Fujifilm FinePix S5200 - Features|
Combining Fujifilm's new RP Processor, 5th Generation Super CCD HR sensor and Fujinon Lens Optics, the Fuji S5200 delivers ultra-high sensitivity (ISO 1600), faster operational speeds (start-up in 1.1 seconds; shutter lag at a mere 0.01 second) and reduced power consumption. This will allow the shooter to get just about every shot, capturing priceless memories as photographs with every nuance of light and color, even in low light situations without a flash using the camera’s special 'Natural Light' and 'Anti-Blur' modes.

The superb optics of the Fujinon lens collects light and precisely forms the image in conjunction with a 5th Generation Super CCD HR. Users can bring the subject closer to them using the camera’s 10.0x Optical Zoom (equivalent to a 38-380mm on a 35mm camera). In Macro mode, the Fujifilm S5200 can focus clearly at 3.9 inches. With the addition of beam assist, the Fujifilm FinePix S5200 can focus up to 7.9 feet - even in low light conditions. The FinePix 5200 offers wide-angle lens adapters, which increases the performance of this model for any user.
