    Anyone have one?

    What do you think about this camera?

    I'm on the verge of buying but would like some real life feedback?

    Thanks,

    It's a noisebox. Go to dpreview.com and have a look at the
    samples above 80 ISO.

    Also, go to the Panasonic forum there and look at what the users posted.
    Not a great camera.

    RE: Compression
    The specs also list three levels of JPEG compression as well at TIFF and
    RAW, all firsts for a Kodak point & Shoot. Now if it were just as small
    as my DX6440.....

    1. Sony R1
    2. Fuji 9000/9500
    3. Samsung 815
    4. Panasonic FZ30

    I just changed from Olympus C750 to FZ30. Its a great camera. No noise
    issues for me. The resolution is so high on this camera, that you can do
    more noise filtering if you really think you need it, and still end up with
    a sharp picture.

    Compared to my Olympus, the FZ has similar noise at ISO 80 to the Olympus at
    ISO 50 and the FZ is far better than the Olympus at ISO 200 and ISO 400.

    I have some test shots on my site to compare the two... These are highly
    magnified so you should not think this is the noise you will see i a print.
    Its just for comparison.

    Enjoy,

    I see noticeable noise from both cameras as 50/80 respectively.
    Both have noticeable CA as well. The noise at 200 looks like
    my C8080 at 400, underexposed by 2 stops. But you are right,
    the FZ30 has less noise than the older Olympus.
