    Flowers with Finepix S5200


    iso 800 1/180 f3.5 24.5mm
    10X zoom, 5mp Super HR CCD, does RAW though not here.
    The first small sensor camera I really liked.
    Light, durable, quiet, and quite decent performance at a very low price.
    It does not match my beloved GRD, but it does a very different job.
    My only real complaint is the EVF, however for what I paid, I cannot complain.
    I like it enough that I kept it when I sold my Coolpix S5, and gave away my Finepix f31.
    It fills a nice little niche between the GRD and my K100D.
    I tend to name things btw.
    GRD is "lil'Ricoh", K100D with 50/1.4 is the "Big Eye".
    S5200 is "Fuji-chan".

    Hi Lili,

    I was using a bunch of small sensor cameras for the past year and got on a flower and macro kick all spring. Here are a few taken with the Panasonic FZ8 (12x zoom) and many had a Nikon or Canon close up lens.

    TEB,
    Very lovely!
    Some came up with "content protected by owner" tho.
    One thing I like about small sensor cameras.
    They can either be svelte, sleek and fast like the Grd's and GX100.
    Or be compact and versatile like your Panny or my Fuji-Chan.
    Normally I prefer primes, but my s5200 lens does remarkably well.
    Since I have started doing RAW with it, I've been even more impressed.
    Were yours RAW as well?

    I will edit it. My fault on Zenfolio settings.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Is cool.
    Nice work!
    My journey into digital started with the Coolpix S5.
    Not a bad camera but no place for a die-hard film and Hexar user to start.
    Then I got the S5200.
    2 revelations with that.
    Zooms CAN be good.
    Digital CAN be good too.
    The K100D came soon after as did the Finepix F31fd.
    The Pentax worked with my K mount lenses VERY well.
    But it is soo big and heavy.
    The little Fuji F31fd did well too


    But it allowed not enough and not easily accessible image controls so I gave it away.
    The GRD was a God-Send and second-generation revelation.

    And I've not looked back since.
    The GRD goes everywhere with me.
    And, if i expect long lens work, so does the S5200.
    BTW, the freeware S7RAW works wonderfully with the RAW files from the S5200.
