    seems like the color from the fuji S602Z is nicer than of the nikon one?

    Any nikon 5700 user care to share their view? Coz I can't decide between the 602 and 5700.

    i aways say - buy the one with higher resale value in case you decide to sell in 1 month and buy DSLR.

    I suggest getting the cheaper one. You won't go much wrong and the money saved could get you quite a number of accessories (e.g. memory, several sets of batteries, telelens, etc)!

    Cool

    I went thru the same dilemma sometime back but I made the choice for the Nikon CP 5700 over the Fuji 602 for the following reasons:

    1. True effective megapix. Pse see the results of the interpolation at 6 MP for yrself to judge. I went down to the Epson center at Funan and they have pix of shots by Fuji 6800 shot at 3.3 with interpolation and w/o.

    2. Swivel LCD Monitor. Clear cut, but are there chances that u will shoot at an ackward angle?

    3. Resale value. Again, clear cut.

    4. Image sharpness. I had a look at the Fuji 602 image and I was not fully impressed.

    The 2 cameras are not really "comparable" becos it is different price abt $300 diff? U have to decide for yrself as to whether which camera is better. Maybe what u shld do is get camera users of both to shoot exactly the same image and print out for u to decide. Gd luck.

    5MP in 2/3" compared with 3MP in 1/1.7"

    The individual pixels are much closer in 5700 than S602Z. This probably explains why 5700's images are noiser especially at higher ISO.

    difference about S$400-450....


    if you think of it another way, you could get the Fujifilm wide-angle converter and the Fujifilm teleconverter (for a 28mm- 300mm coverage) and with spare change for several sets of high capacity rechargeable batteries.....
