The search for my first digital camera continues. I ran across the FinePix S5000. It has many of the features I would like in my first digital camera. However, I was wondering why more people don't use Fuji cameras? Do they have a bad name or history? Can anyone explain their new technology, ex:
3.1 million effective megapixels & 6.0 million recording megapixels.
I remember the salesman at the store talking about the new Fuji technology, but I wasn't interested in Fuji at that time.

I have the Fuji S602 and I'm pretty happy with it. I think maybe you don't hear more about them on this site because they make more consumer grade cameras than professional grade ones. Except for the S1/S2 DSLRs which take Nikon glass all of Fuji's digicams are consumer grade with the associated slowness and compromises that the pros hate. That said the S602 and its replacement the S7000 are pretty damn fast overall as far as focus and cycle time for a shot, but at about $1200 CDN they should be.
Give me a mile of road and I can take you a mile. Give me a mile of runway and I can show you the world.

I bought it second hand from a well known A.net spotter, I have to say I'm rather satisfied with it.
It takes good pics (Although it did not really increase my acceptance rate on A.net ... ), and is quite resistant : it fell on concrete earlier today (don't laugh too much Will) and still shoots to tell the story.

BTW you vieille pute, it is still under warranty, I have the documents waiting for you on the living room table (you might need them).
Forget about the "extrapolated" resolution, it's merely a marketing term to define the dreaded digital zoom.
