  • Best Camera I Have Ever Owned

    By Yahoo! Shopping User  Jul 4, 2007

    I would recommend this camera to anyone who is looking for a quality camera that is not complicated. I have managed to get professional quality photos with this camera and have even had the most unbelievable night shots with this camera.

  • Great Camera

    By Gary C  Mar 4, 2007

    ### Recently purchased the FinePix S5200 and immediately put it through its paces. If you can read, you can use this camera right out of the box. Takes amazing pictures on auto everything; and with a little more studying of the manual, you can really g...et into the whole photo experience. I downloaded pics of my kids for starters and it was so easy to do after the software installation (easy) that I found myself taking pictures of everything, just to experiment. I'm planning a trip out west this summer, and wanted a camera to take pics of wildlife from a distance. The 10X zoom will do that and more. I'm thrilled with this camera: looks like an SLR only light as a feather. The viewfinder is small by comparison, but you can toggle between an LCD and optical viewfinder, so not a problem. Try it...you'll love it! Read more Less

  • A Great Camera

    This Camera takes great pictures. You need to keep extra batteries with you. Good quality rechargables work best.

  • What a Great Camera for the $$$

    By The Other 1  Feb 16, 2007

    ### This is a Great Camera for the Money. Everywhere I go People think it's a Digital SLR because we use extension lenses and a Glare Hood. It even takes shots comparable to a D-SLR. Except for the Cost of the xD cards(which you can get on sale if yo...u shop), this is the best camera i have ever used in the "under 500 dollar" range. Good flash for an Internal. Fast Transfer time to Computer. Comfortable handgrip. Read more Less

    S5200 is a great camera. The zoom is amazing, there is no blur images in hight zoom telephoto shots. By the way, batteries dont last quite as long T_T. Anyway, very good camera ^^

  • Great shots

    By xu  Sep 17, 2006

    ### I have been using cameras ranging from APS (yesterday's tech, SLRs (film)and 2 previous canon digital cameras. I bought this camera after reading reviews of film-lab technicians complimenting the colour accuracy of this camera. Pros: 1: Sure en...ough, the colour outcome of my shots were stunningly accurate. They did not exhibit the typical red bias most consumer camers have. 2: The grip and balance of the camera was great, reminding me of my SLR. 3: The battery life on the supplied alkali batteries stunned me. I could have gone on a 2 day trip without any spare batteries. 4: I liked the flexibility of having the higher ISOs without exhibiting objectionable noise (800 was ok). Fuji did a seriously good job with such a small CCD. 5: The Fujion lense is very sharp though there is a little purple fringing. 6: The zoom is more than I would ever need and its good for shots of animals (in trees etc). 7: Exposure button reminds me of my SLR. 8: The 55mm lense thread enable me to attach my UV and polarizing filter without awkward attachments. This allows me to be more creative in my shots. 9: Shutter lag is good if prefocused so no complaints there. Cons: 1: Chunky (but that aids in handling), Zoom is not operated on lense barrel (the S6000fd has this feature but is weighs 2x as much), 2: manual focus function is hopeless both LCD and EVF do not have the required resolution and unlike some cameras, the middle is not magnified to check on focus. 3: I would imagine taking shots in small areas would be a challenge(the lense is slightly biased to telephoto (38mm for 35mm film equiv). Overall, I would highly recommend this product for this price range as long as size is not a main consideration for you. Read more Less

  • I love my camera

    By Mike & Jenny  Jul 29, 2006

    ### I love my camera. It takes great pics, it is really fast, it has settings for advanced users or beginners like me. The image stabilizer is great.

  • Great camera

    By N  Jul 30, 2008

    ### I go to alot of car races and wanted some good pics from very far away in the stands and this camera is great for that, the cars all come out clear even going 200+mph and I can get them even when they are at the other side of the track with the 10x z...oom. I really like this camera alot and it was well worth it. Read more Less

  • I love this camera!

    By Patty  Jun 16, 2007

    ### I have been using this camera since Dec. 2006 and I take most of my photos in low-light since I take photos of bands at a local dancehall as their house photographer. I found using the neck strap enhances my ability to stablize the camera without a t...ri-pod since I am "on the run" taking most of the shots. I do wish I could zoom while in video mode, but you have to set the zoom before starting the video. I researched several cameras before purchasing this one and it is my 3rd Fuji digital camera. Overall, I believe this camera easier to use than the other two that were rated higher by consumer reports. Read more Less

  • Great camera for a great price

    By GW  Dec 23, 2006

    ### I love this camera. This is my third digital camera and is a super camera for the price. It is very easy to use in Auto Mode and the more you read and understand the owner's manual, the more features you can employ. It takes great pictures and has lo...ts of cool options. The 16MB XD memory card has a very limited capacity but with the 128MB card I use I can get over a hundred pictures before the card is full. Uploading is easy and straightforward. I like the different resolution options and especially like the 3:2 aspect ratio option which is the same as a 35mm film camera. Zoom and macro are great. Takes great night shots if on a tripod and the two second or ten second auto timer eliminates any camera shake from pressing the shutter release. I really like the 55mm threaded ring on the end of the lens for effect, protection, wide angle, or close up filters. I use rechargeable AA batteries and am amazed at how long they last in this camera. This camera lives up to the advertising. I wholeheartedly recommend this camera to anyone who wants more than a shirt pocket camera and less than a professional DSLR. The biggest problem I find when talking to others with this camera is that you need to read the owner's manual. All the answers are there, you just have to read it and practice. It has so many features that I have read it two or three times and I still don't know how to use all the features without consulting the manual. It's a great camera for the money. Read more Less
