    Question Looking for a good allround/enthusiast/zoom camera

    Hi

    I'm new here in this forum and i read a lot of postings. I need your advice on choosing a new camea.

    I'm looking for a digicam like the Panasonic FZ 30/20/5 and Cybershot H1. I own a Cybershot DSC-P5 yet but I like to have a bigger and faster one. I had the opportunity to test the DSC-V3 which is a very nice camera, but it has unfortunately only 4x zoom and no stabilizer.

    What I use it for, what i like to have:
    -Family, Nature, Sunset, Nightscenes, In-/Outdoor, portrait
    -at least a 10x zoom and a good image stabilizer (a read, that the stabilizer
    in the H1 is not as good as the one in the Panasonics)
    -at least 5 MPixel
    -fast AF and shooting times (like the DSC-V3)
    -as less as possible image noise
    -good display
    -good video capabilities (at least 640*480 if possible)
    -superb image quality in, if possible, all situations

    Which camera fits best for my needs or do you know better cams? Or should I wait for the Panasonic FZ 30 which will be released in September?

    Thank you very very much in advance.

    Greetings

    i just got my H1....typically not a sony fan but this camera is really good....nice sharp images, very light (since it only uses 2 batteries) and has an amazing super macro....i was touching my subject wiht the lens...i was that close and the pic was incredible!

    go for the H1-you already know sony......

    Thank you for your advice. Are you happy with the image stabilizer and the AF/shot-to-shot times? I read, that the sony steady shot image stabilizer isn't as good as in the Panasonic FZ30 for example.

    And can you recommend the FZ30. It's a really interesting camera, because of it's load of features. Is the image noise (mentionend in the review) a big problem?

    Thank you very much again and greetings

    happy with the sony all around but you're right...the shot-to shot is a bit slower than i'd like...however i didn't get my memory stick yet...only am using the internal memory.....
