Simply stated, the Fuji F-10 is a gang busters camera. However, IMO, the Fuji S-9000 is a way over hyped digital camera that failed to live up to expectations.

Isnt the S9000 different than the E900?

I saw in another post you have both the F10 and E900.

How do they compare?

If you could only get one and price wasnt a factor which one would you get?

I am looking for the best point and shoot camera.

Netman-

Please understand, the E-900 is an entirely different camera. It is a point and shoot digital camera. The S-9000 is supposed to be the super camera, while offering a lens that can traverse (in 35mm equivalents) the range of 28 to 300mm. But, in truth, it just does not do it,IMO. Please do not be caught up in the hoopla.

Thanks for this info.

SO how would you compare the F10 to the E900? I was pretty much sold on the F10 but like the increased mp and physical shape of the E900. It seems the E900 would fit better in your hands.

All I can give you is my own personal experience with these two cameras. The F-10 has a higher max ISO of 1600 versus only 800 on the E-900. There is less noise in the F-10 images, and low light level performance seems better on the F-10.

Do you like the F10 better than the E900?

Yes, Netman, that is exactly what I am saying.

I own the F10, and owned the E550 before that, which is very similar to the E900. I have done some research on the E900, as it has sparked my interest. The E900 is good compared to the F10 because it has more wide angle and more zoom, a viewfinder, more resolution, and more manual controls. However, its screen is smaller, noise is significantly worse, and is more expensive. The F10 is also more pocketable.

Noise levels at ISO800 on the F10 are comparable to other compact's ISO200s, including the E900, sacrificing very little detail. I personally would have perfered the 5th gen 6MP sensor put in the E body, so they could get the noise of the F10 with the features of the E series.

I personally prefer the F10 due to pocketability and great noise control. I wouldn't mind the larger camera if it outperformed the smaller, but that is not the case here.
