  • Conclusion: Once more Fujifilm's D-SLR turns out to be the dark horse of the D-SLR race. The S2 Pro goes a long way to satisfying Fujifilm's claims about SuperCCD, although it's my opinion that the SuperCCD design works far better in a D-SLR (large sensor size) than a consumer camera.
  • Pros: The new resolution leader for six megapixel D-SLR's (SuperCCD performs well), Good colour and tonal balance, good dynamic range, Very low image noise even at high sensitivities (new noise reduction system), Superb Nikon 3D matrix metering, More robust body (thanks to the use of the F80/N80), Body...
  • Cons: Still some slight moiré visible on diagonal detail, more so with 12 mp images, 1/2 EV steps for exposure selection / compensation, Adobe RGB color space not selectable for in-camera JPEG (only for RAW), Two different types of battery required, slightly clumsy AA battery tray, Camera system still ...

Fujifilm S2 Pro Digital SLR Review

ePHOTOzine
3 January 2003
  • Summary: After being impressed by the Canon D60 and Nikon D100, I had a doubt in the back of my mind as to whether the Fuji offering could keep up with the quality of these rival cameras. The best camera of the three is subjective to your requirements, but for many I suspect the S2 will be the winner.
  • Pros: Well designed user interface, Good weight and handling characteristics, Wide selection of features and options, Excellent image quality, 12 megapixel mode is optional, Firewire and USB connections, High usable ISO range
  • Cons: Complication of using two battery types, Exposure compensation is in 1/2 steps, Occasionally camera/menu operation could be faster

  • Excerpt: Kaum zwei Kameras sind sich so ähnlich, aber in einigen Punkten so verschieden wie die Nikon D100 und die Fujifilm FinePix S2 Pro. Beide bauen nämlich auf der gleichen Kamera, der Kleinbild-Spiegelreflexkamera F80 von Nikon, auf.
