FujifilmFujifilm FinePix S5 Pro review : It seems like ages since the S3 Pro, and it has been 2.5 years since Fujifilm has introduced a new camera: the FinePix S5 Pro. In the world of digital photography that is a long time, indeed. It even seems longer because the S3 Pro was actually a very progressive camera with a somewhat outdated body. This was the S3 Pro's main fault, and it was also a bit too slow for most photographers. But the images were stunning. The Fujifilm S5Pro changes all that, though. Fujifilm now uses the same body and electronics as the Nikon D200. That means it has a solid and weather-resistant body and features such as Nikon's i-TTL and 11-point AF sensor, and just as always that special Super CCD image sensor.

With its predecessor achieving recognition for its excellent ergonomics, the FinePix S5 Pro will take the system into a different league, using a tough, professional magnesium alloy shell. With weatherproof seals, and first-rate design, the S5 Pro will be a camera truly deserving of the term ‘workhorse’, equally at home in the studio as on a nature assignment in a humid rainforest. The camera’s shutter mechanism will be testament to its durability, as it has been tested by Fujifilm to exceed the key benchmark of 100,000 cycles.

Fujifilm S5 Pro digital SLR - ISO settings
Real Photo Technology Pro, which combines the Super CCD SR Pro sensor and the RP Processor Pro, allows for the wide dynamic range with smoother tonality from brightest light to darkest shadow. The re-designed new Super CCD SR Pro features an optimized low-pass filter that will reduce the noise and minimize moiré. The RP Processor Pro features two cycles of noise reduction so photographers can snap pictures at light sensitivities as high as ISO 3200 with less noise than comparable cameras at similar ISO settings.

Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro - Face detection
New for the DSLR is the face detection. Fujifilm is the first manufacturer to offer this technique in this class. It only works during the review mode, unlike compact cameras in which it can operate during shooting mode. When you review the images, you can zoom in quickly and control the faces to see if they are in focus. The face is always the most important part of the photo, after all. It wouldn't surprise me if this technique is just the tip of the iceberg. Another special feature is the Live View. Panasonic and Olympus already have it, and Canon is also applying it, but it is still rare for the SLRs. The Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro, just like the S3 Pro, has a mirror that is flipped up for half a minute, so that the light can fall directly on the sensor and the data are displayed on the 2.5-inch screen.

Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro digital SLR review
On the inside, the Fujifilm S5 Pro is a real Fuji camera, with all its unique techniques. It is an interesting digital camera and we were very satisfied we could use the Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro for a while so that we could test it out thoroughly. The results can be read in the following Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro review.
