Fujifilm Finepix S5600 Zoom ... feature Fujifilm's acclaimed Super CCD HR sensor technology, ensuring the best image quality possible, but you also benefit from manual control and the immense optical reach of a 10x Fujinon zoom lens. What's more, this camera has the crucial 1600 ISO setting, meaning that all forms of blur are much less likely to occur.
Five million pixels is only part of the story. Super CCD technology has long been associated with class-leading performance in top-end digital cameras. Unlike generic image sensors, this system is developed and manufactured entirely in-house, and is performance only available from Fujifilm. First-rate color reproduction, image sharpness, low noise and excellent tonal response. Never mind the pixels. Feel the picture quality.
This camera has real optical reach contained within it. There is also one major advancement on the previous models - the lens is fixed in place. This has two advantages. There is no delay, waiting for the lens to extend or retract, when the camera is turned on or off. The S5600 Zoom is blisteringly quick off the mark.
The new design keeps the lens mechanism permanently housed within the exterior of the camera, rather than allowing the extending moving parts to be exposed to knocks and bumps. This makes the camera a more solid package overall.
Just as you'd expect from a camera that echoes SLR design, the FinePix S5600 Zoom gives you full creative rein to influence shutter speed, aperture, ISO and focus selection. It is a real reassurance to know that the camera's performance can be directed in the way that you wish it. Then again, you could just take the easy route, and leave it on auto...
The FinePix S5600 Zoom is designed to increase the likelihood of you getting a shot. Not only is it switched-on and ready in a double-quick 1.1 seconds, but its reaction to you pressing the shutter release is much quicker than previous models - a mere 0.01 seconds. You won't be missing out on much action with the S5600 Zoom. Anyone who doesn't think that much of movie modes on digital cameras has not tried this one. The S5600 Zoom offers the top-level 30 fps VGA benchmark, which plays back on television sets with remarkable clarity. Team the S5600 Zoom up with a big xD-Picture Card, and you will realize the full potential of this camera's multifunctionality.
Newest Review: ... for this type of photography, stick with a compact one. The black with silver trim looks nice and the Finepix is very ... more

I've had my Finepix for around 3 years now, and as of yet have no complaints about it. I bought it primarily for the 10x optical zoom (so I could take better photographs of nearby birds), and because I wanted a camera where I could change settings etc. A digital SLR was far too complicated and far too expensive, so this was the next best thing. I thought I could learn a bit more about photography by using it, and although I've had a play with all the features I have to admit I really haven't taken it any further. Most of the time I just shoot in Auto mode, but happily this has led to some great results (my best picture being a close up of a puffin spreding it's ... Read the complete review

I bought this camera in the summer of 2007, a week before setting off to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Thought my little canon compact probably wouldn't do the landscape justice. This is an excellent bridge camera, packed with good features and opportunity to work in either point and shoot mode or to start to learn the craft of photography and learn what the effect of altering different settings such as light balance can have. I have used the camera for nearly two years now and have no real complaints. The battery life, if operating without the flash, is excellent. The camera feels sturdy in your hands, with a reassuring weight to it that suggests ... Read the complete review

Great Bridge Camera The Fuji S5700 is what's known as a "bridge camera" because it bridges the gap between compact digital cameras and proper grown-up digital cameras with detachable lens, otherwise known as SLRs. Most people choose a bridge camera because they want something a bit more sophisticated and a bit more flexible than a compact, but they don't want the hassle of lugging around all the extra kit a real SLR entails. The Fuji S5700 is a great bridge camera. It's easy to use as a compact point and shoot camera. Leave it on the Auto setting and it takes great pictures for you, without you having to worry about aperture setting or shutter speed. ... Read the complete review

Ive been using this camera for about a month now and have been impressed at how well it performs. Outdoors the camera gives a very high level of detail and gives true reproductions of shaded areas even in exceptonally bright/dull conditions. Indoors the camera is again impressive and gives sharp, detailed pictures without any fuss. The pop-up flash easily illuminates rooms in complete darkness and gives sufficiant light for some decent pics. The ten times optical zoom is great and out-performs some higher priced digital cameras. The lens is equivalent to 38-380mm in 35mm format. There is also a 5.7x digital zoom feature. For close up ...

I have purchased a "refurbished" model direct from Fuji (£150) and I can't fault it. I'm a bit worried that the rechargeable batteries (4 x AAs) might let me down so keep a spare set on charge. Took over 1000 snaps with it in Croatia and swapped batteries 3 or 4 times.. Took a test snap of a church tower about 1 1/2 miles away and the zoom, though fuzzy, clearly showed individual tiles on the roof! impressive. First thing I did was buy a 1gb card - stores over 1000 3 megapixel shots. I suppose one day I'll find a need to take higher resolution shots but, if I do, the camera should be able to handle it - 3 mp are good ... Read the complete review

24.2 Megapixels, compatible with existing Nikon fit lenses, 1080i video recording, great price.
Photoshop may not understand the RAW files at present. Reportedly not useful for HDR photography.

Relatively small and light to carry as cameras go, good picture quality, amazingly low price.
May take a while to get use to using. Be careful with batteries you put in.
