Fuji FinePix S5000 Zoom

 

The Fuji FinePix S5000 Zoom is one of the more distinctive digital cameras on the market at the moment. It looks very much like a traditional SLR camera in terms of styling, but it is actually more like a compact camera in size and weight. Despite its...

10x optical zoom, professional styling, relatively inexpensive

Limited ISO range, visible noise at higher ISOs, not a pocket camera

This is the seventh Fuji digital camera that I've reviewed from their current range, from the budget A205s all the way up to the top-of-the-range S7000, and it's been interesting to see which features have been used where. The FinePix S5000 Zoom is...

Review: Fujifilm FinePix S5000

 

Don Bradbury looks at a high spec, mid-priced, SLR digicam.

Small, light, good control, wide range zoom

Some controls fiddly, grainy EVF

Less than £300 buys you a decent digicam in the FinePix S5000, then. It may not be all things to all men, but it's a lot of camera for the money. The all-important photographic results can be quite impressive, and that's the most important point. Some...

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)
