Question about Fuji FinePix S5100 Digital Camera

1 Answer

FinePix S5100 v S5500 in USA?

Howdy from the Midwest U.S. Just received an order from a reseller via web purchase. I ordered an S5100 and received the S5500. I know they're nearly identical cameras (intended for different world markets; S5500 in Britain and Europe, yes?) but to your knowledge, will I likely encounter any problems using/registering/repairing this S5500 in the U.S.? Of course they pushed an extended warranty on me (via what appears to be a photo outfit in New Jersey). I have only opened the package but have not even installed software or attempted to register the camera. They also offered "error-free" memory xD memory cards (but would not name the brand) and I ordered a 256MB card of that description. What I got is an Olympus brand xD card (in sealed retail packaging) that says "Panorama" on it--- supposed to handle the pan function on certain Oly cams, I guess. I think Oly has a good reputation for cards, but is "error-free" a fair appraisal? Is this card faster-better-stronger than any other brand? Back of package reads: 256MB xD-Picture Card M-XD256P. Also has a number below that: 200844. Any thoughts on this? Thanks! I've very much enjoyed this site and this forum!

I don't know what the difference would be between the 5100/5500, but make sure it has the NTSC feature (US standard video out), Not just PAL (as in some european countries), or it won't playback correctly on your TV. I got my 5100 from Sam's club, and bought the same 256 olympus card at that time, it works just fine,,, but no panorama on the Fugi. I don't know about the warranty, read the card for more info, check the address for repairs, is it American?,,, Ok, good luck

How do I know if my order has been confirmed?


Only the entity that accepted your order can confirm it. If you ordered by webpage, the page sometimes offers a confirmation message. Some mail order suppliers offer tracking numbers. Some suppliers send an email message. Check the webpage for any contact details regarding the status of your order.

It is helpful to record the item number or order number if such is supplied for use in inquiries. Also, record identifyiing information such as brand, model, color, price. Supply if you can the date of the order. Be careful not to supply credit card details in any email at this point. Sometimes a website drops out before you complete an order so it is possible one was not received. Be certain if you are on the web, you have clicked a link that is not a fake page. For instance, you do not go to facebook if you click a blue link that says facebook but the website connected to the link listed below the link says www.fooledyouonce.com.

You might try emailing the company or calling them to confirm the order if you have such contact details. See if the company has a separate phone number for billing questions.

Go to Adobes website and choose the version of Creative Suite you want and purchase it through them or a reseller. After you do that you will receive a serial number via email or included with your purchase. You could alternatively go to a store like Staples and purchase it there.

I downloaded a PDF manual for your camera to make sure what I was about to say was indeed correct. My first impression/thought about this problem is that your camera Firmware is not capable of that size a memory card. I looked into the card capacity and according to the PDF manual you camera takes an XD - Picture card the capacity on the original Firmware is for 512mb here is a chart.
XD Card Max covers the S5100 and S5500 models

You may be able to go onto the Fujifilm web site and actually update your firmware.

Another thing that came to mind is that these cameras are often "clock" dependent and if the camera batteries have been removed for some time the clock date and time may also be giving an error. However my first impression is that the memory card is to large in capacity.

In this case, you might need to contact the reseller directly.Phone numbers are usually located in the invoice you received. Never open the item nor put any markings on its box. This will let resellers charge you a restocking fee which costs around 10-20%.Resellers usually allow 30 days to return their merchandise. Do not refuse the package as it might just get lost. As soon as you received it, contact the reseller right away to verify where you can return it.

Ordered two (2) books of same title - only want one(1)


Check first if you were charged for two. As long as the item is within 30 days based on the date of purchase, then you should have no problem returning this to Amazon. All you have to do is to go to their Return Center and fill out the information.
