Even though it was very easy to begin using, it has enough "options" on it that I'm still learning how to do new stuff.

I am not so happy with this camera. I had a very cheap sony cyber shot prior to this and honestly say it took better pics. The slow shutter speed is very frustrating with my small children - I am not even doing sports! The color saturation seems to be off, makes blonde hair look red, etc. No image stabilization. The dials on the controls get turned way too easily. I am sorry but there is just not a whole lot of good things I can say about this camera. I take photos as a sideline career and have nearly had to stop until I am able to afford a new camera.

This is by far the best purchase I have ever made. I use this camera weekly I have taken 45,000 digital images with this camera in 30 months of ownership. I want to get the S-5200 to utilize the upgraded features. All my other camera are film and Nikon I love them but none of them can hold a candle to the Fuji s-5000.

First and only digital i have ever used, i love it. The size is similar to that of a film 35 mm, and it has many options. I really enjoy being able to experiment alot and can review on the camera or put it on the laptop to see a larger, clearer pic. I also love being able to switch from color to b&w in only monents. My biggest problem is the delay in shutter, i know there is a way to adjust it some cause certain settings provide a more realistic press and take instead of press, delay, take..

Takes nice photos but the slow AF and shutter is annoying. I have religated it to studio still life work only. I also have a Pentax P30t for film.

It's hard to take a bad picture with this camera. I've taken over 7,000 pictures with it in the last 2 years, and think it's definitely a winner in design, build, and quality.

I waited to late to switch to Digital but I picked the Fuji s-5000. That is the best camera I have ever bought I have taken 40,000 pictures as of March 25, 2006 with this one camera. The next closest camera is the Nikon N-80 with 335 rolls of film on it that is almost 8,000 film photographs.

The images come out very vibrant and colorful. I really like how you can easily change to black and white.. I do not care for how slow the shutter is sometimes I seem to miss my shot. Maybe I need to learn more about this camera. This is my first digital camera ever.

Great camera, only lacks in stabilization features of the newer cameras. If I could add one more item to my wish list for this camera it would be an additional zoom lense. I like outdoor photography and sometimes distance can be a factor.

Very light and compact. Takes very nice photos. Has video capabilities (length depends on size of memory card.) I have taken very nice photos of hummingbirds and flowers with this camera. I wish it would load images quicker and take less time between focus and shooting, but overall a very good camera.

Loves. Ease of use great photo's with no trouble Hates. No point and shoot there is a delay when you take a picture which sometimes means you don't always get the picture you want unlesss you can anticipate what happens next.

I have loved using this camera. When I held this camera in my hands for the first time, I had to have it. It sits comfortable in your hand and it doesn't weigh much. I used the Fuji Finepix 40i before and because I work off the coast of Norway most of the time I had no optical zoom to take the coastlines. With the s5000 I had 10x optical zoom. The colours are very vibrant, for some too much so, but for me just right since I usually take flowers. Of course I bought this camera more than 2 years ago and now I want more pixels to blow up parts of the picture and I also wanted a stabilizer. So I recently bought the Panasonic Lumix fz30. I'm not too thrilled about the macro function since pictures do not have as much detail and I would like them to be sharper. But 12x optical zoom, stabilized and 8M pixels are really nice. Corinne

I love my camera. I use the Auto Function for all the pictures I take, although I have tried some of the other settings as well. I also like the continious shooting mode and the easy handling of it. I do however, have difficulty with night shots even with the night shooting setting. If I do not use the flash at night, my pictures are very blurry and so not good at all. I have taken a few interesting pictures of the moon with the flash where the foreground is illuminated, but it is not what I really want for my night photos.

I LOVED this camera when I first got it two years ago. It was my first digital and I was in heaven. I bought it because it has both manual & auto settings. I was used to my mother's 30 year old 35mm Canon! I really wanted to spend the least amount of money on a digital while keeping the manualy capabilities. The only complaint is that it is not compatible with another flash. The flash on the camera works well, however if you are using the camera for work, it's not good enough. Next digital purchase: Canon EOS 20d I'm saving the $$ now. :)

This is my first digital camera and was skeptical about getting a fuji since I already own a canon SLR. However, I researched it and found it to be very good for its price. I dont have much to complain about except its small display screen and when you use the timer you have to set it everytime a shot is taken. Taking videos is also excellent. A great camera for such a great price.

The S5000 has good flexability and good resolution. I wish it had interchangeable lenses. There is a slight delay between pushing the button and actually snapping the picture. The digital zoom degrades the picture, as all digital zooms do, and you can't tell when the optical zoom switching to digital. The longest exposure possible is 2 seconds.

The Fuji S5000 is the camera that started my discovery into the world of photography. As a point and shoot camera only, I believe it serves its purpose fairly well and has good stabilization and settings. Although, as with most point and shoot cameras, there is only so much it can do. I will hopefully be upgrading very soon! For someone looking to upgrade to a 'better' point and shoot, this is a great camera.

My Fuji FinePix S5000 is my first digital camera. I've been a camera "snob" for most of my life and I really enjoy this. Granted it's not as quick as the true SLR's but I've gotten better with my timing and anticipation of my subjects so I actually am pleased that this camera taught me something.

I am just starting off in Photography. This is the 3rd Fuji digital camera I have owned and by far it is the best. It's an easy point and shoot camera (for someone who never uses the camera to it's full extent). I have found this camera to produce great color. It is slow at taking the shot though. I intend on taking some courses and learning my camera a little better. If that becomes a success for me than I would like to step up to an SLR.

I very much like the ease of use of the Fugi S5000. It is very portable, and allows for some creativity in manual, appeture, and shutter speed priority modes. I do wish that it had interchangable lenses, and a greater range of appature settings. But for my first digital camera, it was a good choice.

I love it's optical zoom capabilities. The camera works very well with the wide conversion and teleconversion lenses available by FujiFilm. I am still perfecting using the Macro option which I believe to be very good. The light metering is a wonderful tool I discovered by accident. I love that I can collect my images with CCD Raw and perform my own darkroom editing on my computer. I can not think of any complaints of my camera at this time!

I like this camera but plan to get a better one with a higher megapixle soon.

I have been using this one for almost 2 years and I have taken 4,500 shots with it. I like it because it has a 10x optical zoom. When combined with the digital zoom (which I have NEVER used), you can get 22x zoom. I think this was a good choice for me. It has the common priority modes and full manual capabilities as well.

I really like this camera. It has a great zoom which is why I chose it in the first place. But I am real happy with the quality of the pictures it takes.

Okay camera but just not the quality of an SLR. It has been my first digital and I believe that it has been a good one to start out with. Occasionally it actually gives me what I want.

This was my first digital camera. Nice SLR style camera, you can control Shutter speeds, and F-stops but cannot interchange lenses. If your serious about photography, I recommend going with a SLR type of digital camera.

The Fuji FinePix S5000 is a versatile, capable "prosumer" digital camera. I love the 10x optical zoom as well as the macro capability. The "quick-snap-keep-last-five-shots" feature makes it much easier to capture a particular moment. I have been very pleased with nearly every aspect of this camera. It is easy on batteries, too. I can't think of any big complaints.

A little slow starting up. Focusing is also slow, and next to impossible to get a night shot even when using a tripod and the timer.

I like that you can choose to have manual or automatic settings. You can turn it on put it on auto and just take a quick pic. But if you want to work with the camera and take a serious picture you can put it on manual.

I don't know too much about the technicalities of cameras but I did choose mine on the speed. It takes photographs quickly and that's important when there are too little toddlers who never stand still. Any problems I may perceive are probably due to the users lack of knowledge;)

Great detail and sharpness. Excellent auto focus function as well as wonderful macro mode. Very susceptible to hot temperature (battery drainage). Excellent feel and materials. Best bang for the buck.

I am giving this a 4 because it is my first digital and it is really easy for my family and I to use. I have dropped this camera out of a moving car and a few other places and it has never afeected it at all. The one thing that i do not like about it is the slow start up. It takes about 6 seconds before it is ready to go. I have missed quite a few great moments because of this.

Keeping in mind it's low price, its a good camera with nearly all the features an SLR would have. Too much noise in low light is one of the disadvantages. One drawback is the lack of hot shoe for those who like flash studio photography.

Too much noise in low light and colours are not so saturated. But overall and thinking of its low price you can handle many situations.

I love this camera, it's color and sharpness can't be beat. It's closeup's is super. On a sunny day, you can make any shot a winner. The drawbacks, on an overcast day, it won't focus clearly, I've given up on overcast, rainy days. It can be done but the machine trys to constantly readjust. The other complaint. The Time between pushing down the shoot button and picture taking, it is slow... one must anticipate and be prepared, or pre-focus, hold and wait for the perfect shot before you are timed out. Can't beat the quality of the pictures though.

The X10 optical zoom is the strongest attribute of the camera. I assume that the other capabilities are fairly standard amongst digital cameras. The worst feature is the time taken to store pictures when taking 5 frames, during action photography.

I purchased this camera last July because I was ready to move up to something with more manual settings than what I had. I didn't have a lot of cash to spend, so I researched and decided on this one. I absolutely LOVE it! Does everything I need and then some, and I will be using it until I jump into a DLSR. I love that I can select "Auto" for point & shoot snapshots, or go totally manual for completely creative experimentation. The only two things that I wish this camera had are the ability to put an external flash on it, and also the ability to do time exposures. :) Aside from that, it's the most fun camera I've ever owned!

This camera is very comfortable to hold but can be inreliable of the focusing. There are also too controls that need to be accessed that are located in a very invonvenient position on the back of the camera. I have however been very pleased with the majority of the pictures I have taken.

I recently was given this camera as a gift for my 14th birthday. I'm still trying to learn everything it has to offer through trial and error. i cant wait to get out there and get more nature shots.

This was a good beginning camera. I did not like its inability to use other lenses without having to use an adapter ring which often took a long time to put on resulting in missed shots. Basic function and image quality was very good; easy to learn the funtions as well. Records 10 sec. video pics. Time lapse between when pressed the button for picture and when the camera took the shot. Resulted in several blurred images and destroyed pictures. Great camera for the beginner looking to get further into photography b/c it will teach you the basics and not kill your wallet.

Excellent focal range (10 x optical 3x digital) Almost all of the options of an SLR. Excellent layout and easy to use. AF can be tricky to figure out and picture quality is not as sharp as some. Comes with a collar so you are able to use filters if you wish.

The S5000 from Fuji is just what I need when I bought it; Large zoom range, good AF speed, raw images, easy to set when in manual mode.... good hardware at all, it's a very good starting point for beginners/amateurs, but I like it so much & I'll take very good images...

Camera shop owner is a friend of mine. When I went in to buy new digital camera, he talked me into this one because of the kind of photography I wanted to do (I thought I wanted the Cannon EOS digital). It's great for me, but still need to learn all the bells and whistles. Later I would like to upgrade to a camera with exchangeable lenses for telephoto work. We have a lot of wildlife in the area.

Very quick to focus, even under low lighting conditions. Zoom is one of the quicker ones I have seen for this price range. I like it a lot better then the kodak, olympus, hp, canon models I have tested. I was surprised with the distance of the flash in a dining room light. I zoomed and used the flash.. and the result was very pleasing. I estimated the shot to be 20 feet. I had a fuji before this is a replacement.. but I did test a lot of other cameras before purchasing this one

The Fuji Finepix s5000 is a very good camera, and I am still learning to master it. I have seen some very fantatstic shots taken with this Fuji. I do wish however that there were more choices on ISO settings. I did not care much for the Software that came with my camera so and I was using ACDsee 3.1, it is a good programe but it lacked some editing features. I just purchased Photoshop Elements 2.0 and hope to edit better photos with this software! All in all, the Fuji Finepix s5000 is a very good camera...paid $299.00 at Rutz Camera.

This camera takes excellent pictures much better than my Kodak cx6200. I love this camera! It can do all the work for you or you can switch it to completely manual.

This is my first digital camera. My wife has a fuji digital camera that she is going to sell, because she likes this S5000 so much. It is a great first camera with a good deal of abilities. The colors of the photos are great, giving us photos worthy of framing. It is just not as advanced as I need it to be. I have a 30 yr old Chinon SLR film camera that I took great pictures with, but I am too cheap to process the film before I saw what I did. Now I can with Digital photography. I upgraded only because I can afford the better cameras now. S5000 is a great beginner camera!

I got this camera for Christmas last year. I had my heart set on it for quite some time; and the longer I had this camera, the greater my love for photography grew. Despite some previous complaints, it DOES have a manual focus option (the switch to the left side of the flash unlocks the auto-focus). I love this camera and it has taken AWESOME shots! Professional quality portraits of people have also been taken. I love it and will hold onto it until I can afford a pro-level digital SLR. The only thing I really dont like about the camera is that it lacks a hot shoe for attaching additional flashes. Other than that, the camera is wonderful in just about every way! GET IT! It combines the ease of a point-and-shoot camera with the quality and features of a digital SLR. Additionally, This camera has a zoom equivalent to 370 mm built RIGHT IN!!! Awesome camera and great buy!

A brilliant little camera, that thinks it's an SLR. Good image quality, and an incredible 10x Zoom.

I like this camera because it is small but will do as much as my Cannon camera does. The only thing I don't like about digital cameras is the waite time when turning on . When printed my pic's they are as good as my Cannon, as long as I use at least 3M settings. I have not used all the setting yet but am happy with the Camera so far.

This is my secound digital cam , and I really do enjoy using the s5000 .
I have the wide and telephoto lens , they give me almost twice as much range , If you dont mind spending the extra dough , you will be glad you have them.
My only dislike is the s5000 is slow on the trigger and long shots are harder to keep focused . But learning how to use the s5000 which takes a little time and careful study of the manuel ,will make it a versatle Camera.

OK - I'm back now that I've been using it for a few months. I still am simply loving this camera! Don't believe the reviews that mention there is too much "digital noise". I've blown pictures up to 11 x 14 and beyond and have seen absolutely NOTHING wrong with them! The 10 x zoom is fantastic! Also love the burst mode, macro mode and the ability to go from fully auto (which takes great pictures!) to semi-manual to fully manual! Great camera for the price! Would recommend it to anyone!

I have never owned a really good camera ever. This is the best camera I have ever purchased and I quit love it. It has been fairly simple to figure out and to use. I have had some very good success with it and I am SUCH an amateur so if I can take great pictures with this camera, anyone can.

The Fuji Finepix s500 is my first digital camera per se. My sister owned a small Kodak but I needed a camera that offered a better photo quality for my Architecture course. I have taken this camera on a trip to Paris, Africa and Dubai. It was brilliant and some of the photos I have taken are super both on-screen and after developing. I am still not completely familiar with my camera but I have figured out a few things with the help of the manual and I think it is brilliant. I love the way the batteries (Ni-mh) last forever and take only a few hours to re-charge. The camera settings are good enough for me although I do (grudgingly) agree that it is slow in taking the actual picture after the button has been pressed. In the five months that I have owned it, the camera has performed splendidly throughout a week long trip in Paris (Notre Dame, La Louvre, Sacre Cour, la Tour Eiffel, Parc de la Villete, Villa Savoy, and as many boulevards as one can manage), white water rafting in South Africa (I had to take the pictures after the rapids- but the scenery was beautiful), an incredible safari in the Kruger National Park (I didn’t see any lions but again, the scenery was beautiful), a whirlwind visit to Cape town all inclusive of a trip to the top of table mountain (all I saw was cloud…but the views from the cable car were incredible), Cape Point (the sea was amazing), Signal Hill (at sunset- I have never experienced such a splendid sunset in my life), and a boat ride to Seal Island (my first real life encounter with seals) and a desert safari in Dubai. The photos I took while on these various holidays exceeded my expectations, especially because I have never taken serious photographs before and because this is the first proper camera I have owned. The camera also serves me well in my course because I am forever having to take photos of the models I make and the sites I visit, its brilliant to be able to have instant access to my photos rather than have to wait a few days for them to be developed. Also, I can take my laptop to university and work with the photos in the studio as I am making the models. I can go on forever about how much I love the camera, but I wont!

Lots of features for what basically amounts to a point-and-shoot. It's a great compromise--a good way to learn digital photography without having to shell out twice as much $$ for an SLR.

The Fuji S5000 has great color, it's lite weight plus easy to handle. I guess the only thing about the camera that I don't like is it doesn't have a manual focus. Or if it did I didn't read how to use it. Plus it has auto zoom which drains the battery.

This camera is exceeding my expectations. I have read many many reviews online about this camera and even thought so many complained about image quality I just had to try it for myself.

Pros - Camera is lightweight, 10X optical zoom lens (remember to stay out of digital range with the zoom because it only magnifies the image--there is a line you can watch so you don't get into the digital zoom, batteries last forever (NIMH rechargeables), images are beautiful (make sure to take pictures at highest settings for best results), continuous shot( camera takes 5 frames in a row with intervals "as short as" 0.2 sec)is AWESOME. LCD screen color is vibrant and easy to see. Putting the adapter ring on makes it easy to use it to support the camera for a more stable shot and protects your lens. Camera feels perfect in your hand. Easy to delete photos. Instruction guide clear and easy to understand. Easy to upload pictures to computer. Fuji software is acceptable, but Photoshop Elements, or Photo Explosion is better. Professional design.

Cons- Has a bit of a shutter lag (between when you push the shutter button and when actual picture is taken. Slowest shutter speed available is 2 seconds. Subject if moving will have already changed position so that can lead to missed shots. If you can prepare for the shot you can start taking picture early. Lowest ISO is 200, an ISO of 100 would have nice. Didn't really care for AUTO settings, but SPORTS mode is awesome. Have captured many awesome baseball games especially using continuous shot. I have not noticed the 6MP shot being that different from 3 MP. The 6MP shots are interpolated so if you are wondering what that is you might look into it. Only comes with 16MB memory card. No exposure information for photos in playback mode.

It sounds like there a lot of negatives, but really there are not. I am totally impressed with this camera and I was a very picky buyer and looked at many cameras and I just kept coming back to this one over and over and now I know why. During a recent baseball tournament we took photos and were able to sell them to other parents. They were very impressed and said they wished they could take professional pictures like I was able to. I only used sports mode and continous shot and just set up the shot and was able to catch the most awesome action shots. And you will be able to!! The people complaining about this camera must be comparing it to more expensive models.

GO out and try it just for a week I promise you that you won't be sorry.

Elizabeth

The fuji finepix s5000 digital camera is great for all sorts of shots,it works like a 35mm slr the pictures are crisp and clear.The zooming is out of this world. I replaced my old pentex slr 35mm for this camera.I did alot of research on this camera before I bought it and I think I made the right choice.I do alot of night shots and the flash on the fuji reaches father then any other digitals I have used.Besides digital is cheaper in the long run,nomore wasting film aand spending money on getting film developed. The only thing I don't like about fuji finepix is that it doesn't have a hot shot and when you sit on manual you have to use the buttons to control the focusing.I like the the way my old pentex slr focus better. I do miss using my 35mm,but I don't miss spending all that money on film. I do love the fuji finepix s5000 alot too.

This camera is hardy but lightweight. In ever instance of challenge, I've been able to use the extensive features of fully manual and automatic controls to achieve the shot I was going for. I'm especially satisfied with this camera, in particular because of the great price, and because of the versitility. While I master some range of photography with this camera, I will use it for as long as I can while I save for a newer, better one.

Love this camera so far! Takes EXCELLENT pictures and all the crud I've heard about "noise" is bogus so far. In extreme night shots perhaps--but I bet you can eliminate a lot of the noise if you play with settings. I love it. Feels great, looks great, takes excellent pictures. GET A TRIPOD! Karma Wilson

Just lovin' it!! Upgraded from the Fujifilm 2600Z to the S5000. Love the feel, weight and shape. Love the 10 x zoom!! Love the 5 x continuous shots (or up to 40 but a bit slower). Macros are also good but remember to take the adapter ring off before shooting. Have yet to get into the manual modes, but looking forward to it. I've caught some great action shots, which is why I bought the camera. So far am very very happy and would recommend it to anyone who can afford it. Feel free to e-mail me if you want more info... You can see pictures I've taken with it in my gallery.

I love this camera. I have used a Canon AE 1 in the past and really enjoyed it, however its a drag waiting to see your work. I've also used the Kodak DX6490, which I also enjoyed. The Fuji is better only because it has many extra options.

This is one of the best cameras I have ever had the pleasure of using. It has totally replaced my 35mm Canon Rebel-G. I purchased it in February of 2004 and haven't bought a single roll of film since. Some of the best features I really like are the 10X optical zoom lens, great picture quality, continuous shooting mode and especially the movie mode. It works excellent for filming my two daughter's dance recitals and performances that last 2 to 4 minutes. It's not so bad on batteries either....and i shoot every day with it. I love it and would recommend it to anyone!!!

I have enjoyed my FinePix S5000 camera very much. Photo quality and clarity is beyond my expectation for a digital camera. My only complaint is probably something I just need to adjust to is the response time from the point the button is pressed to the point the photo is actually captured. It's way too slow. But I'm use to the instand snap of my Pentax K1000.

I think it is a great camera for someone who is just starting with digita photography. The price is great! Now I'm starting to know what to look for in a camera. I've had it since Feb/04. One this that i really dislike about it is that it take too long to take the picture. If I want a picture of a bird or somethig in motion when I hit the button...by the time it take the picture the bird is gone. Perhaps It's something that I still have not learn to manage.

Its an easy to use Digital Camera. It has 10X optical zoom which I like the most. It has all manual settings which gives me creative satisfaction over my photographs.

It's a good camera to learn with for it's ease of use, but the image resolution isn't that good due to Fuji's intense JPEG file compression. There's also noticable color bleeding, especially with reds. The S5000 does take excellent portrait and macro shots however. I just find the image resolution a bit too noisy for landscapes, even in RAW while using a tripod.

Overall the camera is a good one as a backup. Currently, and unfortunately, it is my primary camera. I intend on upgrading to a full digital SLR as the S5000 is an "SLR Like" meaning you can attach lenses to the end, much like many camcorders on the market. I bought 2 wide angle lenses for it and both had a large noticable black ring around the edges because the length of the lens; I returned both. I haven't tried the available telephoto lens. The picture quality is very good. It's many options make it well suited to shoot various types of photos, however you will want to stay away from the Auto setting as much as possible as it tends to use too high of an ISO setting making the photo's seem grainy, even when using the available 6 megapixel setting. The Super CCD chip allows you to record over 6 megapixels, although effective is only 3.1 mp. The quality increase is definately noticable though, especially when shooting RAW. I would recommend this camera to the beginner photographer, or anyone who wants a very versatile camera as a weekend or backup camera.

I've had my Camera for 3 Months. I Love it !!! It's simple and it won't let you down when you use auto mode. I have 170 fantastic pictures taken a few weeks ago and printed out from an on line photo developer. These pictures were of a trip to Las Vegas, Death Valley and Mt. Whitney. The camera performed excellently around the clock.I shoot at 1600 x 1200 on a 256 card. Lots of Room. Battery life is exceptional. Does well with my home studio lighting for portraits. Another few months and this camera will make me a world famous photographer. *smile*
Dreams and Photography, take the Fuji S5000 for a spin around the dancefloor.
You won't be dissapointed. Gezzz, I sound like a salesman.
Oh well,,,It's a good little Camera.

I like this camera. Without spending a ton of money it simulates the controls of a 35mm. It has a long lens which can use wide angle and telephoto adaptors. The auto mode is accurate. Viewing and deleting images is simple. It does have the ability to take short movies but I don't see a reason to need that. I miss having a true manual focus. The auto focus can get confused at times especially with a busy background. The manual focus is difficult to use and there is no way to "ride" focus. But the auto does have a continous focus mode which is helpful but it will use battery life. I recommend this camera for amatuers and anyone looking to be creative at a budget price.

This is my first digitial camera that I just purchased a few months ago. I really like it due to the fact of it being digitial and I can see the pictures right away. I also enjoy the video mode on it. I really do have a lot to learn about this camera though. I dont like the fact that it has a hard time focusing on things that are either 3 feet away or 30 feet away. Maybe that is me, maybe its the camera. I havent develpoed anything yet from this camera, but when I bought it I was told that the pictures should develop well. I feel like i need to go get it checked out and find out why its not doing what i think it should be doing.

An excellent camera!! Really good grip, excellent photo quality and lots of options to adjust to the situation. The only bad things I can say about this camera is that it takes a little long to load after turning on. Also, the flash has a tendency to be exceptionally intense when photographing people. But otherwise, an excellent camera and a good buy for the price. Easy to use, fantastic quality, and great features!

A good all round digital camera. Easy to use from simple point and shoot auto mode to more serious totally manual modes. Good easy to use and logical menu system. Takes you beyond the 'snapshot' camera into the more semi-pro world. 10x zoom is definately one of the best features. Takes 55mm filters, tele and wide angle conversion lenses. SLR type body and looks make it easy to handle. Fantastic price for a digital camera with all the features it has. Only one niggle .jpg mode is a little over compressed leaving very minor 'compression artifacts' on the occassional photo however, pictures can be saved in 'raw ccd' format totally uncompressed this corrects all errors. Get at least a 128Mb card for this (16 shots raw mode).

I just got this camera for X-Mas so I'm still learning about it that's why I give it an 8, I'm sure it'll be a 10 once I get comfortable with it. The only thing I don't like so far is that there is no hot shoe for external flash, and the only choices for color options are b&w, chrome, and standard. It would be great if you could take shots in Sepia, negetive, etc.

Now that I have used both the S5000 and now own the S7000, I wanted to get back and post more on my 1st review.

I find the 5000 a great camera for the entry to mid level shooter. It does lack many of the advanced features of the S7000, but thats expected.

However if your new to photography the S5000 is by far the best choice in any 3.1 pixel digital camera.

After learning how to set up each shot you will soon be taking great pictures!

Shop online and you can find this unit for as little as $300.00. It retails for $500.00.

This is my 2nd Fuji Finepix Digital camera. I am well pleased with the results, the ease with which one can learn to operate it and the quality of the finished products.

I like the pictures that it takes although I was always lead to believe that a digital camera was much easier to use than a regular 35. I have found, as I think quite a few others have, that I get the best pictures when using almost all manual settings. When I take pictures using the automatic settings, a lot of times they get all blurry and out of focus, especially the shots at night without the flash. I do love the fact that you can review the pictures right away and only print those that you really like.

Great 10x zoom lens. Improved low light sensitivity. Completely manual mode including manual focus. Nice auto-bracket mode. Good selection of focus and metering modes. Auto-focus still fails from time to time even with the assist light.

In general the digicam works well.
As long as you get the settings correct when setting up a shot you will be very impressed with the out come.

If you don't you will become very frustrated, take 3 or 4 shots of every subject when you are first learning how to use it... and attach voice notes of your settings to every shot.

Tele & Wide add on lens's are some what expensive so be sure to shop around.

Wall mart had the best price's on 256meg XDcards to date. The a/c power used for the S602 will also work on the S5000.

Use 2000 mAh NiMH rechargeable batteries to get at least 6 hours of shooting time per set. I have 3 sets.
Best price was found at Harbor Freight Tools. $5.79 for 4 in a pack.

If I had to purchase a Fuji camera all over again I would have bought the S7000. I want to get more serious about my photo work and the S5000 has some limitations.

But with a little practice and lots of studying this digicam can produce prize winning results.

I you would like to share your comments about your S5000 or knowledge, email me at weldwire@charter.net

Great camera! Jpg files are a bit over compressed however. Still learning all the features it has at this time... I'll update my comments when I have more to say.

I wanted to purchase a camera with shutter and aperture control. This model has many shutter speeds. It's easy to use and seems sturdy. This camera is fairly new to me, but I would reccomend it.
