I'm trying to decide based on image quality now between these cameras... it's hard to tell... I was comparing some sx10 to fz28 and the Canon's looked crisper/clearer in some, not so much on others... what's everyones opinion of which of these 3 have the best image quality (color, crispness, least fuzzy/distortion) in terms of your standard shooting indoor/outdoor with no added flashes and stuff... just what the standard package brings to the table... on comparable photo settings.

I have had the FZ28 for about a month. I am impressed by its image quality. The SX10 I handled in a store and took some shots with my own SD card. My impression is that the FZ28 shots were less noisy at the same ISO settings. I don't know about the H50.

Image Quality is, in my opinion, partly subjective, and partly objective. It is also influenced by photo sharpness for me. So I really don't know that there is a truly definitive answer.

As I mentioned before to you, I am a professional digital camera instructor, and am currently working with the Olympus SP-560, the Nikon P-80, the Sony H-50, and the Panasonic FZ-28. It is just my opinion, but I actually, like robbo,prefer the FZ-28 as the best all around camera with excellent image quality.

Here is a photo taken at 8:00am from the back deck. You can investigate the detail from foregroun to background. Then if you want I will provide an H-50 sample.

Yes, I know it's going to have a subjective aspect... thats why I was asking since some of you have greater experience and likely know what to look for quicker than I in comparison shots of the same subject... cameralabs.com had a few photos of fz28 vs sx10 for a long zoom in on a river/grassy area and a snow capped mountain peak... the sx10 appeared crisper on those but I looked on the fz28 picks for othe shots and they had better/equal on some other photos... i'm still learning the iso/lighting/aperature/etc stuff and how it affects the image...thks for the feeback
