Fujifilm FinePix S5100

PC Magazine
7 February 2005
  • Conclusion: The 4MP FinePix S5100 conventional CCD outperforms the previous model's proprietary SuperCCD HR image sensor. It's speedy and takes excellent pictures with a minimum of fuss, and it would be an unbeatable value if it had antishake technology.
  • Pros: Affordable, compact and speedy. Takes bright, crisp, and well-exposed pictures. RAW support and an AF assist lamp.
  • Cons: Lacks important refinements, like antishake technology, a real-time histogram, and a hot shoe. Manual focus is inconvenient to use. Small (1.5-inch) LCD. Uses less common xD memory format. Charger and rechargeable batteries not included.

  • Conclusion: When we reviewed the S5500/5100's predecessor a year ago, Phil commented ' Throughout my time with the S5000 I was left wondering what would have been like had Fujifilm used a standard four or five megapixel CCD '. Well now we know; a lot better.

  • Excerpt: The FinePix S5100 ($399) is an updated version of Fuji's popular S5000 ultra zoom camera. The biggest change here is that Fuji has left the SuperCCD sensor behind in exchange for a traditional 4 Megapixel CCD.
  • Pros: Good photo quality for the most part, Stylish, mini-SLR design, Full manual controls (though somewhat inflexible), AF-assist lamp, Great redeye test performance, Excellent movie mode, Supports conversion lenses, Great battery life, RAW image format supported, Can be used as a webcam (Windows only)
  • Cons: Noticeable vignetting in images, Noise levels a little above average, Small LCD, low res EVF; both are hard to see in low light, Poor macro test performance, Manual focus feature poorly implemented, Full shutter speed range only available in "M" mode, Poor bundle: tiny memory card, no rechargeabl...

Fuji FinePix S5500

Pocket Lint
7 February 2005
  • Conclusion: The 5500's a pleasing little camera (bar the EVF) that rewards your efforts with nice shots. The AF is a tad slow for my liking and the lack of image stabilization means, at longer focal lengths, camera shake rears its ugly head; a tripod will be a necessary accessory in lower lighting conditions.
  • Pros: Design and handling are great, the lens offers plenty of scope and the colour screen is small but (almost) perfectly formed.
  • Cons: The EVF is poor and the camera eats alkaline AA batteries faster than a swarm of locusts.

  • Conclusion: Il rapporto prezzo-prestazioni per la nuova Fuji s5500 è davvero molto buono. Rispetto al modello precedente sono molte le migliorie e gli aggiornamenti che tuttavia non hanno intaccato quanto di buono era già disponibile.
