Hi all

Stop thinking about it, just do it.

I gave up trying to decide what to do and bought a 10X Fuji finepix S5000.
 I wanted a Lumix DCM-FZ10 but couldn't find where to get one in a shop)

It is the best camera I've ever bought. The only extra I bought was a 256Mb
memory stick, which gives me about 400 shots and a battery charger. $620 all

I am having so much fun with it, and the results print out fine on photo
paper on my $65 HP deskjet.

Maybe you can't print poster-size perfect pics from what you capture. But
the reality is most of us just want to take pictures to remind us of how
great species X was at place Y on day Z.

For those of you still thinking, stop. Just do it, they are so much fun.

I'll put some pics on my web site soon............when I've stopped playing
long enough to do that.
