    I wonder what camera would perform better? The output of course is
    important, which I'm sure both will have positive ones, but I wonder which
    camera is FASTER?? Anyone know?

    Yes I'm wondering what the S7000 is like too. I don't know why there aren't
    any proper reviews about it on the net. The camera is on sale now as far as
    I know.

    Steve's has a review:

    http://www.steves-digicams.com/2003_reviews/s7000.html

    TBH from my own viewpoint whilst it has some nice features the 602z is
    still a tad faster for continuous shooting. Also it's got a better ISO
    rating for night shots.

    According to reviews at Steve's (www.steves-digicams.com) the S7000 is a
    little faster (3.3 fps vs. 3fps). It also shoots up to 5 frames max, while
    the C5060 does only 4 (or 10 max but only in HQ mode at 1.4 fps). And the
    S7000 has a continuous mode (same as my S602) that will conitinue shooting
    until you release the shutter, and then record the last 5 images taken. This
    could be important if you need to continue following the action longer than
    you anticipated.

    Hope this helps.

    I was comparing the S7000 to the Olympus C5060, and only as reported by
    Steve's Digicams. I.E., the S7000 is a little faster than the C5060 in
    continuous shooting mode. The S602 was not invovled there. But if it were,
    the S602 is rated at 5 fps, also from Steve's.

    I really had high expectations for the S7000 but I was disappointed with the
    picture quality after I read that review by steves-digicams.com

    Now I'm looking at the Panasonic Lumix FZ-10 with 12x Leica lens with
    Optical Image Stabilizer.

    So many cameras! So much choice now.

    OK. Was that 3.3 fps for the Fuji S602 or the S7000? Just curious.

  8. I think there are quite a few digicams that don't let you turn the LCD
    so it it's face is not pointing outwards (if that is what you meant).

    Do people really find this a problem in practice?

    The other view point is that, the more you swivel the connection, the
    more strain you are putting on whatever cable is feeding the LCD
    screen - potential for wear & tear there perhaps?

    Yes, a couple points:

    1. Scratches: My wifes Nikon 2500 screen is so badly scratched to make in
    nearly unusable. For her Kodak DX6490, I cut to shape a screen prtector
    fro my IPAQ Pocket PC to hopefully prevent that happening. I don't have a
    dig. camera I just use my wifes, nothing appeals at a price point I am
    prepared to pay, yet :)

    2. Enhanced useability: My cam-corder has a pivioting LCD screen, this lets
    me take over head shots with ease, this is an excellent feature IMO (ah la
    Canon G3 et al)
    Agreed... though hopefully it is strong enough to last the life of the
    camera :)
