on the battery power, i have 8x1800mAH and 4x2000mAh. the 2000mAH could go close to 300 shots with mostly EVF usage and mininal flash usage. image downloading from CF reader and not directly from the camera.

i did not have any problem with battery drain BTW.

zoom - The sharpening can be corrected by setting the internal option setting on menu to SOFT(min. level), then sharpening in a program like Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro on your computer. THe overcompression is only an issue if you use a Normal file quality settting. But this woudl really only appear on 8x10 or larger prints on the s7000. You can defeat this by setting it to 12MP Fine JPEG mode or shotting raw and converting to a JPEG or TIFF format on your computer later. The S5000 has no FINE setting, and you must shoot RAW if you want no compression artifacts.

The JPEG compression, when overdone and printed large enough, results in bands in graduations of color change and visble pattern blocks(8x8 pixel size) around detail areas. Oversharpening creates visible transient disortions around high contrast edges/lines and elevated noise(grain) patterns.

bear in mind though that, should you shoot in raw, u must have a RAW file converter software to convert the RAW file to JPEG or TIFF (? only these 2 right?).

AFAIK, FUji dont have a free special software to convert RAW file to viewable file format. you have to purchase it though. bear in too that S2Pro RAW file converter could not be used for S7000 file converter. beats me why :?:

but dont fret though coz there are several (at least 2 AFAIK) softwares that can convert it to viewable pics. it is free!
