    Why is there always so little Fuji love on this site? I’m not accusing anyone of any bias or such, it’s just that apart from the occasional review of a new camera, Fuji rarely seems to get a mention in polls/lists/etc.
    I’ve always found them to be great quality and often the best value when I’m in the market for a new camera; my current F200 EXRT is one of the best cameras I’ve ever owned!

    Graeme has taken the words out of my mouth. I wondered where the Fuji went too. OK, but Fuji deserves
    a mention surely. Take a look at the point -and-shoot cameras around and then compare the Fuji
    sales with other brands. Twenty cameras on your most wanted list and not a sign of Fuji… that’s hard to believe.

    Wow! See the G12 made the list. Love mine that I sold my Rebel XS to get because it was easier to work with for what I like to do with a camera. Only negative is I wish the view finder was active

    I have the Canon A490 by itself it is pretty basic. But with CHDK I can have way more control out of it

    Darren – I’m a long time reader of your blogs and subscriber. Your content is… simply put… amazing. I’ve lately become almost a student of your strategy with Amazon (i.e. relevant lists of product recommendations that are highly targeted and valuable to the readers here at DPS) – again, simply amazing. “Thank you” is basically all I know how to end my comment, and I am so eager (hungry even) to continue studying to methodoligies (is that even a word!?) and strategies…

    Darren, I’d really like to see such a poll for the new range of system cameras (nikon 1 etc.). Thanks!

    Not sure where to post this as I have only been reading posts.
    I am considering a new camera, not sure if P&S or entry level DSLR. Just read the reviews for the P&S. Probably more confused now. ;-(
    Have considered Sony Cyber shot or Canon Powershot 300 (after reading review). I currently have a Samsung Digimax V50, getting on a bit now and lines are appearing in photos. I am a Beauty consultant, and along with taking usual holiday/family snaps I want to shoot and post facial shots of make-up and products. should I get my current camera serviced, from a technical POV how does it compare to the cameras above (I haven’t used it for make-up shots yet) Would a DSLR be too bulky & heavy for what I want it for. I don’t have a shop I am mobile.
    Other consideration is I use a viewfinder rather than screen most of the time. Sorry it is such a long drawn out question but it is very confusing with so much choice. Aagghhh :-)
