Fujifilm Finepix S5800: great "semi-pro" camera!!!
23 January 2011
Summary: My husband bought me this camera nearly 2years ago and I LOVE it to bits. I wanted a digital SLR but at the time but due to cost was unable to get 1. A friend who is a professiona photographer suggested i get a "bridge camera", and this is what this is. I personally like fuji as a make and feel the products are easy to use and good quality but not too expensive.
Pros: great quality photos, lots of settings, pro-like camera, good zoom
Summary: I bought this camera last year, prior to my DREAM trip to Peru- where I spent a lot of time in some very harsh weather conditions, whilst doing the INca trail in the Andes mountains and various other high altitude (very high altitude!) parts of the Andes. Anyways, this camera is one of my FAVOURITE "loves of my life".
Pros: Excellent value for money, jam packed with pro-like camera features, 10X optical zoom !
Cons: occassionally , some of the pictures have violet coloured circles in them
Summary: I bought this camera 12 months ago for £100 on amazon. The price it is advertised at now is more than double that (£264.99). Therefore, my first recommendation is: WAIT FOR A SPECIAL OFFER! This is an amazing camera . We took it to New Zealand for a month's holiday and we've taken some of the most spectacular photos I've ever seen.
Summary: Right where should I start I have had this camera for over 1 year now and cannot be without it anywhere I go I have to take this beauty with me. The only thing I can think of that is wrong with the camera is that I can't take it out when I go clubbing :( with a 8.0 MP quality is more than enough to print top quality photo's There is a good optical zoom: 10 x that delivers high image quality when you need to zoom in on the most enjoyable moments of all Friend or Family.
Excerpt: "HOW can I even begin to put into words how I feel about this Camera!? I've had alot of crap with digital Camera's (Other Brands) then I thought, right no more wasting money on Camera's... I'm going to get an AWESOME camera that I can keep for years! Well Ladies & Gentlemen... THIS is it! The photo's are superb. Honestly the best camer ever. The macro shots are beautiful, and makes it almost efforless to get the perfect photograph. Here ...
Pros: Beautiful Shots, Awesome Macro Settings, Also takes fairly good video's !
Cons: Maybe the size of it, but it is an SLR . It's to be expected .
