    Im getting a new camera and thought about getting either of Fuji F450 or
    F610

    Whilst the F610 can do images of 12 million mega pixels the 450 has better
    optical zoom. The 450 is smaller than the 610 which is a little chunkier.
    One camera seems to have better at some things and worst at others. My mate
    has a F610 and i was really impressed with it. But would probably be equally
    impressed with a 450 as i have a Fuji finepix 40i at present.

    Any comments on the pros and cons of these two cameras would be appreciated
    or if anyone has any suggestions by other makers in the same price bracket.
    Im looking for a quite good spec cam, but has to be small enough to fit in
    the pocket easily. Which is why i like the F450

    Many thanks

    If I said it once, I'll say it a thousand times (and get flamed for
    it)...

    After about 3 or 4 megapixels, there is virtually NO identifiable
    difference in sharpness or quality in the images from digital cameras.
    Don't get fooled into paying hundreds extra for the extra MPs.

    Get a 4-6 MP and sink the money you save into the best optical zoom you
    can find.

    Also, why does everyone need their camera to fit in their pocket? I'm
    sorry, but you'll never convince me that some credit-card sized piece of
    plastic will ever have the features that a good, solid SLR or SLR-type
    camera will have. Not to mention that the higher weight of a larger
    camera helps you TAKE BETTER PICTURES through the camera being more
    stable in your hand or on a tripod.

    Of course, if all you're going to take is pictures of your dog or the
    grandkids, then I guess it doesn't matter. Just drop $100 on a point n
    shoot.

    Sorry... I haven't had my Wheaties yet and it's that time of the
    month...
