not ready for a dslr, just want to take functional images. would like to get a camera to compliment a decent cell phone camera combination. use the cell phone for point and shoot and one of the below cameras for situations where you know you will be taking pictures:

casio exilm ex-f1
hi speed, good video still

panasonic lumix dmcFz1
lower cost, good zoom, close up?

anyone used these camera's

Go with the Lumix. Why? Because it has a Leica lens, and, Leica makes the best lenses out there.

Oh, and an admin might move this to the Imaging forum.

I have very good experience with the Casio Exilim series. Great camera and VERY durable. I now have a dslr but my mom uses the casio now, and still works perfectly. I like the pocket size and very light weight camera.

I keep a Sony DSC-W120 in my car a lot, in case I need it.

My dSLR and lenses don't fit in the glove box as easily.

It was the best camera I could find for low-light (high ISO3200 is clean!), small size, and under $200.

I am very much an amateur when it comes to photography... I use a Nikon Coolpix S600 and I am happy with the quality of the pictures and how easy it is to operate.


A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
