    Just recently I purchased a Fujifilm Pro S5 Camera with great
    expectations. Even the Store Salesman raved about the Camera - He has
    one. Well I am perplexed. Prior to this I had a Nikon D40 - wish I
    had never sold it.

    I have found with the Pro S5 Raw files are easy to edit, getting the
    Color saturation right etc. The JPEG, well, this seems to be a
    different story. There are so many settings to choose from. I want
    to be able to shoot and load the pictures into a file with minimum of
    fuss.

    Is it because this is a professional camera that there is more work
    involved in getting that perfect picture.

    I will say one thing, the color from the camera is amazing. Skin
    tones are so real. Gardens I have shot are so natural. Although the
    picture is a bit soft and has to be sharpened.

    I am using the Imac with iphoto to adjust the raw files

    I have a wedding to shoot in November and must get things right - I am
    having ants.

    Is there a web site anyone knows of that is more of a learning site
    than just the camera sats - i.e. Tutorials
    on the camera etc.

    For instance when you are in Raw mode can the settings like Film
    Saturation Modes be still used or is Raw what it says just Raw?

    I hope somebody can enlighten me

    Thanks
    Rob

    I found (and still find) this a useful site:
    http://www.cambridgeincolour.com/tutorials.htm

    As for programs, you mentioned you're on an iMac, you have many options:
    PhotoShop (http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop/index.html)
    Aperture (http://www.apple.com/aperture/)
    LightRoom (http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshoplightroom/)
    LightZone (http://www.lightcrafts.com/)
    ... to name a few

    But, before you purchase any, make sure they support the RAW format from
    your camera.
