The FinePix S5 Pro is a digital single lens reflex camera introduced by Fujifilm on 25 September 2006 and since discontinued.[1] It replaces the previous FinePix S3 Pro and keeps the Nikon F mount compatibility, including DX size lenses. It is based on the Nikon D200 body,[2] and benefits from its improvements: 11-point autofocus, i-TTL flash, a bigger 2.5-inch (64 mm) LCD and a lithium-ion battery. It boasts a Super CCD 23×15.5 mm image sensor of the same configuration as its predecessor, with 6.17 million low sensitivity pixels and 6.17 million high sensitivity pixels to give a high dynamic range, and a boost to 3200 ISO.

It introduces also a face detection feature for reviewing those details faster and a "live view" function to help focusing and to take pictures without using the viewfinder. It is possible to use it in tethered operation, to connect a barcode reader and a wired ethernet or wifi link.[3]

Compatibility with Nikon D200 battery systems[edit]

While the Finepix S5 Pro shares the same body design as the Nikon D200, it is not fully compatible with the Nikon EN-EL3e. The Nikon EN-EL3e will not even work when using the Nikon MB-D200 battery pack and vertical battery grip, You must use either the Fujifilm NP-150 lithium batteries or 6 AA cells, Fuji only approves LR6 (AA-Alkaline), HR6 (AA Ni-MH) and ZR6 (AA-Ni-Mn). Fuji does not approve the use of Ni-CD, lithium or manganese AA Batteries.

UV/IR version of camera[edit]

On July 13, 2007, Fujifilm announced an ultraviolet and infrared sensitive version of the Finepix S5 Pro, the FinePix IS Pro. The camera is marketed towards the law-enforcement, medical and scientific communities.[4]
