    Pana TZ1 vs Sony DSC-H2

    Hi all, I would like some advise in choosing which camera to buy. There are only 2 cameras left on my list. The obvious difference between the two cameras is their size. As I'm a traveller, that's a big pro.
    The only thing I'm concerned of is the difference in image quality. If it's not too big, my choice is the TZ1, otherwise the H2.
    Is there a big difference or not?


    Around 400$


    The smaller the better, but I always wear a backpack, so size isn't THAT important


    How many megapixels will suffice for you?

    At least 5mp

    * What optical zoom will you need?


    * How important is “image quality” to you?

    Very important

    Do you care for manual controls?


    General Usage

    * What will you generally use the camera for?

    Travel pictures mainly, but also some indoor shots probably

    * Will you be making big prints of your photos or not?

    Max 20x30 cm, or 1 size bigger. No poster format.

    Will you be shooting a lot of indoor photos or low light photos?

    Most outside in daylight

    Will you be shooting sports and/or action photos?



    Are there particular brands you like or hate?

    I'm choosing between Pana TZ1 and Sony H2!!!

    Imaging Resource just did a review of the Sony H2 if that may help:

    You can check out my short review about the TZ1:
