Fujifilm FinePix S5000 Review

Review Date: Oct 17, 2003

Fujifilm FinePix S5000

Photoxels Awards

Category: Beginner to Serious Amateur

With the FinePix S5000, Fujifilm enters the increasingly popular long zoom market with a 10x optical zoom, low-light focus-assist lamp, and Fujifilm's new 4th Generation Super CCD HR with 3.1 megapixels resolution.

The S5000 has a maximum aperture of F2.8, shutter speeds from 2- 1/2,000 sec., and, unlike some of its competitors, allows flexible exposure control with Shutter-Priority AE, Aperture-Priority AE, Scene Modes and Manual mode. It has a 1.5 in. LCD and uses 4 AA batteries.

The FinePix S5000 is probably one of the best looking digital camera in a while; it's not compact but should appeal to those who prefer a larger camera with a good grip. The S5000 should prove very popular to beginner and serious amateur photographers desiring a long zoom with flexible exposure control.
