There was mention of the Panasonics but not the FZ10, which is a great camera for the money, has great optical zoom, anti shake, and is usually $499 at all internet stores. Also now the new Minolta Z3 has the same capabilities for the same price. I have the Panasonic and it does a great job and is very easy to use.


Is there a reason why would you buy the older FZ10 when the FZ15 is available for less?


FZ10 has a hotshoe.

I was impressed with the Panasonics when I was shopping, but I've heard bad things about their quality/reliability. Those of you with them, have you had any problems?


Looking on Consumerreports.org, the order from fewest to most repairs by brand:

Sony About 3%
Panasonic
Canon
Olympus
Fuji
Casio
Nikon
JVC
HP
Minolta
Kodak
Pentax
Toshiba About 9%


Is it repairs per unit, or just total repairs?

When you go from a 3.2 megapixel camera to a 4 megapixel do you see a big difference or not really?

The Digital Rebel is a good camera. It should be going for about $700-800 at around Christmas time. If you want to go better, the Nikon D70 is the way to go. I'm not sure if it will go down in price any time soon though.
