That's good information to know. I am beginning to think larger than pocket cam, and checking out the reviews for the Fuji's. Also found Kodak P880. These cams go 28mm on the wide end and range between 140 and 300 on the long end.
After looking at pix on another website (pbase?) that showed examples from a whole bunch of cameras, I was reminded how much I enjoyed the wide angle when traveling; and how much I liked the telephoto end. And then I thought, airports, security, film or digital - and I am really now, leaning towards the larger "bridge" camera. Not a dslr, but bigger than a pocket.
Any comments on these or other ones I should check out?
