If you´re looking for a pocket-size camera with image stabilizer, Ibelieve the Panasonic FX-5 is the only one. The other cameras suggested here are quite big. Especially the FZ-10.
Do you want this "shake control" for telephotography without using a tripod, or do you want it for indoor-photos without flash and to prevent spoiling the picture because of shaking hands? If you´re notinterested inthe big zoom, I´d go for the FX-5. On the other hand, awider aperture-range might be as good as an image stabilizer in the ladder case. Any opinions on that anyone?
