I am very much intersted in the F900EXR and have been scouring sites for reviews on it. I've contacted a few of the bigger camera stores up here in the Vancouver BC area and it won't be available untill mid to end of April.

I normally take pictures with my Nikon D7000 but sometimes just don't want to drag everything with me. This camera sounds like it has everything I am looking for in a smaller travel size camera.

It sounds like you are enjoying this one so far. Just a few questions How does it handle in low light?

HS50 and F900 have the same sensor ... so here are a few ideas of how low light looks ...



Those are just JPEG ... I plan to do a RAW one as well ... and I suspect that the F900 will do very well.

Are you happy with the image quality?

My own take is that I really like the F series ... I shot the F550 for a long time and got some gorgeous images ... a 1600 ISO example shot at a broadway show:

I consider the F770 through F900 even better.

Is it awkward to hold because of the flash placement?

No. I don't notice it, because I don't use flash much.
