    I'm looking at buying this to take images of brass, copper, glass and other
    shiny objects. I've heard it doesn't do well with dark images or low
    contrast settings. Any advice, or any other suggestions? I need a camera
    with a hot shoe and/or remote flash capabilities, smartcard and zoom/macro,
    possibly burst settings.

    Thanks for the advice.

    Mine works fine at all of the below. Pro version also gives you a cable
    release thread and a flash pc socket.

    Best accessory you can make/buy/steal for shooting shiny things is a light
    tent. To give even lighting around your subject.

    Easiest way to make one is to use a white cotton sheet or xxxxl t-shirt or
    two and a hook and some string, Basically suspend it from the hook in the
    ceiling or lightstand or whatever so that it drapes around (but not on) the
    subject and illuminated from either side. (Think over bed mossy net).

    Wait for a few months, and get the new Fuji s7000 - same body and optics as
    s602, but with a brand new 6 mpix sensor that can output huuuge 12 mpix
    photos! Also has USB 2.0 (if I'm not wrong) and XD card support. Estimated
    price: 799 $

    Thanks for the advice. I found out it's coming out in October. Any
    suggestions on a good digicam for around $250 in the mean time? I need to
    get something with a smartcard and I'll settle for any flash for now. I just
    home I can adapt filters to the camera.
    Thanks again.

    It has no contrast settings. Perhaps you heard rumours about a
    different camera.

    As far as dark images goes, is has unusually low noise for a given
    ISO. Its ability to focus in the dark is the same as any camera with a
    big lens,CCD, and no built in lamp.
    It is a good camera. Has 1.8% distortion at wide angle though. There
    are software things to correct though.
