Try shooting at lower resolutions for pictures you are going to view on the monitor, and at higher resolutions for pictures you plan to print. More important, shoot pictures that you want to be as clean as possible, in raw mode. There is a big difference I have found out.
My Canon G5, and the digital rebel I tried out for a few days, both had the typical noise from compression, but fuji's compression scheme is a little more aggressive, which is why the file sizes are smaller. Raw mode solves any issues, and I prefer to use it on any photos that I want to be extremely clean, especially when shooting bright colors, such as a blue sky. Those interested in this camera, should download the photo samples from this site, and compare it with other digital camera samples, which is what I did before I bought this great camera. I wish Steve had the tiffs to download also, because they really show how clean the pictures can be, but the file sizes are very big, of course.

agreed with Bigmike

Shooting in 12MPfine is the best option for large scale printing as the S7000 native resolution is 12MP and not 6MP.

I did my own experiment with the camera. Shoot in 12MP fine, 12MP normal and 6MP. the 12MP fine is very much sharper and clearer. for my standard, this is very good .

Get that tripod out for some night shots, it's a blast. We're expecting snow here in Nebraska over the weekend, and winter shots are one of my favorites, so I am excited about it. Have fun!

How is the S7000 compared to other prosumer digicams like Oly 5050, 5060, Nikon 5400/5700? I need external flash and good low light focusing indoors (eg. dinner and dances).

I have tested SP5700 after i have got myself my S7000. Result: You wouldnot go to CP5700 as the AF is realy really slow compared with S7000. You'll appreciate S7000 more if you have btoh of them to test...the S7000 AF would blast its way

Thanks I got it. WOW. But I need to do some more research in the whole aperature/shutter speed/exposure thing. With my first cam I thought I knew it but this is a whole new game. The pics are not coming out the way I think they should.

Hi, I don't own the S7000 but an older fuji fine pix camera. Still I just wanted to add in my 2 cents. I had the fuji s602z and it was a great camera. I learned much from using it and it was a great stepping stone for me as now I own a Digital rebel. I did try out the s7000 before buying the digital rebel and the thing that swayed me over to the D-rebel was the fact that the D-rebel had real manual focus and a true manual zoom. Notheless, the S7000 is a very nice camera with lots of features. I still have my s602z and from time to time I still use it.

Default Mine is still to come...

I'm gonna have my S7000 next Friday, having it ordered at October 30th already!
I can hardly wait to get my hands on it. For me it's an upgrade of my 6900Z which served me well over the last two years. I'm really expecting a lot of it despite all the negative reviews about the noise issue. You'll be hearing from me soon!
