Well you will lose out on a 10x zoom, you will be limited to 1000th sec shutter in the manual modes and you will lose out on the very fast continuous shooting mode among other things if you go with the Fuji. I have copied out the following for you from dpreview



Conclusion - Pros
  • Good metering, pleasing color balance (very 'Fujifilm') [/*]
  • Six megapixel SuperCCD delivers detailed six megapixel, high res. twelve megapixel images [/*]
  • Good 6x optical zoom lens, large max. aperture at full zoom [/*]
  • Good build quality, feels good and solid, nice ergonomic touches [/*]
  • Very fast auto focus in good light [/*]
  • Unique 'last 5' continuous shooting mode [/*]
  • Implementation of manual focus ('focus check' zoom button, focus ring, one-touch button) [/*]
  • Superb movie recording capability, 640x480 @ 30 fps, but still not MPEG-4 [/*]
  • High resolution EVF (although less useful in low light) [/*]
  • Relatively good macro ability (although super-macro suffers from barrel distortion) [/*]
  • Program AE has "program shift" [/*]
  • RAW file format (although locks camera during writing) [/*]
  • Extremely good write throughput using xD Picture Card (>2 MB/sec) [/*]
  • Decent metal tripod mount located intelligently [/*]
  • Fast camera to computer transfers thanks to USB 2.0 [/*]
  • Good battery life (if slightly aggressive power saving) [/*]
  • Value for money
[/*]
[align=left]

Conclusion - Cons
[/align]
  • Barrel distortion at full wide angle, pincushion distortion at telephoto [/*]
  • SuperCCD image quality is often disappointing at default output size (12 MP) [/*]
  • Occasional strong saturation response to reds, can lead to clipping [/*]
  • "Super Macro" barrel distortion [/*]
  • Sensitivity at full resolution limited to ISO 400, ISO 800 only at 3 MP or lower [/*]
  • Selecting higher sensitivities affects image sharpness / adds strong noise reduction [/*]
  • Limited continuous shooting performance, 3.3 fps for just 5 frames [/*]
  • Impossibly slow play magnification mode, 11 seconds to full magnify [/*]
  • Supplied RAW Converter LE offers no functionality, a waste of the RAW mode [/*]
  • Still no direct adjustment of color saturation / tone image parameters [/*]
  • Limited low light auto focus capability & no AF assist lamp [/*]
  • Histogram not implemented in record review
    [/*]
  • No user settings / memories [/*]
  • No blinking highlights in histogram playback mode
[/*]

Hi if you have a look on the PIC POST, (if it's showing pictures yet!) I have posted a flower last post on second page I did this one afternoon using the macro mode. The petal in the bottom left hand corner is all blurred this was actually touching the lens. Which is why I was suprised the rest of the shot came out that well. I thought I would have moved the rest of the flower and the whole shot would be blurred.

Is this the sort of result you want? I think TC3 and KK have got much better examples of close up shots using the macro mode, I'm sure they will post them for you to see.

Cheers Ian

hello thanks for the reply ian..



ive seen that flower b4 ill have a look at it again. yah something like that i guess..

imo, most of the time u can find arts taking photo on tiny things. those big things around the world have already been exploited (photo wise). so for a change ill go to the little ones:G:G:G:|.

yah, if kk or anybody can post sample macro photos i ould really appreciate it...:|:-):-).

edit: picture thing is still out. do u know wot happend?



cheers

gideon
