    You're on the right track. One problem I see is the combination of 'small' and 'good zoom'. Here's why. The best zoom camera's are known as Ultra Zooms and boast od 10-12x ranges which are equivalent...

    Here is one more trick I read about in the Rick Sammons book over the weekend. This in no way helps with making the camera easy to use or auto mode or any of that but is interesting none-the-less.

    Paul,

    I'm curious if you used the light meter to help with the exposure settings on those manual mode shots from the museum? If so, which one? Multi? Average? Spot?

    An 8mp F50 is just an F40 and they're pushing that sensor as it is at 8mo so I doubt we'll see a 9 or 10 MP F50 even until they roll out the 7th generation chip. The S7000 already has been done...

    If they kept the 6.3 and ISO 3200 it would still be the f31fd! Still the compact I'm recommending these days.

    Post a picture and tell us the EXIF data please.

    My guess is, yes, in auto with the flash off it will quickly go to ISO 3200 but with the flash on it should step down to 800.
