The good: * DR (SR sensor similar to S3Pro, best DR for non-DSLR) * RAW format * external flash * fast continuous shooting (4.5 fps) * very good image quality, beautiful colors (so Fuji like) * takes CF & XD mem cards (although not explicitely specified in manual) * low noise (even today 2008 & 4 years after release for non-DSLR camera comparing to say A610, F10, F100 in par or better IMHO) * very good micro (2 steps) * good movie mode * works great with Fuji camera control studio S/W (HU) Pr ...

My father borrowed it from a friend to shoot holiday pictures. I was impressed with the results, so I bought the same used. (It was a great deal.) The camera has excellent dynamic range and great low-light performance. Shooting low light pictures you have to practice a bit (use higher ISO sensitivity), or use a tripod. My holiday pictures are sharp, not a single focus error. Pros: Excellent dynamic range, ergonomics and build quality, lots of manual controls (F/11 aperture), RAW mode, good ...

Finepix S20 is just an incredible nice camera. Wouldn´t change it for any other camera. Bought it second-hand from a UK camerastore, live myself in Denmark. It seems that this model is being a "collectors item", it´s rare and cost a lot used, specially at the German market. I´ve bought the S602 when it arrived in 2002, it have been a very nice camera for me. Only few things to complain about; but when you get the S20 in your hands and using it, you will be astonised about it. It must be the ...

I've just acquired this camera after using an S5000 for a few years. The S20 pro is a better camera, with good optics, and a comprehensive range of features. Image quality is fine, and when enhanced by the wide angle and zoom lens attachments, this camera has a lot to offer. I've read some criticisms that the switches can turn themselves on or off in your camera bag. I've never had this problem and would put it down to clumsy handling-you can't manhandle a digital like it's some old ...

* high quality images with larger DR compared to other digital cameras * good lens * easy to hold and to carry around * high quality movies Problems: * often impossible to focus in low light / low contrast situation * resolution of 3MP is not adequate for todays standard * you need to shoot in RAW mode to get maximum detail and DR * slow start up

I bought the S20 because of the high dynamic range, but you have to use RAW format to achieve this high dynamic range. Besides that I think that dynamic range is very very important and despite the "RAW" necessarity the S20-Pro has better dynamic range than ALL DSLRs except the S3! And I discovered that the S20 has very good low light abilities and delivers perfekt skin colors for portraiture, so this is my low light outdoor portraiture camera. Fuji is often a company where you see a lot of ...

Great camera, I am very pleased with it. I bought it 2 weeks ago for a nice price. I like its beautiful colours and its many features. It feels good in my hands and although I still need the users manual, I don't feel as if it were too complicated. One reason to buy it was its fine macro-function, which indeed does a great job. Problems: nothing really

i've had this camera for a couple of months now and find that i really appreciate the image quality and speed, compared with other fixed-lens cameras. 3mp has been just enough for images up to 16" wide (for art on textured paper, not professional output). the extra sensors really are what make enlargements happen with this camera, bringing the image quality to more like a 5mp camera. this will be a true digital collector's item. Problems: the price was still a little high when i bought it, ...
