choose one: S5000 or S5100
Help me choose one over the other. Is the 5100 just a newer version? Do any of you have any experience with these, and would they be a good first digicam? I need point and shoot for my wife, and I want a good zoom with some flexible features. These look good to me, but want others opinion. Thanks..

Yes, the 5100 is just a newer version, with features that may or may not be important to you. Check the reviews to see the differences. I don't have experience with these particular Fuji's, but I do own two Fuji cameras. Their build quality is as good as any other camera in the same price range. They work just fine, and in fact have held up quite well for the time I've had them. If they have the features you want at the price that's right, then there is no reason not to go with them.

All of these are "mega-zoom" cameras like the Fuji's, but have image stabilisation technology, which is something the Fuji's do not have. PhilR...

Just been through this same decision for my brother. The S5000 would have been better for him than the S5500/5100 In the end he got a Canon S1 IS for a little more (10) than the Fuji, which he will save on the cost of memory cards...

Thanks, that would be great. So far, I have found a place on the web that sells them for around $270 I think this is a good price, do you agree?. I have never used a digital camera before, so the point and shoot will come in handy, until I learn some of the more advanced features. You can put the pics on the forum, or send to Thanks..
