Fujifilm FinePix S20 Pro review

I've just acquired this camera after using an S5000 for a few years. The S20 pro is a better camera, with good optics, and a comprehensive range of features. Image quality is fine, and when enhanced by the wide angle and zoom lens attachments, this camera has a lot to offer. I've read some criticisms that the switches can turn themselves on or off in your camera bag. I've never had this problem and would put it down to clumsy handling-you can't manhandle a digital like it's some old analogue brick. You should always check settings anyway-this is standard good practise.

Problems:

Can be a bit noisy-on some settings there's a lot of whirring and chirruping noises-doesn't bother me, but some users may not like this. I've never been keen on Fuji menus-there's a lot of toggling backwards and forwards to find the feature that you want, but this is really my only gripe.
It eats batteries, but don't they all?
