Very nice camera with a few problems. Buy a couple if you like the 1st one
10 December 2013
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. Better zoom than many cameras costing more.
The Fujifilm FinePix S5000 Camera, awesome product! Great for the money!!!!
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. I was so happy when I received this camera and they fit great, now I'm back taking pictures and video's. I love this Camera, so easy to use.
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! But I still Love this Fujifilm digital camera! For its price it's a truly amazing and versatile - easy to operate - camera with excellent results.
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 .. I learned a lesson. Now, I have a camera that is usless to me!
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? We have 3 of them now after our last purfchase on ebay. Good bang for the buck.
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. This series is anywhere from 6 to 10 years old but used ones that are in good condition because these cameras are owned and cared for by serious photogs and are not bought by the casual snap-shooter.
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). It is fairly easy to use and does have an automatic setting as well as manual settings. I would definitly recommend this camera for anyone who wants an easy to use 35mm digital with an awesome zoom.
Summary: I was estatic to find this complete battery compartment for my Fuji Finepix 5000 camera. I had been comtemplating to purchase a new camera because the plastic taps which held the battery cover closed had broken off and it did not close properly. I found out it was a common problem with this camera and found several good websites with excellent instructions for installing a new battery compartment so when I got it, it was just a snap to get my camera fixed and look as...
