I guess your drain got bamaged along with your camera, Dan
those fuji finepix are pretty decent cameras for the price. I have been looking at gettng one of them myself ever since I used my cousin's a year or so back. I don't do professional stuff so I don't really need to sink the bux into a super great rig, but I do want one that will take pretty good pics.
and like you stated in the thread you mentioned above..
"Don't get too extravagant. Dan ... you don't do studio stuff. You shoot in the field. And if your shooter gets whacked in the field, which isn't a matter of if, but when, you'd much rather cry the blues about three digits worth of oopsy, instead of four ... or five.
(I can tell myself your quote word for word.. cause my name is Dan, too.
