Hey Treemonkey, what happened to your monkey avatar?! :-)

I believe you are using the correct term; "Refresh Rate".

Before I bought my FZ20 (2 weeks ago) I did a fair amount of research on several 5, 7, & 8 mega-pixel digicams, including the EVF and LCD refresh rates. Most of the higher end digicams in this class have a refresh rate of ~ 60fps. However, try as I might, I was never able to find out the refresh rates for FZ's. As far as I know, for some reason, Pana does not publish those specs.

I 'tested'the refresh rate of the FZ20 by comparingit with other cameras of known refresh rates. My 'test' was VERY amateur ... all I did was pan cameras across a given view inside a camera store at an approximate set panning speed. Kind of hillbilly I admit, but it was the only thing I could think of doing.

The FZ20 'appeared' to have the same refresh rate as the best of the cameras I was comparing it to, that being ~ 60fps.

Hope this helps,
Hillbilly from 'The Great White North' :cart:
