    Default Canon S5 IS or Fuji S9600 or Olympus SP-550UZ

    Hi everyone, I'm planning to upgrade from a compact point and shoot to a prosumer camera. But with the multitude of choices out there, I'm rather hard-pressed to make a decision. After reading around, I've narrowed it down to these three models:

    • Canon PowerShot S5 IS
    • Fuji FinePix S9600
    • Olympus SP-550UZ


    Can any of the professionals here give me any advice as to which would be the better model for me to choose?

    anyway, just a little bit more info.. Canon just released 2 models to replace the S5IS, SX10 IS and SX1 IS

    maybe you would like to consider these 2 models also?

    Oh my. I didn't notice that. But these two models have not appeared on Canon Singapore's product page yet. Drats.

    <edit> According to the Canon Japan site, the SX 10 IS would be released somewhere in October '08 while the SX 1 IS would be released in December '08. </edit>

    Is there still Fuji S9600? The newer one is the F100fs.

    Are you trying to mean the S100FS? It has one of the largest CCD for the prosumer range. But the downside is that it's quite bulky as compared to S5IS.

    Do check out some reviews on the net before making your final decision.

    Oh yes. My bad. Thanks for the correction. I was saying S100FS!
