thxIf you have already read Jeff Keller's review of this camera, (look in the "Reviews" link above), do you like or dislike the photos in his sample gallery? A general issue with long-zoom cameras is the EVF, which often goes dark in low-light situations. The C-765 has no AF illuminator to help you in this case, both to be able to see your subject, and also to help the camera focus on it. If that problem is a deal-killer for you, you might look at the Panasonic DMC-FZ3, which is almost as small as the C-765, has an AF illuminator, and also has longer zoom range and an optical image stabilizer.
