Summary: Innovative features mask flaws in the fundamental aspects of the S5700. It really is a shame, because the camera almost epitomizes the current needs of a particularly large market; that is, one that requires a good level of manual control, in a small 'bridge' body and for a reasonable price. Results can at times be quite pleasing, but are temperamental and inconsistent with Fujifilm's claims. An improved sensor?
Pros: Image stabilisation, useful features, weight and size.
Cons: Fringing, limited colour options, Raw mode curiously omitted from this upgrade.
Conclusion: The Fuji Finepix S5700 has two big plus points for anyone looking for a digital camera with a longer lens. The first is its low price tag and the second is ease of use. Picture quality is not perfect, but taking the price of the camera into account I cannot be too critical.
Pros: Design and style - ease of use for a camera with these features
Excerpt: The Fujifilm FinePix S5700 houses 7.1Mp that will be ideal for A4 prints. It comes with both a 2.5in LCD screen and a digital viewfinder, while the ISO range reaches ISO 1600 - handy for low-light conditions - and if you enjoy taking the occasional video, the S5700 is capable of a 640x480 resolution recording at 30 frames a second. The back of the camera is laid out neatly and although there's no protective screen, the viewing is crisp and clear.
Excerpt: A few years back the market was flooded with a particular superzoom camera that everyone wanted to get their hands on – the Fujifilm FinePix S5300. It offered excellent performance at a very attractive price, which was a hard to match combination. Years later Fujifilm has just launched its latest in the series, the S5700, and this time, we at Tech2 will personally check out what the hype is all about.
Conclusion: Insgesamt ist die Finepix S5700 zwar die günstigste Megazoom und bietet eine befriedigende Leistung und gute Ausstattung, die ihr eine Platzierung relativ weit oben in unserer Bestenliste beschert. Doch es lohnt sich, 60 Euro Aufpreis für das überlegene Schwestermodell S6500fd zu investieren: Die Kosten-Nutzen-Relation spricht klar für die S6500fd.
Conclusion: Dijital fotoğraf makineleri dünyası kompakt ve SLR modeller arasında ikiye bölünmüş durumda. Kullanıcılar ya bas-çek mantığıyla alabilecekleri en yüksek performansı kompakt makinelerde arıyor ya da tüm ayarlamaları elle yapabilecekleri ve algılayıcıya düşen piksel kalitesi en yüksek SLR modellere yöneliyor.
Pros: +, Yüksek zum, +, Video kayıt kalitesi
