Fujifilm FinePix S5700 Reviews

Cameras.uk reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S5700 and writes;
“The Fuji Finepix S5700 has two big plus points for anyone looking for a digital camera with a longer lens. The first is its low price tag and the second is ease of use. Picture quality is not perfect, but taking the price of the camera into account I cannot be too critical. .. The Fuji Finepix S5700 is one of the cheaper super zoom digital cameras. Therefore it is understandable if picture quality wavers in places. It is one of the easier to use super zooms, despite the fact that the camera has manual exposure controls.”

Megapixel reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S5700 and writes;
“The Fujifilm FinePix S700/S5700 is a very good camera that easily produces excellent images. If its flash is no better than most compacts, its image quality outdoors is one of the best we have seen recently. This said, could the FinePix S700 be even better? Yes, it would be even better if it also offered an effective optical stabilizer. But even as is, this camera should garner a wide following.”

TrustedReviews reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S5700 and writes;
“The Fujifilm S5700 is an amazing bargain. It has style, good performance, manual exposure options, excellent low-light ability and fantastic handling, and tops it off with good image quality. That you can get a camera this good for under £130 is simply astonishing. If I could, I would give it 11 out of 10 for value. ”

“Movies are nice and sharp with minimal compression artifacts (even indoors), and I especially liked the ability to use it’s versatile 10x zoom lens while recording. The AF system does well with moving subjects, and re-focuses after zooming quickly…Bottom line – Fujifilm’s FinePix S700 is a very capable and appealing “entry-level” prosumer digicam. With 7-megapixels, a versatile 38-380mm 10x zoom lens, loads of useful exposure modes, great performance, and comfortable SLR style body, the S700 will be hard to beat,”

DCRP reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S5700 and writes;
“Photo quality was good, but not without some noticeable issues. On the positive side, the S700 generally took well-exposed photos, with accurate colors and pleasing sharpness. The camera keeps noise down to a minimum until ISO 400, with things going downhill after that (due to increased softness and reduced color saturation). Now the bad news: the camera has issues with corner softness, blown highlights, and purple fringing. None of these matter for small prints..”

CNET reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S5700 and writes;
“The good: Low-noise, higher-ISO photos; broad set of manual controls; optical zoom operates in movie mode; runs on AA batteries. The bad: Frustrating design; sluggish performance; no optical image stabilization. The bottom line: The Fujifilm FinePix S700 would be a nice budget megazoom if it weren’t hampered by mediocre performance and a frustrating design. ”

CNET.AU reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S5700 and writes;
“In bright light, images from the FinePix S5700 possess both excellent sharpness and accurate colour reproduction…The Fuji FinePix S5700 is a sturdy, mid-priced camera for those hoping to achieve that greater degree of creative freedom with their photos. However, those shy of undergoing its learning curve may overlook its strengths and possibilities.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

GoodGearGuide reviews the Fujifilm FinePix S5700 and writes;
“The S5700 scored a little better in image noise, with a result of .73% at ISO 100. It produced clean, speckle free shots which will satisfy the majority of users… The FinePix S5700 is a decent but uninspiring advanced digital camera. While it will do most of what you want, it is let down by average image quality.”

Fujifilm FinePix S5700 Press Release

Fujifilm is pleased to announce the new FinePix S5700, a refinement of the FinePix S5600, voted “European Zoom camera of 2006-07” by EISA (the leading European association for consumer electronics). The new model’s compact and robust but lightweight outer-shell, combined with Fujinon 10x optical zoom lens, ISO 1600 sensitivity, Fujifilm Intelligent Flash system and multiple scene selections, make it a truly take-anywhere camera. Thanks to an improved menu system and button layout, rocker zoom and mode dial, the FinePix S5700 can be operated easily with one hand.

The modifications to the FinePix S5700 mean it is easier to use than anything that has gone before. It will be a faithful companion for any and every event, from nights out or the kids’ school play or sports day, right through to countryside walks and family holidays. It’s the ultimate camera for every occasion and perfect for users who always want a camera to hand, but prefer to get creative, not technical, with their photography.

Key improvements of the FinePix S5700 over its predecessor include:

* An enhanced ergonomic design of even smaller proportions, which make the camera portable and easy to hold in one hand, whilst retaining its powerful 10x optical zoom.
* ISO sensitivity up to 1600, guaranteeing crisp images, with no need for flash, even on a night out or when snapping moving subjects.
* The introduction of Fujifilm’s Intelligent Flash and Natural light plus Flash modes for images that are faithful to the original scene, even when flash is required.
* 2.5-inch, 230,000-pixel screen, making it much easier for users to compose, review and share images.
* Dual compatibility for Fujifilm’s traditional xD-Picture Card™ and the popular Secure Digital (SD) card format, providing a greater choice of storage options.
* 7.1 Megapixel CCD sensor
* An intuitive Graphical User Interface (GUI) system, which guides the user through the menu via a series of pop-up prompts, and an improved button layout, which mean the camera is easier than ever to navigate.

    3.1. The S5700 is a very versatile and capable camera. The Auto mode, per se, would produce images which are superior to the competition (save for the severe chromatic aberrations). The user may prefer to tweak the settings (P, S, A, M modes) to produce more professional looking results. The user may also have to get used to the camera’s tendency of employing higher ISO (though for a better cause to get sharper results) in auto modes. The only draw back of this otherwise great camera is the severe purple fringing and burnt highlights.
