$130 bucks is half what I paid for my camera. Its been a bargain. You will get a lot of use out of it. The proof is in the pudding as you can seee by the pics taken here. When you outgrow this camera you will be ready for a DSLR.

Bynx-

The color contrast in the strawberry drop is wonderful. Have a great weekend!

Bynx - how on EARTH did you manage to capture that? STUNNING!! I'm envious.

I really need to get this camera. But the store I'm going to buy from is out of stock at the moment. One of the guys who works there has one too and has nothing but good things to say about it. There are a couple other places in town that stock it at a few dollars cheaper right now ... but I don't have a $150 rebate at either one!

My wife's been pushing a bit for a modern video camera and just keeping our partially broken Sony W5 camera, but the LCD is broken (which was how we got it free a few years ago) and I can't really do much with it other than leave it in auto mode and take simple shots through the viewfinder. I guess that's where an EVF outshines an optical viewfinder as a backup! And for the amount of video we REALLY shoot, I think the video mode on the S700 would be MORE than adequate ... even if the zoom and focus DO make a bit of noise in quiet rooms.

Really hoping to get it soon ... with the spring thaw finally happening, and the birds migrating back (saw the first Canada geese of the year in an open patch of river today), it's a GREAT time to snap pictures!!

I was really pleased with this one, Tower Bridge taken from London bridge, the out of focus London Black cab was a happy accident!

Messing with the dark.....shot these with the camera pretty much hammered shut. I cropped off a lot of dark on the sides and top of the first one. The second one is full frame, and the last one is taken out front, as the sunsaffect wanes to darkness.

Love to hear what you think :O
