Hi,

any rumors about the cam will replace FZ35/38? ... I love Fz38 and I'm going tu buy, but I would wait if FZ48 has a tiltable LCD screen...

regards
marco

The tilt LCD screen is on my "wish" list. I miss it.

Marchino and Clint-

Panasonic has not used a tilt screen very often. So please don't get your hopes way up there. I new model is expected, but Panasonic has been releasing the FZ new mods usually around July or August.

marchino-

Yes, I do think this is a good time to purchase the FZ-35/38. At least here in the USA, the FZ-35 is currently at it lowest selling price.

Yesterday for the first time, I tried viewing the FZ35 screen from the odd angles, as in an overhead shot, a waist level shot and held out to my left, as in sticking out a car window and shooting forward. I was pleasantly surprised at how effective it was. I honestly think it's a pretty good sub for the tilt screen thing since it goes into action so much quicker.

Once again, Panasonic has lived up to their advertising.

It's probably too early to predict what will be on the new FZ, if and when. However, I sadly predict that it will have longer zoom to compete with the other long zooms. This will make it heavier and clunkier.

I thought it came in handy when I'd take "people pictures" at work. Many times I would hold the camera at my waist and tilt the LCD screen. My "subjects" would go about their work and not "pose" or get camera shy like they sometimes do when they see you pointing and aiming the camera at them. But I wouldn't trade in the Z35. As Setter Dog says, it does very good and just pointing, half press, then press again.
