    Oops, i'm late for this... hee..

    Heres my inputs:

    Types if shots: Insects/Nightscapes/ROM

    Pros:
    1) Manual focus ring
    2) Long batt life
    3) Easy access to controls/settings
    4) Low noise in long exposures
    5) Low noise/hotpixels in high ISOs
    6) Good ergonomics
    7) Dual media storage
    8) Good video recording (640x480 in 30fps)
    9) Minimal Chromatic Abberations (CA)
    10) Great FUJI colors


    Cons:
    1) No TTL hotshoe
    2) 6x is not enough
    3) No AF asist lamp
    4) Not true 6mp
    5) No bulb mode
    6) No remote control


    Overall a great performer for all areas of photography - Night, macros, humans, etc. Personally, i liked the colors it produces and the 6mp (thou not true 6mp) is indeed useful when i need to send for printing. I've seen differences in files sent for printing (in 4R) in both 3mp and 6mp. Lastly, it is value-for-money for the features it provides, coz it wouldn't be an option to consider if it costs, lets say, 1.6k.

    Buy buy buy! And save the extra money (compared to what you spend for others) on accessories like external flash, wide-angle lens, teleconverters, batteries, padded neck strap and nice bag.

    well, it certainly isn't compact enough to put into a handbag when i travel, i don't carry camera ard when i'm going shopping or out at night, cos i don't wanna want to tell everyone "lookee here i'm a tourist!"

    as a result, i lose the chance for good night shots and interesting street shots. *sigh*

    must still think...

    Does the vivitar 285 come with the omni bounce? Or got to get separately...

    The nikon's dimensions are about the same as the Fuji, just that the Fuji has a deeper grip. The Nikon is $500 dearer though.

    Falcon:
    The vivitar doesn't come with a omnibounce. You will need to get one for it from Stofen. The proper model for it is the OM-B but CP doesn't carry it. Most local users are using the CT-45 on it and it seems to work fine.
