Haha, you could always read on your laptop!

One thing I have discovered that I'd like to let you guys know is that the Finepix S700 can take the new SDHC memory cards that have crazy capacity.

I bought a 8GB Patriot SDHC Class 6 card (still and SD card) and it works with the S700. Of course if you bought your s700 longer than 4 months ago you will have to update to the latest firmware available on Fujifilm's website. You can check the version of the camera by holding disp/back while turning it on. Version 1.00 is for ones shipped before 2007 summer and newer ones already have version 1.01.

I picked up that 8GB patriot card from NCIX.com for 50 but it's on sale now for 39.99. Make sure you get a Class 6 SDHC card, as it is the fastest. However keep in mind that the fastest SDHC card is not as fast as the fastest 2GB regular SD card. However with 8GB of memory I can take videos without hesitation.

I get about 2500 pictures at highest quality, 7F. Does anyone know what's the difference between 7F and 7N?

I think 7 F and 7N has something to do with image data capacity which makes a difference in the quality. In the manual it says for better quality toselect 7 F.

I am fairly sure the difference between 7F and 7N would be what is known as "compression ratio". In .jpg files there are multiple compressions, which would retain the pixel ratio but would loose some color trueness, meaning that some colors are lost due to compression. Just remember that there are 16 million colors so it may or may not be something that you will see unless viewing at the "actual size" of the image.

I am also trying to find good telephoto lenses and wide angle lenses for a decent price. If you have any luck, please let me know!

I have found some kenko lenses on B&H Photo for around $60. I have a kenko lens for my camcorder, and it is a very good lens. they also have many other types of lenses for under $100 that look pretty good. check it out.
