  • Excerpt: I've owned this camera now for three years. It is my first one. I use it in different ways, landscape, architecture, portrets, my grandkids and family. Despite the negative articles and controverse, i have no regrets, because the great dynamic range, different film modus and color are very well. I am shooting only in the raw format, developed with fujifilm raw. In my opinion the best there is for the S5pro, futher on with Silky pix and CS4.

  • Excerpt: I've owned this camera for three years. It was my retirement gift to myself. I use it for mostly pix of my grandkids, and for landscape photos. I previously used a Nikon D200, so it was very easy to use. Must say I prefer Nikon's menus, though. The S5 is built like a Mac Truck, just like the D200. Works perfectly with all my Nikon lenses and gadgets. In terms of features, it includes some which don't interest me, such as film emulation.

  • Excerpt: Brilliant camera, which produces excellent images.....if the photographer is careful to try to get the best images straight from the camera. Very tough body, with all the features I require, plus some more which I have yet to investigate fully. I work at a semi-professional level, and it is easy to see that this camera has a professional heritage. The learning curve is not too steep, if the maual and other user's advice is heeded.

  • Excerpt: I brought this in Jan 09. i took more than 8000 pics.. most of them Industrial and pictorial.. very excellent mechine. basically i am Fuji lover.. of color, tone and sharpness.. I love my baby.. Problems: No problems... only i am little worried about why Fuji is not devoloping more better accesories like battery life, vertical grip and more important Fujinon lences for S5 pro. if Fuji is looking at this... we all S5pro owners feel happy.

Looks like it is now officially discontinued.

  • Summary: Much improved over the previous version S3 Pro in terms of ease of use. The larger display screen is nice and the menu is much improved. Although the AA batteries of the previous version had its advantages, I prefer the lithion ion battery system of this version. The actual results is not that much of an improvement -- pixel count and ccd sizes remain the same.

  • Excerpt: Have had my S5 for a couple of months. Coming from Canon DSLRs. The S5 has exceeded my expecations! The DR is outstanding and image quality (sharpness, contrast) is great. It takes a while to get used to the menu but once you do, it is very logical. It also take some trial to figure out which camera settings give the desired IQ (we see this differently). Use it with the 50/1.8D and 18-70 Nikkor so far and the image quality from the 50 is outstanding.

Was a very good low light camera

Christopher K. Seid, Amazon
10 July 2008
  • Summary: I have owned the Nikon D70, D200 and currently still have the D80, D300 and Fuji S5. If low light photography is your cup of tea...then this is a very good camera. It beats the D70, D80 and D200 (anything over ISO 800 on these cameras are pretty much useless). However, since the D300 has arrived, (not to mention the D3), it is no longer my favorite low light camera. The D300 performs better in this area.

  • Excerpt: I have been using the S5 Pro for a couple of days and, so far, I must say that it's even better than I thought! I must say that I always wanted that camera since it's official release. White balance accuracy and dynamic range are important for me so such a camera was a no brainer. Unfortunately $2200CAN was way too expensive for me so I told myself to wait a little and maybe one day I'll get a used one for less $$.
