    Actually I like my old Kodak DX3600, but now want the ability to crop and
    still make a decent 8x10 print. Even though I am not a novice, the Canon
    mode dial makes no sense to me, but everyone says that it makes a great
    photo. The Fuji looks a bit more user friendly, but reviews seem to rate
    the cameras operation over its image quality. (The Fuji costs less after
    rebate). I think I am suffering from information overload.
    The question is- if I am reasonably with my old Kodak, would the Fuji at
    least produce similar images (only larger) or would I still enjoy another
    Kodak with a larger pixel count.

    I haven't got a Fuji and can't really comment on it very accurately, but
    based on the reviews, it has some great strengths and also some
    odd ideosyncracies. One strength is the zoom lens, which is both
    wider and longer than the Canon. And you can get accessory lenses
    that make it even wider and longer if you want to pay extra.

    One odd ideosyncracy is that, to take advantage of the best image
    quality, you're required to use an interpolated mode that produces
    12 mp images. That seems really rather weird to me, requiring you
    to produce much larger files with little or no more information in order
    to get the best quality.

    In my personal opinion all the cameras from all the reputable
    manufacturers make acceptably good images. Look at the photos
    and reviews at Steve's digicams, dpreview, and elsewhere. If the
    photos look good to you, and I'm betting they both will, then you
    can pick the camera that has the most features that you want.

    thanks for the advise. youre right, the images all look good to me. but i
    agree with you. for the fuji, i will have to buy their 512mb xd card to
    store a reasonable amount of 12mp images.
