I ended up ordering from Amazon because I could also order the batteries and an 8gb card for like 40 less than w/B&H, not sure why (same brand of batteries, Patriot card from Amazon, SanDisc from B&H). Everything there seemed to just cost more (shipping, etc.). My folks live like 3 blocks from them, though, so we patronize them regularly lol!
One thing about B&H - if they accept your order, it goes out on the next available ship date. If it isn't available for immediate shipping either they won't accept the order, or it will say so on the item page, so there will be no surprises. Worth a few extra dollars, if you ask me. And Patriot cards are probably not the quality equals of SanDisk - when I have seen them in stores (like Fry's) they were the cheapest ones on the rack!

penolta - I've had a ton of Patriot cards, never had an issue. They also make reliable flash drives, which I've purchased as group gifts etc., and never had a dud. I think as long as it's a class 6 speed card, it should be fine, eh?

Sarah Joyce I will be looking for your initial review and more detaile thoughts on this camera. I had wanted to ask if you have any thoughts on how the HS10 compares to the Olympus E-P1 with the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 kit.

Ganibar-

Welcome to the Forum and to the Fuji P+S folder. We're delighted that you dropped by.

On a scale of 1 to 10, the HS-10 rates 4, the EPL1 rates 8.

Here is the first photo out of the HS-10. This is a red hot poker blossom at 500mm. It photo is hand held and a lens hood was used to reduce lens flare. I also used EV-0.3. The actual distance from camera to blossom was 22 feet.

Crax-

It time to invest in an EXIF Reader, all the EXIF info is there!

The shot was taken at a shutter speed of 1/400th at ISO 200. That is why I am not laid back by the HS-10 thus far.
