  • The Best 3 Megapixel-Class Camera On The Market

    Feb 18, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Solid body feel, easy and smartly designed controls, great value for the money
    Cons: Weird shape tricky for buying camera bags, skimpy 16MB xD card ships with camera

    Summary: To set this review up properly, you need to understand a little of where I've been. My first digital camera ever was the Minolta Dimage V, a VGA-quality camera with a tilt-swivel lens head that succumbed to a single fall on the ground, and a Nikon ... read more

  • Shoot the Moon

    Feb 7, 2006 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use, great pictures, and lots of useful features
    Cons: Eats batteries, and LCD useless in sunlight situations

    Summary: I bought my Fuji s5000 right after Christmas 2004, and have played and played with it. It is very useful and fun for me, as a gadget person, and I do take it many places, but for those who are technically inept, it is a no go. But if you don't mind a ... read more

  • By far, the best digital camera I've used.

    Nov 24, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great zoom, remarkable resolution.
    Cons: Sometimes forgets to turn off.

    Summary: I've owned many digital cameras over the years. Everything from one of the first, which didn't even give a resolution or have a flash, (and cost a mortgage payment), to several Sony cameras, to this S5000. I am glad I bought this baby. Its 10X optical ... read more

  • Great digital for just about everyone

    Jan 7, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use,feature packed,quality pictures
    Cons: Not for really fast action. Eats Alkaline batteries

    Summary: I bought this camera on a salesman's recommendation. I was looking for a smaller camera but none of them seemed to have the right combinations of features for me. I was a little skeptical about this camera, ( I am truly a rookie at ... read more

  • Fantastic Digital Camera for Beginners or Serious Hobbyists

    Pros: Great zoom, ease of use, complex options, movie feature, price
    Cons: 16mb memory card, multi-shot mode works poorly.

    Summary: This is actually my 5th digital camera and I can not immagine how I got allong with all the regular point and shoot's up until now! This camera has a fantastic zoom (10x optical, 22x digital) a sufficient built in flash, Movie w/sound feature, and ... read more

    Pros: (1)Feels like a traditional SLR camera, (2)Features of more expensive cameras, (3)Can accommodate filters
    Cons: *None -- I love it!

    Summary: My wife and I have long wanted a digital camera but when we finally decided to purchase one, we realize that we have very different ideas of what is a good camera. My wife wanted a simple point and shoot that should could carry in her purse while I ... read more

  • Fujifilm FinePixS5000: Professional Camera for the Amateur

    Oct 28, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Lots of settings, ability to add filters attachments to lens, similar to expensive SLRs
    Cons: Takes time and practice to fully use camera

    Summary: Shopping online for a good digital camera, I was cued in on the Fujifilm FinePixS5000 when I mistakenly typed the wrong website for epinions and came to a site that compared digital cameras, with the Fujifilm FinePix S5000 as one of the top 3 on the ... read more

  • Yes it is a 6 MP camera.

    Oct 14, 2004 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Picture quality, options, looks, and feel.
    Cons: No cons.

    Summary: Not too many people know that this camera takes all pictures at 6 MP and then downsizes them to the users selection. Therefore yes it is a 6 MP camera. Although the quality of the 6 MP probably compares more to a 4.5 MP camera, but I have found it to ... read more

  • great for most everything

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: great versatility, photo download ease. Many options
    Cons: limiting shutter speed and ISO settings

    Summary: I am a police officer and I needed a digital for crime scenes. I take low light, bright light, moving pictures, you name it. I was told about this camera by a professional photographer as I needed a camera that had adjustable ISO setting's, aparature ... read more

    Sep 2, 2004 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great zooming capabilities
    Cons: Vignetting, picture quality not great, 3MP not a 6, startup time is atrocious

    Summary: I bought this camera after reading many reviews from people who love this model. When I first received it, I was pleased with the performance of the camera but the more I use it, the more I realize what it is lacking. The biggest plus of this model is ... read more

  • Great, GREAT camera, but...

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Zoom, features, great feel, QUALITY color, batt life, filter adapter.
    Cons: Shutter lag, no TTL metering.

    Summary: I've had the S5000 for about 3 months, but am returning it in favor of it's head to head competition, the Minolta Z1. I won't talk about the Z1 in this review, but rather focus on the pros and cons of the S5000. Firstly though I must say that I DO love ... read more

  • A high quality camera at a great price.

    Jun 27, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quality construction, 10X optical zoom, manual settings, outstanding picture quality and price.
    Cons: EVF (electronic view finder) is somewhat pixelated but not that big an issue.

    Summary: I’ve been an amateur photographer for approximately 25 years I even worked at Eastman Kodak for a while so I feel I know a little about photography. Up until about five years ago I mainly used SLR film cameras and did some of my own darkroom work but ... read more

  • The Fuji Finepix S5000 is an Outstanding Buy!

    Jun 16, 2004 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy use, durable, professional quality prints, easy use software, user-friendly and lots of fun!
    Cons: Memory card that comes with the camera is to small.

    Summary: Prior to purchasing the Fuji Finepix S5000 I was intimidated by the overwhelming choices of digital cameras on the market today. I've been using a plain point and shoot camera for years, so going digital was quite a leap for this armature. I knew that ... read more

  • Pleased with the purchase

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The 10X zoom is worth every penny.
    Cons: Flash Photos: there is a noticeable delay before it is ready for the next photo.

    Summary: I am no professional photographer, but have used the Kodak DX3600 digital camera for a couple of years. I have always wanted a better zoom than the 2x optical provided by the Kodak (I will ignore the digital zoom). I was intrigued by the 10X optical ... read more

  • I LOVE my Fuji S5000!

    Apr 29, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: ease of use, high quality imaging, wide range of zoom, GREAT ergonomics, Good price.
    Cons: Not a 6.0MP camera, don't like the strap.

    Summary: Had mine for about nine months, and I absolutely LOVE this camera. It's got more features than I need, I tend to do mostly quick shots for a small newsletter-type magazine, and for this it works great. I'll occasionally do web photography or eBay sales ... read more

  • Simple enough for the Amateur, complicated enough for the Pro

    Apr 11, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to handle/use, AA batteries, grunty flash, heaps of zoom, great pictures, looks impressive.
    Cons: Mode wheel, manual focus, zoom control badly placed for left eyed users.

    Summary: The S5000Z represents the best value for money in the digicam market today. Now that is a bold sweeping statement but it is true, I have owned this camera for one week and it has surprised me at every turn. An ergonomic delight, it just fits right into ... read more

  • Absolutely no complaints

    Mar 4, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Almost everything
    Cons: Mode wheel too loose, should be able to lock better

    Summary: A few weeks ago, I started looking at upgrading my Kodak DX3500 digital camera. First thing I did was the obvious - went to the store and looked at what looked cool. I became interested in the SLR style digital cameras, but was put off by the price. ... read more

  • For Those Expanding past Snapshot to Composition

    Mar 2, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Macro, Zoom, Battery Life, Pictures Look Excellent, Easy to understand.
    Cons: Low lighting throws this camera off. Poor software provided

    Summary: Like most people, and perhaps like you, I read so many reviews and specs on so many cameras that I was dizzy. I think what ended up being the biggest help was on dpreview.com and the message board comments on that webpage. Despite his "Average" grade ... read more

  • A-lot of bang for your buck!

    Feb 20, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: 10X Optical Zoom Ergonomics
    Cons: Too much JPEG Compression No way to turn off digital zoom

    Summary: I have been using the Fuji S5000 for about a week now and I really like it. This is my 4th digital camera and by far the best. The main reason for my purchase of this camera is that it offers manual control. One of the surprises on initially getting ... read more

  • Great little camera!

    Feb 18, 2004 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: xD is GREAT! Great picture quality. Lightweight. Easy to use. ZOOM!!
    Cons: Small LCD screen. Slow USB transfer - buy a reader! PC Software only OK.

    Summary: Sold my 35mm gear (EOS Elan) and bought this little beauty. Did lots of research and couldn't quite justify spending the extra bucks for the S7000 or the Nikon 5700, or Panasonic DMZ-Fz10. I'm no photography geek and I already own a Polaroid 2.3MP Point ... read more
