Summary: Back around 03 this camara was so far ahead of others , the pictures I took with mine stand up to 12 megs easy as far as image apperance. The only reason Ive updated was for movies. I still have it and it still works great,25,000 pictures later. The new Fujs have lost the edge they once had.
Summary: I like the camera but some of the pictures I'm taking seem blurry. Also the seller said that the batteries would come along with the camera but the didn't and the memory card size would have been some good knowledge to know.
Summary: I purchased this camera knowing that it was inoperative, and after receiving I thought it may be an easy fix but found that camera would cost more to repair than the value of a workable like item. I then sold this item for parts to someone that used the parts to repair another like item. End of story.
Summary: I recently bought a used S5000. It was a small upgrade. I am very pleased with the photos that I've printed. Although I would highly suggest buying a larger memory card. I don't upload very often so I needed a larger card than my 128MB. I searched to see if I could use a 2GB type M+. I couldn't find any information on the M+ but research said that the M would work. I even called Fuji and they couldn't tell me. I took a chance and it works like a charm.
Summary: This is a very good camera, unfortunately Fuji has stopped production of this model... it is very good for starters to learn about photography and slowly move towards a DSLR mode i guess...i have used this camera for last three years and now i have a broken battery lid.. which is due to th eplastic body.. i feel this is the only drawback this camera has other wise this is really a good handy camera....
Summary: This was my second digicam from Fuji. It was better than the first one I had. What I liked: Amazing image quality Easy to use Manual controll Great manual Came with memory card and batteries Very fast, images showed quickly, little lag time What I didn't like Slow start up of 3 seconds As the camera got old it started crashing, it would shut off at random times
Summary: I bought this camera as my first digital. I have used it as my professional digital. While it does have some limitations overall it is superb. I have used it to take photos that have been published in a national horse publication. It gives professional results with ease.
Summary: I bought my camera over a year ago, I have had noproblems at all with it. Its similar to that of a real DSLR in the fact u can adjust allot of the settings, and the body style. But it keeps the point and shoot ideas by having a fixed lense. The 10x zoom is amazing. my only complaints, would be the shutter speeds are limited to 2 seconds. I would like to have had a bulb setting. I wish it did have a detachable lense so i could fit many more lenses and filters among it.
Summary: I bought the CoolPix based on reviews from here. It is a fine designed camera, takes perfect pictures and have very flexible lenses. The gadgetry is superb. But: The time delay between the press of your finger and the catch of the scene is so long that is impossible to take snap shots, instant shots. Cartier Bresson will trow away this handsome camera. This time delay is much less in other cameras, like the Olympus D460, which I always have.
Summary: Just bought my Fuji S5000 a month ago and am extremely pleased with it!Out of the box I was taking impressive, detailed pictures!Although daytime shots are taken best with this camera, with some setting adjustments nighttime shots can be pretty good.I have taken most of my shots on the 3 mp setting and they have turned out great.Although in order to use the Raw format you have to use the 6 mp setting.The zoom is great.
