Comparable quality.Z750 slightly better in details, but have colored interference on the water surface. The sensitivity in dark places of s5n seems to be better (perhaps).

Yes, I own this camera a couple of weeks.

Good question. It's fine :-)

You'd betterlook atphoto and video examples and read reviews.



If you need samples in some particular conditions, feel free to ask - I'll send you them by email orupload them toany place you want.

thanks man for help

when i saw videos of s5z,it seems they not very sharp,and are a little dark,what do you think? the one shown at pentax japan website is a little sharper.

if possible canyou post a clip of someone playing tennis because thats how i;m going to use it. how is its burst mode? its review says that its pretty slow,is it?

The video is not that sharp that in some other cameras because autofocus is not working in video mode. But in other hand, in other cameras the image is not always in focus andautofocus function always "searching" for focus, changing it in both direction, and sometimes it's nagging.

The video is not dark at all.

I can't send you a clip of someone playing tennis because there's no tennis players around here right now. Though you can look at this: http://webfile.ru/get/25183563/IMGP0168_1.avi

There are people moving around a room.

I never use burst mode, actualy I don't even know how to activate it ;-)

Ok, let's lookto manual - got it. Testing...Looks likenearly1.5 seconds from shot to shot in multishot mode.Is it slow?Recorded pixels - 5M, quality - best.

I don't own s5z, only s5n.

oh i thought u owned s5z ,it is the successor of s5n so i think it should be better

hey when you play movies on tv how do they look? i'v read that u can slow down the movei in playback abnd fast forward it,is it true? when you purchased this camera didi you compared it with any other camera?

now i'm really confused among casio s500 and pentax s5z
