Fuji S5600 questions

Discussion in 'Fuji' started by Luke Siemaszko, May 21, 2006.

  1. I almost love my Fuji S602 but it has three major failings

    - noise in 1600ASA mode makes it almost unusable
    - low light focus is abysmal, lots of wasted shots
    - very poor battery life due (I think) to having to drive the lens in
    and out


    The S5600 looks like a good alternative
    - it specifically says the lens is fixed, so I would hope the battery
    life is better

    As it is a newer model I would hope the noise and flow light focus
    performance would be better. But it would be sily to buy without
    checking these out.

    So if someone out there has one of these and could advise how they find
    it on the above points, I would be very grateful.

    Hi Luke,

    I don't have this camera (got the S7000) but you can find a good review
    of the S5600 here:

    I have the 5600 and find the battery life to be excellent. I'm using
    NiMh 2500 batteries. Low light focus is spot on as it has a Auto Focus
    illuminator. Noise is vey high at 1600 as with alot of camera's but 800
    is possibly usable for snaps.
