Bynx-

Well you got me inspired. I went and pulled out the S-700 and did an existing light shot for you at ISO 800.

Sarah, nice shot of your other half.

Eddie, I saw your latest 3 shots at DCResource, and wondered why I didnt see them posted here. They look just as good second time around.

Bynx-

Well, the FedEx lady handed me the package containing the Fuji S-8000 just 5 minutes ago, but I managed to get the camera carefully unpacked, the batteries installed, along with an XD chip. So, as I traditionally do, I took my first picture of Bradley.

I wish that he had a shirt on, but he was complaining of being too warm. So we have a lot of skin on which to judge the Fuji S-8000's color rendition of skin. The S-8000 looks to be an easy camera to operate. It is also very evidently from the S-700 gene pool, or heritage. So the transition will be an easy one.

Aside from the 18x zoom I cant justify getting a new camera. Im going to get the Fuji 28mm wide angle lens and live with what I have for a while. At least until I have outgrown the camera.

Bynx-

That is a very wise decision. The camera was a gift to me so it gets aded to the colection. We have an up coming trip in May where the 18X will come in handy.

sarah joyce, that wasn't a strikingly sharp image of you husband with your new s8000, s 700 image looks better in sharpness and colours. What do you think yourself?

Well let's do a little test then and you make the decision. OK?

Here is the Canon S-5 IS Camera Sample



Here is the Fuji S-8000 Camera Sample



Here is the Fji S-700 Camera Sample



All three photos were taken over a 5 minute period with exactly the same lighting. Bradley did turn over and blinked his eyes when I asked him to roll over, so the S-700 photo is just a bit diferent.

However, this will give a chance to comparealmost the very same photos, taken under exactly the same lighting environment side by side. Enjoy!
