I would agree with stare_at_the_sun on this. I read the reviews, then handled both the Pro815 and the FZ30 and took some sample pics and easily decided on the FZ30. The Pro815 is a pretty good camera but FZ30 more or less beats it in all regards...

Lol...yeah, that beast has a whole lotta zoom on it.

It also has a problem with image grain at high ISO's though, therefore just turning up your ISO sensitivity in place of IS doesn't work too good on it.

It would work fine outside on a sunny day though I'm sure...but low light shooting wouldn't be so great.

I'm tellin ya...the Panasonic FZ30 is the way to go. It is cheaper than the Pro815 and has better image quality.

Just my 2 cents...

Nice to see a Canon user recommending Nikon. Have you seen the light? :)


Lets try to keep the discussion somewhat serious. :)

I did for a moment consider selling everything and getting the D200 - it would be nice to consolidate my disparate collection of lenses and the D200 is a super camera.

But that idea is slightly more hassle than I care for, plus I still have two EOS film bodies (one of which is a wedding backup option) and enough background knowledge of Canon products that I cannot be bothered to re-learn for Nikon! I may look at the 20d replacement, or just be happy with the super camera that I am lucky to already own.

I would recommend the Canon Powershot Pro-1 as well. I have one and it is a great little camera. 8 mp and tons of manual settings, even shoots in raw. It has a super macro mode as well. The only thing lacking really in my opinion is the 7xzoom. Not the best for close up wildlife photography. But everything else about it is fabulous!

Apparently Nikon has ... I heard they are discontinuing almost all of their film cameras.
