The Fuji S-5200 arrived this morning. So I put together some samples. This photo is auto everything.

Here is a direct comparison of the Fuji S-5200 and the Kodak P-850

Ultra,

Thanks for posting the pictures. In regards to the S5200 comparison with the P850, which one has the correct color? I noticed the S5200 has more pink in it.

The 800 ISO picture looks pretty good, and very usable. The 1600 ISO picture may even be usable in a 4x6 print with a little tlc.

Thanks for posting these.

hotlantagolf-

I found the colors (skintone)in the Fuji S-5200 sample more pleasing. I agree that the 800 and 1600 ISO photos are rather amazing compared to what other cameras can do. Keep in mind that with neat image or noise ninja even the 1600 ISO sample might be very useable indeed. They are pretty impressive for a camera selling for about $(US) 360.

Sarah,

Yea, it is pretty impressive.

I wonder what the picture would have looked like in natural light mode!?!?

I was able to price the S5200 at $305 on Dell's web site today with the proper coupon codes (hint for those who care: edealinfo.com has many of the codes).

I'm following a thread at dpreview where people are discussing high iso vs. IS. It's a fun thread to follow.

I would like to see a professional review (or 2) on the S5200, as well as the P850.

I completely agree about liking to see a review. I don't think that it helped that it was released at the same time as the S9000 when it comes to people wanting to review it.

Sarah, I've read a number of your posts and find them quite helpful. Also, it seems you and I share similar likes. I currently have a Sony p&s (DSC-75). Quality camera, but the family has outgrown it.With 5 growingkids we have moreindoor and outdoor action photography needs than ever before (soccer, baseball, football, school plays, basketball,etc.).

I was seriously considering an entry dslr (NikonD50, Pentax DS2) but than the S5200 jumped on my radar screen.I really do not want to spend $1,200+ on outfitting myself with a dslr and a couple of quality lenses.

I'm anxious to hear your thoughts on the S5200 since I read on one of your posts that you recently got one. Any feedback on whether you think it would do the trick of stopping the action of a basketball game inside a gym?

I've already got one loaded in my cart at Dell.com for $300...it looks like the sale is good till 10/25. Thanks for any help.:-)

codimac2-

To stop fast action on your average basketball court without flash, you will something like the Pentax 1st DS2 or the KM 5D with the ISO set to3200. The Fuji S-5200 tops out at ISO 1600.Here is anexample of stopping fast action on a well lit stage with my Pentax 1st DS pegged out at ISO 3200.
