Hi, my S5600 (S5200) arrived yesterday, and I'm very happy with it! Here are some test shots, if anyone wants to see them. I'm definitely not a pro or anything, but this camera certainly does what I want it to. Essentially the simplicity of a p&s when I want it to be, but with all the options of letting me adjust everything when I need to. And I'm loving the zoom lens on this thing! Here are some shots (all of which were hand-held, no tripod!) :

1) full auto mode, wideangle (ish) :



2) max-zoom, anti-blur mode (I was impressed by how stable this came out, and very little noise!)



3) anti-blur mode again :



4) And you see the two little pylons in the bottom right of the above picture?
Here they are max-zoom, with anti-blur. Very crisp considering the distance and zoom involved.





Hope you enjoy! And this gives some people an idea of photos from the S5600 (S5200) using this mode, even when hand-held and at max-zooms.

Hi!

I'm undecided about Fuji S5200/5600 and Panasonic FZ5.

If u could post more photos (maybe photos with more colour) it would be a great help. That way I coul compare with the FZ5, which has an excellent image quality, although it has more noise than Fuji.

Tks

Hi,

you can reduce the noise with a program like neatimage ....

It's more important to have more details and more noise than less details and less noise. It's a kind of philosophy.
Although Fuji seems to do its task best.

Hi, I've only had the camera for a day, so I don't have a lot of photos yet. However here a few I have that have some more colours in them, as you asked for.

1) macro-mode flower :




2) not exactly a great photo, as its through a window, but the reds were quite nice :



3) something with bright greens :

Hi,

I am also looking both for the Fz5 and the Fujis. But keep in mind that the 5200 is bigger than the Fz5. DonĀ“t know if this is important to you. On the other hand the Fujis do have a manual focus option (but no IS)

5200: 4.5(W) x 3.3(H) x 4.4(D)
Fz20: 5.0 x 3.4 x 4.2
Fz5: 4.3 x 2.7 x 3.3

Hi Frank

Size doesn't matter.. Although Fuji doesn't have IS , higher ISO (1600!!) can help a lot.

Have to think very well before take a final decision. Both cameras are realy great.

i am posting some sample pictures i took. this is a wonderful camera. i love it.
it has a wide range of iso, till 1600.
the colour composition is good.
the natural mode which is kinda high ISO mode is ok. thre is some noise problem
over all the camera is simply gr8.

Maybe these can help. I'm pretty new to my s5200 as well, but I was pleased at these shots.

This indoor shot of a poinsettia has absolutely no color manipulation, only an unsharp mask...and the type.

This is another close-up but outdoors during an overcast day.

Here's a few night shots using natural light setting.

...and in a Hoffbrau House restaurant using natural light setting:

daylight shot (Chrome color mode):

Standard Color daylight:

none are perfect...but should be representative of the FinePix s5200's color and quality to sway you from the Panasonic. I was looking at the same camera for comparison. I typically use a Circular Polarizer filter for all daylight shots. Night shots just use a UV filter. All shots are hand-held, no tripod.
