Summary: For the period in which these simple cameras where developed, its a great buy, especially if they are used as a backup for any photo jobs. I have three and I keep them in my autos in case and need a quick shot. There is a limitation to close up work so be aware. Also the battery cover locking device nibs can easily break. The 5200 is a little better with the no jiggle button.
Excerpt: This is my second Fujifilm Finepix camera. The first one I wore out I used so much. The picture quality speaks for itself - when you say a picture is worth a thousand words, it's true when you're looking to compare cameras. You've gotta get to a store and take pictures to see for yourself the quality. All the specs in the world doesn't always make the difference like seeing the quality for yourself.
Excerpt: This is a wonderful camera. It can be used as point and shoot or you can make manual adjustments. With 18X optical zoom and 3 X digital zoom I can get good shots of my pet Prairie Dogs and the many birds that visit our feeder.
Great camera with good zoom and good picture quality

Excerpt: This camera came in handy while shooting my daughter playing sports. Indoor volleyball doesn't allow for a flash so the ISO 1600 was a life saver. Has sveral shooting modes including aperture priority and shutter priority. I was able to capture the bat hitting the ball in siftball games. Reviewer received a sample of this product.
The Fuji FinePix S5200 Zoom Digital camera is Great!

Excerpt: The Fuji - FinePix S5200 10x Zoom Digital Camera w/ 5.1 mega-pixel is great for professional and every day use. The menu's are easy to locate and use. You can use the auto settings or choose your own. I love this camera and have used it on many occasions at my children's school for school book photos. I've also taken Senior pictures. I'm also very happy with the video clip feature. I have never been disappointed in this camera.
Excerpt: I purchased my Fuji as my second digital. The first was a Kodak Easy Share and it was ok but I was never overly pleased with it. The Fuji has just blown me away with the endless capabilities it offers as well as it's ease of use! Picture quality is fantastic and is every bit as good as my husbands expensive film camera that he uses for professional shots at weddings and such.
Excerpt: I love the flexibility and options on this camera. I purchased it as an extra to my collection. My 4 year old granddaughter wanted to use it. It took about an hour of her playing with it to figure out how it works. She took some great pictures. This is a great camera for any level of user.
Excerpt: Recently bought the fuji fine pix s5200 and we love it. Its super easy to use, easy to load photos and takes really great pics. My 5 year old daughter used it (with supervision of course!!) at a local aquarium and some of her pics were better than mine!!
