Well I thought it was going to be Sony all the way awhile ago and expected more from the newest W7 or P200, but neither really got me excited so I started looking.

The Canon SC500 was a logical choice to conceder, and then I just happened on the Fujifilm F10 and it got in the picture too. The Fujifilm F10 camera is what I got after a couple days of hands-on at the stores looking and pricing.

Sorry Sony, the F10 is the best high quality 'point and shoot' at this time. Its not perfect, no real manual control, but its image is better than anything else in its price range (and even above) in compact cameras. Its battery is the best, and unique low light ISO of 1600 is really usable, at ISO 400/800 its noise is better than the competition at half the rated ISO, start up time is very fast and shutter and focus very responsive. It fits better in my hand than the Sonys (the W7 is ok but a real brick) and still is fairly compact like the Canon. Well made, solid feel, and a big screen.

So I guess I'm happy with it. For a compact camera to grab and use its a very good option. Natural light without flash, fast to use, great picture and build quality. If you can live without the bells and whistles this may be your perfect snap-shot camera.

This camera seems to be getting good reviews and the low ISO noise sounds great. I think my choice would be between this and the Panasonic with OIS. I tend not to carry my DSLR so I am thinking of carrying this camera.

Thanks for your post regarding the Fuji F-10. I too now have one on order with delivery scheduled for 05/18. Surely the sample photos and the reviews that I have seen on the F-10 have been quite impressive.

I will be anxious to try some photos with the F-10. I have two major trips coming up soon and it will go along with my Canon 20D outfit. There are times when you don't want to pull out the "heavy artillery."
