"If one takes their time and concentrates on the framing of the subject when taking a photo shot you wouldn't have to rely on such a post editing technique such as this."

I agree entirely, but this software does enable the production of the type of shot only available with a high end digital SLR camera - for instance sharp subject and blurred background you see in newspaper sports photos, which is very difficult to achieve on a bridge camera, even on my Fuji HS10. It's also a lot of fun.

Unfortunately the Fuji designers saw fit to include a plastic thread for a tripod fixing on my camera, which I use sparingly - usually just when my Raynox telephoto Conversion Lens is fixed, for up to 60 x optical zoom!
