"Panasonic Lumix DMCFZ30BB"

So I bought this camera two years ago and I think it's the best in compact category. I'm not a professional photographer, but I'm really intrested in taking photos. If you need a professional-like camera but you don't want to buy an SLR, this is what you need. The pictures what I made with it are really clear and beautiful. The stabilizer is extremely good. I've got really shaking hands, but the picture is clear. I really love it. The 12x optical zzom is controlled with a ring like SLRs and not with buttons. It makes the camera more SLR-like, speeds up photo taking and spares the battery. It works with a special battery, and I really alert you, buy only original Panasonic batteries, the others are flat in a few hours. So I think if you're looking for a new camera, buy that!
