While I was up in the far north, I was fortunate to have not only my old reliable Minolta Maxxum 3xi (35mm), but an associate from work loaned me his Nikon Cool Pix 5000. I noticed that in some cases the Nikon digital brought in more color and vibrancy than my 35 shooting 400 speed, high color film. Tell me what you think.

I would ask a question of the assembled group. Up till recently, I’ve been considering a high end automatic digital to augment my photography activities. Particularly, I’ve been leaning heavily towards the Konica-Minolta Z5 (12x optical zoom & 4x digital). I’ve also looked at the Canon 2s 2x. I’d be interested in opinions on these or other cameras.
