Fujifilm FinePix S5200 – Review @ Steve’sDigicams

Steve’s Digicam has recently posted the review of Fujifilm FinePix S5200, a 5.0 megapixel Super CCD digital camera with a 10x optical zoom lens (38-380mm equivalent) featuring an “anti-blur” mode, 1.8″ LCD screen, Pictbridge, and RAW mode.


“The S5200’s shooting performance is very good. From power-on till the first image was captured measured under just 2 seconds. Shutter lag, the delay between depressing the shutter and capturing the image, was almost instantaneous (less than 1/10 of a second) when pre-focused, and only 4/10 of a second including autofocus time. Shot to shot delay averaged about 1 second without flash, and between 2.5 and 5 seconds with flash, depending on subject distance and battery life. Things slow down quite a bit when shooting CCD-RAW images; Continuous shooting is disabled, and shot to shot time slows to between 5 and 6 seconds. RAW mode is not well supported by Fuji’s FinePix Viewer; all you can do is convert the RAW file to TIFF and save it. But, I think that most users will be very satisfied with the image produced by its 5-megapixel Fine JPEG mode.”
