I've also heard some people "pre-focus" on the area the will want to shoot at. And of course I'm sure you tried it but the burst mode might help at least capture close to the shot you want.
If possible I would decide btwn the fz3 and fz20. The 20 being bigger, more fully feautured and higher mp 5
That said. I have the fz3 and have been testing it out trying to decide. One of the...
sony p150, by far smallest of bunch and super fast but only 3x zoom. also less manual features.
canon s70, also less manual features...
use it on fz3 which is great b/c while you might miss the exact shot you want at least you can get a clean non blurry image within a nanosec of orig.
btw had some 8x10 fz3 sent to me via...

Sorry I'm a newbie myself and can't offer much useful detailed info.
search forums at http://www.dpreview.com/ they have great info& resources.
People will say; it depends on what you want...
It's noticeably lighter than any other 5mp camera I tried. Good pics and when I carry it it's so light I often forget it's with me.
Sorry don't know much about others
don't feel badly we pay 50% more for our medication so you save the money there. Enjoy the camera I can't wait to pick mine up.
If the prices you listed are all USD then I would say the fz3 is priced well and I would def feel good about the fz3
Pana DMC-FZ3 475.00 USD
Minolta Z3 528.00
Canon S1 IS 495.00
I'm confused I thought you originally said the fz3 was 475 usd? now you write it's 742? If so I agree that's too much and would probably also try the z3 over the s1 just b/c I like image stabil and...
how much is the canon s1 up there?
tough call. doesn't seem like you really have many options if you want the fz3 features.
Too bad you can't just buy online from JandR or bhphoto.
Sorry I don't have better info but that's a...
Have s5i and may swap for ex-55 (like to bigger lcd) but still have to go see it. s5i is by far the best "smallest" camera I have ever owned. It's literally so light I forget I'm carrying it around...
not sure fz3 has hotshoe and lens aftermarket.
fz20 (500-600) will probably do much of what you want and more but also quite a bit bigger.
Just got the s5i yesterday. So far so good. I don't have much photo experience so not sure if I can help out much but after having oly c-50 have to say these pics are as good if not better, esp...
I figured I'd ask a more realistic question.
pana fz20 $575 (hard to find discounted)
powershot pro $700 (seems like a great deal for extra $125)
nikon 8800 $899
Basically, is nikon worth the...
Compact-med size (e.g. pana fz3, oly 770-7000, pentax 750)

oly c-7000 I think 7mp 5x opt
pentax 750 also 7mp 5x opt.
both a little bigger than 770 (not much)
