    I am looking for a digital camera, and found two I like:

    Canon PowerShot S1 IS and Fuji Finepix S5000 or 7000

    Any recomandations?

  2. My wife faced the same dilemma, and went with the Fuji S7000. Just more
    resolution overall and cropping makes up for the added Zoom which even with
    IS can not always guarantee a sharp photo.

  3. I like the 10x on the Canon but not its max shutter speed of 1/2000. Should
    be minimum 1/4000. The Fuji goes all the way down to 1/10000. The Fuji also
    has ISO 800. So there are at least a couple reasons as to why the Fuji S7000
    is 699 vs. the Canon's price of $499 (on BH Photo), besides having twice the
    resolution. Personally I cannot see spending more than $500 on any P&S
    digital camera. I bought the Fuji S602Z 18 months ago for nearly $700 and it
    is a fantastic camera, but really it's worth no more than $400 (now selling
    on ebay for under $300). Anything approaching $1000 means you have money to
    burn so why not buy a real DSLR like the Canon Digital Rebel or the new
    Nikon D70 since none of these models will fit in a pocket any way?

    The iso 800 comes with a caveat---- it only shoots in 1mp mode.

    In manual mode the s7000 has 15 second then a bulb setting
    for the slowest and 1/10,000 as the fastest.

    While I'm at it I own both the s5000 and the s7000
    and am very pleased with the results.

    Same here. I get great results with the RAW files from the 7000.
