At ISO 800 noise is beginning to affect sharpness and detail

Always on GPS vs. On when camera is on - GPS will go through a full cold acquisition if it's moved more than about a hundred miles when turned off. If you leave it on during transit (assuming it can see the satellites) it can do a quick warm startup at the other end. It will hammer the battery though.

This would be tempting if I'd not just got a Panasonic TZ8. I've spent far too much on cameras recently, but maybe next year...

This is a great travel cam, admittedly it had some problems in the beginning, as Fuji seem to be having some quality control issues, but after a few firmware updates the battery and GPS are working fine on my unit!
Only had it about 3 months, and once I'd worked out a few settings, like only shooting in "M" image size (8mp) it started to exceed my expectations!
I've taken it to concerts, flower shows, nature walks and on holiday to Portugal, and it's been so much fun to use I left my HS10 at home!
You can see some of my pics on my blog; toptravelgear.blogspot.com
Would recommend this to anyone wanting an ultra compact travel cam, it has a very useful lens and feature set, better in low light that I'm used to, and not too shabby at Macro either......eight and a half out of ten from me :-)

Being a novice in the world of picture taking, I am trying to learn the settings as suggeted by more experienced users. As a "point and shoot" camera with so many features to improve picture taking, I am anxious to apply some of these features as my experience so dictates. One of my complaints from day one (even though I turned the GPS feature "off," has been the fast depletion of power by the camera from the battery. Within less than 24 hours and few pictures taken, the battery is dead. If anyone out there have any suggestions as to how to extend the life of the battery, I would welcome them on this web site.
