    How much of a myth is it? I don't know the exact figures in terms of "stops", but as soon as you save to jpeg you lose image information, so therefore you loose dynamic range. The same principal...

    By "overly-compressed" I mean that the jpeg compression level used by the camera is too strong. The jpeg format, by it's nature, is a lossy format - it discards certain image information in order to...

    Seems to me the Kodak Z712IS you've mentioned may be your best bet if the perhaps overly-compressed images do not bother you. Perhaps the Panasonic TZ3 is worth looking at, though it has limited...

    Tim11, from what I have read, the S6000 applies much more aggressive noise reduction than the F30 at ISO 800 and higher, so there is less apparent noise with a tradeoff of loss of detail. I, for...

    The cat photo was taken in bright daylight (cloudy but no sun, coming in from the right thru the window), JPG fine mode (any other mode is too compressed) ISO 100. I don't remember how much cropping...

    I have yet to encounter an LCD that is useful in direct sunlight. Why dismiss a camera based on one flaw?

    Even taking studded belts... yikes.

    Yeah, nearly all the photos, except for a few of the oldest ones, were taken with the Fuji.

    For the photo you specified, the settings were: ISO 100, 1/340s,...

    Tim11, I agree completely. I don't think any non-DSLR is capable of exactly what ZCaroll is describing.

    Haidden, in my sig is a link to my smugmug gallery, which contains photos mostly taken with the Fuji S6000. I'm not a particularly good photographer, but I believe the photos can give you an inkling...

    Did someone say hair detail?

    From what I've read, the Fuji S6000/S9100 seem to be the least effective among the current batch of...

    When you say low-light performance, do you mean with or without flash? If without, the Fuji F20 is the king of the hill for "cheap" p&s.

    Greetz, fellow New Jerseyan! :)

    Sony's W series are pretty good little cameras, and I believe they are available in different colors as well.

    The Samsung S630 is also available in mulitple...

    Seems to me like the Kodak Z712 would be a good choice. You might also want to check out the Panasonic TZ3.

    I use rechargeable AA's and they last quite a while.

    With regards to your indoor...

    Another possibility would be the Fuji F20, as its pretty small and well made.

    Regarding the shutter lag issue, if the person taking the shot is the type who just mashes the button, then there...

    Pretty tight budget, but doable. Check out Newegg.com and search for digital cameras under $100 - you'll come up with at least a dozen selections.

    Also, check out the Sunday newspaper, as some...

    I've tried the Samsung S630 and it's pretty bad, it's main issue being that it cannot focus in low-light situations. Too bad, as the design is nice and so is the LCD for the price.
