    An excellent camera. Superceded by the S7000.

    Thanks Ken. If you could buy the 7000 or the Canon G5 for the same price, or
    the S602 for about $50 USD cheaper, which would it be? I plan on using it
    for Wedding photos as well as general shooting. TIA,

    Ron

    I would go with the 7000.

    I have the S602z and LOVE IT!! Its the best camera that I have ever used,
    well best consumer camera. and the 7000 really performs well, with added
    quality.

    I would choose the Canon G5. Read the reviews at dpreview.com. Compare the
    pictures for yourself. Picture quality is the most important aspect IMHO.

    I've had mine 1.5 years and am still happy with it.

    Good, :eek:)

    Fast and takes brilliant shots when doing 'fast' action shots. It's last
    5 is excellent for this...

    Downside is lack of ability to focus in relatively low light, you can
    get round this using a LED torch for a focus assist lamp.

    I recently had to replace mine and got the 'pro' version, only real
    difference is:

    All black shell
    Studio Sync socket
    Cable release socket
    4 NIMH batts and charger
    1Gb Microdrive

    Got all this for just a tad over £300 including P&P. At this price it's
    a steal. Note however it's probably limited stocks as it's no longer
    made, it's been replace with S20 Pro.

    If you want to see samples, try my website.

    I'd go for the 7000 over the other two.

    Hi Phil,

    Got it from this place, never heard of them till the insurance guy told
    me of them:

    www.empiredirect.co.uk

    Delivered in 2 days of receipt of payment as well. Last I knew of it
    they had about 140 of these cameras left....

    Thanks for the replies gents. Between the 7000 and the 602z, is the latter
    a faster shooting camera in continuous mode? I see that the 7000 has most of
    the same features that the 602 has with the addition of the new generation
    CCD, but why did they leave out the ISO 800 and 1600 modes? And the 602z
    seems to shoot faster according to specs(less shutter lag). Is this true? Is
    the 602z Pro only available in the UK? I suppose I could just get a
    microdrive here in the US. My wife will also be using this. That's why I was
    also considering the Canon G5. The Fuji's look like they might be too big
    for her hands. Also, the G5's pix look clearer or brighter than the Fuji's
    at dpreview.com. Is this the case or could that difference be due to the
    shooter? I wish there was a way to compare the exact same shot with same
    settings between different cameras. Thanks again,

    Ron

    Probably because they were a bit gimmicky - they only worked in 1MP
    resolution.
    I believe the 602z Pro was/is available in the US. You may find that the
    precise contents of the box vary though - there were a few different
    deals; no Microdrive, 340MB, 1GB IIRC.
    The S602 /is/ on the chunky side, but reasonably well-balanced.

    Personally, I shied away because I figured it looked like a more
    attractive target for muggers. :(

    Try before you buy.
    Best Regards,
    Alex.
