Fujifilm FinePix S5800

(March 2008)

Perhaps showing its age now, the superzoom Fujifilm FinePix S5800 includes okay specifications, meaning the current price is reasonable.

What’s good:

  • Lightweight
  • Reasonable speed of burst shot taking
  • Good flash range

What’s disappointing in this Fuji camera:

  • Wide angle is rather limited at 38mm
  • Lack of Image Stabilisation could introduce shake/blur at higher range of telephoto zoom
  • Lack of HD video
