Summary: I love this camera !!!! I own two now. As far as I am concerned it is the best camera Fuji made! I wish that Fuji still made this camera. I have owned my first one since 2004 and just love the quality, no other camera of my friends even comes close!
Very nice camera with a few problems. Buy a couple if you like the 1st one

Summary: Bought one new. Loved it. They have a problem w/chip burnout. Bought two more used ones after the first one died because we love em. They DO have a delay in the shutter which causes some missed shots. Try to shoot just BEFORE you want the shot for best results.

21 February 2013
Summary: I bought this Fujifilm FinePix S5000 to replace the one I bought new in 2003. I tried to have mine fixed but was told the sensor was bad and could not be fixed.I had also bought a 2X Telephoto and a Titanium 0.38X Wide Angle Lens that only fit this camera several years ago.
Summary: Surprisingly the camera takes really great pics downloading them was really easy I didn't know what to expect I got it a great price open the box and began using it wished the view screen was larger but really good camera for the price
Excerpt: The Fujifilm FinePix S5000 is my 3rd digicam, after having an Olympus Camedia 1000(8 years ago) and a Finepix 1300 camera. Owned the Fuji S5000 for almost 2 years and took about 10,000 photos, so I've had plenty of time to become 'disaffected' if the camera deserved it!
Summary: I bought the camera going by what the add had said in the begining of the add .. it said that it worked. I didn't read the intire add and at the very bottom it was mentioned that the camera needed some work. My mistake buy not reading the intire add .. make sure you read everything before buying ..
Summary: Easy to operate, and goof proof! It can be used as a professional camera and takes good videos. My wife used it to make photobooks on snapfish and entered 2 photos in their winter photo contest. She got 3rd place out of over 2000 entries and she is not a professional, so what do you think?
Summary: Unlike Canon's and Nikon's digital high end cameras, the S5000 series FinePix cameras are light weight. They are full featured enough for the professional yet easy to master by the novice. The manuals are well written and easy to follow.
Summary: My brother in law purchased this camera several years back. The picture is great and the zoom is incredible! I purchased three since. One for me ,one for my future son in law and another for my brother in law. ( the first one he bought was dropped on cement and broke).
