    FujiFilm 5600 or if you can wait, the new 6500.
    Fast start up,no shutter lag, high ISO, plus the ability to take RAW and relatively cheap.

    Yep, I bought S3 for my June trip to London & Paris. And I glad I bought it. I brought Ixus i zoom along too, but end up using S3 for most of the trip.

    S3 would be a good choice as it had much better improvements over S2.
    while FZ7 is rather disappointing in terms of improvement over its smaller brother FZ5.
    H2 would perform better of the 3 in terms of noise performance.

    Morning all,

    newbie here too, just curious, since u guys were on Canon's S3 vs Panasonic's FZ7...

    I was considering getting a new Canon S3, understand it allows for certain manual controls (something my current P&S Kodak doesn't...) cos always had faith in Canon cameras, but was quite impressed with Panasonic's MEGA O.I.S... so was looking at the new FZ50...

    Mainly concerned over Panasonic's infamous "noise" problem... but Canon does not have any stability assistance like MEGA O.I.S. yeah?

    Can any of the seniors here enlighten me, pls?

    Thank you,
    Eric

    Canon's IS works similarly to Panasonic's MEGA O.I.S.

    not a senior here but i do know panasonic is well known for being noisy due to its small chip size not to mention i own a pana as well.
    so its low light performance is really not that good as ISO 400 is unuseable.
    while ISO 200 still seems okay.
    in terms of canon IS and panny O.I.S i think they pretty much offer the same stability.
