Default Which to buy Olympus 750UZ or Fujifilm s5000?

Olympus c750uz or Fuji s5000?

Hi,

I'd welcome your views on which of the above cameras is best for me.

The features I would be looking for are (in this order)

1) Good quality pictures
2) Good for airshow photography
3) Value for money
4) Compactness
5) Ease of use

Thank you all in advance.

Get the C-750,

1) good quality pictures? yes better than the s5000 and bigger resoloution, C-750=4mp- s5000=3mp
2)good for airshow photography? cant say that any of the 2 is ideal, but both can manage it with a bit of effort,
3)value for money?definitely the C-750, the quality of built and the feel is superior! the s5000 is plastic and feels like a kids dslr
4)compactness? both are compact, i personally prefer the C-750's shape,fits in my topload camera bag quite well!the s5000 has a better hand grip but the zoom buttons are located in akward position and will make your thumb sore...
5)ease of use? the reviews say that the s5000 is easier to learn, but i dont believe it, i ve got the C-750 and it was a matter of a couple of days before i ve started using it with complete ease

well, i know my comments might not look very objective but i had the same dillema like you before getting the C-750 and i believe that the olympus is superior,
at the end of the day you asked for advice in the Olympus forum..what answer did you expect?? :lol: :lol: :lol:

I would also opt for the C750 over the S5000. However, the S5000 is a good camera.

Thank you for taking time to answer.

Funnily enough I posted the same question on the Fujifilm forum and so far have had no answers. Thus it looks like the fujifilm gang know the Olympus is better, but just can't bring themselves to say so.

Thank you again!

Regards,

Hussman.
