Question about Fuji FinePix S5000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

All action shots with S5000 are a complete blur...

I have a Fuji S5000. I'm not great with mechanical stuff and thought this camera would be easy for me to use. I have 2 problems. I take alot of pictures at horse shows and of my own animals. When I'm taking pictures of a moving horse at a horse show, I get the horse in view, but by the time the camera actually takes the picture, the horse is long gone. I actually have to try to take the shot before the horse comes into the view finder. It's horrible. Whats up with that? And, ANY thing thats moving, which of course is mostly what I take pics of, are just a complete blurr! I can take "still" photos fine. Do I need to go back to a regular 35mm with film? Or, what the heck am I doing wrong? Any help is appreciated!

Re: All action shots with S5000 are a complete blur...

I have the S5000 and have found that the shutter lag does present some problem with action shots. You do have to focus on the subject, & then hit the shutter just as it comes into the frame. As to the blur, have you tried shutter priority? I recently took a picture of my cousin's daughter jumping over a dog, & got the action perfectly. (I will be posting it in my gallery shortly - I don't remember offhand what the shutter speed was). Set the shutter speed to at least 1/500, or even faster depending on the subject.

It's a failed CCD imaging unit.

The only fix is to have it replaced, but your camera is now around six to seven years old and so it's beyond economic repair.

The spares are no longer available as the camera is past it's original design lifespan, if you did find a spare it would need professional fitting and the labour costs would far exceed the camera value.

For less than the repair costs, you could now buy the Fuji S1500 for about £120. It does pretty much all that your current model does and to a far higher standard.

My Fuji 5000 is not performing like it used to on action shots - even when on auto mode. The blurriness is terrible and all my shots have the blurred look unless the subjects stand still.


Have you gone to the manual? It might be the film speed setting is too low which is adjusted through the menu button. If my memory is correct it would be in the setup mode. If you haven't already checked this, the higher the speed the better the action shots.

Hi
I have got an S5000 that I can still view previously taken pictures from the card, but when trying to take pictures the screen and view finder shows a peculiar distorted purple and green picture and any picture taken is just a green blur.
I contacted Fuji and they say they can repair it for £90 (about $120)

Fujifilm S5000 model, works well but have picture problems.


You want to set the focus mode to S-AF, then move the focus mode selector to the lock position.
Hopefully that will fix the problem.

There a couple of things you can try
1) Format the card in the camera and try it again.
2) replace the memory card

If neither of those solutions help , and if hyou have not changed the settings in the camera (such as increasing the picture resolution), then the camera has a problem and must be repaired. If your question has been answered, be sure to rate my solution. Thanks!

Blurred subjects


Fuji uses a 16MB xD card with the camera, which won't hold too many 4 Megapixel photos at the highest quality setting. So you should plan on buying a larger card right away. xD cards are currently available as large as 1GB, and I think 128MB is a good starter size for most people. Be warned that xD cards tend to be more expensive than CompactFlash and SD cards.

Shutter Speed


Two things to try, 1) The release button is a two stage process. Pushing the release button 1/2 way allows the camera to focus on the subject. It needs a few milli-seconds to do this. A full depress releases the shutter, but it you don't allow the camera to focus, things get messed up.

2) Holding a camera of this type with outstretched arms is a sure way to get poor shots. I use my Fuji S5000 with the viewfinder rather than the LCD display for framing shots just like I was using an SLR/DSLR

Flash button won't select mode.


you cannot set anything on auto mode! The camera sets itself automatically. try taking shot(AutoMode)in dimlit area or no light at all. If it's taking shots and flash isn't firing, your flash bulb is already busted! I suggest you buy a separate flash unit (they cost the same as replacing parts and service fee), a cheap one is comparable or works the same as the costly one, if you know how to set up on manual mode ( they call it compose or advance or creative mode!)
