Dimage 7i or Dimage 7hi
As a hobby type photo guy can anyone tell me What the difference is between the Dimage 7i and the Dimage 7hi and would I use the differences? I am currently using the Dimage 7 and love it except for the slow focus. But would like to upgrade.

Have you purched the version 2 firmware upgrade? I'm not telling you to not get a D7i or Hi but the upgrade gives a big boost to autofocus performance. I drool over the Hi's fast raw shot to shot speed but plan on getting a lot more use from my D7 before I replace it.

it's basically down to if you like to shoot multiple hi res or RAW images its image buffer is 2x that of the 7i and so you can shoot more continuous hi res images than the 7i. there is a pprox a $200 difference. the 7Hi will probably be a little easier to sell if the time comes that you need to graduate to something else.
