Fuji S7000 vs Panasonic DMC-FZ10 vs Olympus C770...

Discussion in 'Panasonic Lumix' started by Andrew Morris, May 24, 2004.

  1. Hi Folks,

    looking to upgrade my Fuji 2600Zoom, to something in an SLR-type digital...

    I like the look of both of these, but also looking for other opinions...

    Things I'm considering:

    AA batteries - I would rather them, as I have 3 sets already, and they're
    available from servos at a pinch
    minimum of 6x optical zoom.
    decent low light performance
    ability to use a filter (UV, Haze, etc)

    Cheers,

    Andrew

    Looks like you've already made the decision for yourself Andrew. The
    Fuji
    S7000 is the only camera of those mentioned that runs on AA batteries.
    The
    Fuji's low light performance won't be as good as the FZ10's (with F2.8
    fixed
    and optical image stabiliser) but you're still working with a nice fast
    aperture
    of F2.8 - F3.1 across the zoom range. I wouldn't use the S7000 at 12mp
    though - the noise becomes an issue. The Panasonic is the better camera
    for
    mine, but you won't see one around for at least another month.

    Koob, mate

    Can you hit "Quote" when you reply instead of "Post Reply" so that we can
    tell which part of your post is yours and which bit you are replying to.

    For anyone outside of EYO's forums your posts are hard to decipher.

    Ken,

    I do hit "quote" and if I don't adjust the prior message, this is what
    happens.
    I alter it to (seemingly to me) make it easier to understand. Could
    you
    elaborate on what I'm doing wrong?

    Whatever you did this time worked.

    Sorry I can't help more, I use a new reader to access this group rather than
    the EYO web front end.
