The SLR-styled Fujifilm FinePix S5000 combines a powerful 10x optical zoom lens with a 3.1-megapixel Fujifilm Super CCD, which is capable of nearly doubling the number of effective pixels that are processed and stored. The S5000 also features a movie mode with audio, high sensitivity settings, continuous frame shooting, and a host of manual controls.

Optics and Resolution
The FinePix S5000 features a powerful f/2.8 Fujinon 6x aspherical zoom lens that's equivalent to 37-370mm in 35mm photography and a smooth 3.2x digital zoom. The S5000's Super CCD HR offers 3.1 effective megapixels (2048 x 1536 pixels), which can translate to 6.1 million recorded pixels (2,816 x 2,120 pixels). It also offers 2048 x 1536, 1600 x 1200, and 1280 x 960 resolution modes.

Effective pixels are the number of light sensitive pixels that are actually used by the camera's image sensor (the CCD) to record light. The term recorded pixels refers to the number of output pixels that are recorded to the memory card.

FujiFilm's Super CCD
The Super CCD is a proprietary version of the CCD (charged coupling device) system of light-gathering diodes that captures images into pixels. The Super CCD utilizes larger, octagonal-shaped, light-gathering diodes called Picture Elements (pixels) that are laid out in a saw-tooth pattern. Super CCDs can capture more light information than ordinary CCDs.

The FinePix S5000 features the fourth generation Super CCD HR (High Resolution), which is capable of nearly doubling the number of effective pixels that are processed and stored as additional detail in the recorded pixel file.

Movie Mode and Voice Memo Feature
The S5000 captures continuous QVGA-quality MPEG video with audio at a length only limited by the size of your memory card. You'll get 320 x 240 pixel video at 30 frames per second. With the included 16 MB XD memory card, you can capture 26 seconds of video.

The voice memo feature enables you to attach short audio recordings (up to 30 seconds) along with your captured photos to help you remember details. The voice memos are saved as WAV files and can be e-mailed along with image files.

More Features
The S5000 has an accurate, state-of-the-art, high-speed autofocus (AF) system that makes focusing quicker and more precise. The AF Assist illuminator ensures accurate focus on specific areas in low light conditions. The continuous autofocus feature automatically adjusts focus as the camera moves. The continuous shooting mode enables you to capture 5 frames per second at 6 MP (megapixel) mode, or up to 40 frames at 1 MP mode.

Other features include:

  • 1.5-inch LCD monitor and .33-inch electronic viewfinder
  • Built-in flash with auto, red-eye reduction, forced flash, suppressed flash, and slow synchro modes
  • Shutter speed: 2 seconds to 1/2000 second
  • Still image formats: JPEG and CCD RAW
  • Exposure modes include automatic, manual, aperture priority, exposure compensation, program AE, and shutter priority auto mode.
Storage and Transfer
Images are stored on XD memory cards, and a 16 MB card is included. When shooting images at 6 MP, the 16 MB card will store approximately 10 images; at 3MP, you can store approximately 19 images. Images can be downloaded to either a Mac or PC via USB 1.1, which means it can be connected to any USB-based Windows Me/2000/XP and Mac OS 8.6 or later computer without installing any software.

Power and Size
The camera is powered by 4 AA batteries; alkaline batteries are included, but rechargeable NiMH batteries are recommended. It measures 4.4 by 3.2 by 3.1 inches and weighs 11.9 ounces (excluding batteries and media).

What's In The Box
This package includes the FinePix S5000 digital camera, 16 MB XD memory card, 4 AA alkaline batteries, USB and A/V cables, shoulder strap, and lens adapter ring. The included CD-ROM features FinePix View 4 imaging software, Image Mixer VCD for FinePix, QuickTime 5, and USB drivers for Windows and Mac.

My dear husband, (a pro photographer) clued me into this camera before it was even shipped from Fuji factory. It compares to the top of the line Nikon Coolpix and Olympus high end digicams costing $800-1,000. But it outshoots all its competitors even though the others cost a lot more $$. I have been shooting this camera for only 3 days now (it was just released for sale last week) and I love it. My husband loves it and is thinking of buying one for himself even though he owns 3 digital SLR cameras and numerous 35mm Nikons. The photos from the S5000 look fantastic even at the 1mb and 3mb sizes. The lens is really sharp and the 10X zoom allows one to compose just about any photo one can envision. The camera fits nicely in the hand, buttons are intuitive and easy to reach, and one can shoot pics one-handed. It is a much smaller camera than it appears from photos, it is shorter than my cricket lighter!
It has a short lag time between pressing the shutter and making the image, as ALL digicams do, but I get around that by using the "best of 5" mode...it can blaze off 5 pics in one second, capturing precious fleeting expressions of my 3 month old son that other cameras would miss. White balance is terrific, skin tones look very realistic to life, metering is right on with what a pro photog would select. You won't regret owning this truly awesome camera. I'm loving it so much I'm ordering a second xd card to take even more pics.
Just buy it!!!

I've had this camera for about a month and have had nothing but fantastic photos to show for it. I am merely a photography novice, but the photo quality, features and zoom can hardly be beat for the value of the product.
The Good: Good picture quality, top-notch optical zoom, easy-to-hold body design, low battery drain when using high quality NiMH batteries, tube adapter and lensecap included.
The "eh"s: Slight purple glow under certain lighting conditions, TTL EVF will take a little getting use to, included software is usable, but nothing comparable to IrfanView and Windows XPs built in image handling.
The Bad: Included memory card is woefully small, included batteries will last about half of a blink of an eye.

I purchased this camera as an upgrade from my Fuji 3800 and while that was a good camera, the s5000 is a great camera. This camera is truly about the zoom, all 10x of it! I can easily zoom in on the blue jays in my neighbors trees and when looking at the photo you would think I was right next to them instead of in the next yard over. I have heard complaints that photos others have taken with the zoom fully extended have turned out very blurry. I have never experienced any blurriness with this zoom lens at all. The zoom on this camera is amazing! Another plus about the s5000 is the styling, it has the look and feel of a traditional SLR which helps traditional 35mm camera users feel comfortable using this camera. Also the setup is extremely easy. I had the camera out of the box and operating within 5 minutes the day it arrived. Even though this camera has many advanced features such as manual focus, white balance and ISO controls the beginning user won't have any problem operating it, the camera is fairly self-explanatory in that sense. One nice feature is the camera's AF illuminator which makes taking indoor shots without the flash very simple and they are usually in focus. Another great feature is the cameras ability to operate in three color modes: Black and white (which turns out awesome pics), standard color (usually looks exactly like the real thing), and chrome mode (which simulates slide film and makes the photo much more rich in color).
This camera is almost a 5 star, but I just couldn't rate it a 5 star because of a couple problems. Most of the time when I am taking pictures against a brightly lit background (whether artificial or a bright sky) there is a noticable purple fringing on the photos.

Strengths:
price! Functionality! High ISO 800 (although at 1M);takes filters;movies smoothness
Weaknesses:
auto focus and shutter lag are better than average, but still too slow for spontaneity; cumbercum to navigate the menu; manual focus extremely difficult to use;poor build quality;no true wide angel
Summary:

You can't beat the price-functionality ratio of this thing. ... High ISO comes in handy for indoor photography. You can even take B&W pictures.Pictures quality is good enough. Overall I strongly recommend it. But you read reviews to find out the less than perfect aspects so here we go: 1)build quality--lense barrel is loose, we exchanged the 1st one and the 2nd one was even worse, but it doesn't seem to affect picture quality;2)manual focus too difficult to use,auto focus' generally fast enough but takes some hunting sometimes 3)camera makes an unpleasant high-pitched sound 4)no true wide angel (only 37mm), but that seems like the industry norm 5)shutter lag is quite good but still too slow for taking spontaneous pictures of little kids playing (true for all digital cameras in this price range though).5)ISO800 only available at 1M;6) longest exposure time is only 2 sec.
Some tips: 1) use the chrome color setting to get better saturation 2) combine tele and manual focus, if you want to fill frame with your subject, e.g. your kid's face 3)get a UV filter and lens cap put on to protect lens; 4) or put on a polarizer filter to get richer colors ( a must have for seiour scenary phtography); 5) for in-door pictures, better to forgo the automatic settings and use the "P"(programable) or "A" (aperture priority) to set ISO to 400(800 only at 1M) to ensure maximun shutter speed to avoid shaking,"slow-syc" flash mode helps with low light conditions too.
