I think I'm quite new in photography since I'm currently using my parent's Minolta Dimage X31 and have less experience in dealing
with cameras therefore I may require help in selecting a new digital camera to begin with.
The problem is
1) I have problem taking night photos.
2) I feel that its 3x optical zoom is not enough for me to take distant objects.
3) I feel that its lacking of manual options which i think i might require later on when i get better.
4) the camera takes a long time to save the image onto the memory card which in this case I'll usually miss my next shot.
After reading reviews from websites like www.dpreview.com, I've currently rounded off my choices to either the Fujifilm Finepix
S9500 or the Panasonic FZ30 and might buy one of them during the IT show next week. Therefore I think its better I ask for user
opinions from people who may have actually own or used the cameras before.
Judging from the reviews, it seems that the S9500 is able to take pictures with lesser noise and can focus well in low light.
Apart from that, I need to know
a) whether they'll take a lesser time to save the image on the memory.
b) whether taking pictures at long zoom eg 10x on the S9500 without the image stabilizer will be too blur.
c) are there any accessories to upgrade the camera with in future if i need to (eg add on lenses).
Thanks in advance and maybe hopefully to join you guys in taking good photographs in future.
