Centered on the bottom of the Fujifilm S5Pro are universal metal tripod mount and the flap for the Lithium Ion battery. This flap also has a rubber strip. Clearly, everything is sealed very well. A rubber layer on the bottom of the camera prevents the camera from slipping or turning when it is placed on a table or on a tripod. These are small details, but deserve attention. The body of the Fujifilm FinePix S5Pro is excellent; it is very pleasurable to work with!
Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro review : It seems like ages since the S3 Pro, and it has been 2.5 years since Fujifilm has introduced a new camera: the FinePix S5 Pro. In the world of digital photography that is a long time, indeed. It even seems longer because the S3 Pro was actually a very progressive camera with a somewhat outdated body. This was the S3 Pro's main fault, and it was also a bit too slow for most photographers. But the images were stunning. The Fujifilm S5Pro changes all that, though. Fujifilm now uses the same body and electronics as the Nikon D200. That means it has a solid and weather-resistant body and features such as Nikon's i-TTL and 11-point AF sensor, and just as always that special Super CCD image sensor.|
The buttons for adjusting the quality, sensitivity and white balance are on top of the Fujifilm S5Pro. Around these three buttons is a ring that needs to be unlocked with a pallet. This ring allows you to select the continuous drive speed, and to flip up the mirror. On top of the prism is the flash shoe, as the Fujifilm FinePix S5Pro works completely with Nikon's iTTL system. A built-in flash is of course also included. At the right is the status screen, which displays the battery power clearly. If you turn off the camera, the counter is still visible. Above the handle are the buttons for lighting mode and lighting correction. Naturally the release button is also here, with a wireless automatic release, surrounded by the main switch.
