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!
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.
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: 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).
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.
Summary: i think i love what others have admitted to. the ease of use, the fine ability to enlarge at the 6mm level. the ability to 'pretend' i'm using an SLR and yet happily choose the AUTO setting. i've bought several of these.....
Summary: I did lots of research before buying a digital camera. I have been beyond pleased with the performance of this camera. It is difficult not to take great pictures. Its menu commands are very easy, I have made good use of the manual settings.
