  • 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. The body of the S5000 reminds you of the APS/35mm SRL camera, but then more compact. The design contributes to a very comfortable feeling when holding the camera, it fits like a glove!

  • Excerpt: Fuji Photo Film U.S.A. Inc., www.fujifilm.com $399.95 list 3.1 megapixels; 10X optical, 2.2X digital zoom Easy to hold and handle. Fast. Not ideal for action shots. Less sharp images with noise and graininess. Busy menu structure. The Fujifilm FinePix S5000 may come at a bargain price, but its operations are awkward and it exhibits and irritating amount of stutter.

  • 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 in all of us.
  • 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 smaller than you expect, Supplied lens adapter gives camera a more professional look, protects lens, "Thirds grid" overlay option on live view is useful, Good build quality for ...
  • 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, Limited night exposure capability, No direct adjustment for tone or color saturation, No manual white balance preset, Relatively slow shutter release lag (half to full press of s...

  • 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. The S5000 uses a 3.2 Megapixel SuperCCD HR sensor, which can produce images with 6 million pixels (through interpolation). 1) No matter what it says on the box, this is not a 6 Megapixel 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 help much), Good frame rate in movie mode
  • 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 photos in playback mode

Fujifilm FinePix S5000 Zoom

  • Summary: This is the seventh Fujfilm digital camera that I've reviewed from their current range, from the budget A205s all the way up to the top-of-the-range S7000, and it's been interesting to see which features have been used where. The Fujfilm FinePix S5000 Zoom is like a more grown-up version of the FinePix S3000 Zoom, with a 10x optical zoom, a few extra features and more professional styling, but it also shares the same 4th Generation Super CCD HR sensor as the FinePix...

Fujifilm FinePix S5000 Zoom

PC Authority
25 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. This is mostly down to the excellent ergonomics – the hand grip is perfectly designed for one-handed shooting.

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. De behuizing van de S5000 doet denken aan die van een APS/35mm spiegelreflex camera, maar dan net nog eventjes compacter.
