I just bought a new Fujifilm camera although I already have a Nikon D5100 and Samsung WB150F cameras. The compelling reasons are
- 30x zoom for travel and nature photography (birds, landscapes)
- Much cheaper, less than 15,000 pesos than a 50X zoom camera by Canon at <= 26,000 pesos!
- Much smaller than the Nikon dslr
- Manual controls with S,A, M settings
- convenient 360 degree panoramic mode
- tiltable lcd viewing screen
- electronic view finder
- flash shoe!
