Fujifilm FinePix S5100 Zoom / Fujifilm FinePix S5500 review

I have been using this camera for last two months. The picture quality is very good. Macro mode is just awesome. Manual control of the flash is too good to control the feature, compared to automatic. The usual AA battries is another thing to notice compared to the special battires that comes with the camera, when running out of battery you can just be on with a energizer or duracell battries.

Problems:

1.XD card is very costly compared to other memory cards!
2.Manual focus is a joke. Cant focus objects that are very close even with good lighting.
3.Auto Focus errors occur quite often in low lights, but with few attempt you do get it focused.
4.Limited features compared to s1 is.
