The excellent device! Great value for the money! I recommend!

Summary: Improbable colours of Fuji. The dynamic range - allows to extend from jpg 400 % so much, how many on usual devices from RAW. Will handicap much FX on artistry and quality of photos both in studio and in the reporting. The case from Nikon D200, protected, hence - a ruler for Nikon objectives with wonderful quality multiplied by colours of a matrix of Fuji. Strong a design and the convenient successful fellow.
Excerpt: I've recently purchased the Fujifilm S5 Pro camera and have to say, it's pretty good. The big screen is a plus as well as the digital slr design, which is easier to hold than standard digital cameras. The differen't modes are also helpful for people that are more into professional photography with settings such as capture speed, exposure, iso, etc while the automatic mode is particurarly helpful for people who are still learning.
Excerpt: This camera is a work horse. It is easy to setup and simple to use. It has a larger viewing screen for reviewing your pics. For senior shooters, it has the ability to use a barcode system for tracking purposes. It is built on the D200 Nikon camera and has all of the features and benefits of that camera as well as those of the FUJIFILM S3 just better. The image quality is outstanding. There is a true visable difference between the S3 and the S5.
the best pro wedding and portrait camera available at any price

Excerpt: The fujijfilm s5 pro is no longer available in the new market and there are 10's of thousands of advanced and professional photographers very sad that Fuji has not continued to compete in the professional market. The color rendention and over all resolution of this fine tool will be sadly missed by many professional shooters not to say that, what would they come up with next, the compitition has re-introduce new cameras monthly, as it seems, which can not hold a candle...
Summary: I am a professional photographer and this is my 4th S5. Easy to use special features and absolutely amazing skin tone. No other camera can match this feature, in my opinion. So sad these are discontinued.
Artist and portrait or landscape photographers will love this one.

Summary: After hours of comparing S5Pro galleries on line to other cameras, I had to have this one, even though you can only find them used or refurbed. This camera has a rather steep learning curve, but when the shots are right on, there is nothing else that can touch them in terms of image quality. There is a certain look ascribed to s5Pro images that can only be described as "magic." I paired it with a Nikkor lens, also a factory refurb and am quite satisfied.
Would recommend this product and person to a friend.

Summary: I am a commercial photographer. Needed a back up for my S3. This S5 was need on my list. To stay in the same system. This camera has been the best purchase for the money. The person that I bought the camera form has done everything that he said he would do.
Summary: I had enjoyed the Fuji S5, but thought some recent malfunctions were due to fault of camera. Turns out the glitch was fault of a lens and not my first S5. I'm happy to have this second model, new and perfect as described. I understand this model is no longer manufactured, which is regrettable. Great workhorse, easy to use, and excellent photos!
