Pros
  • Excellent IQ for a prosumer cam, RAW mode if needed
Cons
  • focus lock could be a little faster
I have been using the S7000 for two and a half years and have gotten excellent results with it. Though there is a RAW mode (contrary to what the OP said), I shoot most of my pics in 12mp fine soft jpeg and get excellent prints from them, often with no more post-processing than to crop the pic. Fuji seems to have an excellent jpeg engine in both their digicams and their DSLRs. Since the S7000 is no longer in production I would recommend one of it\'s decendants in the S9xxx line.

In reply to the questions about tripods and heads.
I am useing a carbon-fiber Monfrotto tripod with the
Acratech ballhead.
The tripod is light enough to carry and the ballhead
holds the scope and camera very nicely. The stiffness
of the tripod is noticeable over other tripods I have used. There is less vibration in the wind.
The smaller weight makes it worth every extra penny
in cost. Have not priced them lately.
