Camera Base / Tripod Mount

The bottom of the S5 Pro is a simple enough affair with the metal tripod mount located in line with the center of the lens and the imaging focal plane. We're also big fans of the large rubber foot which covers two thirds of the base - this makes tripod use a lot more secure.

Pop-Up Flash

The S5 Pro's pop-up flash is released by pressing a small button on the left side just below the flash. The long arm raises the flash unit a respectable 53 mm (2.1 in) above the top of the lens (useful for lens hoods and reducing red-eye). Just below the release button is another button which changes flash mode and flash exposure compensation control button. Hold the button and turn the main command dial (rear) to change flash mode or the sub-command dial to change flash exposure compensation (-3.0 to +1.0 EV).

Flash Hot-shoe

The S5 Pro has a standard (ISO 518) accessory shoe which is compatible with third party flash systems for flash sync and more advanced i-TTL with the Nikon SB-800, SB-600 or SB-R200. Non-TTL Auto available with the 80DX, 28DX, 28, 27, and 22s.

Lens Mount / Sensor

Below on the left you can see the S5 Pro's lens mount with the mirror down, on the right with mirror up and shutter open (exposing the sensor). Lenses are inserted twisted clockwise and lock in place with an anticlockwise turn. This is a standard Nikon F lens mount and can use almost the complete range of Nikkor F lenses (although some features are only available with newer type G or type D lenses). As noted in our introduction the S5 Pro also supports the aperture ring found on old AI lenses, which means the S5 Pro is compatible with a far, far broader range of lenses than any previous FinePix SLR, though of course you'll get fairly limited features if you're using 30 year old manual focus optics.
