    Hi all,

    Yes, I know this camera has been out in the market for ages. However, for
    those
    interested, feel free to have a look here ...

    Feel free to reply to this post if you want to comment on the review. It's
    only my fourth one, and I'm still learning how to write them so that they
    make sense. You can see my other reviews (E-300, Fuji S5000, Fuji S7000),
    and shareware photo competition software here..

  2. Saul,

    I think that you should add a note about the manual focus. I have this camera
    and found this feature really hard to use. Surely designed by Bastards
    Incorporated.

    You use the left hand to press *and hold* the MF button, then use the
    right thumb to rotate the focus wheel. You are supposed to now use the
    third hand to hold the subject or shadow it with your hat or whatever
    you need. What a stupid idea to have to keep pressing the MF button!!!

    In most situations I find it impossible to use.

    I find it a big Con, but naturally, you will enter your own opinion
    in your review.
