Need to find AA battery operated superzoom

15 Jul 2013 8:54AM
Hi, I am looking for an advice. I have a 6 year old Olympus SP550UZ and I've been happy with it until I went to a safari with my sister who has just purchased Panazonic Lumix DMC-FZ200. Her images are much more crisp and detailed than mine and therefore I want to buy a new camera before we go to see puffins next weekend. I have to admit I'm lazy and haven't studied how to change the settings and use really auto options only. I mainly take photographs of landscapes, wildlife and flowers and use the camera when we are travelling and therefore I'm looking for a camera that is AA battery operated. (just met a crying lady on the safari because she has forgotten her charger)
Nice size zoom would be great for wildlife shots but image quality is my main concern. Need to be rapid (she took 15 in the time I took 1 photo) and have enough megapizels as well as I do get some images printed A3 size. I've been reading camera reviews but I'm just more confused at which camera to get. I have to travel to the nearest big city to find a camera shop and I'd like to have a shortlist with me when I go.
Has anyone tested the new Fujifilm Finepix S8400W? any recommendations would be highly appreciated.

Thanks! Local Curries doesn't have it here but hopefully I'll get to see it later this week.
