    Bear in mind the test was Jan 2004 - so things have changed somewhat since then with new cameras etc.

    I have one of these, as at the time it was the best reviewed camera for the money. I cant fault mine at all, and I know that one photographer for Total Vauxhall uses it as his back up. The action shots are good with very increased button to shutter speed. The 12mp isnt technically correct though, as this blows up the 6mp shot and interpolates inbetween, brings in some noise into the picture. theres really no need to shoot in 12mp mode unless you printing posters etc!!

    I have a wide angle lens converter on mine, which makes life easier for most things, meaning you can get in closer for the same shot. Bin the compact falsh card - they are too slow in these and get a 512mb XD card for £40 - much better.

    They have all the options of a full SLR, except the change in lenses. I think these cameras are still as good as the new ones comming out today. I paid £300 for mine a couple of years ago.

    TBH, I'm not really up to speed with that level/area of cameras for obvious reasons. Sure, technology is always advancing and you get more features, more megapixels (not always a good thing!) etc.

    If this one does what you want it to do, the price is right and it's in good nick, then I'd say go for it.

    All I would say against these type of cameras is the lack of being able to change the lense completely. If you get into it in any real way, you'll find this a little restictive, but for taking some very nice shots at a complete amatuer level (like me) you cant go wrong. Where it shows its class is in low light, giving a nice warm picture where cheaper point n shoot type cameras will be a little fuzzy. Id post up a picture taken with mine or take a look at the Yorkshire Region Feature Car thread, I took those with mine.

    Technology does move on, but it doesnt always take a better photo?

    Thanks guys,

    Hopefully the guy has brought it in today. I always get annoyed with the kodak point and shoot camera I have because the zoom is never good enough, and with action shots I press the button and miss the target, or the moment has passed. I see the delay on the s7000 is 0.2 seconds which has to be good.

    What I'm really after is a camera that'll take great scenic/postcard shots and give me good closeups when at airshows, displays etc.

    We bought the S5600 recently and although I played hell with Drinky about the horriffic price we paid for it (I am a tightwad!!) I must admit it is a cracker - event with less features that the S7000 you're after, it it great, and pretty user friendly despite the functions it has.

    I love the zoom as well - my youngest son is completely phobic about being photographed, and since we had the S5600 I have been able to grab some belting pics of him from a distance, with the quality of a close up shot!

    After playing with the S56OO, it does take exceptionally good low light level shots.
