Fuji FinePix S3 Pro

best4reviews.com
19 April 2007
  • Summary: The S3 Pro looks overpriced compared to many of the D-SLRs appearing on the market now. But, while this is not a sports photographer’s snapper, it offers uniqueness with its wide dynamic range thanks to the dual pixel layout. This makes it a real social photographer's tool where skin tones and whites are intrinsic to a good shot. It is, in fact, a real belter albeit one for a niche within a niche of the photo market.
  • Pros: Nice design, improved handling, built-in vertical grip with single battery, new sensor Super CCD SR II.
  • Cons: Slow, the AF ‘hunts’ on some subjects, batteries don’t last long enough, best of the dynamic range only comes into play using CCD RAW format.

Fujifilm FinePix S3 Pro

PC Magazine
19 October 2006
  • Conclusion: Some professional portrait photographers may enjoy the quality, but the S3 Pro is too expensive to have such a slow burst rate.
  • Pros: Excellent picture quality. Wide dynamic range. Lots of control over settings.
  • Cons: Slow burst mode. Menus and displays on LCD are a little confusing. Very expensive.

  • Conclusion: Fujifilm FinePix S3 Pro camera for the professional photographer Compared with the FinePix S2 Pro Fujifilm improved an awful lot and added some useful functions to the S3 Pro. It is obvious right away that the Fujifilm FinePix S3 Pro is a camera for the professional photographer. Speed is not the strongest side of the camera, to put it mildly. But then, speed is not of great importance to the portrait, wedding and nature photographer.

  • Pros: '12.3 megapixel' sensor, superior image quality
  • Cons: An already expensive camera, the S3 Pro requires equally expensive accessories to reach its full potential.

  • Summary: The S3 delivers top quality images in a range of professional situations. Whether it's a true 12Mp camera is a moot point, but you'll certainly be able to print your pictures up to A2 size. At a list price of £1,450, it's over-priced compared to rivals, but if you can find it at a reasonable street price it’s certainly worth considering.

Fujifilm S3 Pro DSLR Review

ePHOTOzine
5 April 2005
  • Summary: As a current S2 user I found the camera very easy to adapt to, in fact it was harder using the S2 when the camera was returned. Immediate reaction was the grip had been vastly improved, as had the weight and balance. Using just one set of batteries offered a better solution as well.
  • Pros: Ergonomic Grip, Extended Dynamic Range for improved highlight and shadow detail, Single set of batteries, Vertical grip and Shutter release, Optional 12 million pixel image capture, User friendly controls
  • Cons: Slow write speeds with dynamic range enabled for RAW capture, Vertical shutter release does not wake the camera from sleep, Menu options locked out when writing image to card, Pricing in comparison to competitor models (at time of release)

Fuji FinePix S3 Pro

Pocket Lint
4 April 2005
  • Pros: The S3 Pro replaces the multi-award winning S2 Pro, a better body shape the improved handling, a built-in vertical grip and single battery use are all improvements as is the new sensor Super CCD SR II sensor.
  • Cons: Slower than I expected in use, the AF ‘hunts’ on some subjects and batteries still don’t last long enough and the best of the improved dynamic range only comes to the for using the CCD RAW format.

Fujifilm FinePix S3 Pro Review

LetsGoDigital
24 January 2013
  • Conclusion: Ten opzichte van de FinePix S2 Pro heeft Fujifilm ontzettend veel verbeterd en een aantal handige dingen toegevoegd. De Fujifilm FinePix S3 Pro is een camera voor de professionele fotograaf, dat blijkt uit alles. Snelheid is niet het sterkste punt, om het maar voorzichtig uit te drukken. Voor de portret-, bruids- en natuurfotograaf is dat echter niet zo heel belangrijk.

  • Summary: Angesichts eines Marktpreises unter 1200 Euro kann man der Fujifilm FinePix S3 Pro jetzt ein sehr gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis bescheinigen. Überzeugend die Bildqualität, umfangreich die Ausstattung, darunter ein zweites LC-Display an der Rückseite und FireWire-Schnittstelle ergänzend zu USB 2.0. Eine gute Alternative zu den Klassenkameraden von Canon und Nikon.
