    I hear you!

    I was shocked by the amount of noise in that picture. Seems to me that that is the noisiest picture I have ever seen on a digital camera review site. It looks noisier than the FZ20...

    The main advantage that I see for the FZ20 in that situation is the ability to manually focus. The FZ5 is strictly an auto-focus camera. Since it takes time to auto-focus, you may find for fast...

    Point well taken about the length of the season. My strategy is to enjoy being on top while you're on top, because (as you correctly point out) it might not last! In other words, the time for...

    In a racing situation, where you know racers are eventually going to get to a certain spot on the track, I would recommend manually focusing on that spot on the track, and waiting for them to come to...

    I personally like my pictures to have vivid colors... so I have my FZ20 set to "High Saturation"... and I'm the guy that took the Hibiscus photo. If you prefer less saturated photos, just set the...

    As long as you make a habit of preparing the camera for the shot by depressing the shutter button half-way when you've got it all lined up... there is almost no lag to speak of. There has never...

    I've been using the Sunpak 383 external flash with very good results. It's quite a bit less expensive than the Panasonic external flash.

    Jeff Keller to review FZ20

    I'm looking forward to reading Jeff's upcoming review of the FZ20. I have a feeling he'll like it. What's not to like?

    I didn't seriously consider a digital SLR... simply due to the price. Go ahead and price out a digital SLR with a zoom lens comparable to what's on the FZ20... and you'll see we are talking about...

    To answer the first question... yes, you can use the FZ10 AC adaptor to power a FZ20. In fact, I did it when the camera arrived and I had not yet charged the battery.
