Falcon-

In my opinion, returning the Panasonic FZ-8 was a good decision. The Kodak Z-1012 is a good alternative and it is even able to handle ISO 800 easily.

Regarding the Kodak Z-1012 camera: Consumer Report Magazine chose the Kodak Z-1012 as the USA's Best Low Light Level Camera of 2008. When the Z-1012's Mode Selector is placed in the High ISO Mode the Z1012 is able to take handheld photos using normal room lighting as its light source. This is accomplished by applying a different noise reduction algorythm and using ISO settings up to and including ISO 1600.

Here is a sample photo taken with the Kodak Z-1012 camera using the high ISO Mode. ISO 1600, with F 2.8 on the aperture, and 1/30th of a second shutter speed was used by the Z-1012 to capture this photo.

I have not been able to find a professional review of the Fuji S2000 as of today's (18 December) date. It is a fairly new camera. www.amazon.com is selling the camera and I have attached their listing of the camera.

I own a Z1012. It has no manual focus.

As for Auto Focus (AF), the user can choose continuous AF or single AF.
Single AF starts to focus only when the shutter button is half pressed.

Wrong!

It does have manual focus. As you cycle through the focus settings using the middle one of the three top buttons, you get (a) autofocus (with no viewfinder symbol), (b) 'macro' (with a flower viewfinder symbol), (c) 'infinity' (twin peak mountain symbol), (d) manual, with 'MF' in the viewfinder. You move the focus point using the left & right arrows on the camera's main control button on the back. As youchange the focus, the centre part of the image enlarges temporarily in the viewfinderto assist in setting focus by eye. The autofocus zone can be set to an average across the image, to centre zone, or to a selectable zone within the centre part of the image.

I recommend that you read the manual. If you haven't got one, it's on Kodak's website, if you look. Look for 'extended user guide'. The file name is "Z1012_xUG_GLB_en.pdf".

Detailed questions like this are best discussed in the 'Kodak' forum.
