Fuji S5000 Any Good For Aviation Photos

Tue Mar 16, 2004 12:48 am

I have been into spotting for the last 20 years but i have decided to get into aircraft photography and I am looking my first camara. As i only have a small budget of £300.00 ($550.00) . I require to purchase in the uk otherwise i will get hammered by import tax.

I like the look of the Fuji S5000 as it has a 10 x optical zoom. Will this be ok for aircraft photo's (airport shots + landing shots).

Thanks for all your help.

Simon,

I suggest you try these threads as a starter for 10 mate:
Anybody Tried the Fuji S5000?

Fuji Finepix S5000 Digital Camera, Anyone Use it?

Which is better? Olympus C-750 or Fuji S5000

Fuji Finepix S5000?

Fuji S5000 or Olympus C720?

And then of course there's the Full Review on Dpreview.com

Hope that helps!

Cheers!
