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
Summary: After using the point and shoot camera for a decade, I wanted to try a digital SLR. Once I saw the prices, this was my compromise. For the first year or so, we were really happy with it. The only complaint we have it that it will not take a focused picture with the flash off. 5 years latter: four brand new batteries last literally 10 minutes. About half that time if we use rechargeable batteries.
Summary: The pictures come out in really good quality, but the opening time it takes for the camera to turn on and be ready to take the first picture REALLY SUCKS. The LCD screen is also very small, unlike the other high class fuji film S700 which is very large.
Summary: This camera is great if you don't want a point and shoot and you don't want a professional camera, it is the middle ground camera. This camera has some great features for people who want a great camera but not quite at the professional level. Pros: - 6-megapixel -LCD works great in any lighting situation - great quality pictures - easy to use menu screen - great automatic features and also great features for more professional people -great video capability for short...
Relatively Good Value: Strong advantages, Strong drawbacks

Summary: This was the first digital camera I had ever bought, so I did a great deal of research before jumping into the new technology. There were certainly cheaper cameras out there, and more sophisticated ones, but the s5000 seemed to be a good balance of costs vs. features, and I didn't want to lay down a great deal of money, until I had figured out from use which features were important (Start up time, for example, was something I had never considered before).
Easy to use, lots of features, NOT good for action shots

Summary: I bought this camera about 2 months ago and have been very pleased with it in all but 1 aspect: it is no good for action shots. It has the same problem as every other digital camera in that you have to push the shutter button half-way down to lock the Auto-focus, and only then can you snap an instant shot, but on top of that, this camera doesn't take the shot immediately when the shutter button is pressed all the way down, there is a millisecond delay, just enough to...
10x optical zoom, pro feel, but not the best value.

Summary: the s5000 has a very nice professional feel. it also has 10x optical zoom which is great. but the superCCD system that fuji uses doesn't give as much detail as hoped for, and in the end, you have to conclude that there are better camers at this price point out there. pros: - 6-megapixel interpolated still mode. - vivid colors. - 10x optical zoom!
Summary: I am a previous owner of the Fuji S602 and looked forward to receiving this model due to its 370mm zoom. First impressions were good, build quality, feel, style all excellent. The downside is image quality, it just does not cut the mustard to the competition (Olympus C-750 or Minolta Z1). Purple fringing is apparent on most images and they are not sharp. I thought I may have had a bad example but online reviews have also found the same problems.
Summary: Hola, ami tambien me ha pasado igual, yo no la he tenido tanto tiempo parada la empleo casi a diario, pero un dia la cojo y la enciendo y son todo rallas, deberiamos hacer todos jjuntos una reclamación, porque eso es un defecto de fabricación, saludos.
Summary: Diese Rezension schreibe ich fast fünf (!) Jahre nach meinem Kauf. Vorneweg: Die Kamera tut es immer noch und ich benutze sie immer noch regelmäßig. Aber für heutige Maßstäbe ist sie ein besseres Spielzeug. Die 3,1 MP reichen zwar aus, leider sind viele Bilder aber extrem gelbstichig und es treten in der jpeg-Kompression starke Artefakte auf. Sehr gut ist hingegen der für damalige Verhätnisse erstaunlich lichtstarke optische Zoom.
