The S1000fd design allows you to do many things that you can’t with a digital SLR. For instance, using the 2.7 inch LCD to compose your image, rather than having to lift the camera to cover your eye.
Using the zoom to reach virtually any of the major focal lengths, rather than having to change lenses and possibly see harmful dust enter the camera, not to mention missing the shot. Also, the mirror-free design allows you to enjoy the added functionality of a movie mode, which is something that SLRs cannot offer.
