fuji s5 pro

hi all,

just wanted to know if anyone has got or used a fuji s5 pro, i know that this camera excels in wedding and portrait photography but i just wondered what it was like for street or candid photography...i have read reviews on the camera but it would be nice to get some first hand knowlege on this area....i know it has a high dynamic range and some high saturated colours which maybe useful,i have been offered a body for 350 with only 4750 actuations on it,it seems like a steal but am not really into wedding or portraits shooting.....any comments ..?? thought about getting it as just a backup body..and using it on the bright lights of tokyo in a couple of weeks..

cheers....

Re: fuji s5 pro

Be aware it's slow.

Sort of along the lines of... Fire shutter, conceive, give birth, go through the terrible twos, see the wee ******* through higher education, watch them get married, have kids. Around about then the Fuji should be ready to take the next shot...

Re: fuji s5 pro

I know a pro photographer who was trying to decide between the Nikon D200 and the S5, but his biggest reservation with the S5 was, as Orangepeel said, it was a slower camera than the Nikon.

Now this might not affect you if you are not going to need the speed, but if it is not up to what you want to do the 'steal' price might just prove to be a complete waste.

In the field where it excels it is very good, and those who will do over 90% of what it is good at will find it ideal, but I think the sensible choice might be to get a good all-rounder rather than a camera that is very good in a specific field.

Re: fuji s5 pro

The speed depends on the settings and the lens used: 3fps is normal

Check out http://www.radugrozescu.com/photo-te...fuji-s5-review. and Thom Hogan's review for the facts Fujifilm S5 Pro Review by Thom Hogan

My gallery has some examples of S5 pro street photography and racing cars - its all in the timing!

Re: fuji s5 pro

thanks taddy,

the speed is not an issue as i have a d300 for that...you have some nice street images/photo's and thats what i wanted to see , what the s5 pro was like for everyday street and candid stuff...reckon i will invest as a backup body and for its dynamic range...
