Skin color anbitable!! Problems: slow in raw!! But after all the picture is that cound..

Have been using the S3 for approx 12 months, taking around 2000-3000 pictures a week. Although the camera has limitations, the quality on JPEG is excellent. RAW suffers a little but JPEGs are really good. I have not idea about the shutter life expectancy but so far seems to be going fine around the 91,000 clicks. As far as I can tell the S3 produces better results in "product" photos than my Nikon D200. The D2Xs is definately better but not by that far...and if you consider the price ...

Having worked extensively with Fuji digital gear since the MX700 in 1999/2000 I eventually got myself an S3 Pro (after a 602 then S2). The camera is fantastic at taking shots, the colours are amazing, esp with a poloriser attached and it works well with all the Nikon glass Ive used on it plus the SB800 flash. The only downside is the speed. Every way you look at it, its for low speed stuff. The buffer is tiny, the file sizes are huge and saving to CF is a joke. However when you know the ...

Had this camera for well over a year and a half, my previous camera was the S2 pro. I use it every week and so far its not broken (touch wood). I mainly use it for architectual work and night club photography. With Night Club photography, the S3 is amazing, picks up brilliant vivid colours if used in the simulation mode #2. I use all the ISO's and can't really fault them, the noise reduction is V good. its verticle shutter (one of the main reasons I bought this) also helps as your not ...

Had the S3Pro for a while but sold it as it did not meet my expectations and I need my cameras for professional work. This camera is regarded by some as an ideal camera for the wedding and portrait pro (which is me to the letter) but there was no match as far as I'm concerned. Problems: The AWB (as well as presets) almost drove me up the wall. Its quite unbelieveable Fuji didn't address this.

After getting fed up with the Nikon D50 and the fact that the colours and image look didn't quite do it for me, I migrated towards the Nikon F80 and used it with the best film available: Fujifilm. I thought I would do better to scan my films and spend the extra cash than going back to the 'digital' look. After serious thought and careful consideration of every alternative, I went for the S3 Pro as the price was just right for such a special camera. I could have gone for the D80 for the same ...

I just bought this camera after a lot of waiting for the right price. All I can say is, if image quality is your thing this is the camera for you. Even though not terribly fast, this camera is not as slow as the reviews make you believe not only that, in fact the seasoned photographer who is not frantically trigger happy will find it's performance with a good fast CF card, very usable. The only thing is, having a Minolta 7D and handling this one, construction wise feels a bit less solid. The ...
