Years ago, when Panasonic stepped into the digital camera market, their cameras were cutting edge and the retro design was unbelievably sexy. Since then they've lost the retro feel and gone for something more up to date. Not a big deal as the camera...

Pansonic FH8 vs. SZ1

 

I may raise my rating after a couple more months. Though bigger (appreciably) in size, it's lighter in weight than my tiny (practically) invisible Canon SD780. So it "seems" more plastic and mass-produced--which has nothing to do with performance.

FH8 still has generous zoom (5X) if not comparable to the SZ1 or ZS20. Moreover, it's tested out just slightly ahead of the SZ1 in terms of movies and lag time. Significantly, the SZ1, which was pegged at a price between the FH8, is now falling to the...

I seem to detect a warmer, richer, deeper, more complex image from my Canon (SD780), but no sharper. I've had 5-6 Canons, and this is my first Panasonic, so I may be biased
