Fujifilm Finepix S5700 S700 Focal Lengths Explained

The S5700 / S700 is a great camera, with a 10x zoom, but have you ever wanted to know what focal length you're using while out on a shoot?

Accepted practice is that the 35mm SLR equivalent of a 50mm lens gives photographs that mimic the perspective of the human eye, and between 85-135mm (35mm equivalent) is good for portraits, so here's how you can work those out on your Finepix....





S5700 S700 Focal Lengths With 35mm Conversion


So, all you really need to remember is that the second notch from the left on the zoom bar (it appears when you move the zoom lever) is like shooting with an SLR's 50mm lens, and when shooting people a good guide would be to stay around the middle notch.

Hope this helps!

Cheers, Rob.
