The S6000 only takes xD cards. Fuji has begun swithcing to SD, offering both types on some of their most recent models. But the only new superzoom out yet with both is the S700 (s5700), which is more of a budget model comparable to someting like the Kodak Z612. (It has a regular 1/2.5" CCD, so it doesn't have the high ISO capability of the "Super CCD" Fujis.)

I wouldn'tbe so concerned about the Sony only taking memorysticks- memory is not very expensive anymore. The XD cardsare slower shot-to-shot, I think... Someoneconfirm this please.

Let's go back to the house lighting scenario if we could please. In that type of lighting you are going to need a lens like a 50mm F 1.4 or something like a Sigma 30mm F 1.4 lens.

Here is a sample photo taken with "indoor lighting" with the Nikkor 50mm F 1.4 lens. This will show you what can really be done with a "fast" lens.

Anyway you cut it, I am sorry to say, that a consumer DSLR camera is going to easily beat/excel cameras such as the Fuji S-6000, the Fuji S-9000/9100/9500, the Sony H-5/H-9, the Pansonic FZ-7/FZ-8 (restricted to ISO 200 due to overshadowing noise), and the Canon S-3 and S-5. That will happen because the digicam have rather small imagers in the cameras, whereas the DSLR cameras such as the Canon XT/350D and the XTi/400D or the Nikon D-50have an imager in the camera that is many times larger than the imager employed with the digicams.digicams.

That is why our photo taken with a Nikon D-50 equipped with a Nikkor 50mm F 1.4 lens looks so much better image quality-wise. Even a lesser lens, such as the Tamron 18-200mm lenswhen employedon a D-50 will look decidedly better.

Here is a photo sample taken with a Canon 20D equipped with a Sigma 18-140mm lens that I purchased on E-Bay for $(US)140.00 that bears out that premise rather exactly. Also please keep in mind that consumer level DSLR cameras are indeed selling on the internet for LESS than $500. Just go to www.pricegrabber.com and check out the prices. They are indeed LESS than $500.00!
