Re: F700 and S2 Pro

I was not referring to the F700's 6MP mode. I was referring to the S2's 6MP mode. The 12MP mode of the s2 resolves signficantly more then the 6MP mode. Yet, the 6MP mode is able to outresolve all 6MP DSLRS. The same difference, relatively speaking, should exist when cmoparing the F700 to other 3MP cameras. I use the term 'MP' loosely, as it does not mean much in any case.

While this 'must' be true. It is hardly fair to deermine this on
the two images provided.

(1) Ratio/aspect is differetn between cameras(3:4 vs. 2:3). If you
must make the comparison of detail resolving, the accepted method
determined via ISO standards is to frame the vertical content of
the frame teh same on both images, discounting the additional
horiztonal coverage of the 2:3.

(2) The Fuji's 6mp mode even outresolves other DSLR cameras that
are 6Mp, and if you use the 12mp mode......... Suffice to say, it

I would like to know which cameras the Fuji's F700 @ 6 megapixels
outresolves of DSLR cameras that are 6 megapixels because I beg to
strongly differe here.. any links welcome.

would be more fair to say the Fuji F700 can not compare resolution
well with a 6mp FUJI SCCD camera. This may also be true for a
normal 6Mp compared to the FUji F700(F700 may not come very close),
however without specific resoluton measurments or a controlled
comparison of production model F700, I would only be speculating.

Images are quite sharp at the center but exhibit noticeable
fall-off towards the edges.

Movie mode - not sure honestly how often I'll use this. But for
those times I do use it, the results are very good. I take the
output (which is a very high bitrate motion JPEG - about 1MB per
second in 640x480 mode) and use Windows Media Encoder 9 Series to
transcode to WMV 9 at 1-2 Mbps (resulting in savings of 80-90% of
file sizes).

Speed seems quite good - especially from power-on to first shot,
considering this is a camera that needs to extend the lens on
power-on.

LCD is nice and sharp - used it in bright sunshine yesterday and it
was fine.

Just some early thoughts... others also seem to be liking this
camera based on the feedback on this Forum. Overall I am
pleasantly surprised. Shame xD is so expensive (at least now)
though.
