    I'm currently looking to get a digital camera along the lines of a Pentax
    Optio S or a Fuji Finepix F410 for personal use in a social setting (day and
    night) and also
    for pictures at gigs that I attend with low-light conditions.

    From reading on-line reviews, I prefer the F410 over the Optio, but I
    have also read that the Finepix suffers in low-light conditions [ see
    http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/F410/F41PICS.HTM ]

    Can anyone lend information of different experiences with these models or
    suggests others which would be more suitable in the small 3/4~MP range?

    Thanks Kindly

    Cameras with a bigger lens - around 3 or 4 cm in diameter are far better at
    low light conditions as they offer a greater f stop.

    im quite happy with my Minolta Dimage f100s low light pics and focus
    abilities (I'd say much better than the PDR M700 I have)..

    In low light situations, I just put the camera on some tabletop and
    click with the remote whenever I feel like :)
