Product Description

Fujifilm Finepix S5200 5.1MP Digital Camera with 10x Optical Zoom

From the Manufacturer

Digital photographers interested in taking their first foray into SLR-styled cameras should pay special attention to the FinePix S5200. Equipped with 5.1 megapixels of resolution, a 10x optical zoom, and technology that suppresses camera shake and blur caused by subject movement, the FinePix S5200 offers an excellent entry point into the world of feature-rich cameras without losing its operational simplicity.

Highlight features of the FinePix 5200 include:

Real Photo Technology
Real Photo Technology captures treasured moments just as your eye sees them. Combining the Fujifilm's new RP Processor, 5th Generation Super CCD HR sensor and Fujinon Lens Optics, the S5200 delivers ultra-high sensitivity (ISO 1600), faster operational speeds (start-up in 1.1 seconds; shutter lag at a mere 0.01 second) and reduced power consumption. This will allow the shooter to get just about every shot, capturing priceless memories as photographs with every nuance of light and color, even in low-light situations without a flash using the camera's special "Natural Light" and "Anti-Blur" modes.

Fujinon Lens Technology & Zooming
The superb optics of the Fujinon lens collects light and precisely forms the image in conjunction with a 5th Generation Super CCD HR. Users can bring the subject closer to them using the camera's 10.0x optical zoom (equivalent to a 38-380mm on a 35mm camera). In Macro mode, the FinePix S5200 can focus clearly at 3.9 inches. With the addition of beam assist, the FinePix S5200 can focus up to 7.9 feet, even in low light conditions.

The FinePix S5200 offers an optional wide-angle lens adapter, which increases the performance of this model for any user. (Not included--must be purchased separately.)

I have been using the Fuji S5200 for several days now and think that it is a fantastic camera. I had been debating between this and several other superzooms. I chose the Fuji for its ISO capabilities and its real photo technology.


-Great looks and build. You know this camera has quality written all over it from the moment you pick it up.

-Fast shot to shot times.

-Good auto focus capability, though not the best in its class.

-Good movie mode with 640 X 480 capability.

-Incredible High ISO capability! This is where the Fuji stands heads and above its competitors. You can actually use come pcitures at 1600 ISO with a little work.

-Excellent pictures in auto mode for a beginner. This is a great camera for someone wanting to learn how to use digital cameras. You can start off in auto mode and experiment with many manual settings.


-Manual focusing is awkward to use. You have to hold on to 1 button and then move the zoom in or out to focus.

-The menus are a little more difficult to use than others I have tried, though you get used to it like anything else with practice.

-No optical stabilization. This is not really a con in my book due to its high ISO capabilities but some would argue the point.

-No hot shoe.

In the end, Fuji has taken and enhanced the S5100 in several ways to create a bargain of a camera the 399.00 price. Highly recommended!

This camera is relatively new, so there are not many reviews in cyberspace yet. However, some diligent searching will reveal a few. They generally fall into the "unbelievably good" category, but when you read the details you find the user has had the camera for only a few days, or it is their first camera. There are a few quite negative reviews, including some posted images of poor quality.

I have had mine for a few weeks, and have mixed feelings about it. Yes, it does have all the features that others have listed, and it offers very good value for money. However, you need to understand what it is doing if you are going to take good pictures. If you just "point and shoot", you may be disappointed.

The S-5600 has a very long zoom, but no image stabilisation. Unless you use a tripod, you may find it hard to get sharp pics at the extended settings. The "anti-blur" setting works well, but at the expense of sometimes undesirable ISO levels. IS would be better.

Also, you need to be careful about focusing. The autofocus sometimes misses small subjects. You need to diligently use the "pre-focus" half-shutter option to make sure your subject is in focus before completing the shot.

Focusing would be less of an issue if manual focus was easier. I would prefer a simple focus ring, like on an SLR. Failing that, it would be better if you could hold down a button with your left hand rather than trying to hold it down with your right hand while also operating the zoom buttons to manually focus. Also, manual focus is very slow - you might not think it is working sometimes. Plan to learn how to use manual focus, and practice using your right hand - not so difficult once you have it down, but again not "point and click".

Well,@I am not a pro but I will try to write something about this camera for those who are trying to decide if they will buy it or not...

I bought this camera after analysing the reviews of S5200's antecesors; S5000 and S5100.

Both were top sellers and every one (or almost) liked their performance. I also analysed if it was better to buy the strong competitor Canon S1 IS. For my need I chose to buy one of the Fujis.

After reading some reviews about the S5000, some complaining and seeing that the complaining was much less on the Fuji S5100, I decided that the latter would be a great idea had not I done more research. I saw that the few complainings on S5100 would not (probably) be in its up-graded version (S5200) and some nice features would be included, too.

In the site of Fuji I saw that S5200 would come with their newest kinda sensor (5th generation). Also it would come with Anti-blur (comparable to Canon's Image Stabilizer) and with the Real Photo Tecnology.

Despite having it only for one week now, I have to say that I am very satisfied with the camera. It was a bit expensive but worth every Yen (I am in Japan, the first place where it had its premiere). I took some shots at night with surprising results, such as those Fuji promissed in their homepage. The Real Photo Tec is really good; instead of a dark and impenetrable background in night shots, you can have a vision of how the party was like. If you know how to use the camera, you can even get many details that I doubt you would ever get with another camera but S5200.

The Anti-blur works fine. It is pretty good to take telephoto shots without a tripod and even for moving objects.

The ISO have a reduced amount of noise even in its highest; ISO 1600. Unbelievable!

I spent the weekend playing with my camera's features...doing my best to try them all..and taking over a hundred pictures in the process. Here are my results in no particular order:

SUMMARY: What a camera for the price!! At just over $200, it does more than I'll ever need it to. And it's half the price I paid for my 4M Olympus Camedia C4000Z 3 years ago. I'm still getting used to which functions are available with buttons and which are in the menu. GREAT CAMERA that does almost everything you can with an SLR (except change lenses, which is a hassle I'd rather avoid). HIGHLY RECCOMMEND


1. BATTERY LIFE: good to average

2. FOCUS: Fast to focus, except at the outer edges of zoom in low light.

3. ULTIMATE CONTROL: You can have as little or as much control over the image captured as you want. I took one (very dark) night shot of wet leaves lit by my porch light with a 15 second shutter speed. Of course, you can also intentionally take out of focus shots.

4. HIGH ISO AVAILABLE: Good to have available when you need it. Took one night shot of the cityscape at ISO 800 and got a good 4" x 6".

5. CONTINUOUS MODE: Comes in 4 varieties to help you get the shot when your own timing isn't so good. First 3 shots, last 3 shots, one I can't remember, and Long-period (shoots up to 40 consecutive shots). Long-period would seem to be an easy way to build a panorama photo series.

6. RAW: Shoot in this format is good to have when you don't want pixels lost to compression. All editing must be done post-conversion. You can then edit the TIFF and re-save it either as a JPEG or TIFF.

7. MANUAL FOCUS: In Manual mode you can change anything. I even intentionally took a picture out of focus just to prove I could.
