:?I currently have,sorry had a Olympus C-740 which I enjoyed as an introduction to Digital photogaraphy,I'm now in the market for another digital camera and have about $600 aussie dollars to blow on one.

I've worn myself out and narrowed it down to three, Olympus C-760 Fuji Finepix S5500 or a Canon S1,I do a lot of long distance stuff,so need the 10x optical zoom and am interested in the video with sound,I've got a 256mb xd card so maybe something compatible with that,but if image clarity is better on the Canon,maybe that'll sway it,can anyone give me some unbiased views on these cameras??

Image Quality is better on the 5100/5500 then the Canon S1, I've tried them both head, to head, noise is lessalso in low light shooting, but the Canon enhances the color more. Can't speak for the Olympus, but the Fugi is faster operatingall around then both of these. I get 3:40 secs video on the 256mb XD card. Good luck, Mike

Dont forget about panasonic FZ series 12x optical zoom with ois. Also you can get telephoto from raynox 2.2 giving you an extended zoom range. plus the lens is 2.8 throuout its range.

Since you have olympus c740, c 760 is also not a bad choice either before buying my fz10 i seriously looked at olympus c750 and like it but opted for fz10 because of ois and a larger zoom, though you tend to get noise at higher iso settings. Apparently FZ20 has improved in certain areas over FZ10.
