Would appreciate feed back from anyone who has compared the Panasonic FZ3 to Olympus c-770 or c-765.

I'm trying to find an EASY, ACCURATE QUALITY OUTPUT, ZOOM that REQUIRES LITTLE OR NO POST PROCESSING WORK.

Are either of these cameras going to be close to giving me that? Easy camera to use now, and good manual setting to grow into it?

Which camera did you choose and why?

Image stabilization trumps all. The FZ's are the most fun I've had with a camera in a long time.

Cant figure why Cam companys are wasting time adding movie modes to their products..
When I looked for a camthe last or rather least thing that concerned me was movie modes.. I would opt for a Movie Cam instead if I wanted more Movies etc..due to the specialization of the product.

Wish they would stick to making Cameras - "Cameras" and spend more features on the Camera and forget movie modes.. etc.. I would have liked IR mode on my FZ20 iso the Movie mode..

for me movie mode is a grat addition my camera. Its something different to do on a camera.I have an Olympus 765 ultra. Its great for me as I'm a student and money is tight, so if your on a budgetand you want an olympus cam get this one. The 770 looks good but imagenoise is slightly worse, and it has a hot shoe which i dont need.Olympus zooms are small and light unlike the Fz models. Theysure are heavy.AlthoughIfI had the money I would have gone for the Panasoniczooms as they look fun.

Have a look at this site for in depth review of olympus zooms
