    I've been a fan of Fuji for some time, my current camera is a Fuji
    4700 Zoom.

    But, I want to upgrade to a new camera, to be used in a growing
    interest in landscape/seascape photography. I want some manual
    controls for experimenting with pictures. I also want to be able take
    those holiday snaps!!

    I have had a good look at the Fuji S7000 - which seems to have all the
    features I'm looking for. However, I've been looking at alternatives
    and wanted to know what the NG thought of the Panasonic Lumix

    Many thanks

    Photography a few years back; the Panasonic gets nowhere near the

    It was some school leaving do, in a Pizza Hut restaurant, and it
    involved Cadbury's Buttons. The brown ones.

    At this point, I told her I wanted to hear no more.

    Needless to say, it wasn't covered by insurance.

    Hi Paul,

    While I cannot directly comment on the models you list I would add the new
    Canon S2 camera and check www.dpreview.com for more details and owners
    comments on all the cameras.
