    Well, you're probably gonna find opinions varying from brilliant to
    utter rubbish ;-) I've found this with just about any product that I
    want to buy, not just cameras.
    I wanted a decent 'prosumer' camera and decided on the Fuji S7000.
    Got it from Amazon for £440.
    There were a lot of reviews talking of over-compression of JPG images
    and noise in the images, but actual owners' reviews were nearly all
    positive.
    In the end, I looked at users photos and judged from that; they all
    looked excellent to me and I am well pleased with the results I'm
    getting - lots of 'features' to play with as well.
    I think a lot depends on whether you're looking at a photo as a photo or
    looking at it for faults!
    Try and look at some photos on the web yourself.
    As a starter, here is a respected web site which has reviews (and
    photos!) of many digital cameras as well as a useful discussion forum

    Good Luck!

  3. The S7000's monster file size is certainly as good, at pixel level, as
    the new crop of 8 megapixel cameras - but 12 megapixel.

    You need to take real care when shooting, and use a tripod with the lens
    at its longest length if the light is poor, to see how good the results
    are. Otherwise camera shake (very slight) tends to get in the way.
