Sounds like a winner to me. Looking forward to the S7000 report.

Oh boy, a lot of fighting today on dpreview.com's Fuji forum. Phil Askey released his latest reviews on S5000 and F700, giving them both "average".

Seems like it's really hard for one to be objective and not subjective these days.

Cheers,

From a beginner

I returned my 5000 today after 5 days.

Main reason :

Image Quality below expectations, not as good as other 3MP DC's.
Very hard for me (having no knowledge of shutter speeds, aperture, etc) to produce sharp images using standard settings, even using a tripod.

I do not think that it is just me, having read the various reviews on Steve's, DCResource and DPreview, their respective images do not look a whole lot better than mine.

HARD????

What about the AUTO mode on the camera??? Or P mode??? It is THE same thing as with a Canon A60. And please don't tell me that a Canon A60/A70 is hard to use

Every beginner should start with the AUTO mode, then work their way up to P, then A/S/M.

As with image quality, I will not get into it again. Don't be offended, but if you are a beginner as you say you are, what more do you want? You want to print A3 posters? Quality on the screen not good if you resize to 1600x1200 or whatever your screen resolution is? I doubt it... :roll:

I think the images on Steve's review look really ok. Also you don't return a camera based on pictures made by other people.

Sorry to say it, but for ~$400, you passed on an excellent camera. I think its only REAL concurents are Z1 and maybe Kodak's latest 10x.
