Default s7000 IS the camera to get

I've had the camera now for a little over a week and wow.. what an awesome camera.. My 2GB microdrive is coming in a few days and can't wait to start getting video in there. I mostly take pics of my daughter now, but used to take tons of photos as my hobby..

I tried a lot of caemras out and really nothing matched the speed and versatility of the camera.
Yes, if there is one word that can describe the camera is extremely versatile.. and well, another cheap.. because I bought mine and after rebate, puts the camera at $418..

6mp native.
30 minutes video (with microdrive)
zoom lens
continuous burst shot
full auto or full manual.

yeah, there are other cameras that take better stills, like the S50 or Digital rebel in my opinion, but at $400 and I don't need to lug around a camcorder and a camera.. it's a no-brainer.

About camera shake, the s7000 does tell you if you might produce camera shake if the shutter is too low etc.. and like all digital cameras, there is some shutter lag, but if you really get to know the camera, and start to do some manual setups like white balance and focus settings, then the shutter lag is reduced quite a bit..

I would totally recommend the s7000 to a beginner because it is real easy to use at first and has the features and expandibility to grow with you..

I got my S7000 a month ago and after 600-700 shots taken with this camera I can say that Fuji made a good one, but the above average picture noise makes me think again.
My opinion is that image noise is not that much higher than other cameras at ISO 200, but as we all know this is the lowest ISO that the S7000 offers, and when you compare it against results from competing cameras shot at their lowest ISO settings (typically ISO 100 or even 50), the S7000's images do poorly in comparison. :?

Huh? I don' tknow of any other brand that has noise as low as the S7000, when set at ISO200.

I suppose this depends highly on (1) how you quantify poorly (2) how you compare.
