Bob -

Keep us posted on how you get along with the Nikon S8100. I was very interested in the S8100 initially, but then it seemed that there were a lot of focus problems.

Paul-

Congratulations on your Canon SD4000. I too use it as a back-up to my DSLR and like it a lot.

From what I understand alot of the problems with blurred pictures was do to not holding the camera steady enough. I know four friends that bought the S8100 and non of them have any problems with blurred pics or focus. I have some on flicker that I took with the S8100 and the ZS7.

Thanks, Bob-

...For the link to those Nikon S8100 photos on Flickr. Those photos are impressive. So perhaps, Nikon is about to get out of their record of less than great P+S cameras. That is a real step forward considering we have the Nikon P300 and other P+S cameras coming on line.

Has anyone got any thoughts or experience with the Canon Elph 300 or Elph 500, or the Fuji F300 EXR or F500EXR? These all seem like good candidates for low light pocket compact zoom.

User reviews on another major forum show a mixed response to the 300 HS. Nobody seems to have the 500HS yet. Among the Fuji user on that other forum, the money is riding on the Fuji F500EXR and F550EXR which still have not arrived on the market, with the F300EXR only getting a very mixed response.
