The S5 Pro, based on a Nikon D200 body

I wonder if anyone can help me? As some of you may know, I'm currently working on a series of articles for Amateur Photographer magazine which looks back at out of date gear and puts these products in context with the current day.

The S3 Pro

For a future article I'm aiming to evaluate either the Fujifilm Finepix S3 or S5 Pro DSLRs. The S3 Pro dates back to 2004 and the S5 Pro was unveiled a couple of years later. Both used Fujifilm's unusual SuperCCD sensor technology and borrowed DSLR bodies from Nikon. The cameras were particularly popular with wedding photographers because of their ability to cope relatively well with the high dynamic range scenes thanks to wedding dresses.

If you have one of these old favourites and you don't mind lending it to me for a couple of weeks (in the UK), then please get in touch!

    No offers so far! In fact I am interested in any reasonably old DSLRs or up-market compact digital cameras for the same series of articles.
