    Question Choices of Prosumer Cameras

    Hi,

    I'm rather new towards prosumer cameras..

    currently looking for a prosumer camera to start with....Would need some help with regards to the 2 cameras that I'm looking at.. I'm completely lost between the choice..

    1. Panasonic FZ18.. (retail price: SGD749 , 2GB card, carrying case)
    2. Sony DSC H7.. (retail price: SGD599 ,2GB card,carrying case)

    A difference of 150sgd..

    and im not sure whether can i justify the $ difference.. lol... (being new towards photography)..

    lost. arhhh..




    Cheers...

    there u see.. the price difference is down to $108.. and not to forget Sony always place a premium price over its products.. so a higher price might not necessary mean a better camera..

    Was quite interested in getting a prosumer some time back as a carry-around. Comparing spec-for-spec, I would actually go for the fz-18 (even though i am quite a Sony supporter and using their alpha700)

    Handling and performance wise you really have to handle the cameras yourself to judge.

    Never consider Canon S5IS?
    Nikanon D3FXMarkIIIDS-1H with 5000mm f/128 & 0.500mm Macro f/0.4 & 0.70-2000mm f/256
