Fantastic camera......pics are great,features too numerous to list......buy it!:thumbsup:
#12
sounds like a great deal, is it best to use with a tripod for low light shots?
#13
Looking at getting a camera like this. I take it this is not an SLR? Can someone give a bit of a beginners guide to bigger cameras like this one? i.e. what to look for, lens info (if this one is removable), features to look out for etc.

Would be much appreciated!

Edit to say: Can someone advise if there is a way to review my post history?!

Its not an SLR.

Here is a good review from experts and the users.

I have ordered one from Amazon.

Image quality
http://www.cameras.co.uk/camera-reviews/photos.cfm?photo=fuji-finepix-s5800&title=Fuji%20Finepix%20S5800
Outdoor 1 (Medium Zoom)
The outdoor scenic shot taken with the Finepix S5800 is about average in terms of focusing, sun glare and colours. There are certainly sharper cameras out there, but a degree or two of latitude has to be given when you take into account that sharper super zoom cameras cost more. Sun glare is a problem for all cameras in this shot at this time of the year. It is handled as well as it can be expected to be. Some of the blue lines on the boat are showing a purple tinge.

Outdoor 2 (No Zoom)
The Finepix S5800 produces a decent wide angle shot. Focusing is not perfect with the scene being somewhat distant. There are signs of purple fringing creeping in around the edges of light coloured objects.

Outdoor 3 (Maximum Zoom)
With the lens zoomed right in focusing has a tendency to drop off as you reach out towards the edges of the photo. Purple fringing also becomes a major issue and there is plenty of it in evidence here. Although this is a common problem with super zoom digital cameras it is quite marked here. It is likely to show on prints unless you undertake a clean up operation using a package such as Adobe Photoshop.

Outdoor Portrait
The Finepix S5800 passes this test well. Sharpness levels have improved as the distance to the subject has decreased. The colours have a natural feel to them and the photo is well lit.

Indoor Portrait with Flash
This is a good indoor photo with flash. There are two factors I particularly like. These are the fact that the whole photo is bright and the colours the camera manages to produce. When I consider the brightness of the photo the camera has done well to retain the amount of colour it does.

Indoor Portrait without Flash
One of Fuji's big claims is that their cameras work well in lower light situations, giving you an alternative to constant use of the flash. This is not the case here though. Despite the fact the lighting is not that bad, the camera struggles to focus. This is a disappointing effort.

Colours
The colours produced by the Finepix S5800 are quite standard. On the whole, Fuji does not produce over strong colours and this helps to leave some of the shots with a more natural look.

Macro
This is a bright, clear macro shot. If you look closely there is a hint of purple fringing creeping in around the edges of the watch. There are also some blue tinges on some of the numbers on the watch face.

ISO 400
Noise does creep in at this level causing a loss of overall picture quality. Even so the Finepix S5800 manages to produces a better quality shot than most cameras do at this setting.

ISO 1600
As for all cameras ISO 1600 is a step too far. I would suggest only using this setting if conditions are very dark and you are unable to use flash.

Overall
This is one of the cheaper super zoom digital cameras and that needs to be taken into account when analysing the test photos. The Finepix S5800 produces an acceptable set of photos in my opinion.

Thanks for the info guys,

Just ordered me one, been looking at the 5800 for a while but for that price couldn't resist.

Should I get one of these to replace my S5000??

I've read good reviews about the 5800 but other reviews saying the earlier S5000 is better.

Please help!
#24
I currently own a panasonic lumix tz4.

anyone tell me whether or not this camera be worth buying as a replacement 'upgrade'?

thanks
#25
Well, mine has arrived and I'm not too sure if it's a worthwhile upgrade or not. The larger screen is great for sure and it has loads of features which will be useful. BUT, the build quality is inferior to my S5000 (S5800 made in indonesia/S5000 made in Japan) and the images are not of any discernible improvement - in fact, the colours are quite 'washed out' compared with the S5000. also, the memory card door feels like it will fall off and it's brand new!

Anyone know what Amazon returns are like if you are not happy with something?

.....in fact, the colours are quite 'washed out' compared with the S5000.
Are you using the correct settings? Are the settings any different from your S5000? Check colour/contrast settings, shutter speed, ISO (lowest is best), etc. Most reviews have given this camera's image quality a very good rating.

No idea, but you can have a look at their returns policy.

But first contact them* & see what they have to say. Express your dissatisfaction with the quality, etc & they might let you return it for a refund.

*Three ways to contact: Express, Email & Phone - click on the tabs according to your preference
#27
Well, as a comparison I am using the auto mode......the photos on full zoom are not as good/clear either.

I will upload a couple in a sec.
#28
O.K, 1st is the S5000 on full zoom, 2nd S5800 on full zoom.....look at the difference in the definition of the roof tiles:

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v30/retrogeezer/DSCF0029.jpg

1st is S5000, 2nd S5800, again, much better definition and far nicer colours (I wasn't aware colour could be changed - where is that in the menu?)

Lastly, a macro shot...the reflected light on the front wing is much clearer on the 5000:

I have bought the Fuji S5800 recently which is very similar to the S5700 . I am very happy with the camera and the results I am getting but I have got one problem.
I cannot get the date and time to get on the screen once I download the pictures to my PC.
I have read the manual and there is an option of DPOF wherein you can add the date n time for printout but there is no way I can get it to show on the downloaded pictures.
Any help will be hugely appreciated.
Thanks
#31
By the way, this is the same price at Dixons. Possible 3% cashback at topcashback (Dixons aren't on quidco at the moment), plus Egg Money card holders will probably get another 2.5% auto cashback (usually works for me, even if you go through a cashback site) and that's ontop of the normal 1%.

Can any camera experts tell me if this would be much of a step up from my Samsung S700 please?

Can any camera experts tell me if this would be much of a step up from my Samsung S700 please?
I'm no camera expert, but I can assure you this will be much better than any Samsung 'low-end' camera. If you think there's a problem with it (like retrogeezer's experiencing), & before returning it for a refund/replacement, make sure to get the settings right. Yes, certain settings might need to be adjusted even in automatic mode to get the best results. If it's indeed faulty, don''t be afraid to complain & ask Amazon for a refund/replacement.

I'm also thinking of getting this to replace my ordinary Samsung Digimax A7 (quite similar to your model btw), as it has stopped working (may go for the £135 S8000fd instead). It has developed a fault that seems to plague most Samsung cameras (could be the lower-end ones only?). It's now out of warranty, & has already been repaired once for the same fault a few months ago. It's definitely the camera, as my usage is very light, & I take extra good care of my stuff.
#34
I thought I would add that I am getting better results outside with the S5800 although not significantly improved over the S5000 (if at all) considering it's 8megapixels over the 3 I used on the 5000. However, it's extra features seem worthwhile.

I'm still sending this one back for replacement due to the flimsy memory card cover, it's far too loose and I've looked at others in shops that are better so hopefully this one is a one-off.

Crossbow, the S8000fd is available as a refurb for £110 from Fuji, cheaper with a code...there is another thread on here with the info but I'm not sure it's worth the extra as the 10x zoom is more than adequate for most people.

Good to know, retrogeezer. Did you try with lower ISO settings?

I think most people may mistake this for a 'point & shoot' with little/no manual adjustment. But in actual fact it is much more advanced than that, & default auto settings are probably nowhere near the best this camera can achieve.

Yes thanks, I know - but £6 for delivery. I don't mind paying ~£20 more for brand new.

Now, I cannot decide :roll:, between these type of cameras & a compact, like the Fujifilm F47fd I posted some hours ago.

I think it was £108.52 inc delivery using the code.

I haven't tried lower ISO settings yet, but I never needed to on my S5000 which took stunning photos at 3MP on the auto setting. I was therefore expecting this to be better 'out of the box' as it's a newer camera and 8MP.

Replacement should be here tomorrow - great service from Amazon. :thumbsup:

Got the replacement, memory card cover is much more secure. Took some great (IMHO) photos of fireworks last night.

Just need to get my head around the settings on P and how to change the ISO etc now.

No. As it happens I started looking for another one yesterday but I can't find anything similar for anything like this price. The best I found was a Fuji 1000fd on Tesco for about £130 but reviews of it are not as good as this .

You could try the Fuji Shop which does refurb cameras with a 6-month warranty. Cameras/stock on their site changes constantly, so it's a good idea to look daily if possible.
