  • Conclusion: Fujifilm FinePix S5000 versatile digital camera The FinePix S5000 of Fujifilm resembles a diesel. When it really gets going, the best features come forward. The large optical range of this camera, the relative bright telephoto lens and the numerous settings make it a versatile camera.

  • Conclusion: Here's my rating of the Fujifilm FinePix S5000 Zoom: (3 megapixel compact) The S5000 is a photographers camera, it is design to look and feel like a compact SLR with its deep hand grip, wide lens barrel, large eyepiece and rubberized body coating it appeals to the professional photographer element...
  • Pros: Vivid color response, if a little strong with primary reds, Ten times optical zoom provides a lot of flexibility, low distortion measurement, Lens 'fast' even at telephoto (F3.2), Respectable macro focus at around one third zoom, Excellent body design, feels very good in your hand, Lighter and sm...
  • Cons: Sharpening algorithm too harsh (and/or unsophisticated), Use of higher sensitivities affects image sharpness, Vignetting / Lens shading visible in everyday shots, Poor frame coverage of LCD and EVF (just 89% of final image), Not enough latitude (or fineness) of adjustment of image parameters, Lim...

  • Excerpt: One camera that got a lot of people's attention in late July was Fuji's new FinePix S5000 ($499). The S5000 is a mix of the FinePix 3800 and S602 models, and it's also Fuji's first Ultra Zoom (10X) camera.
  • Pros: 10X optical zoom lens, Supports add-on lenses; adapter ring (which doubles as lens hood) included, Manual control of shutter speed, aperture, focus, Great looking (if only it felt more solid), Low redeye, Robust performance (except for my autofocus speed), AF illuminator (though it didn't seem to...
  • Cons: Image quality could be better -- too noisy and over-compressed; Purple fringing, vignetting also noticeable., Slowest shutter speed available is 2 sec, No guide in manual focus showing current focus distance, No manual white balance, Plastic body doesn't feel very solid, No exposure info for phot...

Fujifilm FinePix S5000 Zoom

PC Authority
4 April 2005
  • Summary: The S5000 is one of the best-looking SLR-style digital cameras we’ve seen and comes from the same lines at the S602 Zoom. The plastic casing is solidly built but feels much lighter than the 448g our scales declared.

Fujifilm FinePix S5000 Review

LetsGoDigital
24 January 2013
  • Conclusion: De FinePix S5000 van Fujifilm is net een diesel. Als deze echt op gang komt komen de waardevolle eigenschappen goed naar voren. Het grote optische bereik van deze camera, de relatief lichtsterke telelens en de instelmogelijkheden maken hem allround.

  • Excerpt: Le FinePix S5000 de Fuji a vraiment l'allure d'un Reflex. Bien sur, vu son prix, ce n'en est pas un. Mais son ergonomie et ses menus manuels (il ne manque que la balance des blancs !) font de cet appareil un bridge séduisant. Son zoom x10 est pratique, le piqué est bon.
  • Pros: Zoom optique 10x, Look Reflex et bonne finition
  • Cons: Compression JPEG trop forte
