This camera has one great feature, it takes a picture with and without flash withing moments of eachother. So you can get the bright detailed shot with the flash (wrinkles included) or a softer non flash shot that makes you look years younger (plus you can see the background as the camera adjusts to include people behind you during for low light shots). The 3" LCD is truely amazing and very clear. I've had this camera for about 2 years and have used it extensively... but will Fuji come out with a Finepix V11? I hope so as i am ready to upgrade. I have a Canon G9 but its too big to put in my pocket and i'd worry about dropping it.
