Excerpt: I bought this camera back in 2008 for a business trip. I chose it over a 10 meg camera even though it was only a 7 meg mainly due to it's body shape; it makes the camera easier for me to use. It also had a nice zoom, that had a nice feel to it.
Excerpt: Very nice intro to SLR type camera. loaded with every poss extra needed for a good quality photo. Easy to use, light, good zoom, mad macro (will focus on lines of a star filter..when fitted ...) Picked mine up for £50 Good zoom range (10x) Good shutter range (Down to 4sec) make for nice S-FX shots..

Excerpt: 2852 pictures later I still like this camera, and although I have recently upgraded to a panasonic fz18, the fuji s5700 has served exactly the purpose I wanted it to. It was a replacement for a kodak point and shoot, and I wanted a camera I could learn more about photography with, and a high zoom.
Summary: The Fuji S700 is an amazing value! I've yet to see another camera with such features in this price range. Some of the simple features that make this camera an excellent value are; a threaded lens for using optional filters and adapters for astophotography, and the use of standard AA batteries is a...
Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Features, Quiet, Strong Construction
