode for our testing. Our daylight results were a bit dark, with some noise. The flash images were well illuminated but showed some graininess....

Fuji Finepix S5000 Digital Camera Camera

 

The FinePix S5000 looks and feels like an expensive camera, with a rubberized black body you might find on a single-lens reflex model, and a pronounced grip that makes it especially comfortable to hold right-handed. Its 10X zoom lens is still...

You can take good-looking movies with this camera--30 frames per second, with clear audio (most cameras still only offer 15 frames per second). In addition, you can take up to 5 shots per second; and unlike with the cameras' clunky manual focusing,...

Fujifilm FinePix S5000

 

Built like an expensive SLR, but comes up short on resolution.

The S5000 is a very attractive-looking camera; it has the appearance of a high-quality, high-performance model. Unfortunately, it doesn't fully deliver on the performance part of that equation.

Fujifilm FinePix S5000 Zoom Review

 

Fujifilm announced the FinePix S5000 Zoom on 29th July 2003. It represents an affordable, compact, lightweight three megapixel (SuperCCD pixels) digital camera with a ten times optical zoom lens and an SLR-like appearance. To my eye it's one of the...

Vivid color response, if a little strong with primary reds Ten times optical zoom provides a lot of flexibility, low distortion measurement Lens 'fast' even at telephoto (F3.2) Respectable macro focus at around one third zoom Excellent body design,...

Sharpening algorithm too harsh (and/or unsophisticated) Use of higher sensitivities affects image sharpness Vignetting / Lens shading visible in everyday shots Poor frame coverage of LCD and EVF (just 89% of final image) Not enough latitude (or...

Here's my rating of the Fujifilm FinePix S5000 Zoom: (3 megapixel compact)

Fujifilm FinePix S5000 review

 

Fujifilm Netherlands has announced the FinePix S5000 officially at the end of August 2003. This surprisingly versatile digital camera is equipped with Fujifilm's 4th generation Super CCD HR technique. This by Fujifilm designed and exclusively applied...

The FinePix S5000 of Fujifilm resembles a diesel. When it really gets going, the best features come forward. The large optical range of this camera, the relative bright telephoto lens and the numerous settings make it a versatile camera. The body of...

Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera Review: Intro and Highlights

 

The Fujifilm S5000 is the latest in Fuji's line of FinePix digital cameras sharing a similar style, with a prominent lens on the left side of the body, balanced by a larger handgrip on the right. The new S5000 is a digital SLR, in that both the...
