$190 at Circuit City, regular $230. If you buy on the website and pick it up you save $40. We originally had bought one for $163 from buy.com with free shipping and no tax, but for some reason it never shipped, then buy.com cancelled the order. By that time we were frustrated and just went to Circuit City. So far I really like it, just have to get used to it. I really wanted an SLR, but one won't be in the budget until next year at the very least and my camera was plain shot.

FWIW I just realized I have one setting higher on the resolution that I have not used :tonka:

I am looking at the Canon SX100 and thought that fuji took some nice photo's also. I don't know if the extra 40 bucks for the canon makes a difference to me. I can't realy tell you jack shit about cameras and such.

Can anyone comment on fuji vs canon in general for quality?

Not sure either, but before now I had one Sony and 2 Canon's. I was VERY happy with the Canon's They have taken a LOT of abuse, but both were point and shoots. The digital Elph was the most durable. After talking and seeing Muddypaws pics from this camera, and reading the reviews on it I figured I would take the gamble for the price. I wanted something with a real lens and zoom this time around, and this one seems to give a great bang for the buck.

Here are a few off my old point and shoot 2MP Cannon Digital Elph.... It outshoots a lot of point and shoot cameras I have used.

The canon I am looking at is the SX 100.

My brother is a photography guy, has the fancy SLR, multiple lenses etc. He was talking to the guy he BS's with at the camera shop and the guy said that was my best bang for the buck in a non SLR with close to SLR performance.

It looks like it takes great pics and is $40-50 cheaper then the canon.....

Which leaves me saying its a toss up. Good recommendations on both just wondering what the major differences are in the two as far as features (which I wont use immediately but will learn in the long run).

Looking at that model 2 things that stand out to me are it is capable of handling more memory(Cannon = 32GB Fuji = 2GB),

The Cannon also has the moving zoom lens. The Fuji seems to be contained as I haven't noticed any external moving parts. My (older) Cannon would get dirt in that mechanism and jam every once in awhile (2-3X in 6,000 pictures) How this would apply to the new style camera I am unsure.

You can get add-on filters and clip on lens's for the Fuji, the Cannon doesn't appear that you can.

The other thing I didn't like about the Cannon is the rechargeable battery, you always have to carry your charger as you usually run out of battery before memory. The Fuji you can run with AA rechargeables or off the shelf AA's if it dies. My Cannon needed a new battery awhile back, but I have been milking it for a year or two, I used to get a few hundred shots/battery now I get maybe 50. The battery was almost 1/2 the cost of a new camera.

Using Energizer Titanium batteries I got a little over 120 shots with the Fuji, but I was playing with it alot and not snapping trying to figure out features.

I liked the software from my Cannon more then the Software for the Fuji

The Cannon look slike it would fit in a pocket better.

That is my .02 at a glance.

The Fuji lasts FOREVER on one set of 2500 mAh NI-MH batteries. It runs on 4 so you get a longer shoot time.

As far as memory goes, I have a 2 gig high speed SD card in mine and that will let me shoot about 560 pics on the highest quality setting. I figure that's enough. Besides, where have you seen 32 gig SD cards? Maybe the Cannon allows you to put more thn one card in I dunno. But I have 1 more 2 gig and 2 1 gigs laying around that I take with me on trips if I think I may need them. Never do because I always have the laptop with me.

The battery was almost 1/2 the cost of a new camera. I thought my bro told me it could use normal double A's, I will have to check.

As for pic storage I have a laptop and can't really see running out of space very often.

Seems they are pretty similar, but the $50 cheaper fuji is not such a bad thing

THanks guys.

I need to learn how to take close up pics with my Fuji S5200. I tried last summer on some wildlife but everything turned out blurry.

Use the macro or the super macro. It's the little flower thingy on most cameras. Don't use the zoom.

Holy crap! I was thinking of picking up a Canon A640 or so, but now I'm rethinking camera choices...

Heard a lot of good things about the A630 and the 640 is a touchup on that. Plus it uses the AA like peoples said above. But hell, if the fuji takes pictures like that I may need to reconsider...

well I picked up the s700 fuji this weekend, the macro pics can be addicting, its fun to see how close you can get to something to take a picture.

Being my first digi cam it will take me some time to learn how to use the features and such. But it takes as good or better pictures then I had hoped.
