I visited Fuji's web site and truning to the S3 section I read that they are saying this camera is already out. Is this true? I can't seem to locate any other such information.

S3 is not available yet in theUS market. No pricing or product code for dealers has been set yet. Maybe for Christmas?

Well judging from the previous reply, do you live in Japan? Where did you get it?

Has anyone reviewed it? I'm certainly interested.

Details, details, details...

Hi Dave, can I ask you something, I took some great shots in San Clemente California I could email you them to show you. anyway I got sun spots on some of them and did some research on how to avoid this. Never had this happen with non-digital SLR's. dollface

Without seeing your photos, I am guessing here, but I suspect that the *sun spots* you are refering to in your photos is caused by lens flare.

Very common with all type of cameras - video, digital and film. It happens when the sun appears in your image and it is usually the worst with wide angle and the further off center the sun is in your image.

To avoid it, just avoid having the sun appear in your image.

Thanks for your pointer. However, the sun was what I was taking a picture of. The image was the sun setting on the water creating "liquid gold" I to have a lens shield on my camera. Would some kind of filter help? thanks

What you are seeing are reflections on the internal surfaces of the lens. Very common when the sun, or some other very bright object, is in the picture.

The lens shield only works when the sun is not directly in the image.

Solutions: you could try a different lens, it may exhibit less flare, or change the angle of the camera to the sun.

yeah maybe its the quality of the lens, try a more expensive lens. If you look real carefully in your viewfinder you should see sun-spots so also try moving around a bit and tilting camera up or down.
