Mine's not an S1800 - it's slightly older, it's an S700, and it's great, even for how old it's getting. The pictures come out well enough for what I need, it takes incredible action shots, etc. I'm assuming the 1800 is just this year's model, I really don't know what the numbers are supposed to mean but a year after I got mine they had the S800 and it was identical. As much luck as I've had with this one, I'm leaning towards another Fuji when I replace it.
And don't take this as bashing, or crabbing, or anything - just information. You can't bump a question like you do a post - putting bump in a reply in Q&A doens't move it to the top, it's just another reply. So it was kind of a waste of your time to "bump" your question. Just letting you know - not everyone realizes it!
Have a good day, and have fun camera shopping!
