    always go with opictical zoom at 10x as you can get a better picture from distance, fair enough not as many pixels but in longe run betetre with opitcal zoom

    I cant give you an expert decision based on tehnical info, but as a carpetbagger, i would go for the cheaper one . I would rather have a 10x optical zoom. (you'd need a huge memory card to store 12MP pictures anyway) 8millions plenty for me.

    It's strange that the higher MP camera doesnt have the 10x optical zoom aswell???

    Extremely comprehensive review of the S7000 here - the site is well worth bookmarking if you are into digital cameras.

    Rex, any reason you're not considering the Canon EOS 300D? I know it's a fair bit more expensive than those two, but i'm told it's worth the extra. I'm on the verge of buying one at £498 inc cashback, but i've just printed out the S7000 review to see if thats worth considering instead. I've used Fuji camera digital cameras before and they are always top notch, both buildwise and image quality.

    BTW- went for the 7000 in the poll...

    Another good digital camera / processing site.

    I like my Fuji Finepix S602 zoom, and iirc the S7000 is it's replacement.

    Rex the Canon EOS 300D is the first decent prosumer digital SLR, and it's available for around £600 on the web, with a further £100 cashback from Canon. What Canon did was take the mighty EOS 10D, cripple some of the more advanced features, and make the camera body from a cheaper material. Overall though, the reviews are agreed; it's the nuts, and as an SLR, you can use the range of Canon EOS EF lenses. It comes with a special EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 lens that is designed for the camera.

    And if you are missing the features offered by the EOS 10D, there's plenty of resources on the web telling you how to unlock many of the features Canon disabled on the 300D

    Having said all that, i'm now seriously considering the Fuji S7000 as i'm not sure I can justify the cost of a digitall SLR, and the lenses available for the Fujis would probably be enough for me.

    I'm very happy with my S7000
    I've had it 6 months nd not given it a proper run really but everything i've used it for has given fantastic results
    I think it's great value for money considering the jump in price to the next best camera and it is packed with functions
