The lack of a hot shoe in a digital camera does not exclude the use of an external flash. I use a Digi-Slave flash (Deluxe 3000) with my Olympus SP-550UZ (7.1 Mp 18X zoom) with great results. The Digislave DEluxe 3000 has a guide number of 110 which is more than adequate for my usage and can also be used with a Flash Extender to take advantage of the long zoom of many consumer digital cameras.

The Canon S5 IS has a hot shoe. No idea how they compare otherwise, but if external flash is a consideration then the FZ18 is out.
