Need a good low light camera and I've been looking at the Fuji F10, Canon a620 and Canon S2. Now I'm wondering if I need image stabilization and maybe I should just "bite the bullet" and go for a dslr or 1 step below dslr. I don't understand the "f-stop" thing ( although willing to learn) Most of my pictures are of my kids indoors and although with a flash I can get a good shot of them with my Canon S230, the background is pitch black. Raising ISO just ruins the photo with a lot of noise.

I'd like a little more zoom than I have now (2x) and also be able to grow with the camera.

Thanks.

RandyeSue-

You have two threads (questions) on the board right now. That is bound to cause some confusion. On your other thread I just posted an example photo showing approximately what a Canon A-620 could do at ISO 100 with a slave flash.

The Fuji F-10 could take the same photo without the add-on slave flash unit.

The Canon S-2 could take the same photo but it would definitely have to use the slave flash.

I hope that helps.

Sorry, I couldn't find my original question when I posted the 2nd question. Thanks for your help.
