How many times have you snapped what you think is going to be an awesome photograph of a distant object or animal, only to realize that it is too far away to be seen. It can be very disappointing. This used to happen to a friend of mine all the time. She is a bird watcher and photographer with some really incredible bird shots. She also has a trash bin full of photos of birds that look like dots because she couldn't get close enough to get a good photo.

Take Quality Photos with the Fuji Finepix S5000

All that changed when she got a Fuji Finepix S5000 digital camera, though. This camera has a 10 times optical zoom and a 2.2 times digital zoom that makes taking pictures of small birds from far away a breeze. Now my friend can tell the difference between a red wattlebird and ring billed gull in her pictures.

The Finepix S5000 has good color resolution too. It's only a 3.1 megapixel camera, but the pictures it turns out look like they were taken by a four or five megapixel camera. You can use auto focus or program, or you can choose to do it yourself with the manual focus and manual exposure features. This is good for people who want a more hands on approach to photography.

One potential drawback of this camera is its size. It is a little bulkier than some other digital cameras. It's not as sleek or compact as some other 3 megapixel digitals, but its picture quality is excellent and it offers many useful features.
