Just wondering when we can expect to see a Review and Video of Fujifilm's new S5 with Live View?
This camera seems to almost have it all, except "Dust Reduction" or a Wireless remote.
It is expected here in Canada on March 1/2007 at $2400.00 w/o the Hyper-Utility Software ($400.00).

Hi Jason, we'll be reviewing the S5 Pro as soon as Fujifilm gets one to us!

So all I can say is watch this space!

It certainly promises to be a very interesting camera...

Do you think it's one you'd buy? What kind of photography are you into, and which of its features most appeal to you?

Yes the S5 Pro seems to fit many of the options I am looking for. I use my Rebel XT for many purposes ranging from Events to Wildlife, I would like to also try Astral-photography. One thing I have been thinking about is to get a Scooter and travel around taking pictures from my new Scooter, but will have to see how my MS progresses.

The Live View, Vibration Reduction and Low Noise are the big things for me, a wireless remote would be a plus as well.

I have also been thinking about the Panasonic FZ-50 (no wireless remote though), but the Noise levels concern me or a Long Zoom for my Rebel.

Being able to download the user manuals is a great asset, along with Camera Labs it is easier to make an informed decision.

Keep Up the Great Work![/img]

I hear its a great camera for people pictures like weddings or portraits. It's only at 1.5 fps though. Thats from kenrockwells site.

Hi rv65, welcome to the Cameralabs forums!

Yep, its broad dynamic range should make it a great portrait camera...
