    I am getting a Fuji S5000 and am wondering if you have any comments on the
    camera. Also, What sort of lenses would be best to buy with it for effects.
    I want to get a polarizer and a gradial color filter, what else do you

    Thank You

    Polarizer would be good do everything else with a good photo editor.

  3. What Dot said: polarizer, maybe a UV / Skylight filter for "protection"
    and that's that. Forget about color filters, and their like. You won't need
    them, as you can do all that stuff in programs like Photoshop and their
    like a lot easier. Same applies for shooting anything but colour photos:
    Sepia, and Black / White are better achieved by converting afterwards...

    I disagree, you can't simulate quality B&W film and get the same quality

  6. I agree with you, but Aero asked about the S5000 specifically.
    Since it's a Digital Camera, there isn't much you can do "film"-wise.
    The camera achieves B/W mode or Sepia mode by re-calculating the
    picture from the colour information it's got. So I opted for shooting a
    colour picture and then changing it manually in photoshop (or others),
    since you won't lose the "colour information", and there is no difference
    between letting your camera drop to greyscale for you and doing it
    yourself but a little time and an overall better result (from my experience
    at least), and most digital pictures will have to be edited for printing anyhow.

    I disagree, for an amateur, it is very handy for the camera to preview what
    your shot will look like in B&W as a feature that stands out in colour may
    well not work when you get it back home and convert in photoshop
