    I don't have any first-hand knowledge of using the Fujifilm F11, but I have read that one of its greatest assets is its high ISO of 1600. Shooting at 1600 will give you a lot more flexibility in lighting.

    Provided that the shots taken at ISO 1600 are not noisy.

    I feel this noise thing is really an overexpectation. If you shoot film at 1600, you do expect some kind of grains, and it should not be any different for Digital.

    The S80 is a good choice.. it is small and can take great pictures!

    But since its for dim pictures and night shooting.. the F11/F30 is a good choice..

    If it is for low light and night shooting, you are better off taking your photos with a tripod. Using high ISO will only degrade the quality of your image and increase the graininess. With the few cameras you have in mind, you can easily lug along a small and light tripod for your trip. Nothing can beat a tripod when taking night photography.

    My personal preference among your choices would be the S80. Good optical qualities and lots of manual settings for you to play with.

    Hi hjx,

    Look up the Fuji V10 camera. Quite nice.

    My choice from your list would be the Fuji E900 !


    Cheers.
