400D vs. Fuji s100fs. Which to choose???
Mar 26, 2008

I have had much deliberating this week as I am in the market for something to upgrade to from my Fuji S20 Pro (not broken, works fine still).

I have been keenly interested in the s100fs, but also have been wanting to take my photography to the next level with a DSLR. But at the same time a high Fps camera (like the EX-F1) strikes my attention (while I know the IQ will not be the same as Fuji or Canon).

Well, last Friday a good friend of mine told me he was given a DSLR (Canon 400d xti Kit / Sealed in box) and that he does not have a use for it (he's not a camera person). So I offered him $400 and he accepted. I pick it up later today.

Will I be happy? Will I lust for the s100fs? I am having second thoughts now?

The thing that has me confident in the 400DXti is the rating that DPR gave it a while back.

FYI... My main picture will be of Family, but I love nature / Bird watching.

Please help me to reason on this before it is too late.
