Default How popular is the FH100?

In searching for a good compact long zoom (10x+) camera, I came across this model. So, after reading a few reviews, I started looking for user experience. I ran a search here at Steve's and came across 21 posts only. Not very encouraging.

Tullio-

The Casio FH-100 got a lot of interest due to the dpreview Review of Travel Zoom Camera. However, in my experience it is quite variable. It can surprise you with good shots, and then the next thing you shoot is lousy.

That's not good, is it? I guess I'll keep the ZS6 for now.

Tullio-

No, I don't think that it is very good. One of the factors that you should be able to depend depend upon in a camera is consistency of operation and image quality.

I do see good images from it and the comparometer at Imaging-resource shows a significant difference between the ZS7 and the FH100 in terms of overall details (in favor of the HF100). Then again, the HF100 is a 10 MP camera (perhaps that should be a good number of MP for those little sensors) with a 10x zoom, so again, not a very fair comparison.

You are so correct, Tullio-

It ticks all the boxes. However, in a real life shooting situation those statistics don't seem to be true. Or perhaps it is only the camera that I have. That is certainly a possibility.
