Up here in Toronto the F10 and the S5200 are the same price (400.00)

Is it a no brainer to choose the S5200 ?

Yes, it is a so called "no brainer" to go for the Fuji S-5200. It is really quite a good camera, even though it uses XD cards.

I think i know what to do.

Buy the F30 if its only $ 50. more.

The things I don't like about about the S5200 are,

S5200 F10 F30

image sensor (1/2.5), 1/1.7 1/1.7

Iso max of 800, 1600 3200

1.8 " display, 2.5" 2.5"

5.1 Megapixels 6.3 6.3

Min aperture 3.2 2.8 2.8

I believe the S5200 has a max ISO of 1600.

You are right.

Would anyone be able to compare the Olympus C2100 UZ

with the S5200. I am very happy with the 2100 although it

only has 2.0 megapixels and is chunky.

The reason I'm looking for a new camera is the Olympus c2100uz sometimes stops

responding. If I let it rest or open and close the power door this sometimes helps.

This is a known error with this model but Olympus will not upgrade my firmware

without charging $.

Thats why I'm looking for a camera that everyone in our house can use.

I think the S30 may fit the bill. Myself I like a long zoom but the camera may not

be used as much if it's to big.

Solarstar-

The Fuji F-30, not the S-30 as you posted which confused me, has great potential based on what the F-10 and F-11 have done.

Thanks Mtclimber, how do you find your Ex Z120 ?

Are the low light photos ok ?

I was looking at Casio's new Z850, but the reviews don't sound very good.

I sure like the available modes offered by Casio though.

Strange that Fugi is not selling the F11 in the USA or Canada.

The Casio cameras sound like they are very solidly made.
