    Just want to buy a Digital Camera, never had one, i want a good one
    and one that takes movies is a must as well, even if they are low res.

    640by480 15fps 25 minutes on a 512meg Xdcard is ok i suppose, beats
    having a camcorder with you as well :p

    Anyway was going to buy the 3.2mp version, but now the 4mp versions
    price has come down to a price i can afford well could afford the
    higher price but the lower price makes me want it more now :)

    Ive read some reviews it seems good, just want some first hand,
    reviews on it.


    /ps Can you connect and external LCD to it, you know so you can point
    the camera, but not look where its pointing at the LCD on the camera ?

    Just like to know any camera have that ?

    Thanks again.

    I have a 770, 8080 and a Nikon D2h and have enclosed an outdoor shot taken
    with the 770 with the background removed in Photoshop, it may help you
    assess the lense quality. Although this camera is a comprimise, it does a
    bit of everything, it is very good at everything it does without excelling,
    I like it very much. It is relatively small has an external flash shoe, has
    a decent lense and is reasonably fast. My main complaint is red eye if I use
    the built in flash, so I use an external, the 8080 does not know how to do
    red eye.

    The 770 is a lot better than the older 720 for image quality that's compared
    with the Pan FZ10 by another replier. The FZ10 is about the same quality as a
    750 and I would rate the 770 as being similar or slightly better than the 750
    (I've got one) for image quality. Any purple fringing is less than or similar
    to other x10 zoomers, is only in the corners and is easily corrected for with
    either -0.3EV or in Paint Shop Pro with the moire filter which gives perfect
    results. The choice is mainly down to whether you really need x10, the price,
    and size, it's the smallest x10 which is worth a lot for convenience. I thought
    it did 30fps by the way ..........
