Fuji S3 Pro dpreview test, please!?
Jan 18, 2005

Hi guys,

First of all to state that DPreview is the best produced site in the world.

Now to what I came to comment:

I'm one of the first owners of the new Fuji S3 Pro, bought in Japan last December.

I'm still getting used to it. The first impressions are somewhat mixed.

Pro:

Excellent handling, low noise at high ISO, accurate colour rendition, very high definition at 12,3 mpix (I know it is interpolated but it works...), very good dynamic range, battery life better than expected (about 350 pics from a full charge of regular 2100 Ni Mh batteries, using external flash).

Con:

Slow CF write speed (a lot of processing), autofocus sometimes iffy in low light, slow continuous shooting (although for my needs it is OK - I dont shoot action), auto white balance tricky under artificial light.

The real question is:

WHEN IS DP REVIEW PUBLISHING THE FULL TEST? THE CAMERA IS ALREADY OUT FOR SOME TIME NOW, AND I'D LOVE TO HAVE A POST PURCHASE CRITICAL VIEW. Many of you guys could endorse this request even before buying - WHICH IS MUCH BETTER...

Regards,

Miguel
