Liz, Uxbridge

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Solid build, easy menus once you get the hang of them. The in-built help menus are clear and comprehensive. In the main ergonomic button positions and easy to change with your eye still at the eye piece. Fast reviewing especially with the face finder to check exposure and focus quickly before the crowd gets bored. Fast start up, from review to re-take at the touch of a button.
Bad points:
A bigger step up from a compact digital camera than expected for the Fuji range, which is actually no bad thing.

Manufacturer's Description

The FinePix S5 Pro will stand apart from the crowd by combining the much sought-after picture quality of Fujifilm’s Super CCD SR sensor with a fully digital and durable professional metal alloy body. With this superior combination of truly professional handling and image quality, the FinePix S5 Pro will appeal to a broad range of professional photographers looking for something more in their D-SLR.

Fujifilm is delighted to announce that its acclaimed FinePix S5 Pro digital SLR has been named ‘European Advanced Camera of the Year 2007-2008’ at this year’s prestigious European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) awards.

EISA explained the camera’s success with the following commendations: “The special qualities of Fujifilm’s Super CCD SR Pro sensor provide the wide dynamic range, low image noise and contrast control that make the camera stand out from the general DSLR market. Fujifilm has used a rugged body, faster processing, more flexible shooting methods, improved autofocus and advanced flash metering modes. Ultimately, though, it is the S5 Pro’s ability to reproduce a massive range of tones that makes it the winner of this category.”

  • High-end D-SLR:ideal for portraiture
  • Robust, magnesium-alloy body
  • New sensor design to raise the quality bar
  • Five film simulation modes
  • Face detection for exposure and focus check
  • Dual noise reduction: clean, sharp images at 3200 ISO
