A few of the FUJI HS10 features I liked.
It AUTOMATICALLY sensed your eye in the viewfinder and switched to it all on its own!
When you moved your eye away it went back to its screen mode. How handy is THAT!
Twist barrel for faster zooms
Pro low light takes 4 shots (In different exposures) and combines them into one best image.
That alone sounds GREAT! Sounds more like the HDR images we had spoke about in another thread!
AND it also has a motion remover.... It takes 4 shots and removes meandering tourist from your scenes replacing them with the natural background!
One drawback being....It has quite a few less pixels.

I hope to be able to get a hands on feel of both the Fuji AND the Panasonic.

I'm in no hurry.... Not much around here to take photos of but icicles...
I need to get out into nature for a walk real SOON! My escape in the woods is calling me...

Another very interesting one to explore since they've DOWNSIZED the DSLR.....
Sony Alpha NEX-3K Black 14.2MP DSLR Camera, 18-55mm, 3.0" Tiltable LCD, 720/30p HD Movies Customer Ratings & Reviews - Top & Best Rated Products - Walmart
and this...
Sony Alpha NEX-5 Digital Camera Optics - Full Review - The Imaging Resource!

Any opinions on these????? They'd capture the low light shots in the forest better but I do not know how much of a macro it's capable of????
Maybe have to buy another lens which could become rather costly plus there's the worry of dirt in between things when switching the lens.

Could a macro be put on and STILL be capable of taking everyday shots eliminating the need to change lens?

I guess no one has any opinions on this type of a camera option...
Hmmmmm Maybe too good to be true?

I'm not sure how digital technology handles macrophotography, but with my old 35mm SLRs, I seem to recall taking 'ordinary' shots with my 50mm macro lens. You might try a PM query to Dave Stiles...

I don't think Dave S shoots macro much. You can do macros just fine with the Lumix and that's probably true of the other cams as well. Then later get the Raynox if you feel the need for super macros.

Sorry, I'm not up to speed on the new Sony but it's worth checking out. I think it's similar to the Panasonic 4/3 models in the G series.

My son's girlfriend was talking about getting either the Sony Alpha NEX-3K or 5K if it is available....
I'll be disappearing for the weekend again tomorrow for a jaunt up to see them next.
I hope (Fingers crossed) she's already bought it so I can see what it's capable of.
I'll let you know all about it upon my return.
