    just based on specs....

    I'd opt for the FS5 due to wider angle so family and friends will not need to squeeze together as much. And for the IS which will help you fight against blurry picts due to handshake. Cams at this...

    Take your pick

    Greetings Susan,
    The models you are looking at will meet your criteria, provided a basic knowledge of photography is taken into consideration. Since DSLR's have internal settings such as saturation,...

    Your choice

    The macro function on the newer cams can help with this. From what I've seen, the longer zoom cams offer better macro results than standard zooms and also have a lot of additional add on lenses...

    Are you using a tripod? If so, that's the only benefit Live view will really be (IMO)and negating IS (it needs to be turned off when on a tripod).

    a small DSLR (about the same size as a FZ50)?

    You are going to run into this with P&S zooms, and if they are good with the higher ISO's, then they won't have the reach you want.

    Evf Dslr

    I myself don't use the DOF preview either, but rather the test shot function to gauge my shots/histogram.

  14. RE:which one Panasonic DMC-FZ8 and Olympus SP-550 UZ

    My vote is for the FZ-18
    The SP550 suffers from soft images at the long end and prone to focus hunting. Also you would be stuck with the slowish xD card format with this.
    The FZ-18, I'd take the...

    It will always be there.

    The brand stigma.
    You'll never get away from it, so you just got to learn to live with it. If you're happy with the output with what you have, then that should be easy.

    Here's my take:
    1) DOF preview- I don't use it, I use the test picture option to check metering and WB. All you do (for both) is hold the Fn button (with thumb)the same time you depress the...

    This is a great cam for the price, especially with the 2 lense kit. I followed people's reactions and tests since it's release. The price drop in Oct. 07 here in the states prompted me to buy...
