I am looking for a camera with full manual capability (so that I can learn!) but it has to be compact and lightweight (with batt <550g). Any recommendations?
From other threads, seem like Lumix FZ18 is recommended, but do I really need 18x zoom? Am hoping for something that is more reliable especially in low light.
In short, something compact and light, with a little bit more than the consumer's camera of 4x zoom and reliable in low light.
