I hope everyone had a good turkey/tofurkey day.

I took the leap. A Fuji Film F810 is being shipped to me. It was pricey ($380) compared to the 550 (same lens and digital chip, 250$ after rebates). But I put a pretty high priority on being able to pocket the camera. The F810 is not as small as my easily pocketed Dimage XT, but I think the gains are worth the extra size (great wide lens, 4x optical zoom, fast startup & focus, AF lamp, 6mp native/12mp interpol, lots of manual options, USB2, and a travel charger). The interesting thing about the camera is that it has a wide screen shooting mode & lcd. Doesn’t make much difference, as it is an internal crop, but it might be nice for visualization.
