    My shots on using the FZ50 can be found on the following thread:

    The Fujifilm S100FS has zoom and focus ring control too. Also, TTL support on the FZ50 is with which flashes?

    FZ50 uses the flash from the 4/3 system... eg: FL36, FL50..... The S100FS have a generic external flash port that always using full flash output...

    Looks very very promising. Might be a great travel cam.

    I'm thinking of whether to upgrade to DSLR..or stay with my compact camera. Can i get nice pictures (like dslr can) using Compact camera?? Hw do i go abt capturing unique pictures with compact camera??

    If i'm gonna go to dslr, i'm tinking of either Sony A350 or Canon 450D...

    HEEEELLLP!!! Nid your expert comments and suggestions pls...

    Thanks!!!
    First thing first.... Do you know the learning curve involved? Have you thought about the budget if you do decide on a DSLR? It is not as easy as just one camera and one lens.

    Go read up more first. Make sure you understand all of the parts involved, accessories, required equipment, etc... (such as a dry cabinet)

    With a compact camera, you have certain limitations such as specialised pictures are not easy, such as isolated DOF, etc. But some of these can be replicated thru post processing. You'd just need to spend more time in front of the computer and know how to achieve it. The flash control off a compact is also poorer and often leads to the deer in headlights effect. You can opt to diffuse it with a simple piece of tissue paper.

    Now, before you really make the jump. Go ask your fren to loan you the camera on short outings together and make sure you have a better feel of the things you need.
