I will buy my first digital cameras soon and i am a bit confuse after checking alot of reviews

I'm basicly searching for the best bang for my buck in the "AFFORDABLE BIG ZOOM" cameras categorie...

here is what i found that could problably get me satisfaction (even if each and every one of theme seems to have there highs and lows)... I included the lowest price that i could found in my area (montreal, canada):

- Fuji S5100 (550$)
- Nikon coolpix 4800 (489$)
- Olympus C-765 (539$)
- Canon S1 IS (579$)
- Panasonic Lumix FZ3 (569$)

Any opinion and comment that could help me make my choice is welcome

Thx in advance...

were thosep rices in candian? if not check out www.circuitcity.com you will find some of them there. the fz3 is less then $350.

if you search some other sites through streetprices, pricescan etc you will find all are less then $400.

on the camera, thats a personal choice. i am partial to cameras with IS since my father shakes quite a bit while he takes pictures.

i just purchased the fz1 for him for about $160 at viking and it is working great.

you may want to check out the other forums under each model to get opinions.

good luck and enjoy your new camera, whichever one you end up with

Those are definitely in CAN$...

If you care about video, get the Canon S1 IS... if you don't care about video, it's hard to beat the Panasonic DMC-FZ3...
