    Its time for me to buy a camera.
    After a lot of search i have end up with this
    Fuji FinePix S2000HD
    Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H20
    Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8
    For some funny reason i know that panasonic its much better but i dont have the budget.
    Beside this witch do you think that is better?
    I want manual settings for aperture and shutter and my main priority is not the mpixels but the quality of the picture.
    Thanx in advance

    If you like the Panasonic FZ8 but can't afford it and are just looking for a superzoom with manual controls and good image quality, I'd consider the FZ7. I couldn't find it on that site and it seems there is no ebay.gr or amazon.gr :lmao:. Seeing that skroutz.gr site makes me wish we could use the Greek alphabet since it looks so cool (I can read it but don't know too much Greek despite being half Greek).

    I have one... and LOVE it. it has many of the same features as a started DSLR with 10X optical zoom. I am not sure what the lens equivalent would be... but I am pretty sure its over a 300mm. so great zoom, 9mp takes some really amazing pictures if you know how to use it or want to learn. relatively compact, wont fit in your pocket tho. I love mine and am happy I got it. now I just want a DSLR tho
