Fuji S2 pro
Jun 2, 2012

I am a bit short on cash right now and my last camera died so I have been using an old S2 Pro a friend borrowed me for the last few months and really hating it, especially focus and color issues. I dug into the archives here and after a couple weeks of note taking and testing I am really getting this old bird to perform.

Thanks to everyone that contributes to these forums.
They really do make a difference.

It's still a great camera, glad you're having fun with it. We'd love to see some of the pics you're taking with it.

Regards,

Mark

Yeah, I was just looking at S2 photos I took yesterday and was surprised just how well they continue to hold up...

I was actually ready to move on and then I did a search on 500px for 'fuji s2 pro' and had a chance to see what the camera was really capable of. Those images inspired me to start digging through the archives here at DP. Right now I am experimenting to get my autofocus settings and technique down. Below is an example I took yesterday, very shallow depth of field and as you can see, I am still not quite there.
