Time for a new digital camera.

Okay, it’s long past time for me to buy a new digital camera. The one I have now is a Fuji “FinePix 1400 Zoom”, and it has served me well for many years, but it’s also very dated – only 1 MegaPixel, no ability to shoot videos, limited manual control, and so on… It also has some stuck pixels, and the battery door keeps breaking (I’ve replaced it 3 times now).

I’ve done quite a bit of research on the latest digital cameras and I keep coming back to Fuji and Canon. I love my Canon photo printer, and their cameras seem excellent based on the reviews I’ve read. I’ve been looking at the A80 and the G5.

The Canons look very good, however I’m really leaning towards the 6.3 MegaPixel Fuji FinePix S7000. It is a higher resolution camera compared to the two Canon cameras mentioned above, it uses the same batteries as my old camera (I won’t have to buy a new battery charger and rechargeable batteries), and I already own a xD-picture card reader, which this camera can use. Another feature I really like about this camera that trumps the Canon is the 30 FPS 640×480 video capability. The videos are only limited in length by the size of media being used, so that’s a huge selling point for me (I can finally add good quality videos to the site!)

Your suggestions and opinions on these cameras are needed, so let’s talk about digital cameras today. I’m going to post this update in the Off Topic Forum. Look for the thread “Help me pick a new digital camera!”. Please note that you must be a registered user to view or post to the Off Topic forum.
