the Fuji (which you liked) and the Olympus (which I am partial to since I own an Olympus C2100UZ). Both cameras are in the 3 megapixel range and offer good macro (essential in my opinion for model photography) with the Oly beating the Fuji by 7cm (10cm or the Fuji versus 3cm for the Oly) To fill the image with model, you have got to be close to the model.
I do own a Fuji 4800 which I don't like one bit. The focusing algorithim is not good. Every picture I took with it was blurry and out of focus. I hope Fuji has fixed that problem by now.
The one thing I didn't like about either of the two cameas I compared was the lack of a remote control. With a remote control, you get your hands off of the camera (please use a tripod). This will help imensely in getting sharp and clear pictures. I use the remote when photographing the models at my local IPMS meetings and no matter how bad the light, I can allow the camera to use a long exposure setting (1/2 second and longer if needed) and still get good pics.
My best advice to you is to go to a good camera shop or computer shop that has these cameras and try them out. Bring along coin and try out the features and macro. If they are a really good shop, they'll allow you to print the photo you took to compare which is best for you.
I can't tell you which one to choose, you make that decision yourself, but if I were to go out an buy a camera for myself, it would be the Olympus C2100UZ all over again.
The picture below was taken with my UZi at full macro and with the smallest arpeture. Even at this range, the front and back of the model are still a little out of focus, but keep in mind the model is only 2 inches (5.28cm) away from the camera (the barrel was about one inch). The Fuji can't do that.
