Default Which ones best? Olympus c750uz or Fuji s5000?

Olympus c750uz or Fuji s5000?

Hi,

I'd welcome your views on which of the above cameras is best for me.

The features I would be looking for are (in this order)

1) Good quality pictures
2) Good for airshow photography
3) Value for money
4) Compactness
5) Ease of use

Thank you all in advance.

The two biggest differences between the two are :

(1) C750 has a hotshoe(TTL, too), the S5000 does not.

(2)S5000 has superior high ISO performance.

On a more minor note, I believe the S5000's timing measurements were a little better then the C750. Check out imaging-resource for specific data.

What do you need/want?

I'm not too sure what I want or need really.

I am fairly new to the whole photograhy scene.

I have been using a Canon SLR with 380mm Auto focus lens, but want something I can carry easily and not have to use film in.

Most of my photos are at airshows. A lot of the planes I want pictures of are on the other side of the runway, away from the public (no I am not a spy), thus I need a big zoom.

Thanks for taking time to answer.
