    I've been a fan of Fuji for some time, my current camera is a Fuji
    4700 Zoom.

    But, I want to upgrade to a new camera, to be used in a growing
    interest in landscape/seascape photography. I want some manual
    controls for experimenting with pictures. I also want to be able take
    those holiday snaps!!

    I have had a good look at the Fuji S7000 - which seems to have all the
    features I'm looking for. However, I've been looking at alternatives
    and wanted to know what the NG thought of the Panasonic Lumix
    DMC-FZ20b?

    Many thanks

    Hi,
    If you're getting serious, time to get dSLR. If you need to choose
    between S7000 and FZ20, FZ 20 has anti shake optics. I have one.
    It does make difference.

    For landscape photography wouldn't a tripod make more of a
    difference? And on a tripod, antishake reduction isn't desirable.
    While a DSLR with a decent lens would be a step up, both the Fuji
    and Panasonic can take seriously good pictures. Depending on the
    photographer's needs it may be insufficient, just as a DSLR may not
    meet other photographer's needs. Then it's time to consider MF and
    LF and also consult a financial advisor. :)
