Hi!.

Im just about to upgrade from my old digicam, to a new one.

Im wondering if i should get a S5100 or a S5000?

Which have the best image quality?. I've read a few reviews, and im not sure

what to think?. Is the SuperCCD in S5000 better then the S5100 normal CCD?

thanks in advance

Hey,

the S5000 is old news. I own one and I love the things it can do... but the image quality is below acceptable most of the time- without noise reducing ware. I have PS-7 and Neatimage and must use them bothmost ofthe time, thisusually results inless detail.

This camera has forced me to learn how to use both these programs better,and now I amway more comfortableusing them...I look forward to my very next camera which will absolutely be the S5100/S5500. The great thing is I already know how to work it well (I'm looking at it now- what nice camera, what pretty camera!). The 10X is great and settings/menu ease is also great.

This SuperCCD- forgetabout it, too tiny & noisey. The new S5100/S5500 is what the S5000 should have been to begin with... and by now Fuji should have even improved on that but no. The S5000 was totally worth the USD $325 I paid, and the S5100 can cost no more (depending where you buy)- so a much better deal! It's just too bad I have too sell my S5000 to basically buy another S5000 with fewer problems. The S5000 is a love/hate thing... the S5100 ain't.

(BTW I really like the Nikon CP-8800 but thats an entirely different animal)

No problem... I wonder why there were no other replies, possibly people are tired of the comparison(beating to death a horse of a different color :-)).

Please get youself a tripod- nothing fancy but you'll need it for those 10XZOOM shots trust me... a cheap small bean bag can come in handy as well/ at times especially when you dont have the tripod(you can put it on your knee or other more stable places- many times with better results than a tripod). One feature of your camera is the "fast 3-shot" (off hand i cant remember what it's called) but with practice it can be used at full telephoto handheld(especially with the self timer) and 1 out of3 shots coming out good is possible (the S5000 has 5 shots and I usually can get1 good one).

Enjoy you new S5500! boy I sure wish i had one on it's way to me... wanna trade?

I sort of havean S5100 (aka S5500)on its way to me, only,

mine's going to take 64 days to get here because it's coming

all the way from the north pole on a sled.

Poverty saved me from the S5000. I would most certainly

have bought "that gorgeous little black 10x Fuji" if I could

have afforded it earlier this year. However, since I had to

wait for a xmas miracle, I cooled my heels, and while I

waited, the S5000 changed to an S5100.

...Santa works in mysterious ways.

...or does he take care of fools and drunks?

(I get that confused, especially when I'm drinking.)
