Off Topic – Digital Cameras

Lisa and I have been discussing buying a new digital camera.  Right now, we have a 5 MP Sony and a 6 (or maybe 7) MP Panasonic Lumix.  The biggest reason we are thinking of upgrading is to get an ultra zoom camera and the ability to use additional lenses.  We’ve looked around and have a list of cameras that interest us.  Does anyone have a recommendation or an opinion on the ones below?

  • Panasonic Lumix FZ8
  • Canon Powershot S5 IS
  • Sony DSC-H7
  • Panasonic Lumix FZ18S
  • Canon Powershot S3 IS


  1. Depending on how much you are looking to spend, I’d look at a Canon Digital Rebel or the Nikon D series. The D70 is supposed to be a pretty good camera, but I think it is only 6 MP.

  2. Just don’t do Kodak…my first and only digital camera (so far) was a Kodak EasyShare that died a year and a few days after I got it, right after the warranty expired.

  3. I think everyone that has ever touched or even looked at a Kodak digital camera knows to avoid them like the plague.
