Part of the problem with reviews and comparisons of the FX7 is to what it's getting compared with. At the time I was getting mine, lots of people were saying go for the FX1000, as if it was only slightly more, but it was nearly 800 extra. There are lots of better cameras than the FX7 especially in low light, but I've not seen any at the price.

Well, in my neck of the woods, 800 is not an insignificant sum of money - it works out to $1472.01 CDN. When the pound was trading at $2.00 or more to every $1.00CDN, the difference would have been almost a whopping $1800.00.

I just got my FX-7 about a month ago and really like it. After doing the research, I concluded that it's the best camera in that price range. The FX1000 was over what I could afford to pay. I usually don't shoot in that low of light, and if I did I would use lights or except what I get.

I have an FX7 and have to say that in "low light", such a wide range of light levels for that term, the cam is not too good, but is workable....to a degree. Have shot outside at night on a fairly well lit street, and the resulting picture was OK, not great, but OK. Picture was grainy, with some color; and that was on full auto.

Daylight? Now that is a whole different matter.
