    Default camera advice

    looking at buying a 'bridge' camera and after trawling the tinternet i've whittled it down to choices. Either the panasonic lumix FZ38 or the canon SX20IS. i asked the local camera shop place their advice who pointed me in the direction of the panasonic... but they would as they didnt do the canon, so if anyone has any opinion i would appreciate it.

    I bought a Panasonic FZ10 to get into digital after years on SLR film. Been an excellent camera, so good my wife bought one as well. Several of the members of the local photo club also use more up to date Panasonics, not heard any complaints and we got asked to submit some of ours in the club competitions.

    FZ38 gets v good reviews, not familiar with the canon, but I see its powered by AA's so for me its a no-go (would never buy another camera that uses batteries!) let us know what you go for & post up some pics!

    could also look at the Panny TZ10 (?) out soon, an upgrade on the P&S TZ7 but with manual controls, will not be as bulky as the FZ38, & not have the same zoom & will probably be more expensive!

    been looking at these also, again reviews vary but there seemed to be more negatives with regard to image quality than the fz38... can see me buying some plain paper and crayons and drawing pictures!!!

    The gadget show (ch 5) recently did a review of bridge cameras, think it was the panasonic came out tops. No doubt it will be on their website.
