Default Advice, Fuji, Nikon

My only experience so far with digital cameras is with the Fuji S6500fd - this is a great camera for low light (interior) photos
and for photos of people thanks to the face detection system. There are some points to think about regarding the S1000fd

1. it does not have a thread around the end of the lens so you will not be able to mount filters or additional lens components
on it (for astromony shots I would assume that it would be difficult to connect to a telescope)
2. if the aperture range is similar to the S6500fd then it will only go as far as f8 (I have just purchased a full slr digital camera
so that I can get a bigger range of aperture settings)
3. the fuji cameras are "bridge" cameras - basically compact cameras with an slr style body and some features found on a
full digital slr
4. I am not familiar with the Nikon but for similar money the Sony alpha range offer a good alternative (and can use virtually
all of the minolta lenses ever made)

Saying all of this I am keeping my fuji camera of interior and portrait photos but for everything else am using the slr.

Hope this helps
