Very nice intro to SLR type camera. loaded with every poss extra needed for a good quality photo. Easy to use, light, good zoom, mad macro (will focus on lines of a star filter..when fitted ...) Picked mine up for £50 Good zoom range (10x) Good shutter range (Down to 4sec) make for nice S-FX shots.. Problems: Bad Purple fringing (can photoshop out) Poor in low light using auto settings A pain to use manual focus

This is not point&shoot camera. This one is good for brginner to study the art of photography. PASM modes are very good. In AUTO the camera is busting ISO settings - as a result the pictures are awful. But if you are using manual control - you can recieve excellent results, especialy in outdoor shooting. This camera is an example of long-zoomed one without wide angle, so it's a little bit lousy use it for landscape picture. The lenses are the weak point of the camera. Distorsions and purple ...

It's a good camera for people who wants more flexibility than a pocket camera. It's the perfect choice for someone who wants to really learn something about photography but doesn't want to spend the money. I bought this camera more than a year ago and I find that this Fuji has a lot of features found in SLRs. Myself I use a lot the shutter & the aperture priority. The bracketing is very useful too. Sometimes the pictures get overexposed and with the bracketing function you have a second ...

Outstanding. Great camera even in 2009. I purchased this for $90 at Wal Mart this past week after doing research on a decent mini dSLR type camera. I have always used Fuji products. My criteria were : #1 Camera using AA batteries efficiently. #2 Camera with all ISO , good aperture / shutter functions #3 Camera with over 10x optical zoom #4 Camera with also a viewfinder (to save on power). Camera exceeds my expectations for that price! Yes. A Canon Powershot has all this and probably has ...

I had a sony DSC-V3 (7 Mpixels/5x zoom) and the fact that this Fuji has twice as much zoom tempted me and I purchased it. And it seemed good value for money. But after a couple of weeks of using it I realized that the pictures quality is much worse than my Sony. There is a lot of noise in pictures even at ISO 64. The auto mode takes very poor pictures. The good thing about this camera is that the control for the manual is straightforward and user friendly in my view. Problems: No particular ...

2852 pictures later I still like this camera, and although I have recently upgraded to a panasonic fz18, the fuji s5700 has served exactly the purpose I wanted it to. It was a replacement for a kodak point and shoot, and I wanted a camera I could learn more about photography with, and a high zoom. This fuji is perfect for that purpose without breaking the bank. I would recommend this camera to anyone wanting more than a simple point and shoot (although it is still fine for that purpose) and ...

Overall I am very impressed, especially for what I paid for the camera. Does everything a budding photographer could want. Full manual controls, good zoom, comfortable to use, great image quality. Not sure what else I could ask for without paying double or triple. Pros: - Can be found for under US$160 - 10x zoom - manual controls - Zoom control on front of camera near shutter button makes for easy one handed use. - Nice EVF - Outstanding battery life using NIMH rechargeables. I went 4 ...

Bought this camera new for £100, (Amazon) which is almost free...bearing in mind what it can do. It plays second fiddle to my Olympus E410. Eight times out of ten, if I want to take a camera out, I'll grab the Fuji. It's cute, well built & packs a real punch. Sure it's not perfect, but the resolution is more than adequate for A4/A3 prints (don't get fooled by the pixel race) & a little tweaking with photo-shop gets rid of any distortion issues at 38mm. Stick to 64/100 ISO & it will give you ...

on second thought, fujis cheap beginner camera with better zoom lens was allot better then I originally thought I was disappointed allot at first then I realized the custom controls were just complex to use but its like a small dslr without the better chip. You can get some fantastic shots you can't get with small camera.. . Lack of easy custom controls killed this image quality was very variable too light or dark but at least its possible to get a great shot. pretty accurate white balance ...

Bought this at a sale price 6 months ago. Excellent features -auto and manual for the price. Compact with excellent firm hand grip. Fully enclosed non extending 10x zoom - love it. Can use 46 mm filters. Can use optical zoom in movie mode. A real bonus Really good 2.5" LCD and (small tho') EVF 230,000 pixels with fast refresh rate 60fps. 'Antishake' only raises the ISO but works well in good light. Reasonably low noise for a small 1/2.5" CCD up to ISO 800. Histogram on manual record modes and ...
