    I need to replace my S5600. I would like a similar spec camera with a x 6+ zoom, Maybe IS would be a bonus. Camera used for everything from landscapes to party pics.

    Any views the following:

    Fuji S6500
    Panasonic FZ7/8
    Ricoh R6
    Canon A710 is

    Or any other suggestions?

    Funds limited to about £220

    Many thanks

    If you like doing landscapes then you are going to need a zoom range that starts at 28mm. if you want to do low light action, like parties and pubs etc, then ideally you will have a lens that has a wide aperture (F2.8 or less) and a camera with fairly good high iso performance (IS won't help you here, unless you can convince everyone to stand dead still).
    Theoretically the 6500 fits the bill nicely.

    Fuji S6500 is currently on special offer at PC World/Currys, for £199. No image stabilisation though :-( and it's not as pocketable as the Canon A710IS

    Thanks for all the advice, it looks like it will be a S6500.

    Received my new S6500 today, nice camera. Shame about the weather though, need to get out and take some pics.
