some nice pictures there thanks. The fuji costs 450 canadian and the canon is 380. So unless there is more then just personal preferance involved, i'll probably stick with the s60. I will try them both out before i buy though.

The S5100 has a 10X (37 to 370 MM) optical zoom, vs. 3.6X (28 to 100 mm) for the Canon, the Fuji uses AA batteries and the Canon uses a proprietary Li-Ion battery, the cycle times for the Fuji are a little faster than the Canon, especially after 5 shots, when the Canon has to dump its buffer (no buffer on the S5100), and the Canon is limited to 30 second video clips in the high resolution mode, whereas the Fuji is limited only to the size of the memory card.

I won't tell you which one feels better in my hands or which one takes the better pictures...that's a matter of personal preference.

Good luck with your new camera.
