Reviews and Problems with Fujifilm FinePix S5100 / FinePix S5500
Showing 1-8 of 8
looks robust but is flimsy
10 September 2006
Summary: I have had both the S5000 and the S5100 I was disapointed when my S5000 power switch stopped working after 18 months, but I was happy with the picture quality. I replaced it with the S5100, it has a slightly better feature set over the S5000 (in particular shutter speed choices) while on a trip to Niagara Falls, I was unfortunate to give my camera a slight jolt (and I mean slight) after that it wouldn't power up.
Summary: I had an S5000 but it dropped it and broke. So I decided to buy this model since I loved the S5000 so much. They took away so many of the great options and quality that the S5000 had...so now I just use a small Fuji pocket digital camera and this one sits on the shelf. It is very blurry in low light and has very little shake control. I would suggest going with the S5000 even with lower Megapixels it is much better quality.
Summary: I received this camera for my birthday to replace my Sony Mavica (RIP). I really don't care for it. The picture quality is average considering the price and Fuji has still not sent me my $50 rebate ( 12 weeks out...) I'm just not very pleased overall.
Summary: [...] Now the PROS: Let me get to the point, the camera is good with a excellent feature of being able to take "RAW"(equivalent to Negative on regular FILM)images. In manual mode you can take indoor pictures without flash, so you will not that glar from Flash or red eye. Now the cons: The camera come with only xD card type.
Summary: First, I am an amateur photographer. I just wanted something to take pictures at my son's basketball game. Pretty simple task. I love the look and feel of this camera. It looks great, fits well in you hand, controls are easy to figure out, and I really like the protective hood. It starts up fast and is very quick from picture to picture. I really wanted to love this camera but I could not take a decent picture. If your subject is within flash range, you're fine.
Excerpt: Questa fotocameraa ricorda molto le reflex quanto ad estetica, ma quanto a contenuti devo dire che lascia un pò a desiderare. Si tratta della sorella minore della S7000 dotata di un eccellente zoom 10x che va da 37 a 370 mm, un vero cannone! Anche se, come si vede, a fronte di una lunghissima focale tele, il grandangolo non esiste! 37mm son davvero tanti per fare una foto di interni. Però bisogna riconoscere che quanto ad apertura massima è davvero ...
Summary: Grundsätzlich ist die S5500 eine gut ausgestattete Kamera. Ein robustes Gehäuse und einfache Handhabung runden das Gesamtbild ab. Im Vergleich zum Vorgängermodell S5000 (absolut baugleich) wurden einige Details verbessert (Langbelichtung, Menüführung). Aber leider muss sich die S5500 mit einem einfachen 4 Megapixel CCD Sensor begnügen der im Vergleich zum 3,1 Megapixel Super CCD HR Sensor der S5000 schlicht keinen Stich hat.
Summary: Hola, He tenido esta cámara 4 meses, hace unas 3 semanas que la vendí, y la verdad me esperaba mucho más de esta cámara. Estéticamente muy bonita y todo eso... pero a la hora de hacer fotos(que es lo que cuenta no?)muy, muy flojita. Mucho ruido, el zoom no estaba mal, pero al no tener establilizador....y además no tenía zapata para flasch. Un saludo.
