Default Just ordered a FZ35.... cant wait!!!!!!

Just ordered the FZ35 from Amazon and cant wait to get it. They are showing a couple week delay in shipping but for the price I am willing to wait! My old camera is a Fuji S5000 and I was comparing pictures at http://www.imaging-resource.com/IMCOMP/COMPS01.HTM and am very excited for this upgrade. The pictures from the FZ35 at iso800 look better than the s5000 at 100iso!!!!!

The only thing I wish the FZ35 had was a flash hotshoe but I can just use a slave flash if needed. I almost went with the Canon for this reason but it seems everyone likes the FZ35 more.

I am sure you will see me around here a lot once my new toy shows up!

Glad to hear that you are excited about your new camera. When you are waiting however, time has a tendency to slow down. You should still go out and shoot using your Fuji S5000. You might be missing a great shot. Eetu is waiting to buy a new camera and you should see some of his shots taken with a camera phone...

The problem is that my sensor died on the s5000. I think one of my children dropped it and is not owning up to it. But hey at least it gave me a good reason to buy the FZ35! I have been wanting to upgrade but its hard to talk my wife into something like that when we have a working camera. I at least have her little pocket Kodak if we need to take any photo's for now. I have been without the s5000 for a couple of months already so a couple more weeks is not going to kill me! I hope!!!!!

At least this will give me a chance to read the manual before I even get the camera, so I should be able to hit the ground running!
