While I enjoyed the time I spent with the Fujifilm FinePix S5000, there will be no sleepless nights or teary goodbyes for this ambivalent camera. The FinePix S5000 is facing some identity conflicts. The S5000â€™s fusion of styles does make for an interesting dynamic in an otherwise point and shoot camera, but I feel this feature ultimately holds it back. The S5000 spreads itself too thin; it attempts to cover too much ground and inevitably is not adequate in any specific area. To pay almost $400 for a camera that produces images at just over 2 megapixels of actual resolution, does not fit in your pocket, lacks a manual focus ring, manual white balance settings, and only contains 2 ISO options (at full resolution), I just canâ€™t see the logic. While I do not deny the FinePix S5000’s contains a decent imager and is incredibly easy to use and transport, the camera seems to be uncertain of its place. If the buying decision were on my plate, I would decide if I wanted an SLR style camera or a point and shoot and then seek out options within that style. With the FinePix S5000, there is a bit of both included, but not enough to satisfy either urge.
