Hi there, Over the past few days I have been going bog eyed researching numerous digital cameras. From reviews on sites (including this one) to magazines... I eventually got it down to 6 models. Panasonic FX01 Casio EX-Z850 Casio EX-Z1000 Canon Ixus 800IS Fuji Finepix F30 Ricoh Caplio R4 All the above have got many good reviews and all have different things to offer over the other. At first I was looking at either the Panasonic or Ricoh due to the wide angle 28mm and good macro. The Ricoh was nearly my final choice as it has a 7.1 optical zoom. However I had to ask myself what do I really want this camera for? The answer was... excellent pics with a good ISO rating.... as I will be taking many pics at night when I go to Florida again. The Fuji comes into its own with the ISO and is receiving very good reviews due to this factor alone. I will also be using it for general phots and pics for eBay. So I suppose I sort of looking to see what you guys think before I make a purchase... and if anyone already owns a Fuji F30 and what they think of it. But this is not final yet and any thoughts/advice are more than welcome. Thanks in advance, Gazza.
