Fujifilm gives us a long lead time on its S5 Pro, a DSLR with a 6.17- megapixel CCD that the company has enhanced with what it calls "Super CCD double pixel technology," giving it a claimed 12.34 effective megapixels. Is that anything like double secret probation? Let's just call it a 6.17-megapixel camera until proven otherwise.
The S5 Pro's design takes a few obvious cues from the posh Nikon D200, and even uses the Nikon F-mount to let you use all those great Nikkor lenses. Plus, there are some of the latest whistles and bells such as face recognition and an 11-point autofocus system. We wish its 2.5-inch viewscreen were larger—shouldn't 3 inches be a minimum? But everybody knows the real pros don't use those viewscreeens, anyway. Yeah, right.
