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 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.
Summary: I have had this camera for about 5 months now and am extremely pleased with it. This is my 4th digital camera, and is by far my absolute favorite. It takes gorgeous pictures - I've had many printed and everyone I show them to is amazed that they are from a digital camera.

Summary: I am on a mission to become a photographer. I've always loved taking pictures and I want to start really focusing (no pun intended) on photography. However, I didn't want to start with a $1500 digital SLR and then discover I'm not really as into photography as I'd hoped.
Summary: When I started researching for my first digital camera, there were three main qualities I was looking for: powerful zoom, good picture quality and adaptability (I wanted a camera a newcomer could "grow" with). It also had to be affordable.
Great Camera - zoom, action shots, extreme close-up,etc.

Summary: I've used this camera for about 4 months now and I am 100% satisfied. I did a lot of research and eventually made the right choice, given some similiar cameras on the market. Zoom capability was most important to me, and my expectations have been met and then some.
