I find it mind boggling that with the rapid rise of the digital camera no one has been able toproduce a camera to satisfy my needs

1) Compact or semi-compact
2) 7mp
3) Top of the line picture quality
4) Top of the line movie mode (640x480 30fps card limited)
5) Ultra zoom (7x or 10x or 12x)
6) some manual controls

- The canon S2 IS was close but had softpicture quality and only 5mp
- The canon S70 hadBY FAR the best picture quality (superb depth and detail) but has a brutal movie mode (WHY??)
- The sony P200photos and movies look washed out

If I could combine the S2 IS and S70 it would be the camera for me. Is there a camera for me? If not, when?

In following thread, we were all quite eager to see & touch the FujiFilm Finepix S9000 (US) / S9500 (EU) Zoom:


Seems to be what you are looking for. Other manufacturers have similar offer. But this one is the latest generation with good Zoom 28-300, Quick start,optics, ISO sensitivity, TFT tilting screen, video, 9M pixels...

Yah, the S9000 would rock.

Next step up would be a D-SLR.

"1) Compact or semi-compact"

FujiFilm Finepix S9000? I don't think so!
