Coming from a Nikon 990 (it swivels) I'm really concerned about losing that capbility. Torn between the A620 with a swivel LCD and the E900 that otherwise seems to be my perfect camera. Will I shoot myself if I don't get the swivel?

And what's with the black text on white in edit and black text on black in view?

If you are really concerned about the swivel feature, then you will probably regret purchasing the S9000. You need to evaluate what you need in a camera and then purchase a model that meets those needs. Why would you ever consider the S9000?

Thanks... I'm not sure that I need the swivel. I've had it so long I'm concerned about losing it. I'd really like to hear from anyone who gave up that feature. Any serious regrets?

My pro photog days are long gone with the sale of file 35mm and 2 1/4 square bodies that I hadn't used for years. Now it's simple indoor shooting and typical outdoor vacation stuff. I like the E900 RAW capability, natural light option, "usable" at ISO 800, and all the manual controls on the camera. One day I might step up to a DSLR but I suspect this will hold me for a long time.

Has anyone puchased the Fuij wide angle and telephoto add-ons too?

My target camera is the E900 not the S9000....

Thanks!

The last time I looked Fuji didn't have any auxiliary lenses that were "officially supported" for the 9000. Some people are using wide-angle and telephoto lenses from another manufacturer. But I think perhaps the nature of the zoom lens on the 9000 is such that the extra weight of the add-on lens is not advisable.

I have an S9000, and I really like it. There are others who have been disappointed to a certain degree because they don't think the images are as sharp as they should be. So far this is not been an issue for me. If you are interested in auxiliary lenses and such, I think you might be well advised to at least consider getting a dSLR.

I have used several swivel LCD cameras, but the feature is not too usefull for me on a digital camera. On a video camera, it's more usefull. I personally would get the e900.
