My third DSLR. It was my first non-Nikon DSLR, although it had Nikon F-mount, and mechanical portion was clearly Nikon F80, a film camera which went on to become the basis of Nikon's own D100 and Kodak's DCS Pro series. I purchased this camera as a supplement to D70, not as a replacement. Just purchased it because it was practically given away (or so I thought at that time). It was one of the early examples of DSLRs, so it was designed as a film camera with digital device added afterwards. Su ...

Despite having a Canon 5D and a 5D mkII, I still love to shoot with Fuji S2Pro. Image quality is excellent (especially at color level) and it's a machine that gives the impression of being shot in analog. It is an excellent choice for those who want to take the first steps in photography, even though they are at very low prices. It has a slow running and outdated but that's part of the charm. Batteries are not a problem if you use rechargeable batteries of 2700mAh or more, they allow more ...

my favorite camera for posters. very high quality in dynamic. Nikon Nai lenses can be used. 800 ISO similar to 100 ISO and 1600 ISO to 400 ISO of other brands in image quality. If contrast, color saruration and sharpness are fitted to high, superb results After shooting I sharpen once more with Photoshop and I am interpolating ti 48 MP. AA batteries

I sold this camera. Took a lot of really good pictures. But to often the batteries were empty.

OK so the S2 is a bit long in the tooth these days, is 6Mp really enough for your needs? Yes, I have owned one of these for a couple of years now and I can NOT fault the old beast. Image quality is still fantastic. The Fuji sensor is still the preferred weapon for many wedding and portrait photographers. Even though mine has been used hard by myself and it is now of considerable age it is still working very very well. There are comments on here about shortcomings, and yes there are some, ...

I owned one of these for a few months in 2009. I was originally going to write a blog post about the camera - it's a relic nowadays - but it simply isn't interesting enough. That's not to say that it's bad, it's just that it doesn't have a "hook". It's a generally quirk-free six megapixel SLR with a slightly old-fashioned air. As with the old Kodak DCS models it is essentially a Nikon film body with a digital module strapped to the back, although it is much more compact and lighter than the ...

When I decided to "go digital", I sold my various Nikon bodies (my beloved FE2, the F4 and my Nikkormat) and bought the S2Pro new which at that time was around $1000. I have been well pleased with the camera's performance. Although some people complain about noise above 400, I have shot (at times) at 1600 and the results are very, very good, better than I expected. I use Nikon and occasionally Tokina Professional lenses and find that the combinations produce excellent results. I shoot ...

This is an old camera now, with a feature set that harks back to the time it was released (2002 I believe). It's really slow. It's "only" 6MP. It's all plastic; not so much as a rubber pad anywhere near the grip area. And it uses a silly, outdated, 2- battery system that can, at times, be awkward. But ... oh my ... what pictures. Say what you will about the camera's body (which isn't at all poor; in fact, I like it a lot!) .... but if you can't get simply wonderful, film-like images out of ...

Having used a Nikon D1 and a D70 as well I will be comparing this camera to them in regards to my experience. I bought this camera used in November of 2007 as a backup. At first I was excited about the "Super CCD" but leary of its dubious claims and questioned the quality of the camera body. Being based on the Nikon N80/F80 The camera feels a bit plastically and hollow. BUT I find that it's still VERY comfortable to hold. More so than my D1. The camera is a little narrower than the D1 and a ...
