For those with S3's, Fuji has announced a camera buffer upgrade that supposedly speeds things up and with the additional memory allows you to buffer more images while writing them to the card memory.

Also there are a number of upgrades to the PC and MAC software, including drivers for WIN 98. This is available on the Fuji site. Fuji site

If you haven't discovered S2 Pro site there is also a software upgrade there for free and you can get the FREE Thom Hogan S2 book... I think. I got mine a long time ago, the offer is still there though.

A friend told me his S2 died of the CCD problem. I haven't checked my serial number yet, thus optimistically stalling off the possibility I may also be affected eventually.

My S2 CCD died on me just before Christmas and I had not even heard of the problem they where having till I called another photographer here in town that shoots with the S2 as well and told me all about it. I was able to send it in to Fuji thinking OK I will not see my camera for weeks. I over nighted it on Wednesday and bought a S3 on Thursday I got my new S3 and the S2 back on Friday of the same week. I was so happy I was still able to shoot that weekend with the S2.

Thanks for the link I try now to stay up to date on the recalls of the cameras every couple weeks.
