My wife and I are shopping for our first digicam...
I want the Panasonic Lumix FZ10 (4MP, 12x optical zoom, $900), she wants the Nikon Coolpix 8700 (8MP, 8x opt.zoom, $1240). She thinks that 8x10 prints from the Panasonic will not be good enough quality.
Cool... great stuff Cailean! All the best on your purchase, and do share your thoughts on the camera when you do - would love to hear some feedback.
yeah ..adam .. letds get together a compilation ..and then go print it ...
we should go print one of these days .. .
hrmm 8mp ... i say ... the larger the quality the larger the file . the larger the memory you need .. the larger the hole in ur wallet. ..
itd be nice if they made a 35mm sensor ..so that the lens' effective focal leng will stay the same .. but i guess they want things smaller not larger. ..
well .. youve made you descision anyways... all the best with your new cam .. im sure ull have lots of great moments with it.
Thought I'd let you all know that we did buy the FZ10 and we love it! The 4.0 MP are more than adequate for the 8x10s and leave lots of cropping room for nice full-frame 4x6s.
Thanks for your input!
Great! 12x stabilised lens... drool...
Do post some pics up when you've got some!
Good Work mate .. good to see you made your descision ..
yeah share some photos when you get the chance.. ^^
uhauha .. i got plenty of reflective photos as well ..
its no that bvad ...
I wondered if I should use that avatar or not... I just thought it was cool because the slow-sync flash setting allowed me to do it without "flashing out" the whole shot!
Yes, the 12x stab. lens is VERY nice. Took some concert photos tonight... perhaps I'll share those - some at full wide, some at full tele, etc.
how does it handl when you are using the full tele mode ?
ive never used IS so i dont know how effective it is ..
