Summary: I bought this camera from Amazon.com couple of months ago (sometime in April of 2007). At the time, the newer model of Fuji DSLR, the S5, was just introduced. Although the S5 offers a lot of improvements, I decided to buy the S3.
Summary: O.K. It is slow in comparison to 2012 models, but BUT everything else about it is still first rate - resolution, tone, reliability. And it doesn't eat up pc memory yet still delivers large print quality.
Summary: I've had this camera since 2006. I've used it for all my work. It paid for itself in 2007. I still have this wonderful machine and the colors from it are just remarkable! Yes, it is a 6 megapixel camera, and I have printed images up to 20x30 with no pixelation and no blurring.
Excerpt: We've used both the Fujifilm FinePix S2 and FinePix S3 for studio work on products for brochures and web work. The Fuji S3 Pro offers a real advantage over other DSLR's because of the wide D range. It makes a big difference under the studio lights. The down side is slow operation, RAW is snail pace.
Summary: i've got the fuji s2 for 3 yrs now, been waiting and save for an s3 until now, i got my s3 on ebay used in great cond for 1245$, it came in very good cond like new. my 1st impression was the nicer grip, the body is in flat, dull black, not like s2 is more on shiny side.the rubber parts on s3 is very...
Summary: This is the first digital camera which made me forget the film, after 27 years of photography experience. The image quality is beyond expectation. The performance is much slower compared to current Nikon dSLR models, including much more affordable Nikon D70.
Summary: I am a pro photographer and when my own S3 broke I needed a replacement fast. The supplier was great - recognising my urgency, he shipped it SD so I could meet my diary. The S3 is a good camera with lots going on if you really want to exploit digital imaging technology.
Summary: I could not wait to take a look at the when it first came out in 2004, but I could not justify the £1800 price tag with being a now and then amateur photograph, so I decided to stay with my Nikon F80 and continue to use Fuji Velvia and Reala film.
