    I have a relative asking for me to find them a camera suitable for :-

    - indoor child portaiture
    - indoor photos of house renovations
    - more than 3x zoom

    I have a Panasonic FZ3 and love it - but I just stick to low ISO usage in
    good light or dusk/night shots of still objects on a tripod with longer
    exposures. Smaller sensors obviously mean more noise at higher ISOs and the
    pannies seem to be particularly noisy.

    Even so I was thinking of recommending an FZ20 since it has a hot shoe and
    the IS might mean they can get a stop or 2 extra anyway.

    Anyone care to suggest an alternative non dSLR that would be good indoors?
    Presumably an AF assist lamp would be a must.

    Or perhaps there budget might stretch to a canon 300D on run out @ $1299
    with kit lens and a $50 voucher to use in house - maybe towards a 70-300
    tamron ($229) or a 90-300 canon ($269) both f/4-f/5.6 vs ($879 for the
    FZ20). I know it's cheap glass but might still be a better indoor/low light
    proposition albeit for more $$$.

    Thanks for any recommendations/comments
