I am a newbie buying a camera with the hopes of becoming a decent photographer. I don't want an SLR at this stage, but would like a decent point and shoot.

After doing a lot of asking around, the Powershot S3 looks like a good choice, but so does the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ8. Both cameras seem to boast similar features, but the Lumix seems to be a bit less expensive.

I plan on taking landscape and night photographs. Is one of these cameras better than the other?

I am not personally familiar with either of these but did read about the Powershot and it does seem like a really nice camera. I personally like Canon so that might be why. The only thing about it is... I think the Powershot uses regular batteries and they do not last long in a digital camera. I like the lithium ion batteries because they hold charge well. But you could get rechargeable batteries! :)

I am sure someone will have some insight for you!!
