I'm not really a "newbie" to Photography, but I need some advice on my current situation.
I currently own a 6.0 megapixel Panasonic DMC-FX10 which has optical 3x zoom (35-105mm), and have been saving up for a DSLR.
Meanwhile, I'm thinking of having a replacement for my 4 to 5 years old PnS, and my budget is less than $1000.
I would like to have slightly longer reach than my current PnS, manual controls, HD movie recording, and probably higher ISO limit with acceptable images (currently limited at ISO 1250).
I understand that all these are achievable with a DSLR, but there are just times where a DSLR is too bulky and the extra weight is just not worth bringing out.
Hope you guys out there can recommend me something. Thanks in advance!
