    Budget:
    Up to $1,000

    I picked up a TZ1 at Costco on the way home from work. It was only $190, which is $40 less than anything I have seen on the web. I hope to get to taking some pictures in the next few days!

    Lens flare on TZ1?

    The review at Imaging Resource complained about lens flare from the TZ1. The review otherwise is quite complimentary and does not even mention noise. I wonder from those who have used it whether...

    The Leica V-Lux 1 is listed at B&H with a two-year limited warranty. I cannot find the warranty listed on the Leica site.

    The Panasonic warranty sure is stingy. The FZ-15 has been troublefree,...

    Gene,

    I didn't know that Panasonic now has a one year warranty for the FZ50. The B&H site said 90 days and others did not indicate. I will confirm that when purchasing. I'm certainly leaning...

    Agreed

    Yes, I never buy extended warranties, either. I just am a little tentative about a complex electronic item with only a 90 day labor warranty. It seems $10 per year for the Mack warranty might make...

    I like the idea of Traveling Zoom and Far Zoom, John, but that leaves the FX and LX sort of unexplained. I also like Mike's idea of consistency, of a sort, of a series such as the FZ.

    Extended warranty by Mack through B&H

    I saw the Leica V-Lux 1 in a camera store this evening and really appreciated the manual zoom. I found it well made, but I can't imagine the Panasonic is not very similar. The viewfinder seemed not...

    White balance on K100D

    I have read in more than one review about white balance problems with indoor lighting. Is this satisfactorily addressed by using a tungsten setting in the camera or do you require post-processing?

    Can someone explain to me what a UV exposure unit does? Is it limited to use with film negatives or applicable to digital? How would it be used professionally?
